It’s such a pleasure to photograph gorgeous weddings. And the thing that makes weddings look great every time is a talented wedding planner. Just such a person is Cathrin D’Entremont, owner of CD Weddings – in my opinion, Perth’s best wedding coordination & design company. This past weekend Cathrin arranged a gorgeous little wedding in the main Rotunda at Kings Park – just steps from the War Memorial and with sweeping views of the Swan River. Below is a photo of the Rotunda almost ready for the first guest to arrive… and it couldn’t have been a nicer day.
From the ceremony I headed down to Matilda Bay Restaurant to photograph the reception set up Cathrin had designed. The bride had been specific – a minimalist approach with splashes of detail… And as always, Cathrin created a stunning space for guests to enjoy.
As you probably know, Matilda Bay Restaurant boasts some of the best River views in Perth, with boats gently rocking in the foreground and the Perth skyline reflected in the water, it’s hard to picture a more tranquil spot to celebrate the first meal as a married couple with friends and family.
Upon arriving, the light was streaming through the magnificent gum trees and birds were singing. The Matilda Bay staff were putting the finishing touches on the seating arrangements and straightening linens.
The room you see here is the Catalina Room, which can be used as an open air space (as seen below) or closed off of the weather cools down.
The floral arrangements below were created by Flower Talk. I love the way the tones perfectly match the terracotta tiles of the building and the soft mauves reflect the Swan River in the afternoon.
The gorgeous cake was designed by The Bent Spoon
The gorgeous white leather furniture, light boxes and cherry tree are all rented from Phenomenon.
As dusk settled in, the guests arrived to the ultimate reception location at the perfect time and started off a wonderful night of celebrating with a cocktail.
Thanks again to Cathrin & Rebecca for the opportunity to photograph this gorgeous Matilda Bay Restaurant wedding reception, setup by some of Perth’s best wedding suppliers.
