Emily & Chris were married in March at the beautiful Wise Winery in the Margaret River Wine region. Chris is originally from New Zealand, they live and work in Karratha, and planned a wedding where all the guests arrived from one corner or another from Australia or New Zealand. It was a pretty amazing day and night!
Jaye and Jake were married at Cable Beach at the end of May this year. Jaye is from Broome and they chose to hold the wedding in the Marquee in front of the Sunset Bar at Cable Beach Resort with prime position overlooking the sand, water and the beautiful setting that is known the world over.
I had never been to Broome and relished the opportunity to soak up the heat (I think I must be part reptile) and was struck by the striking colours of Broome as well as the smell which can only be described as Frangapani mixed with salt air. I also got to work with Derek from Urban Light for the first time, and I cannot wait to see the cinematic wedding film of their wedding that he creates.
Jaye got ready in her family home, while Jake took full advantage of the villas at Cable Beach Resort. Their ceremony was held in the gardens at Cable Beach Resort, making full use of the shade in the hot conditions. The bridal party then headed off to the old pearling shed and Gantheaume Point, where Jake had proposed to Jaye, for photos before returning to Cable Beach Resort for the reception on a beautiful balmy Broome night. There was lots of dancing including a dance-off between the girls and boys, girls won, even without the use of silly string!
I love this shot of Jaye walking through the house with the wedding gown with photos of her as a child on the wall (portraits on wall were taken by the amazing Tony Hewitt)
Megan & James met through work at a Melbourne Cup Day function amd five years later on the eve of their Melbourne Cup anniversary, James pulled out a ring at the top of gorges of the Murchison river while they were on holiday in Kalbarri and celebrated together at the Kalbarri pub that night.
Megan put lots of time and effort into their wedding and her romantic Pronovias lace wedding dress inspired the vintage feel of the wedding décor. The burlap & lace theme was also used in creating the photobooth backdrop.
Megan & James chose to have a first look in King Street before their ceremony which turned out to be a very smart decision because 2 minutes after family photos finished, the rain came down and it was a mad scramble to get out of the rain and find a suitable photo location out of the rain (thank you again Five Bar for providing a stress free, photo venue and of course drinks & nibbles!)
Big thanks to Jasmin for her second shooting skills!
