Anna Blackman Images - Photographer's Favourite Wedding

"My favourite weddings are always with people who want me to be creative and are keen to have fun, and it’s obvious that Amba and Adam were very ready to enjoy themselves! Amba and Adam met through their dads, who had been life-long friends. I think their parents may have known they were meant for each other even before they did themselves," says Anna of Anna Blackman Images.

"When I first sat down with Amba and Adam we discussed what memories they wanted to create with their wedding photography, and we came up with loving, playful and different. Amba had some great props in mind, and on the day of the wedding we played in vintage cars and a cool old bike with a sidecar, fed a goat, and wore silly hats – to name just a few!

"Of course we still had time for romance and beautiful soft light. Amba had written Adam a song and she played it to him as a surprise, sitting at an old rustic table on the farm and had everyone in tears (except maybe the goat). 

"The best compliment to me is when the bridal party doesn’t want to go to the reception because they had so much fun! Thanks Amba and Adam for choosing me to create the memories for your special day."

High Tea at Seacliff for your Engagement Party

Seacliff are fast becoming famous for their High Tea and with good reason. They have thoroughly researched into the origins of High Tea and have magnificently recreated the setting and experience.

When: The 1st & 3rd Sunday of every month
Where: Seacliff Functions & Private Dining, 16 Cliff Road, Wollongong
Time: 1.30pm to 5.00pm (Bookings Essential)
Cost: $44 per person or $49 for Sparking High Tea

The history of High Tea can be traced back Anna, the Duchess of Bedford (1788-1861). During the middle of the eighteenth century, dinner for the middle and upper classes changed from midday to what was considered a more fashionable evening meal. Due to the change in dining habits, the Duchess “suffered from a sinking feeling” in the late stages of the afternoon. At first the Duchess had her servants sneak her pot of tea and a few breadstuffs. The Duchess then adopted the European tea service format and invited friends to join her for afternoon tea in her rooms at Belvoir Castle. The menu cantered around small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, assorted sweets, and, of course, tea.

At Seacliff’s High Tea the ambiance is set with the heavenly harpist. You will be greeted by their friendly staff offering your drink choice. Teas to choose from include Strawberry Champagne, Turkish Apple or the Seacliff Signature Tea which is a creamy peach taste with hibiscus, apple and elderberries infusions with a sprinkling of sunflower petals.

The three tiered stand of refreshments include a variety of fresh petite sandwiches, heavenly signature scones with homemade jams served with Chantilly Crème, delectable savoury selections and the most outstanding, dainty and divine Petit Fours.

Perfect for special occasions or a day out with the girls. Bookings are essential and must be made Friday prior by 3pm. Private High Teas are available for a minimum of 30 guests on a $49 Sparkling High Tea Menu.
