Edwina and Ben

Classic, romantic weddings never go out of style and today’s wedding of Edwina and Ben, who married at the university where they met is nothing short of a classic romance story.

Edwina tells of how they met. “We met at Sydney Uni in our first chemistry lecture”.

Photos are by Welsch Photography who captured the classic romantic style of today’s wedding beautifully.

Edwina and Ben held their ceremony at The Great Hall, The University of Sydney the very same place that the couple first met! The couple chose their 12 year anniversary as their wedding date.

Edwina walked down the aisle to Handel’s ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’.

The weather was beautiful for their wedding day. Edwina recalls, “We were so worried about the weather as rain was forecast. The day before was very wet and on the morning of the wedding it was overcast. We were certain it would rain on our day. Luckily the weather cleared in time and the whole day was sunny. The weather held until just after we got to our hotel suite that night and then it started to pour. We stood at the doors to the Juliet balcony watching the rain and thinking how lucky we were to have had such a wonderful wedding day, and all with the sun shining on us!”

The couple even revisited that chemistry lab that held the story of their first meeting.

The reception at The Tea Rooms At QVB followed the classic style of the wedding. Edwina notes “The Tea Room staff were highly professional and accommodating.”

Faye Cahill styled the cake and Edwina’s sister designed the stationery and invitations, Edwina explains “My sister did all the graphic design work, designing the invitations etc and even a monogram as a theme for our wedding.”

The wedding was styled by Raymond Ware, The Styling Company.Petals with Passion created the floral arrangements. Each guest received a customised matchbook from Mi Bride and Groom.

    What a beautiful wedding. Such a wide variation of photos, rich in colours. I particularly like the warmth Welsch has achieved in the ceremony shots. Well done.
