Elopement on Sydney Harbour: Chris and Cassandra's wedding day photos

I recently photographed the elopement of Chris and Cassi out on Sydney’s beautiful harbour. They were joined by two of their best friends for a private ceremony with a celebrant, and I was delighted to be documenting such an intimate occasion.

We started the day at their house for some photos. The bride and groom didn’t want any fuss or pressure for the day, so we kept the photos to a minimum. I took many candid shots on the day, as well as the more posed shots that they requested...involving their sweet dog Leo.

The weather was picture-perfect for the ceremony and the bride ditched the traditional white gown for an awesome fuchsia dress.

Later in the day, a small group of family and friends were invited to celebrate the occasion.

The wedding was exactly what the couple wanted and thankfully, they love their wedding photos too!
