Kate and Brendan’s elegant wedding matched their traditional vintage style. Their reception venue at Circular Quay was super-convenient for the gorgeous sweeping photos they took in front of the Sydney Opera House. If you haven’t considered grey for your wedding colour scheme, check out the divine charcoal grey suits and dresses worn by the wedding party. Just lovely.
