Jess + Ryan | Sydney Wedding





Where to start with this one!? Well.. first off, I knew as soon as the enquiry came through from Jess that she was engaged that I HAD to shoot hers and Ryan’s wedding! She has been at and recommended more than one LOBRIDE my way and every time I’ve seen her over the past few years I’ve said, “When it’s your turn I shot gun shooting your wedding!” so to say I was thrilled when she emailed me is an understatement!

We drove down on the Friday to Sydney and somehow managed to not die in the huge storm that hit the coast that day - the storm which continued to bucket down until late Saturday evening! I’m sure I wasn’t the only one that woke up on the Sunday morning holding my breath before pulling back the curtains to see.. PERFECT BLUE SKIES! All the hallelujah emoji’s! And the weather held out the entire day!

Jess and Ryan surrounded themselves with quite literally only their nearest and dearest - their families - for the incredibly intimate ceremony. Not only were both sides so amazingly welcoming but my heart, along with everyone else’s, skipped a beat, when, at the beginning of the very long walk down the aisle Terry stopped Jess, turned her to face him and asked one question, (which I was informed was now a tradition in their family!) “Are you sure?” before proceeding to a very excited Ryan. They said their vows, prayed together and signed on the dotted line. All that was to be done then was enjoy the flippin’ amazing weather with some photos in one of Camden’s most colourful parks and avoid getting swooped by Magpie’s!

Thank you so much Jess and Ryan for having me be a part of your wedding day! It was so fantastic to get to spend the day stalking you both and witness the next chapter of your lives together.. I also have to thank you for your incredible hospitality and tell you I’m still full from the German dinner banquet!!
