They were so in love. There were many tears of joy throughout the whole day. Rebecca and Loren’s wedding day couldn’t have been more romantic and joyful.
Rebecca grew up in WA, Loren was from New Zealand. They found each other in Queensland and came back to WA for their wedding that was shared by the closest of friends and family. They held their wedding at the Meelup beach, arguably one of the most beautiful beach in the South West of Western Australia. The setting couldn’t have been more perfect.
It was a cool and breezy spring day, the sky did open up for a few showers. We did dashed for umbrellas a couple of times, but in turned up to be showers of blessings for all as the dramatic sky provided the best backdrops for photos.
Congratulations to Rebecca and Loren. Thank you for asking us to document your special day.
Sarah brought her beau fiancé, Paul, back to Perth in early spring this year to exchange vows in front of their family and their best friends at the Bicton Quarantine Park. Sarah and Paul, who now reside in Melbourne, wanted to escape the “dreadful” Melbourne weather to celebrate their union in the fair weather Perth. The day couldn’t be more perfect, with nice sun light and clouds to provide drama to the photos when needed. The day ended with Sarah and Paul celebrating their marriage with a drink at the Little Creatures Brewery before rejoining their families for a private dinner.
It was just two months ago when Angela and Jason exchanged their vows in front of their families and the best of friends at the picturesque Milbrook Winery. The day was bright and cheerful, right in the middle of August. It was a beautiful winter morning when the wedding ceremony took place.
Angela and Jason were totally in love. With their two boys at their side and a third soon coming, the radiant bride brought many smiles on everyone’s face, and naturally, Jason could not take his eyes off his beautiful and pregnant wife throughout the ceremony.
Angela and Jason, thank you for sharing your special day with us.
Thanks also to Charlene for assisting me that day.
It was raining quite a bit on Laura and Elvis’s big day. Amazingly as it was, the rain stopped just in time for Laura to leave home for the church. When we were travelling between locations, the rain would start pouring but stop in time when as we arrived. There is an old saying that rain on your wedding day is a lucky omen. The Italians even have a saying for it, “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata”, which means that a wet bride is a lucky bride.
It also appears that this myth comes from several cultures mainly from the Hindu with the idea that a wet knot is harder to untie. Since marriage is often referred to as tying the knot. Rain was also a symbol of fertility to agricultural societies, since rain restored and maintained the wellness of crops. Crops were peoples main source of stability and income so it was thought to guarantee a long happy marriage!
While we did get some raindrops, we managed to stay dry and had some fun capturing awesome images.
Thank you Laura and El for sharing your special day with us. We did have heaps of fun and it was such a great joy to us to witness the love between you two and the love you shared with your family and friends.
Thanks also to Charlene for assisting me.
Amanda and Kieran were married on a perfect autumn day in May. One couldn’t ask for a better day. With cool gentle autumn breeze caressing our cheeks, golden sunlight peeling through the trees, the wedding ceremony was held in the most beautiful setting at the Sunken Gardens in UWA.
It was also an extra special day for me, it was my birthday. What more could I ask for, doing something I was totally passionate about, documenting a special day for a special couple.
The day seemed to past too quickly, I suppose when we are having fun, time always seems to just fly past us at warp speed!
Thank you Amanda and Kieran for sharing such a fantastic day with me. Thanks also to Charlene for assisting me.
It was a cool and breezy autumn day when Yanthe and Mark exchanged vows at the Sandalford Wines. It was an elegant and emotive ceremony shared with family and friends.
Formal portraits with the bridal party were taken at the Lancaster Wines. With the beautiful landscape and dramatic sky as the backdrop, and a fun loving group, we had such a great time and were most reluctant to head back to Sandalford for the reception.
Here are some of the images we captured on their special day….

Everyone could tell that they were so madly in love. Bradley even admitted that he was emotional and almost shed a tear when he first saw Frances walking down the aisle in the chapel.
Frances and Bradley are some of the most brilliant minds that came out of Perth. They have chosen London to be their home and to pursue their dreams and careers. They returned to Perth to be married in the mist of their families and friends.
Frances and Brad, thank you for asking us to document your wedding and sharing such a wonderful day with us. You two are such beautiful people are we wish you all the success in your careers in London.
It was a hot, hot day when Gloria and Damian exchanged vows in Queens Gardens, but the sun had nothing on the couple pizzazz-wise. Gloria and maid of honour cum fashion director Liz kept the energy buzzing and creativity coming throughout the day.
The morning ceremony was followed by a formal portrait session in the city. Urged on by Liz, the couple was never out of ideas in creating romantic or fun poses for the camera.
A lunch time reception held at the Pony Club Restaurant brought the day to a crescendo. It was all about celebrating the union of the two love hearts with their closest of friends and family members. The day was completed when the bridal party headed to the Luxe bar at night for more celebration with friends.
Here are some of the images we captured on the day that we absolutely adore.
Gloria and Damian, thank you for choosing us to document your special day. It was such an awesome day!

It was a pleasant Perth summer day when Lea and Todd exchanged vows at the Manners Hill Park in Peppermint Grove before heading to the Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club for the reception. The weather forecast was for some light showers, but the rain did not eventuate and it turned out to be a pleasant day for the wedding.
If there was one element of Lea and Todd’s wedding that stood out for us, it was the clever use of frangipani throughout the day. There were frangipanis in her hair, in the bouquets, and all over the receiption venue, even on the cake. They were so subtle though, that we didn’t notice the motif straightaway.
We’d put money on what her favourite flower is.
Here are a few photos we captured that day…
Some fun group shots of the bridal party.
More of their beautiful photos can be seen in the slideshow below:

They live in Broome and run the Divers Bell Bed and Breakfast, Ari and Shaun decided to come to Perth to celebrate their union with their family and closest of friends in a beautiful setting of the Yanchep National Park.
Here are some images captured on their special day in mid December last year:

She is so adorable!
Did we catch Ari checking the rock on her ring while she was suppose to kiss Shaun romantically for this shot? 🙂
The reception was held inside the Cabaret Cave within the Yanchep National Park. What a magnificent location!
First dance, the bridal waltz…
