Cocooned in their own private joy, Annie and Greg shared a lingering kiss in the back of their antique wedding car, shielded from the gentle rain that dripped from the sky around them. Their day had begun in a relaxed manner, as shown in the wedding video recorded by Biting Designs. Whilst Annie prepared for her big day with laughter and champagne, Greg enjoyed a relaxed morning out on the porch, surrounded by his closest friends. Both appeared unruffled, happy and full of anticipation of what was to come.
Their wedding video shows the bride dressed in a full length white gown, adorned with fine detailed lace across the torso and short capped sleeves. Her short lace veil, reminiscent of the roaring twenties, covered just a portion of her face, leaving her dazzling smile on full display. Whilst Annie carried a full bouquet of brightly coloured assorted flowers, Greg had pinned to his lapel a small arrangement that was still full of variety and bright technicolour hues.
The couple exchanged vows on a yacht overlooking the water, surrounded by their closest family and friends. Braving the cool weather, the wedding party posed for photos in amongst the luxury yachts of Sydney Harbour, with the bride and groom occasionally sneaking behind a full white umbrella to enjoy a stolen kiss.
When your reception venue is a streamlined yacht, it is only natural that a nautical theme might prevail. From the aquamarine of the bridesmaids’ dresses, to the blue piping that ensconced the multi-tiered wedding cake, this harmony with the sea was perceived by all in attendance. The reception venue was protected from the elements by clear weather shields, keeping out the rain and wind whilst still allowing the light of the harbour to filter through as the sun went down.
The close friendships of the couple were evident in the antics of the bridal party, with many laughs and hugs exchanged throughout the course of the day. Both the best man and the chief bridesmaid gave speeches that were a testament to the fine qualities of bride and groom, reflecting on how these qualities that made them excellent friends would also translate into making them an exceptional husband and wife. Guests waxed lyrical on the couple’s calm and respectful manner towards each other, a hallmark of their strong and loving relationship. Annie’s best friend summed up the occasion by saying: “I think you will all agree how beautiful the ceremony was…and how amazing today has been”.
