Cottesloe Beach wedding – Sarah and Gary

Cottesloe Beach Wedding - Sarah and Gary The Cottesloe Beach wedding is something to consider when you like the beach lifestyle or just like the idea of getting married at the most popular beach in Perth. The Cottesloe offers an array of places perfect for a lovely ceremony and creative photo shoot in one location.  This is exactly what has appealed to Sarah and Gary. They picked The Arch Monument for their ceremony as it offers easy access and beautiful ocean view. Finally, the day arrived for Gary and Sarah to get married. Gary and all the guests were patiently waiting for the bride to come. Out of the blue, a dark cloud appeared over our heads, and we all got wet.  This was surprising as no one has seen it coming. Fortunately, the rain was light and short. All of us were happy that the rain ended quickly as among all of the guests we only had two umbrellas. One of which was my photography (shoot through) umbrella. Luckily we did not have to repeat the experience of the rain until the reception started. The bride arrived in a vintage VW van which we used later for our photo shoot. The ceremony was perfect as it always is when Blair Fraser is the celebrant. Mother nature joined our side too as it blessed us with beautiful sunshine the moment the bride arrived (That could not have been coincidental). Everything went smoothly, and it is worth to mention that Sarah and Gary had a sand ceremony together with their daughter. After the ceremony had ended, we had a big group shot of all the guests present followed by some smaller family group portraits. We had plans to visit several locations around the Cottesloe, but we ended up having so much fun around the Arch Monument and the vintage VW that we forgot the time. We had to rush to the beach. After all the Cottesloe beach wedding without the beach photos would be incomplete.  30 minutes later and we were done. Just on time not to be late for the reception at the Sea View Golf Club Inc.

Elizabeth Quay wedding – Jess and Boyd

Elizabeth Quay wedding I have no doubt that there are many brides considering to have the Elizabeth Quay wedding.  After all, it is a spectacular and brand new. Most importantly it is located in the heart of Perth's CBD. That is why it was an obvious choice for Jess and Boyd. They decided to have a low-key ceremony at the registry office.  Followed by 2 hours photo shoot around the Convention Centre and the Elizabeth Quay.  It was a perfect day for shooting; not too hot and partially cloudy. We started with a family group shots and then we moved to photograph just two of them. All of the elements fell nicely into the place, and we were able to capture some great shots. The combination of dramatic light, city structures and the lovely couple is always a recipe for success. Jess and Boyd did splendid job following my directions and sometimes performing some twisty posing, but it all paid off handsomely. As a side note: Many people expect to get great photos from their wedding without doing any work. There is an expectation that the wedding photographer will magically make everyone look like models in magazines. Even when the subject stands in a bad light with an unworkable background and a hundred other things which may required adjustment or change. I truly wish it was possible that I just could take a photo and people on it would not hunch, their eyes were in just right place to convey a romantic connection. Their body positions were in a just right direction to the light with appropriate facial expressions and on top of that my camera exposure was just right at that instant.  As you can imagine, this rarely happens without full cooperation, focus and trust of involved parties. This is why I always thank couples who understand this and are willing to put an effort to get some great images. a couple are kissing in front of the Convention Centre Elizabeth Quay wedding photography session.

Iluka beach wedding – Emma and Scott

Iluka Beach Wedding - Emma and Scott A lovely Iluka Beach wedding came true for Emma and Scott. It was Emma's a little dream to get married at the beach ever since she met Scott. She did not have to think twice about what beach to choose. It was a straightforward decision as the Iluka Beach is their favourite. They picked a beautiful  November afternoon for the ceremony. Scott was well prepared on the day, besides bringing compulsory an esky, he also carried with him gardening tools to literally comb the Iluka Beach out of see weeds. Fortunately, he did not have to do it all himself.  His brothers were there to help. When Emma arrived at the Iluka Beach, everything was ready.  All eyes were on her when she was majestically coming down the stairs. The ceremony was full of emotions and tears; not because of the wind but rather because of strong feeling between these two. Ok. Maybe the wind helped it too. After the ceremony, and compulsory photos at the beach all party was eager to jump to a long luxury limousine for a 1-hour fun ride. We have driven to the Hillary boat harbour where we have taken lots of fun images with the bride, groom and the bridal party.  We have done all the package including jumping, carrying the bride above groomsman's heads, wrestling and so on... From the Hillary Bout Harbour, the limo took us to the reception held at the Currambain Bar and Bistro. Emma and Scott planned this part extensively. We even have seen them rehearsing the entry. I must say that this was the best bridal entry we have seen to date. Their effort paid off as no one was expecting such an entertaining arrival. They started the wedding reception with a bang and the great dose of positive energy which was maintained well to the end of the night. Iluka Beach wedding.

Claire and Matthew’s funny farewells at the Caversham House wedding reception.

The end of a wedding reception is always full of emotions. This was one was no exception, with no shortage of humour. The groom and the father of the bride had a somewhat unconventional goodbye. It all started earlier on the day when some of the family members and us photographers were joking about what to do with their hands when standing in a group photo. I just said “squeeze.” This almost always delivers great reactions and consequently fun images. The father of the bride must have remembered my suggestion as he used the "squeeze" technique at the end of the reception, during the "goodbyes", he had a great sense of humour. It is difficult to express how unexpected and therefore hilarious it was; I had tears in my eyes from laughter. Fortunately, we were there, ready to capture this and every other memorable moments of this great wedding. This is exactly why we like to stay to the end of reception. Many couples choose to skip having the bulk of the reception covered by photographers. This is unfortunate because they are missing on so many great moments ready to be captured. Imagine, out of around 900 final selection images for the entire day, between about 400 to 500 of these images almost always come from the reception. In other words, half of the wedding images consist of the reception coverage. Anyway, enough of the obvious. Take a look below at a collection of images from Claire and Matthew's special day. Two in particular from the reception, I like to call: "Welcome to the family, Son." Funny farewells at Caversham House wedding reception. Funny farewells at Caversham House wedding reception.

Takayuki and Akie – Japanese wedding in Fremantle.

Takayuki and Akie come all the way from Japan to have their wedding in Fremantle.  They had only five days available for sightseeing Perth and to get married. We had 3 hours to photograph the ceremony and some creative images at a beach. The ceremony was at St John's Anglican Church in Fremantle and the rest of the time we spent at the South Beach. The ceremony at the church almost felt like a rehearsal because only eight people were present and that is including me, the priest and organist. Despite the numbers, It was very private but lovely wedding with an interesting twist. We did not speak each other's languages. Takayuki and Akie spoken English is basic.  My Japanese is not even close to a basic as it is only limited to 4 words.  Instead, we were using a good old body language and not so old Google Translate; sometimes with funny results. Despite the language barrier, we had a good time, and the Japanese wedding in Fremantle was a success. Japanese couple holding each other at the South Beach.

Belinda and Jay – the Vines Resort wedding

Belinda and Jay - The Vines Resort Wedding in Swan Valley

What a day! There is no better way to start a wedding day than with a Star Wars duel, the force was with us. The groom and groomsman decided to equip themselves with lightsabers just in case someone would oppose Jay and Belinda’s marriage. They had them ready at their belts for anyone who steps out of the line, especially for annoying flies.  We photographed them with caution pre-ceremony, when they were testing each others' skills in some of the dimly lit corridors of the Novotel Vines Resort.

We managed to escape unhurt and we were able to continue our photography quest for the rest of Vines Resort wedding in the Swan Valley. Our next stop was the bride preparation. The girls were completely unaware of the Stars Wars drama that had taken place nearby. Just like that, we found ourselves in a peaceful but bubbly environment photographing the rings, dress, shoes and of course the bride, bridesmaid and the bride’s parents.

Fortunately, there was a ceasefire for the ceremony and for the rest of the day for that matter. I suspect that the boys met with the real force in the universe, when beautiful Belinda made her way down the aisle. Yes, you've probably heard of the wife power. The wife does not even have to lift her arm in order to exert her will. The wife can do what even Yoda cannot. She can manipulate the force just by giving a stern look.

The ceremony was held at a brand-new chapel specially built for the Vines Resort weddings. Belinda and Jay must have been one of the first couples married there.  The Chapel makes a great place for ceremonies as it is open on three sides and it is very wide, thus, shielding every one present from the sun or rain.

After a stunning ceremony, we drove around The Vines Resort Golf Course in a speedy buggy to the great delight of golf players, as not often do they have such a high scoring moving target to aim for.  Would have been a good idea to pack helmets and body armour. Never the less, The Vines Resort is a great place to capture creative wedding images. Just do not get in firing range of competing golf players, because even a lightsaber won't help you.

The wedding reception was also held at Novotel Vines Resort. Everything went to plan; moving speeches brought tears, yummy food and plenty of dancing was a recipe for a moving and fun filled reception. As it was a great and memorable day for us.  Thank you Belinda and Jay for letting us be a part of your Vines Resort wedding.

Perth Zoo wedding of Chelsea and Matthew

Perth Zoo wedding of Chelsea and Matthew.

Chelsea and Matthew are animals lovers, therefore; it was an easy decision on where to get married. The Perth Zoo wedding was the obvious choice. The Perth Zoo is not just a picturesque location for a wedding, it is an adventure.  We had close encounters with kangaroos, a rhino, elephants and scary prehistoric animals alike. It all started at the elephant amphitheatre where the guests witnessed Chelsea and Matthew exchanged their vows and rings while elephants were wandering in the background. After the ceremony, we embarked on a kind of Perth Zoo wedding mini safari. We were driven all over the Perth Zoo to photograph the Rhino, Kangaroos and Tyrannosaurs. Yes, you read it right, the Tyrannosaurs. Nowadays the Perth Zoo is like a Jurassic park with lots of live like prehistoric animals.  This alone makes a wedding at the Perth Zoo a thrilling experience.  We finished the Zoo tour at the Carousel where the reception took place. It was a great wedding with plenty of fun and excitement. Thank you Chelsea and Matthew for letting us be part of your wedding.

Below is a short sneak peek of the day from the Perth Zoo wedding. The bride preparation took place at the Broadwater Resort Apartments in Como. The ceremony was held at the Perth Zoo Elephant Amphitheatre . We shot the creative post ceremony images around the Perth Zoo and the reception took place in the function room next to the Carousel .

Wedding at Joondalup Resort -Samantha and Mitchell

Wedding at Joondalup Resort.

Samantha and Mitchell decided to have their wedding at Joondalup Resort in Perth.  If you do not already know, it is a great place to have a wedding as the resort is connected with beautiful golf course. Samantha and Mitchell know each other for years before he asks the magic question. They met at a gymnast gym where they ware training. According to Mitchell, Samantha was a hard nut to crack but his persistence paid off and eventually she has agreed to go on a date with him. Fast forward and in the Canada, Mitchell found an engagement ring on the floor of a ski resort they were working in together with Samantha.  Mitchell had sudden urge to test Samantha and come up with surprise proposal of the marriage. Samantha could not resist the idea of having to wear this marvellous piece of shiny metal sprinkled with stones so she had promptly agreed to marry Mitchell. All right, I admit. I have made up the bit about the engagement ring. Actually, I do not know how it all happened but what I know is that they are awesome couple and they are truly in love.

Below is short sneak pick of the day. The bride preparation was at the Clarion Suites Mullaloo Beach. The ceremony was at the Country Club Bushlands Gazebo at Joondalup Resort. We shoot at the South Iluka Beach and around the Joondalup Resort.  The reception at Joondalup Resort, poolside marquee.

For some unexplained reason, there is some kind of different energy driving the day on Jewish weddings.  This was not different on Anne and Dylan Perth Jewish wedding.  For starters they organised a lot of thing them self (meaning, all family was involved).  It definitely helps to do that if the family owns a restaurant The Veggie Mama.  Obviously, they made their own food and we were very glad they did because the food was great, really.  Dylan’s sister made beautiful flower decorations and bouquets. They also set up tables at the reception and decorated them. During the ceremony and at the reception Anne’s brother played a violin, adding a nice touch to already great atmosphere. Add to this, Jewish tradition and the unexplained energy driving the day forms by itself.

Despite a rain during the ceremony, Anne and Dylan Perth Jewish wedding was truly memorable. Actually, the rain added the drama to the ceremony and made it more special.  Above all, the rain did not make a dent in overall experience because the rabbi was making every one laugh.

The reception is the biggest part of the wedding, especially on the Perth Jewish wedding. There was so much energy being released during the traditional dancing that it is difficult to describe it.  Just imagine people catapulted in to the air, jumping massive skipping rope, lifting the bride and the groom up on chairs, creating tunnels, dancing circles and that is just for starters.  It was a great seen to witness but it was not easy to photograph as we literally need to battle for the good shooting spot as everything was in whirlpool like motion.  Beside great importance of traditional dancing, the food definitely took the centre stage. There were many great dishes served during the reception but the biggest thing was a dedicated room for just deserts. O boy, they must have seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because they attempted to copy it. They put so many goodies in to one room that many people did not know where to start eating.

For some reason we always shoot many more images on Jewish wedding maybe because there is so many things going on or maybe because of this mysterious energy. I do not know but one thing is certain it was a great day with great people. Thank you all for the kindness and easygoing nature.

Below is short sneak pick of the day.  The ceremony was at the UWA Sanken Gardens in Crawley. We shoot at the UWA University.  The reception was at the UWA Water Sport Complex.

Rain on Your Wedding Day Is Good Luck – Aaron and Darryn wedding

Many say that a rain on your wedding day is good luck in the future. I am sure that this applies to Aaron and Darryn’s wedding even when they had half of the day sunny and half-rainy.  They must have been blessed with plenty of good luck even before the wedding as they announced at the wedding reception that they expecting a baby. They did this in highly entreating way.  Towards the end of the speeches, they ask both parents to come up to receive a present. A large box was brought in to the centre of dancing stage.  Suddenly both mothers started pushing each other to get to the box firs.  It looked serious but hilarious at the same time. To everyone relive they were just fooling around. I was tricked as for the moment I thought that I am witnessing a real fight. In the end, mothers opened the box together. The box was a surprise on its own as upon release of the ribbons a large balloon popup with a sign announcing the gender of the expected child, a girl. Good luck for them!!! Below is short sneak pick of the day.  The ceremony was at the Church of Resurrection in Swanbourne. We shoot at the Harold Boas Gardens and the UWA University.  The reception was at the Royal Perth Yacht Club. White 3 tiers wedding cake with large wedding rings decoration on the top.

Peter and Sylvia – Perth Polish Wedding

Who ever seen this Perth Polish wedding could not help but notice the white and red decoration theme. Everything from ties, bridesmaids’ dresses or flowers to the wedding cake was in white and red. This was not a coincident but deliberate and beautiful reminder of where the bride family come from.  As many of you knows white and red are Polish national flag colours.

Peter and Sylvia decided to have a traditional Perth Polish wedding on Australian soil. Starting from the white and red theme, a ceremony in the Polish church and finishing with a traditional reception gritting and wedding games.  First of all the ceremony in the Polish church was actually very unusual, as two priests from two different churches attended to wedding ceremony.  To be honest, I have never seen anything like it. Ok, maybe it was not so traditional ceremony after all.

After the ceremony, we end up in the Harold Boas Gardens to find some privacy and to take beautiful pictures of the just married couple and the bridal party.  Strait from there we went to the reception where the bride and groom were welcome with bread, salt and two glasses of vodka.  That is where the fun starts. Only one of the two glasses had vodka in it. Whoever gets the vodka glass is going to have upper hand in the relationship. At least that is what the tradition says. Of course, the bride got the strong drink. The rest of the night was full of dancing and hilarious wedding games. So much so that I barely could keep up photographing, as I was laughing hysterically.
