Manel and Macky are from the Phillipines, and it was decided that they come all the way here to Sydney to get married.
They looked up the most trusted source of wedding information, Dr Google and typed in best small wedding locations in Sydney, and found the Grounds of Alexandra to be right up there on top.
So they quickly decided within minutes of seeing their website this was going to be the place they would come to celebrate their marriage.
And they also found Images by Kevin as well from Instagram.
Isn’t it just amazing that the Internet makes the world so small despite being so huge!
It was my absolute honour to be part of their destination wedding in Sydney. They decided to choose The Lock Inn at the Grounds of Alexandria. A small, intimate room tucked away behind the Potting Shed.
It is dark, moody and reminds me of a old American hunter’s log cabin complete with a real Deer bust and bottles of old Gin, rum and whisky. It has got character in spades, and the room is perfect for a small elopement style Sydney wedding.
Not only is the venue a great place to have your wedding ceremony and reception, it is pretty darn great for your bridal party photos. I love how much character the place oozes, without trying too hard. I guess if your venue was situated in a old pie factory and warehouse it’s still got the old world charm about it.
The food is also amazing, and lives up to its reputation of being generous and substantial, so you won’t need to duck off to Maccas afterwards (You’ll love the food at the Grounds of Alexandria!)
Highly recommend you check out The Grounds of Alexandria for your wedding photography
