The Tea Room Gunners Barracks Wedding: Kate and Chris – Part 1

We absolutely love the photos from this emotional and beautiful wedding, filled with huge belly laughs and big fat tears. We love the photos just as much as we love the story of these childhood sweethearts! Kate and Chris’s relationship began like it would in a movie—on the train platform in year eight—when Chris had to work up the courage to speak to his cute classmate, Kate. As their friendship evolved over the years, they clearly became inseparable. Their journey together took them through school, through university and first jobs, and then overseas, where they got engaged while travelling in New Orleans. Kate and Chris had clearly won over each other’s families long ago. It was so heartwarming to see in the faces of all their friends and family just how much everyone had been anticipating this day that had come at last! Kate and Chris wanted to do a first look before their ceremony—the type of special wedding moment that we just love! Chris waited patiently for his bride…

I love Kate’s expression here, as she saw Chris standing with his back toward her as she came down the stairs…

You were a gorgeous bride, Kate!

Though Kate and Chris’s school days are long past, these two have certainly both kept a giggly, goofy side that is so endearing! I wonder what their 8th-grade selves would think of these pictures? :)

Kate’s lovely bridesmaids were so cute, sniffling in the background as they watched their happy friends.

Kate and Chris’s theme colours of green, white, charcoal grey-blue, and the palest pink were just lovely. Kate’s family did all the flower arrangements themselves and they looked fantastic!

After photos at the Tea Room, we took a drive out to Sydney Harbour National Park, to the Middle Head Forts for some more fun shots with the bridal party.

So beautiful!

The very lovely Lorraine Wright did a beautiful job officiating the ceremony. When Kate and Chris sent us a link to her website before the wedding, we laughed out loud… because the address is! Kate and Chris hadn’t made the connection that they had hired both The Wright Celebrant and The Wong Couple! Lorraine, great minds must think alike. Hilarious!

Kate and Chris did a ring warming as part of their ceremony. Each guest got to take a moment to “warm” the rings and make a silent wish for the happy couple.

Some of the most beautiful emotional moments happened during the vows. Chris started to speak, and had to take a pause. Then he just melted onto his bride’s shoulder. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Then, suddenly everyone’s tears morphed into contagious laughter.
