What an exhilarating day!
Just got back after a very long day, and just loved being with this couple. We took their pre-wedding photos some time back and that really helped with the day.
Nick was a bit nervous about his speech; but need not have been.
Friend and videographer Raman from Arian Film Productions was there again. He is always a pleasure to work with.
So many highlights of the day:
Rita's nephew's [2 year old] cries of "No! No!" as Rita was placing the wedding ring on Nick's hand, was perfect timing! Perhaps he didn't want her to marry! ;>). But what a stunning Church: St Peter Chanel at Hunters Hill.
The guys drove up in the meanest looking 1968 black Monaro I've seen. Of course, not to be outdone, Nikola's ride was a black Ferrari!
Rita, her gorgeous bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids [including my namesake - Kira] along with her cute 2 year old nephew, resplendent in his white tuxedo, and picture perfect flower girl; all came in cars supplied by Roll up in a Rolls. The kids got to ride in a convertible Morris 1000 no less!
With location shots taken around Argyle street and Observatory Hill, the day flew past. Moving on to the Dockside at Darling Harbour the highlight of the reception was the spectacular Brazilian and Latin American performance staged by Hotbeat productions. Seriously: if you want to spice up your wedding - book this crowd. Hi energy entertainment, stunning dancers, exotic costumes and mid-blowing acrobatic dance in the capoeira style.
Not to be outdone, young Kira [Rita's 7 year old niece] sang to her Aunt and new Uncle to rapturous applause!
The happy couple left by water taxi to stay overnight at the Park Hyatt before heading off in the morning [7am!] for an extended South East Asia honeymoon.
I wish them all the very best and thank them for such a wonderful day!
