Sydney photographer Angelica Peady has been doing some fantastic things lately and I’m excited to share with you her new series of couture bridal portrait shoots called “We Were Late To the Wedding Because…” The series consisted of twelve shoots, all over Sydney based around fun reasons the bride (or couple) were late to their wedding day.
There is such a sense of glamour around today’s couple! The bride even surprised the groom by hiring three matching red 355 Ferrari’s for transport to the church. This was on top of the 2 Harley Davidson Motorcycles and 4 classic accompanying MK5 Jaguars (which were provided by Royalty Wedding Cars).
The guests were treated to s six course feast, complete with a live pianist at Le Montage. A tortured willow inspired theme for the day included features at both the church and reception. Table centrepieces featured towering white willow encased in tall vase with mocha satin ballerina tie. The bridal table was also adorned in a full length entwined willow skirting which took 4 hours to create.
Aleks says “The first dance was to ‘Spend my life with You’ by Eric Bennet and Tamia which was a long time favourite of the bride. We could not help but sing to each other throughout the dance.” The three tier wedding cake (the “Chloe Design”) was created by The Cake Studio.
Entertainment was important to Aleks and Aaron- Jason Jackson, Australis #1 Michael Jackson impersonator performed and then took willing guests through a dance performance.
Aleks says “Reception music included both Serbian and Italian cultural dance followed by a mix of classic and modern day hits.”
With a spectacular start it was only fitting that Aleks and Aaron left in a spectacular finale. Aleks says “Our departure was electrified by a tunnel of fireworks which made for an extremely spectacular finale! To top off the night, we didn’t just leave in the typical getaway car but instead left on water in front of Le Montage aboard a 46ft Cruiser en route to our harbour hotel stay.”
Thank you for sharing your wedding day with us Aleks and Aaron! Congratulations on your marriage! Thank you also to John Benavente Photography for sharing today’s images!
An urban Sydney celebration today! The wedding of Aleksandra (Aleks) and Aaron. Full of Sydney details, rich colours and a grand finale, it’s a celebration that had me smiling from ear to ear!
The couple shared how they met. “Aleksandra and Aaron met through a mutual friend who is in fact one of Aleksandra’s best friends and was one of our groomsman, Adrian. To this day a humorous argument ensues each time we recall the first days that we met. The central point of this argument is about “who pursued who”. The man in the middle, Adrian, has never weighed in or taken sides in this debate and so the story still remains unsolved! It was until the wedding that the truth come out and the groom Aaron confessed that it was in fact he who chased Aleksandra like a love crazed little boy. Who would have guessed that seven and a half years later they were to marry!”
I have a glorious wedding for you today, but before we get started I thought I’d share with you the wedding video of today’s couple Aleksandra and Aaron! Today’s video is captured by No Limit Pictures. The film crew also created a video that was sent to guests as Aleks and Aaron’s wedding invitation.
