Sometimes all you need is simplicity and elegance and this elegant Sydney wedding has all that and more! Sousan and Harvey chose a popular Sydney venue for their wedding – marrying in the courtyard before celebrating with their guests at a sit down reception and of course, the best part – dancing the night away! gm photographics were there to capture it all.

Sousan remembers, “There was a huge storm / mini cyclone from 3.30-4.15pm which we could see from our hotel as we were getting ready for the ceremony. The skies opened up and the sun shone just in time for the 5.30pm service!”

Sousan and Harvey held their wedding at Gunners Barracks. They both wanted a relaxed ceremony surrounded by family and friends, so chose the venue’s courtyard for the ceremony proceedings. Sousan remarks, “Many attending the wedding were from overseas and interstate so the Gunners Barracks was the perfect Sydney venue – a venue so unique!”

Gunners Barracks Reception

Celebrations continued inside at Gunners Barracks, the entire event planned by Events by Nightingales who worked with Maria Lush to create a beautiful feeling to the space. Sousan remarks, “All of our chosen vendors were outstanding, but the florist drew the most comments from the guests. The wonderful organisation of Nightingales and the venue allowed us to relax and enjoy the day.”
