One of our favourite weddings of the Summer has to be Jeff & Rachel’s at the UWA Sunken Garden & Sandalford Winery in the Swan Valley. It’s definitely a beautiful wedding and we’re very excited to share it with you!
Jeff and Rachel are an amazing couple (check out their engagement session), they really have such a strong bond with each other. You can easily see that they are truly the best of friends and have a lot in common. Not only are they are both dentists but they love to swing dance and have fabulous style! One thing we really loved about them was to see a couple that are not only together because of the love they have for each other but because of the love they have for God as well. Their love and spirit really shines and we think you’ll see that through these photographs.
Rachel was an absolute vision with her ruby red lips and skin like porcelain. Her vintage 50’s gown was pure perfection! It made her looks as if she was transported from an era of old elegance and style. All of the bridesmaids seemed to float with their soft peach silk gowns. I just loved the way the bridesmaid dresses looked with the hues of the floral bouquets.
It’s always a bit of fun when the guys wear fashionable groomsman socks, lol! They sure had some wedding day style and a few good laughs!
Rachel looked ethereal, floating down the aisle. As the wind caught her veil it took Jeff’s breath away. I love the look of him totally enamored by her beauty.
We love shooting at the University of Western Australia Sunken Garden. It’s a spectacular setting for the perfect wedding ceremony. It’s a peaceful, natural location surrounded by majestic trees. A gorgeous place to exchange vows and can easily accommodate all of your loving friends and family.
The ceremony was so spiritual and heartfelt. Everyone experienced a tear or two when the vows were read.
As they were announced man and wife the wedding guests cheered and the happy couple were so ecstatic. They smiled with delight as they walked down the aisle. Rachel’s vintage gown looked so whimsical on her, what a classic beauty she is!
The great thing about getting married at the Sunken Garden’s in UWA is having one of the best wedding photography locations in Perth at your finger tips. The stone columns and archways make an amazing backdrop for wedding pictures.
Lots of gorgeous greenery to play with as well. The grounds are so well kept, there are limitless photography locations at UWA!
Not sure if we have any Plants vs. Zombie fans out there… If we do you’ll get the image above. We love having funny moments with our couples!! So hilarious!
Absolutely adorable is how I would describe these girls! Sweet as sweet can be 🙂
Oh, the romance! I love this snugly shot. I also love the vibrant greens and all of the goodness the UWA gardens have to offer!
And in vintage style our newlyweds whisked away to the Swan Valley and Sandalford Winery!
I love this gorgeous rickety old house on the Sandalford Winery property. So old fashioned and so much soul to this image.
We took our handsome bridal party for a drive in the country to this lovely locale. It’s a spot we stumbled upon when we were photographing a couple that flew in from Hong Kong for a photo session with us. You may remember seeing their fun session on the blog…
These guys look pretty good I have to say. They’ve really got some serious style and charm!
The shot above says it all. This couple just glows with love. They took a moment to thank God for their blessings and just to feel His presence. Such a powerful shot for us. It really feels amazing to be able to create these meaningful images for our clients!
Oh… how I love vineyard weddings. There is so much beauty in natural country weddings portraits.
How breath-taking is the silhouetted photograph! It looks like a dream or maybe a movie poster, so magical!
The wedding details were a lot of fun. Rachel and Jeff had so many creative and unique wedding ideas!
The oak barrels and old winery charm made for a elegant evening for all!
One of our favourite things about the Oak Room at Sandalford Wines is the fact that it looks as regal as it does all the time. So timeless with so much character. It’s interesting to see all of the barrels stacked row on row! The room really gives you the full winery wedding experience.
We really pride ourselves on the fact that we provide wedding reception coverage. It’s not always such a common thing here in Perth, but we find that there are so many beautiful moments that happen during speeches that we would otherwise miss if we didn’t offer this. The true expressions really do come out during this time. All of the smiles and the tears from those you love most. Isn’t that what wedding days are all about. Bringing the ones you love the most together to witness your love and telling them what they mean to you.
Our evening came to an end with a beautiful bridal waltz. Since Jeff and Rachel love to dance it was even more special. Such a perfect end to a prefect wedding day! Thanks again to Rachel and Jeff for choosing us and having us along to your UWA and Sandalford Winery wedding!
