Dani & Alex | 20.01.2018

November 23, 2018

Wedding venue: Ripples Chowder Bay
Photographer: Rachael Muller
Event Stylist: Ashdown & Bee
Cake: Unbirthday

Dani and Alex’s wedding ceremony was held overlooking Clifton Gardens and the glistening waters of Sydney Harbour.

The gorgeous couple shared an intimate vow exchange on a beautiful private boat docked at Chowder Bay Wharf. The newlyweds and their guests then took the short walk up the jetty to heritage-listed waterfront venue, Ripples Chowder Bay, to continue their celebrations.

A January wedding provided spectacular weather, adding to the relaxed, summery feel of the day. Colourful, island-inspired décor filled the venue and each table was donned with delicate florals and fresh pineapples.

The roof of the deck was opened up to allow guests to enjoy a truly unique experience as the sun set and they dined beneath the stars.

The final touch of this charming wedding saw guests line the wharf, giving the new bride and groom a magical send off before they departed by boat.
