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.

I was lucky enough to be asked to be apart of the Tradewinds wedding open day on the 15th of September. These events are great for checking out a venue and meeting some of Perth fine wedding industry folk.

Sarah and Lara contacted me before the laws had changed and their ceremony was going ahead regardless of our sometimes backwards country.
Saturday the 13th of October was one of the best weddings I've been to. These two did everything their own way and it created a relaxed special day from the get go (Sarah even had to go in for uni work the morning of!!). From getting ready together (up till getting in their gowns) a first look followed by a bridal shoot, then having everyone come for what they thought was an evening to celebrate their engagement was actually and evening wedding set up on the banks of the swan river in front of the The Nedlands Yacht Club.
All week we'd been watching the weather and a forecast of 10 to 20mls was predicted even up to the very day, I lost count of the times vendors said to each other how amazing it ended up. But it held off the whole evening.
The day was even more magic with the help of these vendors

I can't wait for their Down South wedding in March 2019.
These two smouldered on their pre wedding shoot out on our farm in York. Alastair has a beautiful old car that he wanted in the shoot along with their fur baby. Maria styled a cheese board and they popped a bottle of champagne on the side of the road.
