Manly Wedding

Blanca and Grant’s Manly wedding had so many heartfelt and emotional moments. Where do I begin….

Blanca and Grant chose St. Martin’s Church in Killara to have their wedding ceremony.  St. Martin’s is a beautiful old Anglican church with high ceilings and stunning decor. There simply couldn’t have been a more suitable venue for Blanca and Grant’s big day. It was truly heartwarming to see their whole community come together to celebrate their union. Corinne and I particularly loved the releasing of the doves that Blanca and Grant did to symbolise their love. I am however still left pondering where those doves ended up flying to upon their release…

For any given portrait session I ask couples to allow one hour (perhaps knowing than in reality I’ll get half an hour if I’m lucky). When I first met with Blanca and Grant, they told me they were after a classic look to their wedding photos with a touch of elegance. They also mentioned they’d allowed 3 hours for this! 3 hours!!! I couldn’t contain my utter excitement! A wedding photographer’s dream come true!

We decided that Swain Gardens, with its lush green gardens and walkways would be the perfect spot to begin the portrait session. I was particularly excited to photograph at Manly Pavilion and have my take on this epic location. I couldn’t have been happier with the images from both of these stunning locations.

Blanca and Grant’s Manly wedding concluded with the reception taking place at the Manly Novotel. Corinne and I particularly enjoyed capturing different perspectives of the first dance with our bounce flash and off camera flash set ups. Be sure to scroll down to see these gorgeous images!

On a personal level, Blanca and Grant are two of the most generous and warm hearted human beings I have had the pleasure of photographing. We connected instantly at our pre wedding meeting and Corinne and I felt like guests on their wedding day. We should also shout out a big high five to Grant’s mum for making such a beautiful wedding dress for Blanca! Incredible, huh!

Thank you so much Blanca and Grant for having us a part of your big day. I can’t wait to share your wedding images with you both shortly!
