FION + DAVID
2 OCTOBER 2019
COPE’S LOOKOUT, KIRRIBILLI
MIRAMARE GARDENS, TERRY HILLS
Photographer: Gerrie Mifsud Photography -
I had the pleasure of working along side Gerrie Mifsud photography for Fion and David’s wedding. Gerrie started shooting day nice and early in the morning at Fion’s place alongside as their immediate families and wedding party. What took place was a beautiful traditional Chinese tea ceremony along with David having to perform various tasks, one of them being a plank for a few minutes and the other drinking an unpleasant concoction, which by the look on David’s face in some of the images, didn’t taste very nice, however he ploughed through it and did a great job. Next stop was at David’s family house, where another lovely tea ceremony took place. The Tea Ceremony combines the celebration of marriage with honoring the family’s ancestors and relatives. This makes it one of the most compelling and emotional parts of a Vietnamese wedding.
They got married at Cope’s Lookout in Kirribilli and I officiated the wedding and MC 'd the reception at the lovely Miramare Gardens, Terry Hills.
It was celebration of two beautifully colourful cultures coming together to celebrate the love between Fion & David.
