Issy and Lewis’ Luna Park Wedding

Published: Feb 25, 2022

Luna Park Sydney: a quintessential Sydney landmark, renowned worldwide for its trademark smiling face entrance, roller coaster rides and theme park experiences on Sydney’s harbour foreshore. What better way to celebrate your nuptials than a Luna Park wedding. This story is about Issy and Lewis’ wedding at Luna Park, and the fun times we had.

Wedding Ceremony at St Mary’s North Sydney

One of my top 5 CBD (or near-CBD) wedding venues, St Mary’s Catholic Church in North Sydney has a grand presence on the North Shore and was chosen by Issy and Lewis for their wedding day. The church is beautiful, with a small courtyard garden to the side, and a grand staircase leading down to Miller Street. The inside of the church is spacious and suitable for larger wedding guest lists.

Wedding Photos around North Sydney

After the ceremony, we captured some portraits in the church courtyard and on the staircase before heading down to our first or two portrait locations – Kirribilli’s Jeffrey Street Wharf.

Jeffrey Street Wharf is a popular location in Sydney for wedding portraits. It’s a popular location because of the proximity to the Sydney CBD and the backgrounds offered near the harbour foreshore. Elements including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and the Sydney CBD Skyline make the location well-liked for lots of couples Sydney-wide. As I recall, my first ever wedding was photographing an elopement at Jefferey Street Wharf (congrats again Jenny and Justin!). We captured some images in the sandstone stairwell and under the giant fig tree before making our way over to Luna Park.

Before heading into reception, we captured some frames on the rides in the park as part of their Luna Park wedding photos, stopping off at the Ferris wheel, taking in the colour and vibrance of the surroundings.

Wedding Reception at Luna Park

A Luna Park wedding reception – what a way to end the day! The grand ballroom at Luna Park shows off the best of the Sydney CBD location with high ceilings, professional lighting design, floor to ceiling arch windows, and classic uninterrupted views of the city skyline.

Issy and Lewis celebrated with their family and friends, hearing from close friends and family (including some COVID-recorded speeches from those unable to make it). We captured some last portraits during a short night shoot before Issy and Lewis got away in a harbour jet.
