Dunbar House Wedding: Emma & Carl – Part 1

Are you all feeling romantic? We have a Valentine’s Day treat for you today! We are just delighted to share the beautifully romantic wedding of Emma and Carl. We think you’ll all agree that Emma and Carl make the most adorable couple. They’ve known each other for ages, having first met when they were very young and both worked at Pizza Hut! Their relationship has come a long way since those first days in a humble pizza shop, and their wedding was a gorgeous, elegant, gourmet affair at Dunbar House in Watsons Bay. We’re so in love with all the elegant details, emotional moments and beautiful scenery from their amazing day! We all loved these lush pink peonies in the bouquets… and check out Emma’s breathtaking ring! Love!

Emma told me about her gown long before the wedding day, so I was very excited to see it in person and photograph it. This amazing organza and lace gown is a Vera Wang creation, the “Eliza” gown.

Ahhh, I love this dress. The Chantilly and Alencon lace is just to die for, and its ruffles and layers are soo romantic. It was so perfect for Emma, as you’ll see!

I had a lot of fun with the girls as they got ready in the Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel.


The view from Emma’s room was just lovely, overlooking the bay.

Emma’s bouquet was a perfect bunch of white peonies. The pale pink details for the bridesmaids were a perfect compliment!

From the hotel it was just a short walk over to their ceremony on the lawn in front of Dunbar House. Events by Nadia did a lovely job with the ceremony styling.

This amazing fig tree was the backdrop for their ceremony. I just love these trees!

Angela E - Looks like an unbelievably romantic and beautiful and fairytale kind of wedding.

Ian Stapley - The anticipation of having Erin and Jeff take Emma and Carl’s Wedding was hard to take having followed their photographic triumphs on their website for 18 months prior to the Wedding. What a fantastic eye for photography they have! There were so many comments that they were unobtrusive and so easy to have in charge of recording this wonderful event.

Thanks Erin and Jeff for providing our family and friends an eternal reminder of the joy we all felt on that day.
