The last time I saw Wai and Roger was back in May 2017, when I photographed their Cammeray engagement portrait session – read up on that session over here! I’m glad that I have had the opportunity to work with Wai and Roger on multiple occasions because these two make a lovely couple. This blog post is about Wai and Roger’s Ottimo House wedding in Five Dock.
Roger got dressed for their day at their newly renovated apartment, whilst Wai held preperations at her parent’s home; where she also served her immediate family members as part of an intimate tea ceremony – a significant component to their day.
Wai and Roger’s ceremony was at their parish in Artarmon, in a gorgeous wooden church, that was nicely lit through stain glass windows on one side. After their nuptials, we spent some time taking family photographs whilst everyone enjoyed afternoon tea within the church grounds. We departed Artarmon mid-afternoon.
We took some portraits in The Goat Paddock, Woolwich, just across the road from The Woolwich Pier Hotel. The Goat Paddock faces east towards the Sydney Harbour Bridge; which basically juxtaposes Bradley’s Head (one of my other favourite locations). The Goat Paddock is a lovely manicured native garden on a hill, with an old concrete pier down by the water. We started with a few photographs up on the Hill before heading down to the pier, and escaped just before it started to rain – timed it perfectly!
Wai and Roger celebrated with an Ottimo House wedding reception. It was the first time that I had photographed at Ottimo House in Five Dock, but I’d gladly recommend this venue to other couples. Ottimo House has two contemporary, luxurious (almost ornate) reception rooms. The couple’s reception was within the Royal Room; where the interiors, service and the refreshments were excellent.
