Rebecca and Chris - Sunday 4th October, 2009

becss16 Sunday morning brought an early start, heading out the door at 8.20am to be at the groom's family home by nine. After two weddings in the two days prior, we were just a little bit tired and felt as though we started the day running on empty. However as soon as we arrived to take photos of Chris and his groomsmen, Chris's dad, Neil made us feel immediately welcomed and pretty soon it was full steam ahead.

The boys were definitely a group of lads and happy to ham it up for the camera. It would be possible to make a slideshow purely of the Chris, Scott, Sam and Anthony, however there was also a stunning bride to take photos of.

We headed into the Stamford Plaza and were met by a very excited Bec. Bec had reason to be excited; she had received a free upgrade from a junior suite at the Stamford to THE Stamford Suite. The Stamford Suite has housed celebrities and royalty including the Queen, Madonna, John Travolta, Rod Stewart and many more - infact, there is a plaque in the room as you walk in telling you who else has stayed there. We received the grand tour and have to admit, if you have $4000 to spare, a night at the Stamford Suite wouldn't be a shabby place to stay. With the formal tour out of the way, we got down to the nitty gritty of shooting the final preparations then some last minute photos of Bec. There is one photo of Bec that we just adore, with Bec's history of dance it was hard not to incorporate her strength and grace into one amazing image.

After a ceremony at St Mary's Anglican Church, we headed under the Storey Bridge to start shooting the location images. It was here that we realised just how crazy for each other Bec and Chris are as they frequently went into their own little world while we were shooting. It was just so nice to be witness to those moments of tenderness. This continued for the remainder of the shoot in the Botanical Gardens before making our way to the reception venue; Oxley's on the River.

When we made it to Oxley's there was a full moon rising over the city so we quickly bundled Bec and Chris off to take adavantage of the photo opportunity before their formal entry to the reception as husband and wife.

Congratulations to Bec and Chris on your day and thank you for allowing us to be a part of it and letting us see a glimpse of the obvious tenderness you have for each other. We hope you enjoy your sneak peek.
