Cabarita Park – Wedding Photo Location

Cabarita, just off the M4

A great spot to head to for wedding photography on the fringes of the inner west of Sydney has to be Cabarita Park, which is located right next to Concord at the end of the M4, and pretty much right in the middle of the greater Sydney area. Really easy to access and quite often for me on the way from the church to the reception (or not far off)

The park includes parks/green areas, harbour/river views, a small beach, a long jetty style ferry wharf & also a number of gardens/rotundas suitable for wedding ceremonies.

MAJOR PERKS…

It’s free
So many locations in Sydney these days are starting to charge quite hefty fees for permits to be able to photograph within limited time frames. So this little gem is still free to go along to, which in my books is a major plus ++

Location, location

As I already said, it’s positioning is awesome, let’s say I have a wedding in the Hills and then a reception down south, it is not that far out of the way to head to Cabarita for some awesome snaps, and not having to detour through the city

Harbour/River views

Want water shots, this place has awesome water views, don’t expect harbour bridge and opera house though, we are still a little far west and around the corner here to get those sorts of views:)

Cool Sunsets

As part of the park faces west (where the boat jetty is), if you are there late enough and depending on the time of year you can get some pretty spectacular sunset shots over looking the water

Relatively quiet

So this little gem is a little off the beaten track, so whilst a lot of weddings do stop past here, you will not be potentially inundated with endless wedding parties like a lot of other city harbour locations

Lots of parking

Now, I will say it is not always easy to get parking, but there is plenty of it so if it is not an absolutely stellar public holiday Sydney day, you will usually be guaranteed a few free spaces

ON THE SLIGHTLY DOWN SIDE

Other weddings

Yes, this is a risk you take at any free venue you head to any where in the world, however a great photographer should be able to liase with the other wedding’s teams, to make sure you can all amply share the space, and not feel like you are on top of each other, or worse still playing that awful comparing competitive game on the day (yeah you know the one, their bridesmaid’s dresses aren’t as good yadi yadi…)

A little messy

Depending on the day, there can be a little bit of rubbish washed up or left by previous messy picnickers. This can be easily overlooked, however I thought it best to pre warn and mention

It is a ferry terminal

It is a terminal on the Parramatta ferry line, so people do come and go, and the occasional bus stops in too.

Wet weather

As with most locations, there are limited wet weather options here, there is a large rotunda, and quite large trees you could hang under until it passes, however if it is a terrential day, I would recommending bypassing this as an option. In the case of light drizzle or on and off, no dramas, a good photographer should have umbrellas and have educated you about the in’s and outs of bad weather options:)

Check out some pics from there to see if you like the feel, and if you have any more questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with us so we can answer your Q’s

True Connection

I spend a lot of my days in the Maltese community, and I love it. They are big affairs

140069-0582As I sat as an observer on Luke & Samantha’s day a couple of weeks ago, that was all I could see, absolute love & connection through the whole room. It was awesome… and infectious.
140069-0805Luke & Samantha, you are both very lucky to have such wonderful role models all around you, this has given you as a couple the best start. The way you look at each other, with such respect and understanding, is really wonderful. Congratulations to you both, on finding each other.

In The Moment

There is a great part of a wedding day, where a bride and groom get to really talk with their family and friends for the first time, just after the ceremony is finished… and I just love it! It is always great to see the connection between people who love each other, and genuinely so happy to be together sharing and celebrating.

Andrew & Kylie, really lived this moment on their day, they were so in the moment, and it was so great to watch and photo document:)

Did I mention I love my job!!!

Big dark scary hail clouds = awesome photos

Dave & Ang were very optimistic when planning their day, outdoor beach wedding… no contingency plan nearby, many would not take the chance, but their gamble paid off by the skin of their teeth, or gust of wind in the right direction:)When we arrived at the beach, I was fearful for poor Dave, as the life guards were telling us of the hailstorm headed our way… eek!
Cue big black rain clouds…140050-0296
But as Ang pulled up, the clouds seemed to detour around us so she could have her dream beach ceremony
140050-0263
And WOW, Tony Blay and I could not believe our luck. Have to say, best lighting I have had to work with outdoors, in… can’t even remember!140050-0340
Stunning backdrops, felt like we were on a remote tropical island somewhere
140050-0348
So moral of the story is, Bride’s to be… behind every dark looming scary cloud there is a possibly awesome wedding photographic opportunity:)

Don’t let it rain on my day

So often, I am asked the question, “What happen’s if it rains?” and my answer is invariably always the same, “YOUR FEET GET WET”. Well I don’t want to be that blunt, and I do always feel for people when the rain falls on their day, but I really think it is down to the professionals then to make the call, and I tend to always choose plan A. May not always be a favourite for it by the bridal party on the day, but by God do I get thanked for it after.

My hats have to go off to Paul, Nicole and their entourage on the day. Everyone really just gave it a go, and when we turned up to Hyde Park, it was just bucketing, no other words for it:)But we persisted on to Martin Place, and we (and maybe like 8 other weddings) stood under the stunning arches that surround the banking centre of the city. I was personally a bit gutted for Paul & Nicole, as we had had similar conditions only months before for their pre shoot, how ever we all hung in, and then we got that magic break, with magic light, and we struck gold:)
