Rachel & Pete's St Georges Cathedral Wedding
Friday, 10th of March 2017

 

For every person who doesn’t believe in fate, or destiny, or divine intervention, there is a love story that proves that some things are just meant to be… and Rachel and Pete’s love story is one of them.

 

It was a desire to learn how to sail that had Rachel at the Royal Perth Yacht Club on the day she met Pete. It just so happened that Pete was a member of the yacht club and he was there the day that Rachel decided to venture out on the water.

Helen & Christo's John Forrest National Park Wedding
Wednesday, 1st of March 2017

 

I already knew Helen and Christo loved secluded natural settings, after their coastal engagement shoot at Burns Beach. So when they chose an idyllic bush setting for their wedding, I knew I was going to have plenty of amazing scenes to choose from. It was a warm Perth day, but it was certainly cooler under the shade of the towering gum trees at John Forrest National Park.

Amanda & Luke's Country Engagement
Monday, 21st of November 2016

“Luke took me out for a little getaway at a hotel in the city for my birthday. It was a surprise trip to relax and unwind from work. We spent a few days there so I didn't think anything of it. We went out for the day and when we came back in the evening there was champagne on the table and rose petals all over the bed. I was so blind and oblivious to the situation, I said to Luke “Wow look what the hotel did!” Luke then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.”

Hamish & Samantha's Guildford Engagement
Monday, 18th of July 2016

“We drove to Margaret River for a long weekend. Hamish made a booking at Hay Shed Hill Winery. This is the winery we visited and lunched at on our very first trip as a couple. I was wined and dined and following our lunch, Hamish suggested a walk through the vineyard. The sun was close to setting and the sky was a spectacular orange. As we were walking, he said he had something to ask me. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!! I was utterly surprised and absolutely speechless! I couldn’t manage my words! All I could say was, “Oh my God, this is so weird!” I eventually came back to reality and said a huge, “Yes!”  - Samantha

When Darren proposed to Bianca, it could have been out of a movie! They had been travelling the USA together, visiting the usual tourist attractions including the Empire State Building. They could not miss out on going to the top, despite the long lines and tourists everywhere! After waiting for what felt like an eternity, they finally reached the top. Little did Bianca know that there was more than the view that was worth the wait. As they took in their incredible surroundings, Darren whispered a sweet ‘will you marry me?’ into Bianca’s ear. A definite ‘YES’ came from Bianca’s lips as she embraced her new fiance, a trip she will surely never forget.

Elysian - My Apartment Garden
Monday, 3rd of March 2014

 

Ok confession time. I killed a plant that is apparently unkillable – the ones you get told need minimal care and love. Just water them once a month and stick them in the sun and that’s it!! Well, I followed these careless instructions only to discover my wonderful pot of succulents did infact need more attention than previously mentioned. The saddest part about this little story is that my wonderful bridesmaid, Kylie planted the succulents from my bridal bouquet after my wedding and gave them to me to be cherished forever! What a gigantic fail!

No, the story doesn’t end there, in fact it gets much worse!

A Summery Styled Shoot
Tuesday, 17th of December 2013

It was a few months ago I mentioned to Kaylie (from Kaylie Louise Make Artistry) that we should do a style shoot showcasing her make up skills.

As the day came closer my vision and inspiration for this shoot began to grow, I wanted more amazing people to be involved! I mentioned the concept to a few friends in the bridal industry and asked them if they were in. The response couldn’t have been better!
