Amanda and Andy

A classic beauty of a wedding today- Amanda and Andy’s gorgeous Sydney wedding. If you’re in love with lacy, beautiful gowns, bouquets that look so good you can almost smell them and smiles as wide as the Sydney Harbour Bridge you’ll love today’s garden celebration. it’s classic Sydney really – a church wedding with a beautiful reception at one of Sydney’s most popular venues.

Our bride Amanda recalls the story of the relationship with her husband. “Andy and I originally met at high school but it took another 10 years till we met again.  
He proposed while we were on a family holiday in Thailand.  Andy had organised a picnic lunch and boat for the day, but unfortunately it was pouring with rain, so at the last minute, he had to change his plans and ended up proposing at a scenic lookout in the rain!   It was a very funny memorable day.

Photos today are by Milk & Honey Photography. I love Milk and Honey’s classic yet beautiful captures.  They’re so beautifully Sydney and capture the romance of the wedding day.

Amanda wore an asymmetrical lace gown from Sarah Devine Couture. She recalls “My dress was from Sarah Devine.  It was made from blush satin, with French lace and my veil was full length with a lace trim.  The dress was such a delight to wear and with its vintage feel, was everything I wished for in a wedding dress.”

Having her parents and friends around her on the morning of the wedding was important for the bride, who explains “I got ready with my three bridesmaids at my parents’ house.  The morning went so quickly, but we were able to take some great photo’s including some with our family dog, Charlie. I have 2 nieces and nephews, who we had great pleasure in dressing up. The girls looked gorgeous in their pink tutu’s. 
My bridesmaids wore dresses by Charlie Brown.  The pink of their dresses tied back with the soft romantic design of the invites and were enhanced by the beautiful flowers.”

Amanda recalls “Andy and I got married in October, at the beautiful St Peters Presbyterian Church in North Sydney.  
The interior of the church is just lovely and a wonderful church to get married in. We had a string trio, play Canon in D by Pachelbel as I walked down the aisle.”

Family and friends led to Amanda’s favourite memory of the day. “Andy and I were just so happy to have our family from overseas and friends there to celebrate our marriage with us.  It was such a beautiful day I wish we could do it all over again!”

The girls carried bouquets in shades of pinks, taupes, lavenders and greens. Amanda says ” I was really happy with the beautiful flowers Lisa from Sweet Violets put together for our bridal party and reception.  I was able to give Lisa some reference pictures of the type of flowers and colours we wanted and she really did an amazing job.  Every one commented on how gorgeous the table decorations were!”

Amanda and Andy celebrated with their guests at the Sydney Botanic Gardens restaurant. Amanda explains “As we had family visiting from oversees, we decided to have a real Sydney wedding. 
We were married at St Peter’s in North Sydney and held our pre-dinner drinks on the lawn, in the Botanic Gardens, with views of the harbour, before moving into the Botanic Gardens restaurant for our reception.”

The stationery took on the spring and garden feel of the wedding “My friend Daniella Spinetti, also did an amazing job in designing our invites, menu’s and table cards.  
Her design really captured the romantic theme and colours I had envisioned for our wedding”

The cake was a classic beauty. Amanda explains “Bill from Sweet Connoisseur made our 3 tier chocolate wedding cake.  
We kept it simple and decorated it with ivory icing, with a pink ribbon at each base, to match back with the bridesmaids’ dresses.”

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be
    on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you,
    I certainly get annoyed while people think about
    worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
    Thanks
