Kandice + Mark

Destined to be – a Sydney celebration of a lifelong friendship and love

It all started in high school but not as high school sweethearts! Kandice and Mark took the friendship route instead, and remained on it for quite a while before they gave in to love. They’ve been together ever since – nine wonderful years dedicated to one another through many adventures because as Kandice puts it:

“We couldn't think of being with anyone else, ever!”

Kandice and Mark’s big day took place on the 11 November 2017 at the gorgeous Metro Mirage Hotel in Newport, Sydney. On why they chose the location, Kandice says:

“We had always pictured a wedding with a view and near the beach. Metro Mirage in Newport was just ideal for us. It really was absolutely stunning!”

Upon arrival at the bride’s home, we were greeted by bridesmaids decked out in black ‘Bride’s Squad’ t-shirts. As anticipation of the big event built, Kandice’s squad did a great job in keeping her steady with lots of laughter and a glass or two of bubbles.

As Kandice made her way down the aisle with glorious Pittwater waterfront as her backdrop, Mark couldn’t keep the tears at bay. And they continued as they both said their vows and headed back down the aisle as husband and wife to the cheers of all in attendance. Those happy tears showed us – and all those present – just how much Kandice means to Mark. As wedding photographers it is truly a privilege to witness such commitment, respect and of course, love.

Next up came the post-wedding shots down at Newport Beach featuring the retro Kombi vans Kandice and Mark had hired for the day. The most special moment captured through our lens though had to be the intimate shots of the happy couple, alone on the beach with each other, those ever-present smiles as wide as the shoreline.

From the first smile of excitement Kandice greeted us with at the bridal preparations, all the way through to the belly laughs Mark let out at the reception, we loved every second of capturing this very special day as two amazing people finally got to say their ‘I do’s’.
