Spoonful of Love: Lavender Bay Photo Shoot (Part 1)

After our family pictures, we jumped into the cars and headed straight down to Lavender Bay, a harbourside park with many different photo opportunities, many with the Harbour Bridge in the background. We started off on the gravel in front of a massive brick wall. I love that Mr Teaspoon’s little brother is kicking the ground in this photo like, “are we done yet?”


Mr Teaspoon soon became the expert dress carrier. We headed down onto the tiny little beach to get my beloved sand photo.


Our car company was great; they set up a little table and had water bottles, champagne, and most importantly, some awesome basic snacks like Jatz, cheese cubes, and cabanossi. It was the best food I had tasted all day at that point. I was starved, nerves had abated, and my quarter of a ham sandwich from 11AM had well and truly worn off by 4PM. Our bridal party enjoyed some snacks and the girls kept themselves warm in their pashminas.


Gratuitous shoe shot—damn they are awesome.


Finally, we took my beach shot with Harbour Bridge in the background. If only my dress wasn’t crumpled at the bottom, this would be perfect!


I’m sure at this point I was getting used to the small rocks, leaves, and general debris following me around, so I just got on with it and moved my own dress around. Not without the many protests of the girls,  of course!


We were enjoying ourselves, that’s for sure!


Bridesmaid M and Groomsman O weren’t too sure how to dance when it came time for them to join us for the first dance, so they took this opportunity to get some practice in. We looked over to see them practicing, and cracked up! They were absolutely hilarious, and apparently they thought they were, too.



Next up, we headed over to the other side of the park to get some shots by the wharf;


Damn, that dress looks mighty fine from the back!

    @Mrs. Teaspoon: Ahh! Alcanar was my runner up dress, and I’ve been second guessing myself ever since! It’s SO beautiful!

    @penguin_girl_0413: I bought my shoes from a bridal shoe store in sydney called panache, then took them to a bootmaker and had them dyed.

    @brittaful: I’m intrigued about what dress you ended up choosing! If Alcanar was your other option, you clearly have great taste! :-)

    These pics are gorgeous! For some reason, I’m just noticing the men had tails and the women had convertible wrap dresses. I love love love these clothing choices. :)
