Bell + Shawn’s Royal Botanical Wedding at Ovolo Woolloomooloo Hotel

Sydney Wedding Photographers:  Fiona + Bobby Photography

Sitting down with Belinda + Shawn in a cafe, she told us that calling Shawn her fiance felt so weird, that she started to call him her Beyonce.  We knew we were going to get along just perfectly from that moment onwards.  Getting engaged can feel weird, it’s moving forward in a relationship with another person, but not really going anywhere. Hearing this about them gave us an insight into who these two people are: loving, tender and joyful.  They don’t take life seriously, they rather take off their shoes and enjoy the little things, without drawing too much attention to it all.
We wanted to capture their day in a way that even if they sat down together in 50 years from now, the real moments would jump out to them like the celebration happened yesterday.
They married at the Lions Gate, Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney and just as Belinda walked down the aisle and took the air out fo the atmosphere with her presence, the heavens opened up and poured down.  We couldn’t have been more grateful to their carefree flow to everything, having a giggle, and shifting to ceremony under the awning, all guests lifting a chair, sharing a giggle and dabbing the specs of rain from their shoulders.
Their reception was at the Ovolo in Woolloomooloo, styled to perfection with such gorgeous moody tones and a touch of magic.
We cannot recommend the vendors from their day enough to you all.  Each and every one of them brought their A-Game and created something totally unique for these two.
