Lisa and Paul’s Bilgola Beach Wedding in Sydney

Cocktail Reception on the Northern Beaches

Lisa and Paul made a great choice in having a Bilgola Beach wedding. The Bilgola Beach Life Saving Club is like a little treasure on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and unknown by many. The club has a gorgeous grassed and paved courtyard entertaining area overlooking the beach. Despite this, the area feels very private.

Details and decoration were important to Lisa on the day as she has a real flare for design. We made sure we allowed enough time to capture all these lovely details at the wedding.  On the day I was trying to find the best spot to really showcase the rings (the last photo in the post) and I had looked everywhere with no luck. Then I saw some rich textures in the stone that was used as extra seating in the garden. Would you have guessed it was taken there? As a photographer you are investing in my skills to see the beauty and opportunity in things your eye may not see. I am so excited when my clients really appreciate how I can bring out the beauty of their venue in the simplest of ways.

Lisa told me there would be a suprise associated with the custom-made cake topper. I was very curious as to what this could be. They brought the delicious brownie cake out just before I was finishing. On the top was a gorgeous silhouette of a bride and groom and their two cats. Lisa knows I have two cats (and met one of them too) and also knows I love all animals. A lot of my clients tend to be animal lovers and I love exchanging stories and photos with them! So if you are an animal lover do not hesitate to get in contact as I am happy to hear all your pet/animal related stories and see endless photos!

Bilgola Beach Wedding – All the Details

I covered 3.5 hours for this beach wedding which included the details of the setup of the ceremony and cocktail reception areas. Then some portraits of the bride and groom were captured separately before the ceremony. It was then about the guests mingling, the ceremony and congrats after. Lisa and Paul had a long list of group photos with friends and family as that was important to them. And then we spent about 45 minutes for some lovely portraits on the beach and the greenery. Everyone’s requirements and needs are different so you are welcome to chat to me about what you have in mind and I can draft up a timeline for you.
