Sonja and John met 3 years ago and on a romantic picnic on their farm John popped the question. Of course Sonja said yes!

Mr & Mrs Seabrook WeddingpintopinterestThe pair chose not to see each other on the eve of their wedding and instead wait until the ceremony on their special day at a small church nearby the family farm, where John had been christened as a baby.

After fitting what felt like a hundred dresses Sonja finally found “the one” she fell in love but finding out she was pregnant with twins meant the dress needed to be reconsidered. Fitting a few more she eventually found the dress that would become her dream wedding dress.  Although this was not without it’s own dramas, as the day approached the bump grew, big but thanks to the ladies at Pearl’s they made sure the dress fitted Sonja’s bump.

The day was full of love and laughter, young and old all sharing in their special day.

The bride and groom celebrated with friends and family at the farm, where they both enjoyed their reception in the shearing shed complete with catering by Caviar Catering.

A couple of suggestions from the Bride would be to make sure you have your phot0 list prepared ahead of time, ensuring everyone is aware of their commitments.  Also, don’t sweat the small stuff and try not to get overwhelmed, the guests won’t know what you have planned so it doesn’t quite come off the way you wanted it then don’t stress.

Love is not about how much you say “I love you”, but how much you can prove it’s true.

During the reception John and Sonja decided to share the gender of their twins with everyone in attendance.  One girl and one boy, one of each, what a joyous outcome.

Alyssa and Dean met through mutual friends.  At the time Alyssa was dating Deans good friend from school and Dean was seeing a girl Alyssa befriended.  Their relationships ended and 5 years later they went out for coffee……the rest they say is history.

003pintopinterest

Alyssa found “her” dress at Hobnob Boutique after shopping all day at several other Bridal Shops.  When she saw it she knew it was the one.

019pintopinterest

In his own unique style and after two failed attempts (one resulting in a trip to the Emergency room) Dean proposed to Alyssa ironically by writing on a coffee cup!

You can’t control the weather and when the rain began to fall, some plans for their special day needed to change.  Alyssa’s advice…..”bring an umbrella and a dress change”.

047pintopinterest

Breaking with tradition Alyssa and Dean chose to see each other before the ceremony and reception at Laurelville Manor in York, Western Australia.

On a rainy July day they said I do and celebrated with family and friends under the canopy of beautifully adorned marquee, enjoying a delicious cocktail/canapé entree, buffet dinner and dessert.

Love and Marriage are like walking in the rain……together!

The Bride and Groom stuck with some traditions and their first dance as husband and wife was to  “Beneath your Beautiful” – Labyrinth.

132pintopinterest156pintopinterest

Alyssa’s only other piece of advice would be…..”When planning your wedding be sure to compromise with your future husband and make decisions based on what you want rather than trying to please everyone!” and “Be organised”.

On 22nd April, Roxie and Campbell said “I do” at Faversham House in York followed by a fairytale reception on their block facing Mt Bakewell with a pop-up garden and marquee.

_DSC9056pintopinterest

After four years together, a romantic dinner at the newly re-built Guildford Hotel followed by a visit to San Churro’s (where Roxie ate herself into a chocolate coma), Campbell took her to a favourite lookout over Perth to propose.  Once there, Roxie sat down on a rock and refused to move due to her overindulgences and high heels.  Pop the question he did surrounded by quite the crowd who were also enjoying the view.

_DSC9161pintopinterest_DSC9175pintopinterest

With no compromises Roxie and Campbell shared their special day with family and favourite friends and loved every minute.

It was perfect beyond their expectations.  If the bride was to offer any advice it would be “to plan your day,  pick your bridal party for who you want to spend the day with and those that will complete the day and not people who you are expected to have in your bridal party, they can make or break your day (Mine made the day).” – Great advice.

DSC_8023pintopinterestDSC_8063pintopinterest

After trying on just two dresses with one of her bridesmaids, Roxie knew that she had found “the one”.  Nothing was going to compare to this stunning lace gown from Tuscany Bridal so the search was over.

“May your life together be full of love and your love be full of life”

Once the formalities of the day were over, Roxie and Campbell, celebrated on their block under the stars, complete with a 1959 Baravan from Charlie and Collette, a stunning addition to a gorgeous reception.

    Thank you so much, beautiful memories 🙂

Theresa and Michael’s wedding was a family affair with the couple making many of the arrangements for their special day.

_DSC8451pintopinterest

Michael proposed the traditional way with ring in hand and on bended knee.  High on a hill overlooking a familiar yet special place to them both, the family farm.

_DSC8602pintopinterest

_DSC8665pintopinterest_DSC8715pintopinterest

After being together for 6 years and 9 days (according to Theresa) the bride and groom decided to start their day together, the way they intend to start every day from now on.  Shortly after Michael left to prepare for the amazing day that lay ahead.

DSC_4152pintopinterest

DSC_4537pintopinterest

The couple wanted the day to be laid back, more like a big party to celebrate their love for one another with family and friends.
Theresa knew what she wanted when it came to the details of their wedding and didn’t stop searching until she found exactly what she was after.

DSC_4794pintopinterest

A small piece of advice from the Bride would be to look after yourself in the lead up to the day, eat well, get plenty of sleep and surround yourself with experts in their field as it makes the day that much easier and enjoyable.

After all the formalities were done the bridal party chose to have their photos taken at the family farm and rightly so when their lives are so embedded here.

Sometimes LOVE is just meant to be.

Keeona & Chris first met and dated as teenagers but life took them in different directions and down different paths.  A few years ago, they found their way back to each other after a chance meeting in an airport. Chris proposed on bended knee on a secluded beach at Isle of Pines, New Caledonia and said “I do” at Chapel Farm in the Swan Valley recently.

_dsc3947pintopinterest

Having her daughter and best friend by her side helped Keeona keep calm leading up to the ceremony.

dsc_8532pintopinterest

Keeona’s beautiful tea length, strapless gown from The Gown Gallery in Midland was complemented by the soft pastels of her peaches and cream bouquet from Bloomy’s Florist in Midland.

_dsc4038pintopinterestdsc_8587pintopinterest

Her son Jaxon was by her side too making sure Mum was delivered safely to Chris at the altar.  Keeona commented that this was one of her favourite moments of the day, when she laid eyes on her husband to be along with emotional family and friends.

dsc_8726pintopinterest

If the bride could give one small piece of advice she would recommend being as organised as you can and not leaving anything to the last minute.  The little details like gifts for the guests, seating plan, table decorations were all hand made for the reception, except for the delicious melting moments which came from the Toodyay Bakery.  Keeona drew much her inspiration from Polkadot Bride, kept control of the budget, vendors etc with Hitched and Zazzle took care of her wedding invitations.  Keeona even made up activity bags for the younger guests, which included nieces and nephews to keep them occupied during the speeches.

_dsc4357pintopinterest

After losing some sleep around 3am as a storm rolled in, Keeona and Chris’ wedding day cleared just in time for the ceremony, photos and reception.

_dsc4734pintopinterest

Incorporating both Chris’ and her tastes into the day was important to the Bride, even if they were a little out of the ordinary, making them work was half the fun.

_dsc4988pintopinterest

With the Wedding party photos at Bells Rapids just as the sun set, it was a perfect time for everyone to relax and enjoy some canapes and drinks (and a few laughs).  Going with the flow was the order of the day and I think this fun bridal party achieved just that.

_dsc5090pintopinterest

Mr and Mrs Allert, congratulations on once again finding love with each other and entrusting your special day to me.  It was a joy! Enjoy your slideshow below.

Adam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}

Adam proposed to Bec whilst on holiday in Bali and after a romantic dinner for two and a stunning sunset over the ocean he popped the question on bended knee.

Adam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}pintopinterest

Becs favorite moment was arriving at the venue and seeing Adam standing at the altar. She felt excited and nervous for what was about to happen.

Adams favorite part of the day was finally getting to see Bec walk down the aisle at Mulberry on Swan with her Mum and Dad, after all the anticipation and build up of the day.

Adam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}pintopinterest

The planning of a wedding together can be stressful but exciting at the same time, choosing styles, colours and music and in the lead there can be mixed emotions of all those decisions coming together all on one day.

Adam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}pintopinterest

A small piece of advice from Bec would be to have as much organised in advance that you can and don’t sweat the small things (too much), the guests are surprised by it all so they won’t know what they missed if it doesn’t quite get done the way you planned.  Bec used Pinterest as her main inspiration and ideas about how they could personalise details so that they were there own.

Having previously had an engagement photo session, it helped both Bec and Adam know what to expect when it came to their big day, relaxing with the bridal party in Guildford with a few drinks and laughs courtesy of their fun friends.

Bec’s stunning strapless lace gown with small train suited her perfectly but wasn’t the first dress she tried on.  After a few days of stressful searching and being greeted by Dion for Brides lovely attentive staff she tried “it” on and instantly tears welled up in her eyes and she knew it was “the one”.  Her Mother and Bridesmaids concurred!

Once back at Mulberry on Swan and just a couple more photos on the lawn out the front the Bridal Party couldn’t wait to get inside and celebrate with their families and guests.  They were both now relaxed in the knowledge that the party was about to begin.

Adam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}pintopinterestAdam & Bec – {SWAN VALLEY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER}pintopinterest

Mulberry on Swan‘s attention to detail and friendly staff helped make their special day all that more special.  From the “roaming” canapes followed by a sit down main course and wedding cake for dessert the reception was one to remember for a long time.

A memorable part of their special day for both of them was the start of the dancing at the reception and after they performed their first dance to “I won’t give up” by Jason Mraz, the lights went down and the DJ started. The dancefloor flooded with guests announcing the beginning of a great night.

What a beautiful day to share with you both.

Family Farm Photos

Stacey, Hayden, Mia and Lexi were so much fun to photograph.  The girls warmed up slowly like most children do but by the end we were all in fits of laughter.

One of the most important decisions to make when having your family photo session is location!

Choosing a meaningful place like the family farm is a no brainer to me.  This gorgeous family will always treasure these photos knowing they are in their own environment, where they are all comfortable and relaxed.

In years to come they will be able to look back and not only see how much their girls have grown but connect with their surroundings immediately, because it’s where they live, everyday.
