A night at the Sydney Night Noodle Markets

Hi everyone! It’s been quite a while since our last blog post, so here’s a quick update. It’s been an incredibly busy year for us, and we hope to share more of our wedding posts soon, once we catch our breath from all the post-processing we’ve been doing! In the meantime, here’s a recent photo we took at the Sydney Night Noodle Markets, a yearly event that takes place at Hyde Park around October. The highlights are the Asian food stalls run by some of the most popular eateries in the city.

SWEET treats!

SWEET treats!

It’s always a pleasure when I get to shoot for Gena from SWEETNESS The Patisserie. I absolutely adore her gourmet goodies (they really are sensational) and she has deservedly won so many awards for her fine collection of sweet morsels. Along with packaged treats, Gena also offers a wide range of goodies made-to-order (eg. for birthdays, weddings, corporate functions). A couple of Gena’s creations were published in the Good Living section of the SMH today (p15, 30/11/2010) – Mince Tarts and Nougat! For those who don’t know, the Growers’ Market are a fantastic gathering of local growers and producers of fresh food and wonderful quality hand-made items – I love these initiatives which supports the ‘slow food/lifestyle’ movements and increase awareness and appreciation of the art of beautiful hand-made things. More photos on Facebook – join our page for the latest news and updates! I’m so addicted to Gena’s Rocky Roads at the...
