Rose Bay & The Blue Room Wedding: Nic & Fred – Part 2

OK everyone, if you thought Part 1 of Nic & Fred’s wedding was stylin’, hold onto your horses, because Part 2 is about to blow it out of the water! But before we got to that water bit, we had some important business to take care of. After their ceremony, there was only one place Nic and Fred really wanted some photographs: at The Argyle Bar in the Rocks, where they first met. The Argyle is a very cool spot out on the town, and I think it fit quite well into the overall theme of looking cool and living large! A big thanks to the Argyle staff for being so friendly and accommodating and letting us shoot these special photos for our bride and groom.

This is the very spot that Nic and Fred stood when they first locked eyes.  I said something about how romantic and sentimental it was, and then they both said something to the effect of, “Yeah, who would have thought that a boozy night out on the town would lead to this day?” Haha, I love these two!

After the Argyle we wandered down to the harbour edge for some sunset shots with the must-have icon of the Sydney skyline.

Then came one of my favourite parts of the night. While we had been snapping photos in the Rocks, Nic and Fred’s guests had been at the pub wondering where the reception was going to be.  That’s right, Nic and Fred kept the location a secret and told their guests to report to the Rose Bay marina at a specific time.  They were greeted at the dock by The Blue Room, one of Sydney’s newest harbour dining vessels.  With the guests already on board and out at sea, we had only one option of course… to meet them in the middle of the harbour!  This jumbo water taxi picked us up and shuttled us out to meet the ship.  It was perfect timing with sunset and it felt like we were characters in a James Bond movie, dressed in our finery, setting out to infiltrate the fancy party and take down the bad guy… OK, maybe that was just me. But it was pretty cool and certainly glamourous!

After zooming away from the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, we finally got our first glimpse of the reception venue…

The downstairs dining area looked stunning, decked out with white orchids by Butterfly Philosophy, and a magnificent cupcake tower by Burnt Sugar Cupcakes. They looked YUM!

When the skies went dark and the lights came on, it looked even more magical.

Up on top of the boat, the retractable roof was wide open and everyone was enjoying the beautiful warm evening under a starry night sky.

Nic and Fred’s family and friends had an amazing line up of speeches in store for them. So many kind words and good laughs!

During dinner, we were treated to a brief and unexpected fireworks display! Luckily we were poised with our telephoto lens on the roof at just the right moment in between the speeches!

And, I just have to say, these desserts right here are the most delicious thing ever. We got to try them on a reconnaissance mission of the Blue Room prior to the wedding. So, we know they must serve them all the time. They are kind of like a berry pavlova with ice cream and chocolate bits. OMG. It’s almost worth booking this cruise ship just for the dessert alone! ;)
