Rita & Peter’s Short n Sweet Ocean View Wedding

February 10, 2011

Rita & Peter (hello cute couple name alert!) got ready in their own apartment, but in separate rooms so Peter would see his beautiful bride (and her two dresses!) before the ceremony.  They were married up on the Northern cliffs of Maroubra over looking the Pacific Ocean, which just so happened to be literally across the street from their apartment.

“It was a perfect spring day, not a cloud it the sky!” photographer Rachael told me. “The ceremony was short but sweet, they did a rose ceremony which was something I hadn’t seen before, apparently its got something to do with the first gifts for each other and husband and wife. Then we had around 20-30 minutes for photos,  we stayed close by, using the garage doors of their building and the amazing cliffs and then we headed off to the reception where we were treated to some AMAZING Indonesian food (Rita is Indonesian and Peter is English), and they had a photo scavenger hunt and Polaroid photo-booth for the guests. Rita also changed into her second shorter wedding dress for the reception… and I was surprised when i was told Rita also made all the decorations herself!”

Gorgeous gorgeous. Be sure to check out their equally lovely engagement shoot too.

Thanks so much to the fabulous Rita & Peter and their photographer Rachael for sharing their day with us today
