Observatory Hill & Sails Restaurant Wedding: Jen & Ben – Part 3

After a beautiful wedding ceremony atop Observatory Hill, Jen and Ben treated their guests to even more spectacular views from their classy reception venue at Sails Restaurant on Lavender Bay.

Awaiting the guests inside were a super adorable cake and a cute and colourful lolly buffet made by Jen’s cousin. It looked too good to eat!

Once the bubbly began flowing, the newlyweds made their grand entrance!

And the guests were welcomed with some heart-warming speeches.

As any Sydneysider knows, the beautiful harbour really sparkles once the sun has set. With all their guests well attended to, Jen and Ben snuck a few private moments outside to enjoy the last bits of daylight and reflect on everything that had just taken place that day.

Before they knew it, they were back inside celebrating with many of the most important people in their lives.

Being a chef himself, Ben had high standards for the food that would be served on his special day, and Sails delivered!

Jen and Ben had chosen to do a cocktail reception instead of a sit-down dinner, which I thought worked out great, as it gave them heaps of opportunities to mingle with their special guests.

There was a fantastic line-up of beautifully written speeches, starting with Jen’s brother, who delivered a touching speech that had many guests misty-eyed. Jen’s Matron of Honour and Ben’s brothers also had the guests laughing, crying, reminiscing, and toasting the happy couple.

Jen and Ben finished things off with their own beautiful speeches, which read more like love letters to each other. I love it when the bride and groom speak, as it gives me a chance to hear more about our couples. Jen revealed that the first time she realised how patient Ben was, she thought to herself, “This man is going to be my husband one day!” Ben recounted an uncertain time in his business a few years ago, when Jen offered him the words “I believe in you.” Ben refocused and very quickly after his business skyrocketed in success. Patience, encouragement and support—it’s a magic combination in a marriage. Jen and Ben truly seem like they will be there to support each other in the years ahead!

Of course, Jen and Ben‘s first task together as husband and wife would be to cut the cake. And as they were about to toast to their marriage, right on cue, some fireworks exploded across the harbour in the distance. It was the perfect icing on the cake! Get it?

Fireworks or not, the atmosphere at Jen & Ben‘s wedding was hard to beat. It was the perfect combination of good weather, good food, and spectacular scenery.

Jen and Ben opened the dance floor with a well-rehearsed first dance! Nice moves, huh? The guests followed suit to dance the night away.
