Grace and Brent decided to have their Sydney harbour elopement whilst visiting from Hawaii. Eloping from Hawaii many people asked, being that it is already such a beautiful location. However they chose little old Sydney as a place to create a lasting memory of their wedding day with close family present. With a small ceremony at the Royal Botanical Gardens (overlooking the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge). We wandered around the harbour foreshore and the rocks before dropping them back at Establishment where they continued to celebrate with family over dinner. We definitely got lucky with a classic Sydney spring afternoon showing off the best our city has to offer.
I feel so lucky being able to call Sydney home and it is especially nice being able to share this city with others. I may have provided a bit of a history tour to Grace and Brent as we explored the city during the afternoon.
Sydney Harbour Elopement
I must admit it is hard to beat a elopement right on Sydney Harbour. It is such an iconic harbour with so many beautiful little locations dotted all the way around the shoreline. You can get right up close in so many locations near the city, the Royal Botanic Gardens and all the way to Manly and beyond.
For this elopement they wanted to capture some of the icons on Sydney, as well as enjoy the locations in close proximity. In the post you have seen locations such as the Tarpeian Precinct Lawn for the Wedding Ceremony, Sydney Opera House, Succulent Garden and the Palm House inside the Royal Botanic Gardens as well as finishing the photos around The Rocks area.
