Sydney’s Most Amazing Wedding Photographers (2021)

Wedding NSW’s 9 Step Guide to Finding the Perfect Sydney Wedding Photographer

  1. How many photos are you looking for? A couple dozen amazing shots to build an album, have printed and displayed? or hundreds or thousands? Some photographers take less photos, but they might be more to your liking. Other photographers may take many images and many may be quite similar.
  2. Create an action plan. Will you require photos of you getting ready? travel to and arrival at ceremony venue? Ceremony (obviously)! Then groups – how many? Photo-shoot of newlyweds on location? Reception coverage? How many hours do you think this might be?
  3. Browse wedding photographer’s portfolios. Look at their different styles.
  4. Once you have selected a shortlist of photographers send them an enquiry!
  5. Meet with your shortlisted photographers and ask them to show you completed albums, or a large range of photos from a single wedding. This will help you double check that they’re going to be able to deliver they style and quantity of photos that you’re after.
  6. Make sure your personalities match! Will you be comfortable with them on your wedding day?
  7. Compare packages and inclusions.
  8. Get post production details. Will you expect every image to be art-worked? or just a few hero images?
  9. Once you’ve settled on a photographer, check their contract and look for additional costs like overtime, printing, supply of digital images, and cost for special effects.

Sydney has some super talented wedding photographers. No matter what type of style or wedding coverage you’re after, you’re sure to find something to suit your requirements. Sit back, relax, and browse these popular Sydney wedding photographers.

How to Pick the Perfect Sydney Wedding Celebrant (2021)

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Celebrant for your Sydney Wedding

Your perfect wedding celebrant will be someone who makes you feel natural and relaxed. You should be able to pick up on their friendliness and organisational skills at your first meeting. They should show genuine interest in crafting an unique wedding ceremony that will incorporate aspects of your romantic journey along with the necessary legal requirements. Get in touch with a few celebrants, have a chat with them about your wedding ideas, and see whom you feel most comfortable with.

You might also like to check and see if your short-listed celebrants will be conducting any other weddings in Sydney on your chosen date, and see how they plan to accommodate the timing of the ceremonies. You don’t want them stuck in traffic when they should be at your wedding!

Some celebrants can provide a PA system or microphone to ensure your guests can hear you well. This can be particularly important if you plan on having a video taken on your day. Be sure to give your videographer your celebrant’s details so they can plan the best way to capture your wedding.

Similarly, some celebrants can provide a signing table along with special signing pens and more. Be sure to ask what extra touches they provide as part of their wedding service.

Best wishes for finding your perfect Sydney wedding celebrant. Here’s a list of some of Sydney’s most popular wedding celebrants.

Happy wedding planning. xx

How to Plan the Perfect Sydney Wedding

How to Plan a Wedding in 13 Easy Steps

You can start planning your wedding in 13 easy steps. Wedding NSW has everything you need to plan a fabulous wedding in Sydney and New South Wales. Browse affordable Sydney wedding suppliers, real weddings, wedding inspiration and unique ideas, wedding package info, special offers and more. Follow our social channels for all the latest tips, specials, offers, and open day info. We look forward to helping you make your Sydney wedding fabulous! xx

  1. Enjoy being engaged!

    Be in the moment and enjoy this special time together. Start storyboarding your ideal wedding day. Discuss it together. What do you picture? Casual or Black Tie? Rustic or Fairy tale? Local or Destination? Wedding NSW has real weddings you can browse for inspo.

  2. Tell your family and friends

    Announce your engagement and discuss your wedding plans with your family and friends. Find out if any VIPs (parents, potential bridal party members) have commitments that would rule out certain dates for people you really want attending your wedding.

  3. Decide on the style of wedding

    Your wedding style will narrow your venue choice. Venues often book many months, or years in advance. Once you have your wedding style, then it becomes easier to pick your venue. The most popular styles are:
    Fairytale = city ballroom
    Rustic = country or winery
    Beach = coastal or water views
    DIY = community hall, sporting venue, private home
    Destination = somewhere with great views and accommodation.
    Check out the Wedding NSW venues or catering companies and make some enquiries as to availability and pricing.

  4. Set your budget

    Once you’re received info on potential venues, you can think about your budget. Talk to your parents and see if they plan on contributing towards your wedding. Think about how much you can save and afford to spend on your wedding. You might like to open a separate account for wedding savings and spending. Once you have a rough budget you can consider how many people you can afford to have at each venue. Of course, it’s also an option to ask people to donate cash in lieu of a gift to help off-set the cost. Wedding NSW has a budget planner you can download to help you out.

  5. Start booking!

    Typically it is the reception venue selection that set’s the date. Then couples consider their ceremony venue – which may be at the same venue. Wedding NSW has some great ceremony venues to consider – gardens, beaches and churches.

  6. Photographers, video and cars!

    Wedding photographers and cars can also be booked out many months, or years in advance. Don’t forget a video! Many couples skip the video, but it’s an gorgeous way to relive the forgotten or never seen moments. Have a browse through Wedding NSW to find your preferred suppliers.

  7. Celebrant

    Your choice of celebrant can make or break your ceremony. Meet with a few and make sure they make you feel relaxed and confident. This will help with any nerves on the day.

  8. Flowers, Decoration, Decor, Hire, Cake

    What are you going to need to make your venue fabulous? Do you need to hire chairs and crockery for a DIY wedding? Will you have floral arbors and centerpieces? Some venue packages will include decorations – check what is included – it may be centerpieces, chair covers, etc. They may also include a wedding cake.
    Consider a floral theme – it could be colour or style based. Remember that you’ll be holding your bouquet throughout the ceremony and photos – they can get heavy!
    Will your wedding cake be used as dessert? This will determine what size your bakery will recommend. You can also get different tiers with different flavours! Heavenly! xx

  9. Music and Entertainment

    Musicians at your ceremony can set a lovely mood for your wedding. Other entertainment options are endless – DJ, swing band, jazz singers, band. Photobooths can be fun too!

  10. You!

    What are you going to look like and wear at your wedding? Browse through the Wedding NSW fashion, hair and makeup, and rings and jewellery sections for inspo and amazing Sydney suppliers.

  11. Guest list and bridal party

    Work out your guest list. Select your bridal party. It can be less stressful to select your bridal party closer to your wedding date, eg 3 months before. It’s easier to not select someone, than have to un-select them. Wedding NSW has a guest list and seating planner you can download to help you out.
    Invitations! Send out invitations for your hens or bucks party, and then the wedding. Typically wedding invitations are sent 3 months in advance. Although this is flexible, and sometimes a save-the-date is important especially for friends or family that might need to travel a long way, arrange time off work, or save up to attend!

  12. Honeymoon

    Yay! This can be any time you like. Soon after your wedding day, or some time later. Many travel agents offer a honeymoon registry and can be an easy, but fabulous gift from your guests. If you are planning on changing your name, ensure you have your passport and travel documents in the same name! It might also be necessary to have a credit card in this name too, especially when confirming bookings or collecting tickets.

  13. The last details

    Maybe you’re looking for something unique to finish off the day? Or a dance studio to WOW your guests with a special routine? A thank-you gift for your bridal party and / guests.

How to Choose Your Perfect Sydney Wedding Cars

Usually the best place to start is refining your requirements.

  1. How many people are you needing transport for?
  2. How many pickup locations?
  3. Will you require cars whilst undertaking photos after your ceremony?
  4. Will you require transfer to a reception venue?
  5. Will you require transfer to accommodation after your reception?
  6. Will you require transport for parents, children, or other special guests (eg grandparents)?
  7. Does your wedding have a theme that you would like your choice of wedding transport to accommodate?
  8. What will you be wearing? Brides with large trains, or hooped skirts may need wide access doors and a large seating area – small cabins might not be suitable.

Create an transport plan. Number of people, number of hours, start and end suburbs, type of cars most suitable – stretch limousine, classic cars, modern machines. Once you have this sorted, select a shortlist of wedding transport companies and send them an enquiry! Compare packages and inclusions and meet with your shortlisted wedding car suppliers. This will help you double check that they’re going to be able to deliver what you require.
