Chinese Garden of Friendship | Curzon Hall | Tea Ceremony

April 5, 2009

My second wedding for the weekend, it was great daylight saving ended today giving me an extra hour sleep. It was a great multicultural wedding today with a Chinese tea ceremony in the morning and then a civil garden ceremony at the Chinese Gardens in The Water Pavilion @ Darling Harbour. The reception was at the unique sandstone castle Curzon Hall @ Marsfield. The Civil Marriage Celebrant today was Helen Bailey. Makeup was by Tasleema Nigh and the 3 Rolls Royce was from Royalty Weddings.

    Hi Vincent
    I love your photos and your ability to capture the moment. What lens/settings do you use for that last group shot on the dance floor? I notice you use that type of shot a lot for group photos and it is quite effective.

    hi anna, thank you. I use an ultra wide angle lens. Captured with slow shutter speed and let the flash freeze the action. Both camera and flash is set on manual mode. vl
