My favourite part of Matt & Hayley's day was the dancing & seeing how much fun everyone was having together. Everyone was just having such a great time in the reception with the help of the awesome Mc & Singers White Clover Wedding Music it would have been hard not to enjoy yourself!Read More
Sydney Wedding photo
We here at J’adore love our Sydney weddings, being one of our favourite city’s the team & I were very excited to have the opportunity to be heading back to such a gorgeous location.
Ramsey & I started with the groomsman, despite Glenn trying to send us straight off to the ladies we got some great images which I am certain looking back he will be glad we stayed. Kim did give us fair warning he may have tried to pull a fast one on us so we were will prepared to take on the challenge. Once we had explained to him that it wouldn’t take long & after taking a few shots he was well on board. Shooting the guys getting ready was quite enjoyable for myself & the team, hearing them cracking jokes & reminiscing about a crazy buck’s party & plotting their revenge against the groomsman who had put it all together. We love to see this kind of happiness amongst our clients, a huge part of why we do what we do here at J’adore. & Before Glen knew it we were done & left them to continue getting ready & bonding over memories they had all shared together.
Not long after we arrived at the Merriton in Parramatta to a stunning modern suit, with the ladies pouring Champaign accompanying the bride in the hair & makeup chair looking as gorgeous as ever. Kim looked stunning wearing her white camisole with a beautiful white throw over dressing gown with gorgeous lace details. As soon as we saw this we knew we had the perfect setting to get some great shots of Kim & the girls putting her garter on.
The room we had to shoot in was nice & tidy, with beautifully fragranced flowers along with all of her accessories needed already placed on the bed ready for our arrival. Her gorgeous dress hanging up on the lamp in the corner of the room with some beautiful light coming through the windows behind we instantly felt very confident that we would be creating some stunning images. Having this all arranged prior to our arrival made it much easier for us to get in & get the job done allowing us a little more time to get those perfect images. Instantly we got to work displaying everything so we could really capture how perfect this day was about to be.
As Kim’s kombi van had arrived to collect the beautiful bride & her bridesmaid’s we all made our way over to the magnificent all in one venue Lauriston House in Dundas Valley.
The ceremony took place outside under a gorgeous gazebo located at Lauriston house with all of their nearest & dearest in attendance soaking up the beautiful weather whilst watching this perfect moment unfold of Kim & Glen becoming Husband & wife.
After the ceremony we took some group & family photos before whisking the happy newly weds off in their gorgeous classic cars for some photos nearby Parramatta lake. This being a location Kim had previously selected & I might I just add it was stunning, the team & I were very impressed. It really was the perfect location. Whilst the couple was enjoying their first moments being Mr & Mrs you could really see the newly wed sparkle in their eyes as we began to snap away, capturing those precious interactions of them both effortlessly laughing & smiling at one another.
As they entreated the reception back at Lauriston house to the raw applause of family & friends the band began to play. Food & drinks coming out not long after the night begun without a hitch moving onto some dancing and celebratory drinking a great night was had by all.

There's a certain love you find yourself embracing when you meet that right person in your life, as the love though continues to grow with a box full of memories, unexpected yet beautiful surprises occur in the name of Piper.
We love coming across families in our industry, as you see the love practically glow on video & Photo throughout the whole day. It was our greatest pleasure to be apart of Scott & Dominique's special day in Sydney!
We started off at the grooms location at Pier One Sydney Harbour. This was one of the best locations throughout Sydney as you're just steps away from world-famous landmarks, including the Sydney opera House and the historic Rocks District. Scott adjourned a black and white suit. Right away it was really easy to converse with Scott and the four of his chosen groomsmen. Scott then decided to mix things up just that little bit extra by hitching a ride across to the ceremony location via boat.
Turning up at at the same location for Dominique's pre getting ready time, she was just getting her finishing touches. This elegantly styled apartment was perfectly ideal for the getting ready location as it provided amazing light that gave us a lot of leverage to get some more creative shots/video for the couple. As Dominique got her cream styled wedding gown on, it fitted her perfectly, and nothing better could have been added than to accentuate her bridal look with a glorious headpiece pinned with her long train and white bouquet of flowers. One of our favourite moments though was when Dominique's father saw her for the first time though, these treasured memories are fast becoming a huge reason why we love our job, for moments like with Dom and her dad.
Before Dominique went off to to Sergeants Mess Sydney, with breathtaking harbour views, and elegant intricacies of design this venue gives you absolute privacy whilst also opening up the Sydney coastal views for this outside venue. The ceremony was a beautiful location, that had a certain special twist at the end with a balloon tying ceremony.
We then whisked the couple and bridal party off down the road to get some different jetty shots that incorporated the Sydney Harbour Bridge at night. It wasn't long though before the reception was fast approaching at the same location as the ceremony.
This Sparkling waterfront location was completely lit up and done to perfection when we opened the doors to the ceremony, and the upbeat and fun nature of the guests and everyone around us didn't stop all night. From the heartfelt speech that Dominique's father produced to the comedic moments shared between Scott and Dom, there wasn't a moment we didn't want to capture with this wedding.
