One Man, and Four Little Ladies

I must say, this groom is brave! He not only gained a wife during the couple's absolutely gorgeous ceremony at Darlington Estate, but he also gained three baby sisters! All three of which, stood by their sister's side, as she said "I Do" to the man of her dreams. The bridesmaids wore matching burgundy dresses, which provided a stunning contrast to the deep greens of the grounds at Darlington Estate. The bridal party took a stroll together in the vineyard, and Maddi and Brad spent their first few hours as Mr and Mrs laughing and loving, with their closest friends.  As always - Darlington at night was a beautiful sight. With, what I am positive, is Perth's quota of fairy...

Alive on Love

If ever I have heard a romantic tale - it is the one of Kiera and Jake... no, I am not talking about their chance meeting in a nightclub, with Jake sporting a mullet that could put the 1987 Ellen DeGeneres to shame... I am talking about them loving each other so hard - they have survived. Both as individuals, and as a couple... they have loved through the odds. And with the kind of love that is strong enough to endure - anyway, still, despite - you know you're onto something special. These two lovers tied the knot at Council House, and even shared the ring tradition, with their gorgeous daughter.  Family and friends then celebrated on the river,...

The Fast Lane

These guys know how to party.  They also all (bride not included!) seem to know how to grow a stellar beard... but that's besides the point.  Thanks to the lovely Leanne at Barrett Lane, Tegan and Luke tied the knot in style, surrounded by laughter, loud engines, long beards, stunning ink, storm clouds, and a whole lot of love. With that kind of combination, how could this NOT be the one heck of a day?! This venue is one of my favourites, and it didn't disappoint - putting on a beautiful show, as the storm clouds danced around the sky. The images from the day are nothing short of breath-taking, despites Tegan's best efforts to throw me some intense duck,...

Rising in Love

When I met with these two lovebirds before their big day, I knew that we were going to be on the same page... because the day for them, was about family, friends, laughter, and love... not getting the 'perfect' photo-op. And so laugh, love, and celebrate with their loved ones, they did - and what do you know? The perfect memories captured in time happened anyway... because those moments - the real ones - they are the perfect moments. These two tied the knot at the picturesque Darlington Estate, they took a romantic stroll in the vineyard, and were filled to the brim with a little lovin' for every single second of it! A special mention has to go out...

Rain, Wind, and a little bit of Lovin'

When I woke up on the morning of Natalie and Ashley's wedding, I peeked outside and fell in love with the sky. Storm clouds, rain drops, and wind gusts. A lot of people dread this kind of weather on their big day, but I LOVE it - because it makes for some absolutely AMAZING photographic moments! Natalie and Ashley had a sunset ceremony, with a reveal earlier in the day - it was an absolutely perfect way to start their journey to Mr. and Mrs. With umbrellas in tow, the bridal party, and bride's parents, braved the weather and met in a local park (proof that you don't need giant figs and blue boat houses to create some stunning memories!)....
