Rainy Sydney Wedding (with the most gorgeous Rue De Seine gown!)


If you wake up the morning of your wedding to cloudy skies and impending downpour, remember seeing these photos of Ashleigh + Michael’s rainy Sydney wedding and how magical it is to have your wedding photos under an open sky. Captured by Bek Smith Photography, this wedding held the elegance of a harborside wedding, with a hint of casual, bohemian luxe. What caught us was the gorgeous strapless, fitted Rue De Seine Gown that Ashleigh wore (no wonder Michael lost it when she walked down the aisle).

Their reception was held in a huge marquee at Fort Denison with hanging flower installations and had crisp whites and greens everywhere (did someone say colour palette goals?). The gardens and the harbor itself has a big influence on their styling decisions. Their ceremony in the gardens didn’t need much because of the natural beauty (just a sprinkling of rose petals to line the aisle!), and the reception on the island was surrounded by stunning views, so their focus was minimal elegance. Lots of candles filled the space with a sweet warmth and deep coloured flowers added to the magic of the day.
