A Traditional Wedding with a princess dress


This classic church ceremony followed by a sophisticated reception proves classic style will never go out of fashion. The bride wore a statement ballgown with the most beautiful ruffled skirt.

After being convinced by her boss to sign up for RSVP for a joke, Maria relented and decided to go on only one date. That date was with Stephen. Although Stephen turned up late for their first meeting all was forgiven when the pair found they had an undeniable connection.

Maria had always dreamed of a fairytale wedding with a beautiful big dress and lots of candles with a colour palette of pink summery colours. And she got her wish in an intricately beaded corset dress with a ball gown style layered skirt and bouquets of white and pink roses and peonies.

Tony Zannino, from Photo Domain, was the couple’s chosen photographer. Maria said, “Stephen is one of those people who does not like taking photos or being in the spotlight and Tony made sure he felt comfortable at all times. He added a personal touch to the day, it felt like he was not only a photographer but a friend.”

The reception was also lifted from the pages of a fairy tale with ivory satin tablecloths, candelabras and a display of flowers along the main table. The couple couldn’t contain their joy on the day with smiles so wide that they could not be wiped off their faces.

A Woodland Wedding in Centennial Park


This woodland wedding in Sydney’s Centennial Park looks like something out of a dream. The ceremony was held in a clearing amongst a forest of pine trees and the styling featured pops of red as well as native Australian flowers.

Natahnee and Blair’s dream wedding was simple: to create a day that truly represented them and their unique story. It was more about creating an atmosphere that made their guests feel special rather than following a particular trend or theme. “We came to the concept of a glamorous cocktail party,” said Natahnee.

The couple chose a beautiful afternoon in the cool shade of the Pine Grove Forest in Centennial Parklands. The location was meaningful to Natahnee and Blair as it was their ‘backyard’ and a place they often went to relax together. Natahnee said, ”I remember walking down the aisle, it was like a fairy tale. It was so beautiful.”

The vibrant shades of red in the native flowers (such as proteas), roses and poppies in the bouquets coupled with Natahnee’s deep red lipstick beautifully offset the dark browns and greens of the trees and pine needles. Inlighten Photography was on hand to capture the magic of the day. “We liked their energy. It was important for us that we connected well with our chosen photographer, we were letting them into our little world and we wanted to feel at ease and comfortable,” said Natahnee.

Inlighten Photography made us feel relaxed, they blended into the background, silently capturing all the magic moments,” said Natahnee.
