Josh + Nicole | Lamont's Bishops House | 8 April 2017 {Perth Wedding Photographer}

Josh and Nicole, childhood sweethearts together since high school, finally tied the knot in a heartfelt ceremony at the ever stunning Lamont's Bishops House, in the City of Perth recently. 

Surrounded by family and friends, many who had flown in for the weekend, these two lovebirds shared their vows in a testament of true love, which has quite obviously stood the test of time. 

Wearing a beautiful gown by Anna Winato, with styling and flowers by Bits and Blooms, HMUA by The Look By Us, and a suit from MJ Bale, Josh and Nicole set the scene for their classic feel wedding with a rustic garden vibe. The theme was further enhanced by their team of fabulous vendors, which included Lamont's Bishops House (venue and catering), Barb Howard (celebrant), Jo Reid (piano entertainer), Vintage Letters & Co (light up letters), and Brooke and Jean Henderson, Nicole's clever mum and sister, who made the incredible wedding cake. 

So backed by these creative peeps, I set myself loose on the grounds of Lamont's, to document the day as it unfolded around me.  Built for the first Anglican Archbishop of Perth in the 1850's, and nestled in amongst the city skyscrapers, Lamont's is a stunning venue for a wedding, and a photographers dream, with its rustic colours, soft light and and sweeping gardens.

And of course, it's always a pleasure to work with couples like Josh and Nicole. So congratulations to you both, and thankyou again from the bottom of my heart for inviting me to be part of your special day with you...

 

Wayne + Rachel | Darlington Estate Winery | 10 February 2017 {Perth Wedding Photographer}

It was a dark and rainy day for Wayne and Rachel's gorgeous rustic wedding at Darlington Estate Winery in the Perth Hills recently - and in the middle of February too - who would have thought?!  But that didn't deter these two, or their family and friends, from celebrating the love that they so obviously share, with a beautiful and unforgettable ceremony and reception, as the rain came down around them.  

But even though the weather misbehaved, it was actually a blessing for me, because the light was soft, even, and really quite beautiful, resulting in wonderfully moody images shot at high ISO's and wide open apertures.    

Wayne and Rachel first contacted me on a recommendation from Rachel's Dad, who I worked with in the agricultural industry for many years.  It's always just that little bit extra special to be asked to shoot such an important event for someone I have a connection with, and I felt blessed to be given the opportunity to both capture and share their day with them, and many others I know through the industry.

And so many beautiful details too!  All credit to the amazing vendors they chose to work with, including Darlington Estate Winery (venue), David Cohen (celebrant), Beans & Bunches (florist), Lailee Taj (HMUA), Desiree (cake), Delish Ice (icecreams), Luv Bridal (bridal gown) and Taro Cash (suits and menswear), who came together to create this couples dream day.

Congratulations to you both, and thankyou, I feel privileged to have been a part of it with you...
