Mindarie Marina Wedding | Daphne & Lee

With weddings a tad quiet due to the happenings of the world, we are sitting back blogging all of our past weddings ( trying to catch up on our blogging which tends to slow down in peak wedding season, as editing takes over) We know this will give all loved up couples who may be wedding planning plenty of inspiration into wedding venues, themes, florals, dresses, colour theme as well as showcase some of Perth’s most talented Wedding Vendors.

This wedding is a flash back to May 2019 when Lee and Daphne got hitched at the beautiful Mindarie Marina. Mindarie Marina depicits these lovers perfectly, with Lee being a keen and avid fisherman. Add Daphne’s feminine touches to a seaside wedding venue and their love, marriage and happiness truely represents everything that makes this couple uniquely them.

Lead up to the Wedding

Daphne and Lee booked one of the packages I offer with DJ/MC Gavin from Groovy Entertainment. Our packages gives couples peace of mind knowing that combined we have over 4 decades of Wedding Experience. We know how weddings run and we take the time before hand to get to know you, and what you want for your wedding day.

Lets face it, I’ve been to hundreds of weddings and know how long things take. I’ll be more than happy to guide you as per your wedding day needs.

Now Back to Daphne and Lee’s wedding day.

Grooms Preparations

We absolutely loved the personal touches to this wedding. Groom Lee chose personalised cufflinks for himself and his lads. I wont give them away you have to see them in the images, they fit with the theme of the wedding! We love it when a groom adds his personality into the wedding day.

With our Groom dressed and many laughs had in such a short space of time, I headed off to find Daphne.

Bridal Preparations

Daphne’s preparations took place in the apartments at Mindarie Marina. I remember knocking on the apartment door and being greeted by someone I didnt recognise. OMG it was my beautiful bride Daphne. Her hair was out of this world and that hair piece was amazing! When I realised I was looking at Daphne a sense of emotion flooded over me ( and I am just her wedding photographer, I could imagine what her hubby to be would feel when he saw her)

We captured all the little details of beautiful daphnes preparations and it was time for  Daphne’s beautiful Bridemaids to help her dress in her finishing touches.

With Moments between her Dad and loved ones documented we headed to the Pavillion to await our brides arrival.

The Wedding Ceremony

The beautiful Marina provided a stunning backdrop for these ocean lovers to say I Do.

Candice from Celebrations By Candice  was the beautiful celebrant this couple chose to officially unite them as husband and wife. Candice’s ceremonies are beautiful and warm and reflect the couples personalities perfectly. We loved the touch of the ring box being passed amongst all of the guests. What a way to include all of your loved ones.

With rings exchanged, vows spoken, smiles beaming these lovers shared their first kiss as husband and wife.

We captured the offical signing with the sun glistening over the water and Daphne and Lee walked back up the aisle hand in hand.

Group photo opportunities allow us to capture that one moment in time where all of your loved ones are in the same place at the same time. All it takes is a little organising, a ladder, a few seonds and a whole lot of laughter.

Bridal Party Wedding Photography

We took the oppotrunity to get Daphne and Lee and their crew into their Stretch Kombi from Kool Kombis and headed off on an adventure.

The bridal party session saw  Lee showing off his awesome finger shadow puppet skills – check the photos out! We laughed, we explored, we found the beach and we captured love, ocean and sunset for our beach loving duo.

Before long darkness was setting in and it was time to get this crew back to Mindarie Marina for their wedding reception.

The Wedding Reception

Not all couples want a photographer long into their wedding reception. We will capture the parts of the day most important to you.

It was time to document all of the finer details of Daphne and Lee’s wedding reception. From the personalised cookies, to the wooden name placecards, the menus, the signing book, the love letters we photograph it all.

We photographed their entry and captured a mock cake cut, looks like the real deal! 😉 This captures your beautiful wedding cakes if you dont need us to stay hours into your wedding reception.

Weddings are unique to you. We will capture your day, your way. Whatever your needs, we will do our best to meet them.

If its a beach side themed wedding you are dreaming of, why not check out The Pavilion at Mindarie Marina.

This wedding venue was perfect for lovers Lee and Daphne, it may be perfect for you.
