Kate and Dan’s wedding is full of historic buildings accented with DIY details, proving that you can never have too much bunting! We started the day at the rustic Blue Hotel where Dan and his groomsmen opted out of an early morning change to suits and instead had a casual morning of candid shots. They took a stroll along the piers and ended up at Harry’s Cafe De Wheels for a morning coffee. It was a laid-back start to a relaxed wedding.
The girls prep had the more typical buzz of pre-wedding activity. Hair and makeup was done by Jenny Clark and family and friends dropped in to offer their congratulations throughout the morning. Kate got ready in her parents’ beautiful apartment overlooking Cronulla beach. The wedding was held at the historic St Brigids in The Rocks – one of Sydney’s oldest Catholic churches.
The reception was a DIY delight, with Kate and Dan arranging every detail. Kate’s mum had sewn all the bunting and table runners and friends had helped string up the fairy lights the day before. Their reception was held at the National Art School in the Cell Block Theatre and guests danced the night away to the tunes of the Baker Boys Band. Towards the end of the night we found ourselves experimenting with cinemagraphs, or animated photos, which you can see amongst the reception pics.
