Sydney Opera House – An Australian Icon

I’ve been wanting to do a photo shoot at the world heritage listed Sydney Opera House for a very long time for my personal blog! And finally we got there! It was a whirlwind trip to Sydney which saw us getting up at 4am to catch our flight up there. We wanted to make the most of our time off!

Melbourne weather in Sydney

First stop was the Sydney Opera House. The sun was shining and it was a typically humid Sydney day. The morning was not our preferred time to for our photo shoot (we still had all the luggage from the flight with us). We had wanted a sunset photo shoot but thought best to get it over and done with. The lack of tourists that time of day was really appealing. Right after we finished our photo shoot, the rain poured down! 

Impressive – The Sydney Opera House

How impressive is this Australian icon! This amazing sculptural building was designed by a Danish architect, Jorn Utzon. It was opened officially by the queen in 1973 and sits right in the middle of Sydney Harbour, providing quite a spectacular backdrop for photography or just some sight-seeing. This monument is known worldwide. Pity we don’t have something like that in Melbourne!

What’s more important than the backdrop … the outfit!

Searching for the right dress for this photo shoot took a bit of time. This black and white origami style Karen Millen dress with a ruffled shoulder was just perfect. It looks a bit like a sculpture itself. How I love Karen Millen designs! The fabrics, styles and workmanship of their pieces are of top quality and still fairly affordable. The shoes are from Steve Madden.

The Sydney Opera House is a place you shouldn’t miss visiting if you are ever in Sydney.
