Popular Perth Wedding Venues

Often clients will look to book me before even choosing a wedding venue. I would love to let couple lock their wedding date in for wedding photography. Without knowing a venue makes it a little tricky logistics wise.

I may have your wedding date free however I may have a wedding booked the day before or after. Knowing your venue and location ensures logistically I can capture your day.

For example, if a couple have locked in a destination wedding the day before your wedding date, I may not make it back to Perth in time for your wedding.

Couples who haven’t locked a venue in, yet want me to capture their wedding day, often ask me about Perth Wedding Venues.I normally direct them to them to online directories. 

This prompted me to write this blog about the Popular Perth wedding Venues in 2018 as chosen by my couples. These are all real brides and grooms marrying at stunning venues in 2018.
