Sydney Wedding Photos Sergeants Mess
First wedding of the Sydney spring season was a mate’s and a fellow wedding film maker’s so there was a bit of anxiousness about getting it right! I’ve worked with Vish and one of his groomsmen Sumeet at a couple of weddings before and we’d got along real well from the start so whilst nervous, I was very excited about the opportunity to cover Ivana and Vish’s wedding celebrations.
Vish rang me earlier this year asking me if I was available to cover his wedding celebrations to his long standing girlfriend Ivana and I right away said yes! Their wedding ceremony was to be an Orthodox Serbian church wedding followed by the reception at one of my favourite venues – Sergeants Mess.
We were battered by thunderstorms earlier in the afternoon but am fairly glad that I stuck to my mantra of waiting out the weather like a nightwatchman only to get this magnificent double rainbow (above) and a few other epic photos of their bridal party
We had about an hour of unrelenting rain and only 15 mins of dry time, but the key is to be patient and optimise those 15 mins 🙂
Their reception at Sergeants Mess had some beautiful emotional speeches from Vish and Jelena, the maid of honour and some equally funny speeches by Ivana’s dad and Vish’s grandpa who very proudly detailed all of Vish’s achievements to date! Once the formalities were over, the Serbians and Macedonians in the crowd started tapping their foot to some traditional music followed by the Lankans on the floor matching them to some Baila tunes.
