Ash + Kim, Ballast Point Park and The Royal Oak Hotel, Balmain, Sydney Wedding.

Oh how I love a local wedding! I’m a Rozelle resident, and I love nothing more than flowering events and weddings in my local area. Ash and Kim were past residents of the area and they loved in so much they decided to return for their wedding. A gorgeous, park ceremony at Ballast Point Park in Balmain, following by a fun, beautiful reception at The Royal Oak Hotel.

Now, maybe I’m a bit biased seeing as how I also held my wedding in a pub (in Balmain too, no less). But there really aren’t enough pub weddings! Everyone loves a pub (and if you don’t then this is probably not the website for you), they always have a decent steak or parma night, AND it’s usually a buttload cheaper than those ‘wedding factory’ venues with the set menus and generic table centrepieces. Seriously brides, get out there and check out some local pubs.. I think you’ll be presently surprised.  

This wedding was also chock full of killer vendors (see list below). Ballast Point Park, with it’s lush surrounds and epic views of the harbour (and perfect location away from hordes of people) is perfect for a casual ceremony and The Royal Oak Hotel has a stunning upstairs function room, with gorgeous ornate fire places and an outdoor rooftop courtyard. Not to mention the epic bridesmaid gowns that Kim selected for her gals.
