Sydney provides such a nice variety to the beach and bush weddings I am used to shooting. No better, or worse but as a photographer it’s great to have that variety. It is also nice to experience variety in religious and cultural traditions. Last Saturday I had the great pleasure of photographing Mary & Mark’s wedding in Sydney. Mary’s family hales from Egypt and so a traditional Coptic Orthodox ceremony was held to celebrate their union at St George’s Church in Kensington. I have photographed many Greek Orthodox weddings but this was the first time for me shooting an Egyptian Orthodox wedding.
After the ceremony, the couple were joined by a large gathering of family and friends at The Refectory, Sydney University. The classic architecture of the University was the perfect setting for their traditional wedding and The Refectory looked amazing. This beautiful old room was gorgeously styled for a casual, cocktail reception which I’m sure all of the guests enjoyed.
Thank you for letting me capture and share your day guys.
