The awesome Kristen and Travis got married on a lovely sunny March day, perfect for an outside cocktail reception! What I loved was everything was so easy and accessible. I'm always a fan of the ceremony and reception being in the same location, or at least close by. So cruisy for your guests.


After the ceremony under the massive trees at Matilda Bay foreshore, in front of the most gorgeous floral arbor by Flowers by Elli Paige and Heart Strings Hire and Style, Kris and Trav's guests could mingle in the outdoor space set up for pre dinner drinks and canapés whilst we drove up to Kings Park for some late arvo portraits.

On a whim I decided to go somewhere different, the Green Mile near the DNA tower. I have run through here and know lots of little trails shooting off the big expanse of green. Turned out to be perfect and I jumped around with excitement to get that beautiful sunlight streaming through the trees off on a side trail. 

Crossing the road we jumped into the Botanic Gardens (which I also love walking through, take yourself there stat if you haven't already!) and went for a wander through the different sections. You wouldn't have even known we were in the city. We are so so lucky to have the treasure that is Kings Park don't you think Perthians?


Back to the reception downstairs at Matilda Bay Restaurant and it was full swing into speeches, dancing, mingling, eating (roast on a spit anyone?) and generally partying the night away. 

Thanks to Stevie-Elle, great second shooting job as usual! Thanks Kristen and Trav - had the best day!! You guys just pulled off the perfect wedding, kudos ;) 

Much love xxx

One of the best parts of my job is meeting awesome people. I've never been an extrovert, I'm pretty shy at meeting new people...but being a wedding photographer I'm constantly pushed outside my comfort zone and seeing new faces and holding new conversations literally every weekend. Simone and Aidan made it so easy at their wedding and I felt welcomed into the fold of their families to document their day. Along with trusty sidekick Stevie-Elle as my second shooter, the day flew by as we had an absolute ball. I didn't even notice the massive bridal party to be honest as everyone was so lovely and 'well-behaved' ie cooperated photo-wise haha! 

After a ceremony at Aidan's prior school Wesley College (where he was school captain no less - let's just mention that again hey Aidan? hehe) we hit up Freo's West End for some portraits. Fremantle is one of my favourite places for portraits, whether it's engagement sessions or family portraits or weddings. I could walk around for hours and keep finding nooks and crannies. We were blessed with a tropical February evening, with balmy weather and fluffy little clouds of humidity in the sky as the sun set. 

With final portraits on the jetty at the Fremantle Maritime Museum, the bridal party entered via the stairs and the cocktail reception began with a dance, the sun setting in an orange and pink glow over the harbour. Just a perfect day!



While it's usually stinking hot and humid in Perth in February, the beautiful south west of WA has a cooler climate much more beneficial to weddings in summer! Kim and James decided on a ceremony at Erravilla Country Estate in Yallingup Siding and a cocktail reception just a few minutes away at Rivendell Winery. And what a day it was!

Kim's gorgeous Grace Loves Lace gown had been made even more summery with an open back and removal of the lower lining. As you'll see in the below photos this allowed for some very sexy leg silhouettes at sunset! ;) 

Something always goes 'wrong' at a wedding and you just hope that it's something tiny. With the bride ready to walk down the aisle, the bus full of guests got lost in the backroads of Yallingup and arrived just a little bit late. That's life though and no big deal. Quite frankly I was happy, as the later the better in summer for a ceremony! It ended up being perfect with the sun twinkling through the forest backdrop while Kim and James exchanged their very personal and lovely vows to each other. 

I do think my fave moment of the ceremony was when their friend got up for a reading and spoke gently and lovingly the words to 'I should be so lucky' by Kylie Minogue. Gold. 

As we went off for portraits in the golden hour around the gorgeous Erravilla property, the guests were treated to post-ceremony drinks behind the house at the property, and then on to the High Garden for canapés at Rivendell (I love this place! So many cute little spots!). 

Then the cocktail wedding reception began at Rivendell by K and J leading the guests into the main garden for lots of scrumptious food and a well stocked bar (lots of Howling Wolves wine - yum!). 

Congratulations you two! Hope you had a fab honeymoon!! xoxo
