Alice and Dave’s Sydney Royal Botanic Garden Wedding

We love effortlessly chic weddings and we can’t help but think that this couple speaks our language.

Alice and Dave tied the knot whilst surrounded by gorgeous flora in The Royal Botanic Garden at the Lion Gate Lodge. Drinks and their wedding reception followed shortly after at the charming Lion Gate Lodge.

Hilary of Hilary Cam Photography captured the wedding and recalls, “Alice and Dave’s wedding was so effortless to photograph. The entire day was a reflection of their personalities. The bridal party were playful and hilariously sarcastic yet grounded, supportive and caring.

Alice and Dave had thrown out the rulebook for their wedding, they didn’t want to spend their afternoon taking photos while their guests partied and drank all the beer, and so they reversed it. We had the location photos first, followed by a mid-afternoon garden ceremony, and late-lunch reception that went into the night.

We have never had a wedding where the groom rides a lion statue, a classy bride breaks character for half a minute to attack a sausage roll, and the wedding cake has a mystery biter as a matter of family tradition. This wedding was our kind of awesome.”

Our favourite things about this wedding are the gorgeous pastel bridesmaid dresses, the relaxed vibe, and that the bride wore a vintage dress borrowed from her grandma’s wardrobe.
