Julia & Jonathon

There is something to be said that is a wedding that is traditional, classic and simple. It’s beauty shines through with traditions,  the echoes of those that have gone before. Today we celebrate the wedding of Julia & Jonathon who celebrated their beautiful wedding day in a classic Sydney wedding.

Julia and Jonathon tell the story of how they came to be. “The bride and groom met in a hostel in Prague while both were traveling. Jonathon was from Australia taking a year break from studies and Julia is from Austria. They maintained a long distance relationship for 2 years while Jonathon finished his studies in Sydney and Julia worked as a medical doctor in Germany. Julia finally moved to Australia in 2011 to be with Jonathon and that’s when he proposed.

3 months after the first wedding we had a second wedding in Vienna. We went through the great experience again.”

Photographs are by David Henry Photography who captured the day simply and beautifully.

    Awww what a lovely wedding. The photographs of the Sydney skyline is quite breathtaking. I caught sight of the reception table numbers and they featured little birdies (am I right?) those were pretty cute. I’m assuming the wedding invitations carried the same theme as well. Lovely wedding, and congratulations to the couple!
