Never mind the Rain at Simone & Matthew’s Springtime Wedding

Through connections between extended family members Simone and Matt had seen each around their whole lives, although it wasn’t until seven years ago that they really started talking. Some chance encounters led to something more, and then a few years later that’s where we came in, on the first day of spring, to record and celebrate their marriage with them!

It was, unfortunately, a pretty rough day for a wedding—it was cold and stormy, with torrential rain and gusty winds that toppled Matt’s parents fence over. But never mind that, we didn’t hear any complaints from the bride and groom, and it was clear that the love they had for each other would shine through any day.

Simone’s mother passed away when she was young, so it was so nice to see the things she did to honour her throughout the day, like choosing to get married in the same church, St Lawrence Church.

Simone was looking for a wedding that was classic and elegant, although the style evolved throughout the planning from whites towards a beautiful, rich palette of reds, pinks and navy blue. She felt bad because she changed her mind part way through, but is grateful to Touched by Angels for being so cooperative.

The venue was the Fraser State Reception Centre, chosen by the couple for the priceless view of the Perth skyline which was perfect for all the inter-state visitors. The couple found Brooke, the wedding coordinator at Fraser’s very helpful, and the feedback from all the guests was that the staff were extremely attentive. Photographs where taken at the Heritage Bar, Brookfield Place and outside Parliament House.

As far as the wedding dress went, Simone only wanted Anna Campbell, she didn’t even try anything else on! The bouquet was not thrown away, it was given to someone special—her grandmother.
