Prue Vickery Photography – Unconventional Wedding Locations

Weddings come in all shapes and sizes, a fact that I love to celebrate. While I’ve photographed my wonderful share of big white church weddings, I specialise in smaller, offbeat weddings that sometimes walk a little on the wild side. I just love the idea that a wedding can be so many different things, and can express a couple’s loves and tastes so uniquely. And sometimes these weddings take place in places that you’d never imagine! Here are some of the interesting wedding locations I have had the privilege of shooting. It might give you something to think about when

Unposed wedding photography – Kate and Seb in the Hunter Valley

I consider myself the luckiest girl in the world that I get to photograph the wedding of interesting people. It really is a gift - they are trusting you with the documentation of one of the most special days of their lives, and I'm especially lucky because the people I get to photograph are always special, fascinating specimens of humankind. They're always a bit different, a bit kooky, a bit more sparkly than the rest of us regular joes. And this wedding was black tie, too, which made it that extra bit unusual. Kate and Sebastian were married at the Sisters

Unposed wedding photography – Emma and Dan in Kangaroo Valley

I wish I could show you every single one of the photographs from this beautiful wedding, but we'd be here all day, frankly, and I really don't think my bandwidth would cope. Emma and Dan were married in the Kangaroo Valley at a little farmstay called Broger's End. This gorgeous location is relatively secluded in the valley, surrounded by paddocks and trees and feeling for all the world like a country wedding paradise. The short, intimate ceremony was held in the dairy garden and the beautiful reception in the huge converted shed, with a barbecue buffet and the most amazing cake you've

Unposed wedding photography in Hunter Valley – Liz and Tom

Are these guys just perfection, or what? Liz and Tom were married at the Starline Alpaca Farm Stay in Broke, NSW. They are both vegetarians and are enormous animal lovers, so it seemed only right for them to be married on a farm surrounded by beautiful (if a little feisty) animals. The Hunter Valley region is notorious for its beautiful scenery, lovely people and great food, and it certainly delivered this for them with their lovely outdoor wedding under the gums and wonderful vegetarian buffet reception in the intimate, light-filled reception hall. What I loved most about this wedding was the simplicity and

Unposed wedding – Belinda and Tim at the Powerhouse Museum

Best. Wedding. Ever. I was honoured to be asked to document the moment that Tim and Belinda were married at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. They're both amazingly smart and accomplished people, and having an unconventional ceremony in a science museum was a perfect fit. They wanted wedding photography that was relaxed, unposed, and as clever as they are. They had a beautiful and heartfelt ceremony in the Powerhouse boardroom, then together we had a great time running around the museum, exploring exhibits they hadn't seen since they were children, laughing and dancing in the halls, and trying out as many of the

Unposed wedding – Eliza and Warren

I love spontaneous weddings. Eliza and Warren decided to get married while in Australia, on holiday from the UK, with a grand total of NINE WEEKS to organise an 80+ person wedding. What did they manage to pull off? Only a glorious, sunbathed, genuine, heartfelt and stunningly elegant affair. Obviously, to plan a wedding from another continent with just over two months, they are ridiculously relaxed people, and it was this happy and easygoing attitude to wedding planning that caught my attention when they enquired with me. Chilled out people, planning a chilled out simple wedding,  with all the bells and whistles

Unposed surprise wedding – Maeve and Lorenzo

Maeve and Lorenzo invited me to photograph their wonderful and unusual surprise wedding in the small town of Katoomba, in NSW's Blue Mountains. They had told all of their friends that they were meeting at Hotel Blue for themed murder mystery 40th birthday party for Lorenzo, with their guests none the wiser as to their plans. After guests drove through the thick fog and gathered in the amazing lounge for a "present reveal", Lorenzo coyly placed a flower in his buttonhole, a harpist began to play, and then out walked Maeve in an incredible floor-length gown. I can't begin to tell you

Wedding on the beach – Verity and Wazza

Beach. Teal dress. Celebratory piñata. Oh man. This wedding. Ooooooooh, this wedding. Verity and Chris (aka "Wazza") called me because they were looking for some simple, documentary wedding photography that didn't involve spending two hours away from their guests to take posed photographs. They came to the right girl. They were married at Coledale Beach on the NSW south coast, in a nice quiet spot beside the surf club with only their immediate families in attendance; they then had seventy of their nearest and dearest friends gather inside the surf Coledale Surf Club for drinks and nibbles and very light-hearted frivolity. The weather was

Wedding – Jess and Liz

I just want to lay it out for you all, since I don't want to be a vendor who is vague about the people to whom they offer services - I am absolutely and unequivocally in support of same-sex marriage. I love weddings, I love marriage, and I believe that everyone should have the right to marry the person they love. I'm an equal opportunity vendor - I serve the conservative, the liberal, the straight, the gay, the single, the disabled, the differently-abled, the young, the old, and everything in between. I'm delighted that my straight friends and clients have

Hindu Wedding – Aneetha and David

Aneetha and David got married in a wonderful Hindu ceremony in Helensburgh, Sydney, and I must say that it was a real pleasure to witness this most symbolic and intricate of nuptials. I ended up delivering them over 700 images across 4 hours of ceremony coverage - I just didn't want to miss a moment of this ceremony, rich in the symbolism of ancient scriptures and cultural traditions. There was laughter, there were tears, there were many contributors to the ceremony, and many wonderful gestures made by the couple's family and friends. So understand me when I say that this

Event shoot – Sarah and Michael’s wedding

Sarah and Michael were married on Shelly Beach in Manly, NSW, and on the nicest day September has ever seen, with a small morning ceremony and a breakfast reception at Le Kiosk, the beachside restaurant. It was fun, light, and beautiful. Sarah and Michael were relaxed and easy-going, and while they are a couple who definitely value photography and wanted nice photos of themselves, they really wanted me to spend my time capturing the moments of their family and friends instead of intensive posing sessions and awkward embraces for the camera. We were out for photos for maybe fifteen minutes,

Event shoot – Greek Orthodox Christening

I wanted to share just a few (of the many hundreds!) of the photographs I took for a client at the christening of their twin babies. Remember these beautiful twins? Their lovely mother Georgie commissioned me to shoot their first big life event at the Greek Orthodox church in Belmore, Sydney. It was a beautiful day, followed by a raucous evening - these people sure know how to party! The Belmore church is awe-inspiring, and taking documentary photos there was a joy. It's so nice to think that these girls will have photographs to look back on when they are

Event shoot – the birth of Rosalind

As a passionate documentary photographer, one of my goals for 2013 was to photograph a birth. I had the exciting opportunity to do so when Isabel requested my presence at the birth of her first daughter. Unfortunately, it just wasn't to be - Rosalind was unexpectedly born in the early morning after a very surprising three hour labour. So my first glimpse of this new baby and her wonderful parents was a few hours later, when visiting hours began, during which I took these intimate images of Rosalind's first day of life. It was a moving experience, actually - observing

Event shoot – Ruby’s 1st birthday party

I had the great pleasure of flying over to Perth to commemorate the first birthday of little Ruby. I've shot weddings, nightclubs, pubs, 30th birthdays, 90th birthdays, engagement parties, and everything in between - but this was my first first birthday! A big party, with lots of planning and food preparation and decoration and love poured in to it, and many family and friends and children came from near and far to gather around to help Ruby blow out her candle. Not to mention it was very, very pink. It was a fantastic day and a truly beautiful party. Ruby
