I’m just giddy to share the photos from Nic and Fred’s fabulous wedding today! This was our second Friday-the-13th wedding of the year and it went off without a hitch under glorious blue skies. So ppffff-phooey to silly superstitions! Nic and Fred and their friends and family were absolutely over the moon on this special day and we loved being a part of it. We know that many of Nic’s family back in Ireland were unable to make the long journey to Sydney, so we hope all of you reading from overseas enjoy this peek into their happy day!
The day began with the girls getting ready at the very beautiful (and thematically appropriate) Blue Hotel in Woolloomooloo. The room was bustling all morning, but the bridal party remained relaxed and in great spirits.
Mark of Marked Hair Salon did a fabulous job styling the ladies ‘do’s. Katherine of DIVA Creations and Nic’s friend Sally did a great job on the ladies’ makeup. I was also super excited to see the floral creations by the wonderful Elaine of Butterfly Philosophy Flowers & Styling. The bouquets looked absolutely perfect!
Nic and Fred were a joy to photograph. I just love Nic. She is confident, she is sassy, she is classy, and she is fun! Fred is cool, calm and collected, and as you’ll see, oh-so-in-love with his bride.
Nic looked absolutely beautiful! Her father’s reaction when he saw her was so sweet.
The ladies were looking hot! Meanwhile, Fred and the boys getting ready nearby at the Woolloomooloo Waters Apartments.
As it turned out, none of the boys could work out how to tie the infamous double windsor! Somehow, the guy who had trouble with his own tie before our wedding (my hubby Jeff) managed to straighten them out after a few goes.
A little speech reviewing never hurt!
Nic and Fred’s beautiful church ceremony was held at St Mary Magdalene’s in Rose Bay.
It was so sweet to see Fred trying to hold back tears when he saw his wife-to-be for the first time that day.
After the touching ceremony, Nic and Fred had an amazing surprise for their family and friends up their sleeves for the reception. If the “Blue Room” doesn’t mean anything to you, let’s just say it’s not your traditional ballroom reception venue. And the way they got there was like something straight out of a James Bond movie! We can’t wait to share with you in Part 2, but for now, let’s congratulate Nic and Fred on this next step in their journey together.
