UWA makes for a stunning backdrop at Kristy & Kyle’s Matilda Bay wedding

Kristy & Kyle wanted a riverside ceremony with views of the city skyline, and they came all the way down to Perth from Karratha to get it! They certainly chose one of the most picturesque locations along the Swan River—the Matilda Bay Foreshore. After a beautiful ceremony on the river banks, and a photography session on the UWA grounds, the wedding finished with a stylish reception at the Matilda Bay Restaurant.

Michael & Kelly’s Swan Valley Wedding at The Vines Resort

Kelly is from Sydney and Michael from Perth. They continued a long-distance relationship for three and a half years before moving interstate to be with one another. They actually booked me for their wedding several years back—so it was something of a long wait, but they got there in the end and it was totally worth it. Kelly was a super stunning bride and Michael a cool character.

“Oh Jake used to run round the farm in the nude”—is this the most brilliant wedding song you’ve heard?

So a friend of ours, Jake York from Western Australia, got married this week to Charlotte Carol from NSW, and we just had to share the song performed by his brother, Sam, and his friend, Lach. These two have a reputation for wedding tributes, but this just may be their best work yet—a two-part song combining country and Aussie hiptop.

Vince & Anne-Marie’s backyard marquee wedding in Gnangara

Anne-Marie and Vince got married in early June, and fortunately found themselves exchanging vows on a sunny winter’s day (not that rain has to mean wedding disaster). They certainly got the most out of the day—an outside ceremony against the limestone backdrop of the Brookleigh Equestrian Centre in the Swan Valley, photography sessions on the Brookleigh grounds (Anne loves horses!), at the wooden bridge over Bells Rapid, and at Gnangara Pines, followed by a reception at Anne’s father’s property just nearby.

Michelle & Craig’s beach wedding at Bunker Bay

Well how’s this for a cute story—Michelle and Craig were neighbours as children until Craig’s family moved away when he was 15, and she was 10. Twenty years later they met once again, hit it off and found themselves engaged within 6 months! The couple got married in December 2016, and they decided on something relaxed, beachy and fun.

Get inspired by Alicia and Alex’s delightful rustic wedding in Busselton

Well, I’m so glad the shots of the couple’s first dance turned out so well because for Alicia, it was one of her favourite moments—dancing in the clouds. Alicia and Alex got married in April last year at the Old Broadwater Farm in Busselton. They both had large families so they wanted the day to be loud and entertaining for all their relatives to enjoy, and that’s exactly how it turned out.

Did Clyde & Shona make the best wedding video of the year?

Clyde & Shona had the craziest wedding I’ve attended all year—just so much fun! Actually it was pretty normal to begin with, the couple got married at the at St Michael the Archangel Chapel in Leederville with the reception at the Aquarium of WA (AQWA), and some photo sessions in between. They wanted to get married at AQWA because Hillary’s was the same place Clyde had proposed.

Ashleigh & Clinton’s Fremantle Wedding

Ashleigh and Clinton where such a lovely couple and so photogenic. They were open to different ideas which gave me plenty of scope for creative experimentation and led to some wonderful shots. They chose the beautiful Sorrell Park along the banks of the Swan River for the ceremony, and it was the perfect place to celebrate their special day with family, friends and… their Labrador, Indi! (She was so well behaved and made the perfect groomspet).
