Looking for a private grand heritage country property to host you wedding? Buckland Estate may just be it, rolling hills of the picturesque Avon Valley, less then 100kms from Perth.
I had the privilege of being there on Buckland's first wedding open day, capturing the wonderful set ups of some very talented industry folk.

Sally and Chris got married at Guildhall in Fremantle, a beautiful historic building. The space was flipped after the ceremony while guests headed across the road for some drinks at Miss Browns. They enjoyed a perfect evening in the outside courtyard under the stars.
Sally comes from an artistic family, they put together those heavenly vibrant blooms on the entrance table. Wildwood took care for the bouquets and free standing arbour.

Hayley and George held their modern minimalist ceremony and reception in the upstairs room at The Guilford Hotel, The golden sharp arbour looked amazing against the unfinished industrial walls of the hotel. And those dark blooms by Floral State made my jaw drop.

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.
