Elissa and Tom blessed by blue skies for romantic Sydney wedding

Wedding: 22/07/2017

Posted by Anna | 6 October, 2017

An outdoor wedding on a winter’s day might sound risky, but Sydney turned it up for this couple’s July 22, 2017 event.

Elissa and Tom, aged 28 and 27 respectively, met in the Hunter Valley through a mutual friend. Neither expected it to go anywhere – both focused on finishing university and beginning their careers. But, as Tom describes, they slowly came together like “pieces of a puzzle”.

A couple of years into the relationship, Tom surprised Elissa with a proposal during a picnic by Sydney’s Harbour Bridge. Several months later they married at their romantic Sydney wedding.

Their ceremony with 80 people at Observatory Hill Park was followed by a reception at The Grounds of Alexandria. “We were blessed with each other, and took a gamble on an outdoor wedding in winter,” explains Tom. “The day turned out perfectly and we had a great time at the wedding and reception.”

“Spend time making a clear vision of the day first, then work towards it,” is the groom’s advice for those planning a wedding. “Keep an eye on the details, as they will make the day perfect.”
