Most popular Wedding Photography in Blue Mountain in NSW

Having the wedding in Blue Mountain in NSW has becoming more popular over the years.,

I have noticed that a lot of people from Sydney drive up there to get married on Friday afternoon. Yes, it’s Friday!

So everyone can take a Friday off at work. You get there around the lunch time for the ceremony.  And stay over night after the reception party finish around 11pm.
So everybody can have a little weekend away after the wedding on the weekend.

Obviously, the bride needs to get ready way before that as well as someone like myself, photographer.

Let’s say your ceremony starts at 3pm and your ceremony review is just outside the hotel that you will be staying at.

I will probably need to get there around 1:30-2pm to photograph the bride and girls are getting ready for about an hour before the ceremony. Then if you would like me to stay til the end, it will be 10 hours. So you can choose my affordable 10 hours package. 

There are so many great places that we can visit to photograph after your ceremony before the reception in Blue Mountain.

If you are planing to have your wedding in Blue mountain NSW, please contact me early as  most of my weekends will be booked out early.

My Wedding Story Part Two

My Wedding Story Part Two

Only a few weeks before this scene, I saw another bride in Sydney that stopped all that nonsense right in the beginning. She told them all how she wanted it to go, and if they did not want to do it her way, they could just pack up.
At first the minister did not want to comply, but when se told her father to ask him to leave, he changed his mind. She then proceeded to have a very quiet ceremony that went exactly her way, with no interruptions.

Those two very different experiences made me think about how those of us in the wedding business go about our business. Sometimes videographers, ministers, and we photographers forget to honour the sacredness of the wedding. We also so see so many weddings that we forget this is the first and perhaps only time the bride and groom will ever experience it.  Our familiarity makes us good at what we do, but it also wears away our perception of the sacredness of the event. Before long, each wedding is simply another day at work, and we are eventually temped to herd our clients through the paces.

The ceremony venue

The ceremony venue

Selecting the right venue begins with determining the level of formality and religious

references you want. The ceremony venue you choose will hold life-long significance for both of you.

To avoid disappointment, book the venue as early as possible, usually at the sat time as the reception venue, celebrant and photographers. Aim for at least 12 months in advance.

Look in yellow pages under reception venues, search on google or wedding websites with service suppliers and friends and families for recommendation. We can alway suggest some great venues that we have worked with in the past, also.

Every venue has own formalities and restrictions.  Check what’s allowed and what’s not when investigating ceremony venues.
For example, A lot of places does not allow you to throw flower petals in Sydney. Some churches does not allow photographers to use flash or even take photos during the ceremony.

You also need to determine how far to get from ceremony venue is from the reception venue and whether it will be difficult for guests to get from one to other.

Many civil weddings hold the reception and ceremony at the same site for convinience and cost-cutting and getting married on Fridays seems to become more popular these days in Sydney.

A Civil vs Religious Ceremony 2

A Civil vs Religious Ceremony 2

When you decide either Civil ceremony or Religious ceremony,

Keep in mind that civil ceremonies offer the advantage of greater flexibility with the vow, music, style of wedding and location.

Civil ceremonies are conducted by a civil celebrant (marriage celebrant) and work particularly well for people marrying a second time, or those with no or different religious convictions.

Celebrants will marry you according to your wishes but differ in their approach and delivery, so interview at least two in person before deciding on whom you would like to use. Expect to pay AUD$500 or more for their service in Sydney these days.

Religious ceremonies are conducted by an officiant and follow a pre-scribe format of rituals, tradition and customs. For this reason, both you and your partner need to be comfortable with your faith and how you want it expressed in a religious context.
Officiants are paid a nominated fee to help cover costs.

Family religious backgrounds and personal convictions can provide either a great source of comfort or friction.

Hope this article was helpful.

A Civil vs Religious Ceremony 1

A Civil vs Religious Ceremony 1

Firstly, you will need to decide whether you want a religious or a civil ceremony. There are different ways of expressing aspects about love, family, commitment and spiritual or religious beliefs, and whether you choose a civil or religious service, they can all be part of your wedding day.

The most popular celebrants and churches are going to be heavily booked out on Saturday afternoon in Sydney’s spring or summer. As with all aspects of your wedding, the earliest you can book your service providers such as photographers or florists, the more choices you will have.

Book your officiant or celebrant at least 6 months in advance.
When searching for a civil celebrant or an officiant, search the Yellow Pages under Civil celebrant, visit www.civilceleberants.com.au inquire at your church,search the internet for wedding websites such as EasyWeddings, flip through bridal magazines, attend the bridal expos, and ask your friends, family or other wedding suppliers for recommendation.

Recently, we had an opportunity to work with a Civil Celebrant Christopher Stedman (Mobile:0403 774 626) who is based in Sydney.  We thought that He was outstanding and absolutely fantastic!

Part 2 is coming soon….
