“The two of you are going to love each other more than some people ever love in a lifetime.”
I knew Caitlin as ‘curiously rose’ after her instagram name. But she was much sweeter and much more beautiful than any rose I’ve ever seen.
When Caitlin asked me to shoot their wedding day and I was honoured, and when I found out they were getting married at the Sydney Polo Club,
my excitement tripled. Everything about it is breathtaking. It feels like you’re in a different country, and having their ceremony under the
stunning old oak tree alongside an enormous lake. Their Stylist Alex Rose Designs did an incredible job, with no detail unattended for.
I particularly loved the floating garland above the bridal table, but the simple yet stunning fairylights mixed with her mum’s DIY gold bunting
Caitlin’s stunning dress was a Paolo Sebastian ‘Swan Lake’ copy, designed and sent to Caitlin – it fit like a glove! The bead work was immaculate
and the backline was a dream. Caitlin chose native flowers with huge vibrant proteas, put together by Andy’s Posies Floral Design.
The speeches were some of the funniest I’ve ever heard – the best man was so good I took out my phone to write down some of his lines.
Seriously gold. When Ronit got up he soon had the whole room in tears as he spoke words that hadn’t been said out aloud in years to his parents.
I love that weddings are a space to be vulnerable, to be known. When I asked Caitlin what marriage meant to her, she said ‘unconditional love,
partnership, commitment, friendship, vulnerability, safety and unity.’
Thanks to her kind words about me:
Athena and her photography business was an absolute blessing to Ronit and I. We love her style and we love our wedding photos!
We would definitely recommend her to others, and we have already done so for a couple of people who have asked about our
wedding photos and commented on their unique touch that is simply Athena Grace.
