The beautiful King Edward Park wedding in Newcastle of Zara & Matt was an amazing day to be a part of and to photograph.
King Edward Park is located on York Drive just off Reserve Road in Newcastle. It has been a dedicated recreation reserve since 1863. The park has amazing views over the ocean showing off Newcastle’s beautiful beaches and skyline. There is a beautiful area filled with Norfolk Island pine trees. As well as rolling green hills, a sunken garden. At the top of the park, towards the south, there are the remains of Shepherds Hill Battery and Gunner’s Cottate, which also make great backdrops for wedding photos. The park is also home to the Bogey Hole, which are ocean baths, carved into the rock by convicts in 1819. The park is a simply beautiful place to have a wedding ceremony and photos, and it is probably the most scenic and beautiful park in Newcastle.
I met Zara years ago on a bridal fashion shoot in the Hunter Valley and she was such a delight to work with back then. So I was very excited when she asked me to photograph her Merewether Surfhouse wedding. And it was such a wonderful day to be a part of. There was lots of laughter, lots of pink & bling, a few chin ups and even a horse & carriage ;)
The wedding ceremony was held at King Edward Park in Newcastle. Zara arrived in a horse and carriage the the ceremony took place under the huge, elegant Victorian rotunda. The wedding reception was at Merewether Surf House, with it’s spectacular ocean views.
