Yoshi and Ellie were married in mid February at Sydney’s heritage listed quarantine station. The Q Station is located at North Head, Manly and accessed through the Sydney Harbour National Park. If you are not familiar with the Q station it’s a historical landmark which holds many clues to Australia’s colonial past. It’s an amazing location for a day trip and a super cool venue that’s definitely worth considering for your wedding day.
Some days it’s the rain that can impact a wedding ceremony and on other days it’s the wind, for Yoshi and Ellie it was the heat. The midday heat was very intense and although just a short drive from their onsite accommodation to their ceremony location which was held at Quarantine Bay, I still remember the clapping and cheers from Ellie and her bridesmaids sitting in the back seats as I cracked open Rusty’s safari windows to let the cool ocean breezes flow in.
Yoshi’s mother is Japanese and she flew over especially for the wedding day. She wore a traditional and ornate Japanese kimono which was so tightly wrapped around her body it made it difficult for her to walk. Although she must have been suffering whilst waiting for the family photos in the hot midday sun, she didn’t show it. She had made the effort to fly over from Japan to spend this day with Yoshi and Ellie and she wasn’t going to let a little bit of heat ruin her day. Well neither were Yoshi, Ellie or any of the other guests.
The vintage esky I supplied with fresh ice and cold waters were cherished and it didn’t take long for the waters to be replaced with craft beer and champagne. Whilst the bridal party had their photos, i spent my time cracking beer caps and making sure the bridesmaids glasses were full. The afternoon was filled with jokes and laughter. It was a really fun day spent with great people in a first class location with world class scenery. I’ll never forget Yoshi and Ellie’s wedding day!
