We knew Ben and Bianca liked to take the road less travelled. For their prewedding they drove, and then hiked, to an abandoned pocket of the Blue Mountains in 1920s garb.
We learnt that Ben had organised a surprise engagement party for Bianca so that only moments after proposing to her they strolled into a bar in Balmain, which erupted in congratulations. Luckily Bianca had said yes!
Bianca’s engagement ring, designed by Ben, joins with to her wedding ring – a tricky little diamond piece that snaps together like a puzzle. Ben’s wedding band likewise has a personal touch from Bianca – the exterior is moulded with her fingerprint.
The boys got ready high above the city in World Tower, and the ceremony was at St Francis Xavier in Lavender Bay. We had location photos down at Watt Park in Lavender Bay – but whereas a regular couple would simply have had their wedding cars drive them the next leg to the reception – Ben and Bianca’s bridal party set out on a boat! We cruised along Sydney harbour, giving the bridal party a chance to sit back and relax, take in the views… plus a little champagne.
Their reception was at The Harbourview Ballroom in Taronga Park Zoo which has sweeping views of the city and distant sounds of animals. The guests danced the night away.
