Emma and David had a small civil wedding at Cremorne Reserve just meters from where they first met at Cremorne Point Wharf. It was also the location of their engagement photo session, which we photographed a week before the wedding.
Emma looked stunning as she walked down the tree-lined path to the water’s edge. In her arm was her father, who whore a massive smile, showing everyone how proud he was of his daughter.
At the water’s edge, family and friends formed an aisle for Emma, and with the Sydney Harbour as a back drop, it was the perfect setting for a harbour side wedding. David waited by the water’s edge looking a little nervous, but once he saw Emma, that went away, and turned into the biggest smile I’d ever seen.
The reception was held at ARIA restaurant at Circular Quay. So how do you get the bridal party and guests from one side of the harbour to the other? You guessed it by ferry!
The ferry ride from Cremorne Point Wharf to Circular Quay was on a first fleet class ferry named “Scarborough” which was specifically requested for the occasion and timed nicely with the setting sun. The ferry ride held a special meaning for the couple as they used to ride the ferry together to uni early in their relationship.
As the ferry departed Cremorne Point Wharf, Emma and David were greeted over the loud-speaker by the crew, followed by cheering and congratulations from the passengers.
As we neared Circular Quay, a member of the crew escorted Emma and David to the roof of the ferry, which gave them a 360° view of the Sydney Harbour, not a bad way to see Sydney Harbour if you ask me.
From Circular Quay Wharf, it was a short stroll through the busy waterfront and onto the Opera House for some portraits of the bride and groom before moving on to the reception at ARIA restaurant for drinks & canapés and then a sit down dinner.
