In the full swing of wedding season here in Perth, we were very excited to photograph Bev and Ash’s Fremantle wedding! Not only was it a gorgeous day for a wedding but these two were such a fun and awesome couple to photograph. We were also excited to shoot at one of our favourite churches again, Christ Church in Claremont, for the wedding ceremony.
When we arrived at the hotel, the girls were all bustling around getting their final touches in place. Don’t you just love Bev’s Watter’s wedding gown. I was admiring the three dimensional flower details and how they add so much interest to the gown. Such a gorgeous dress for a stunning bride. The bridesmaids gowns were beautifully detailed as well. I loved the bead work on the silk. Everything looked so elegant on Bev’s girls.
The thing I love best about this photograph is the way you can instantly see the rush of emotions Bev’s Dad felt the moment he saw his little girl for the first time. Mum holding back the tears with this loving look in her eyes. This is why we love what we do so much. These meaningful moments will always be immortalized because of wedding photography.
You can see the close relationship between Bev and the Father of the Bride. What a sweet look this was, caught in the limo on the way to the church on Bev’s special day!
The wedding ceremony at Christ Church in Claremont was beautifully done by Father Peter and was enjoyed by all. Father Peter had some very powerful things to say about love and marriage. I’m sure Ash and Bev felt even closer after his beautiful words. It was the best, most meaningful ceremony I had heard in a long time.
The summer sun warmed the newlyweds as they left the wedding ceremony for the first time as husband and wife! I love the light and dark in this image and the detail on the gown!
We walked around the corner of the church so the happy couple could steal a moment alone before going to St. Georges College Perth.
When we arrived at St. Georges College near Perth we got right into some playful wedding day shots! Don’t you just love the framing of the vines. So lush and green!
The reception took place at Notre Dame, Fremantle , a really romantic place for a wedding reception. So many guests commented on how gorgeous it was to be in an open air reception under the stars. Bathed in strings of fairy lights and candle light, the guests enjoyed the best, most scrumptious 5 star meal and some lovely words about the bride and groom.
You can see how the lights would add so much beauty to our photographs. It really adds a lot of depth to the wedding pictures to consider having some additional lighting at the reception.
Perth has so many perfect wedding locations but I really think Freo’s Notre Dame has got it right. With the rustic history of the brick buildings, the tree top canopy’s and the twinkling lights what a pretty spot. There can be so much romance to an open air wedding reception.
The guests had a fabulous time dancing the night away and Dave and I had an even better time photographing it all. Thanks Bev and Ash for choosing us to document your wedding day!
