Cremorne Point & The Tea Room Gunners Barracks Wedding: Marianna & Hernan – Part 1

Marianna + Hernan. Wow, what a wedding day. Their amazing families. Joyous laughter and tender emotion. A killer venue, a gorgeous day, a dramatic sunset. I don’t think we could have asked for more as photographers, and I’m SO excited today to share Part 1 of Marianna and Hernan’s GORRRgeous wedding in Cremorne Point, Balmoral Beach, and the Tea Room Gunners Barracks. The day began with the girls getting ready at the quaint Cremorne Point Manor, which is a really beautiful little hotel on a quiet street. Marianna’s absolutely stunning wedding gown is, fittingly, by Mariana Hardwick. As a fellow lover of flats I was quite in love with her jeweled wedding shoes! Her lovely flowers were done by Plumbago.

I have to say, after meeting Marianna and Hernan’s families, I can really see where they get their sense of humour and jovial personalities that you may have caught a glimpse of in their engagement session. The whole wedding party was in the BEST happy spirits all day. There was so much laughter, I just loved it. It was partly the laughter, partly the heartfelt emotion at their ceremony, partly the intimate nature of their wedding that had us at the end of the day wishing that somehow we were a part of these two families too. Marianna’s mum has to be the most fun and happy mother-of-the-bride I’ve ever met!

The amazing (and rather famous) celebrity stylist Helen Dowsley did the hair and makeup for the girls, and as you can surely see she did an outstanding job!

Marianna was looking like a goddess in her “Athena” gown. Then, suddenly, Marianna’s father opened the door and caught a glimpse of his beautiful daughter. There were tears all around.

Meanwhile, Hernan was getting ready in his sister’s company over in Mosman. These two were an absolute riot together! You could tell from the get-go that they have a really special bond. It will become even more apparent as you see the day unfold.

While the ladies put the finishing touches on their makeup, Hernan took a chance to take in the beautiful view at Cremorne Point before getting his first look of his bride.

Marianna and Hernan decided to see each other before their ceremony at the Tea Room Gunners Barracks. We absolutely love it when our couples want to do this. Their family members hid away for a short while to give Marianna and Hernan a chance to have a moment alone. A “first look” can be a great way for you and your partner to have an intimate moment away from all your guests. We had Hernan wait with his back turned until Marianna appeared.

What a good looking group!  We knew how much Hernan and Marianna like jumping photos, so of course we had to do one. Everyone was game! Awesome!

Next, it was time for Bradleys Head, the beautiful hilltop just outside the Tea Room Gunners Barracks.  The view extends from the mouth of Sydney Harbour all the way to the city skyline. It is a stunning spot!

The families arrived early for some photos with the bride and groom before their ceremony. Normally we don’t post many family formals on the blog, but we just love this spot!
