Caitlin and Ronit said I do beneath the sprawling branches of an enormous oak on the lawns of Sydney Polo Club, and with Athena Grace behind the lens, these guys have some pretty magical memories of their beautiful day.
Ronit kept Caitlin guessing before his proposal, showering her with love letters and taking her to a number of romantic spots in Sydney. Just as she thought he was about to pop the question he suggested they head to his mums for dinner. Despite the anti-climax, on arrival Caitlin tells us she was not disappointed, “When we got to his mum’s he pulled me aside at the front door and said that we weren’t just here to eat but to tell our families something important. He then got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes and the door opened, lights went on and all of his family, my family, and my closest friends yelled out congratulations. It was pretty perfect.”
When it comes to finding your dream wedding dress, online shopping is not for the faint hearted – you never know what you might get, or if it’ll turn up on time. This brave bride however, threw caution to the wind and ordered a design she loved from AliExpress. “I thought, ‘Oh well it’s cheap enough to risk the money, I may as well buy it and see how it goes’.” Says Caitlin, “It arrived and it not only fit me like a glove but it was absolutely stunning. The bead-work was immaculate and the back-line was a dream!” We are suckers for a stunning back-line, so in our opinion the risk definitely paid off!
The grounds of the Sydney Polo Club couldn’t have made a more enchanting backdrop and guests didn’t have to go far for the reception with the Sunnybrook Barn on site. Caitlin and Ronit wanted to channel a rustic vibe and the picture-perfect barn fit the bill. Think wooden trestle tables laden with eucalyptus leaves, hay-bales and wildflower bouquets by Andy’s Posies Floral Design. Athena Grace comes highly recommended by this loved up couple, “Athena was an absolute blessing to Ronit and I.” they tell us, “We love her style and we love our wedding photos!”
