I don’t think I have ever seen a couple more happy to be married. My couples every week are beaming with happiness on their wedding day but Tanya Owerko and Nathan Frkovic were like they were in another world all by themselves and floating on a cloud of extreme happiness!! During the signing process they could not stop giving each other kisses and their smiles were from ear to ear. I was just so happy for them. This continued into the night as they were looking at each other lovingly during the speeches and then whilst on the dance floor. As Tanya described it, they were in ‘marital fairyland.’ There were many other things to note about their gorgeous day – the incredible floral arrangements, Tanya’s stunner of a dress, the gorgeous grounds of Vaucluse House and the amazing reception venue overlooking Sydney Harbour at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Just 2 days after their wedding, Tanya sent me this absolutely gorgeous email. Keep in mind she had not seen any of her photos yet so this is all based on her experiences leading up to and on the wedding day.

 

“Thank you for absolutely everything and clearly I cannot wait to put pen and paper and write you a lovely thank you note but that will definitely come later.  We booked you as one of our ‘must have’ suppliers based on your beautiful photo taking talents, creativity and your ability to make Nathan and myself feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. What I did not realise is just how much Rob [my assistant] and yourself do. You kept us to a schedule and ensured that we got everything we wanted in when Nathan and I were basically off in marital fairyland! Your creativity and helpfulness of shooting still life and being MacGyver like with the furniture in our hotel room! Plus all the giggles and fun we had with you both with our bridal party photos! We were so comfortable it was almost like we had old friends taking our photos!   You humoured my father with his ‘can you take a photo?’ with his little camera (and oh dear! sorry about this but thank you for putting it so politely to him that you need to take photos with your camera also!!) You helped me when I had no idea what I was doing! ‘Gemma! Rob! I don’t know how to put this button hole on?! What side??!’   What I also didn’t anticipate was the extreme high level of communication in the lead up to the wedding, with all things wedding related and all the guidance, advice and reassurance and my mini meltdown with my make up artist.  I don’t even need to see the photos because I know they will turn out fabulous as we were so relaxed and comfortable with you both.  Thank you. Thank you for everything. And we look forward to working with you again for when we have our little ones in the future!”

An amazing sandstone church with lots of history, a dress with the class of Grace Kelly and a party overlooking the beach. It was a perfect wedding day. The weather held out, everyone looked amazing and the father of the bride’s speech created the most spectacular reaction I have ever seen as he recreated a scene from the Godfather. It was a day to remember!!!

Is it possible to whip together an epic wedding in just a few months whilst your fiance is working abroad? Anne showed us how last week with their amazing wedding on Sydney Harbour wharves in Walsh Bay. I must admit, I am a little bias as the colour red makes a lot of appearances which I cannot resist. The most wonderful part of the day was seeing all the excitement from Anne and Robert and also the respect for Chinese tradition throughout the tea ceremony. Please take your time to look through all the photos as the reception area is absolutely incredible with a dumpling and duck pancake bar to umbrellas, flowers and chairs hanging from the ceiling. A big shout out to Anne’s friend who did all the hard work with styling the venue, well done, Claire Parken!
