“I was late to the wedding because…” is a series we are currently working our little hearts out on. It is a series of 12 shoots, all with an outrageous reason why a bride (or groom) might be late to their own wedding. It’s about having fun and doing something different. We have used a mixture of real brides and in some cases a friend who was willing to have a bit of fun and dress up. We are also promoting local wedding vendors – so with each shoot I will include all of the people who have helped and donated their time and wares. They feature our Couture Bridal Portraits (there is more info on these below.)
Andrew and Talitha were married last year but after talking with us, they were keen to do something a little different.
After many emails with Talitha, I knew she and Andrew would be perfect for a fun fair shoot we had been dying to make happen. We wanted a certain look – 50’s inspired hair and makeup which was perfectly created by Sofia Rodi and I knew we had to have a lollipop bouquet and thankfully Kat from Petals and Leaves made it a reality – she even created two lollipop buttonholes for Andrew.
The Hawkesbury Show happens 1 weekend a year in Richmond. This smaller sister show of the Royal Sydney Easter Show was the perfect opportunity to shoot our 50’s Fun Fair bridal shoot. We knew we wanted to have fun on all the rides and games – we weren’t sure what games there would be but we had an idea of what we were hoping for. We made sure we headed for the carousel – we thought these would be our favourite images but it wasn’t until Tali and Andrew said they were happy to go on the swinging chairs that the magic started to happen – of course I have to mention Ben here – he was the one who suffered a little (he would say a lot) by being up in the chairs with Tali and Andrew – only he was riding backwards and looking through a camera lens. Needless to say, he was feeling a little queesy after the ride. I got to keep my feet firmly on the ground and capture the ride from a different perspective.
Couture Bridal Portraits are a new service that Angelica Peady Photography is now offering. We create editorial images that are created in consultation with you for you.
It’s a perfect way to cure the post wedding blues and dress up in your wedding attire again – simply because you can. We love the chance to be creative and come up with outrageous ideas that reflect who you are. We supply the hair and makeup artists, the flowers, accessories and all the concept designs.

I am so keen to share Mark and Danielle’s Sydney wedding on the blog.
The day started off as a rainy morning in Sydney but when we arrived at Danielle’s house you would have thought the sun was shining bright – the rain wasn’t bothering anyone.
I would like to dub Danielle ‘the smiling bride’ as she did not stop smiling the whole day. Actually, all of the families of Mark and Danielle were so happy and so lovely to us the whole day. This wedding was truly a day about family. I loved listening to the minister tell the story of how Mark’s grandfather and father built and fitted the cross to the roof and more impressively the same cross still sits atop St Stephen’s Church in Bellevue Hill.
After the ceremony we headed to Hyde Park, we didn’t know how we would go in the rain – secretly I was looking forward to it as I knew that as long as it wasn’t pouring we would end up with some great shots – the paths look great when they glisten from the rain.
This was also the first wedding where I didn’t have Ben shooting with me. I did however have my lovely photographer friend Annie la Rue shooting with me on the day. I would like to say a special thanks to Annie for all her help on the day. I am looking forward to the next time we get to photograph together.
Congrats to both of you Mark and Danielle.

Finally I get to share Matt and Mel’s fabulous wedding with you.
Such a gorgeous local autumn wedding – there is certainly something special about the afternoon lighting in autumn – it was truly beautiful. The ceremony and the reception were held at The Log Cabin Inn, Penrith with a little detour via the Weir. Matt and Mel picked a great location for the ceremony, overlooking the Nepean River and the timing of the ceremony was perfect as the setting sun added a lovely golden hue over everything.
Matt and Mel live on The Gold Coast but Mel grew up in Penrith – I actually went to the same school as Mel and was in the same year as her sister Kerrie (who was one of the bridesmaids.) Lesley (Mel’s mum) had arranged a surprise limo to take the girls to the venue – the first image is Mel’s look of surprise and can’t you just hear Lesley saying ‘da-dah’?
I love that Matt and Mel are so easy going and adventurous – they were willing to go cross country to get to the location that we had envisioned ever since we started talking about their wedding plans last year.
Congratulations again to you both and I look forward to catching up with you next time we’re on The Gold Coast.

This is a another shoot that has been photographed in 2 parts. The first part I can share with you now but part II will be featured later in the year as part of a series and is still very hush hush. If you want to know more, make sure you are signed up to receive the latest updates from our website.
We started the day at a fabulous location that Chris and Tawny chose – since we had planned to spend the day in the mountains they decided to make a weekend of it and stayed at Parklands in Blackheath. Not only does Parklands have gorgeous rooms but they have 30 acres of woodlands – so how could we not take a walk to start the shoot? Very romantic and autumny!
(everything about the 2nd location must stay secret for now)
Then we headed to our 3rd location in Lithgow. I have to say we were trully blessed by the weather on this day. The big blue skies were just amazing and made for even more dramatic photographs.
I would like to say a big thank you to Chris and Tawny for being so adventurous and understanding that climbing on top of a huge chunk of metal can really work!! They took my direction really well and just trusted me and what I was trying to achieve.
Also, a big thanks to everyone else who helped out on the day:
Makeup: Tahlia Wood Ph: 0433 795 822
Flowers: Petals and Leaves www.petalsandleaves.com.au Ph: 0417 667 433
If you would like to know more about one of these bridal sessions – just let me know.
I was just too excited to share with you the first part of Chris and Tawny’s bridal session.
It is just delicious autumny goodness in the mountains.
Of course I will tell you more about the shoot and don’t worry… there are plenty more images that I have to share but for now, I hope you enjoy this preview

I seriously cannot wait to show you the series that we are working on – all up there are 12 shoots that we have planned and we are nearly half way through. There is still lots of work to do but shortly we will start to reveal what has been keeping us so busy.
Today I would like to share with you these images of Louisa – I absolutely LOVE these!! My absolute favourites are the 1st and the last images A special thanks to Louisa for looking so gorgeous, to Tahlia for Makeup (contact Tahlia on firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jaylee for her work on the hair.
If you have visited our blog before you are probably aware that Ben and I are working on a series of bridal shoots. We are working on creating something very special and it’s taking a bit of time to put everything together.
What you might not know is that I am kind of impatient… so it’s killing me not be able to share the amazing images we are capturing. I just want to share everything with you right now but the best I can do is this little bit of a sneak peek. Part II is coming soon.
How gorgeous are these two?? I am so so so excited about the 2nd half of the session and I really think it is our best yet
Amazing hair and makeup done by Sofia Rodi – if you would like to get in contact with her, just email me and I can pass on her details.
Remember if you want to be the first to see our latest photographs make sure you are a fan of our facebook page: www.facebook.com/Angelica.Peady.Photography
stay tuned for more…
We love the Hunter Valley!!!
This was our first Hunter Valley wedding and this place absolutely rocked the day we were there. I am in love with Hunter Valley Gardens. They are so gorgeous and I could spend a whole day photographing a wedding here.
I guess I should tell you a little about the couple who invited us along to photograph their wedding… Terry and Melissa. They love the Hunter Valley and have visited it many times (all in the name of research of course ) and I can understand why.
Melissa did amazingly well on all of her planning. The dress was gorgeous, the chapel, the gardens, the flowers, the flower girl dresses and the little added extra’s in the ceremony. It was all so beautiful.
We had some fabulous drivers on the day who asked us to trust them and they would take us to some fabulous locations… and they did. So a big shout out to the guys from Silver Classic Limousines Thanks again!!
Terry and Melissa, we wish you all the best and congratulations again
WOW! What a fantastic day we had at the bridal expo at the Joan Sutherland Centre.
It was so great to meet all the local brides and grooms to be.
Thank you to those who stopped to chat to Ben and I and especially those who entered our competition. On that note, I would like to announce the winner of our portrait competition… drum roll please….
The winners are Kate and Travis. Congratulations to you both and we’ll be in contact soon to arrange your portrait session.
Here’s a quick iphone shot of our stand
