Both from Northern Ireland have chosen Australian as home. With each side of the family flying in they just wanted a chilled day, drinking, parting and dancing with their nearest and dearest, and their gorgeous little boy.
Nic said on her client form that just warmed my soul (along with all the hints about liking a drink, girl after my own heart) "but everything Stuart does is to make mine and H's life better and to make us feel happy and secure. I think I might be the luckiest person in the world (sorry if this is gushy and don’t show him this!!)" .......how freaking perfect is that, and sorry Nic I'll gush for you, the man needs to hear that!
"Booking Mel was by far the best decision we made when planning our wedding. The style and quality of her images is STUNNING (as you can see) and she is the loveliest woman in the world and managed to make two awkward, not used to being in front of a camera types, feel so comfortable and relaxed, and it shows in the photos!! She shot our wedding on her own and managed to capture photos from every angle, of every detail, without us even noticing. She captured the emotion of the day and little moments we had forgotten all about until we received our pictures. We have all our photos less than a month after our wedding and are obsessed with them all. Mel is also super reasonably priced for one so ridiculously talented and every interaction with her, from before we booked, until now, has been perfect. Thank you so much, you Wonder Woman x"

Two super chilled humans got married on the 3/11/18
Well they actually got married a week earlier at the registry office. But on the above date pulled off a ceremony in front of loved ones.
And as two super chill breakdancer people do they throw tradition out of the window and do it their way. Getting ready together while having local cafe coffee and pastries with friends. They a morning ceremony up top of the Flour Factory and opt to have a brunch style function down stairs.
It's so wonderful to meet up with my couples before the big day for their engagement shoot. Most couples tell me they aren't good in-front of the camera and they don't really have a "nice" photo together. I have a chuckle inwards and think well I'm about to change that.
Pre wedding shoots are a great way to get over those in front of the camera nerves. We get to meet (so I can relax and find out your not a bridezilla or groomzilla;) and you can see how I work, and feel at ease about having me follow you around on your wedding day.
I meet up with Sally and Chris at Green Place Reserve, we ended up with a beautiful moon rise over the water.
It was one of those classic Perth sunny days in October when Enuah and Robert said their I do's.
I was introduced to wedding games (the best) where the girls get money from the boys and they get to torment and embarrass them, from making them sing pop songs, eating wasabi and jumping on acupuncture matts. And only if they do it good enough does the groom get to the emotional bride.
The girls got ready in the beautiful Como The Treasury. After all the games we took some pre photos around the hotel then headed to Christ Church Claremont for an early intimate ceremony. Then onto The Indiana for a reception lunch.
We finished off by taking some wedding photos down on the iconic Cottesloe beach.

Planning a backyard wedding, and wondering if you can pull it off? These two did such an amazing job, styling their gorgeous Perth Hills backyard into a relaxed, elegant intimate day surrounded by the bush they love so much around their home they built together. With the help from the girls from Confetti & Co to pull it all together. Woodfired pizza, some of Brenden's home brew and dancing the night away under the festoon lights (bugs and all)
Brenden even hand built his own pallet bar!
Kathryn with her parents (over form the UK) and her sister as bridesmaids got ready at the beautiful historic Station House in Mount Helena, while the boys got ready at the house.
I first meet Laura and Fraser while they were on bridesmaid and groomsman duties for another of my lovely couples. So I was thrilled when they emailed me to say they'd like to book me as well.
Such warm genuine people full of love for each other and their families, it was a pleasure to capture all of it.

A day I won't forget in a hurry, when the thermometer reached 40 degrees and a snake during bridal portraits. But the heat made for a beautiful balmy night on the grounds of the beautiful historic Faversham House in outback York Wester Australia. Rachel and Jamie had an intimate ceremony on the grounds, we then headed down town for bridal portraits and finished up at Mt Brown over looking York and popping a bottle of champagne.
They both got ready at Faversham with the boys taking over the cellar room and the girls upstairs.
A few weeks ago I popped down south to photograph Skye and Mathew's wedding day, here is their sneak peek.
