Summer Caversham House Wedding - 25th January 2020Laura & Aaron
Summer Caversham House Wedding
We love a summer Caversham House Wedding. Right on the banks of the river, Caversham House provides the perfect back drop for your summer wedding.
Bride Laura and Aaron chose the Marquee to celebrate their summer wedding reception in style.
As a Perth wedding photographer clients usually find me word of mouth. Laura happened to be looking at my work at the same time chance bought her mum and I together at one of Perth Social spots. I heard Dina, Laura’s mum, proudly talking about her daughters upcoming wedding when I mentioned I was a wedding photographer. We discovered we lived minutes from each other and had a lot to talk about. I had no idea Laura was already looking at my work.
And this is how I became Laura and Aaron’s wedding photographer and mother of the brides friend.
No pressure to perform at all. Hehehe. It seriously was a great honour to spend the day with these beautiful families and capture all of these memories for them that I know will become super sentimental as time goes by.
The Wedding Day
Laura and Aaron’s Summer wedding day turned on the most perfect weather. Not too hot just perfect.
The bride and groom chose a traditional church wedding at St Mary’s Leederville followed by a wedding reception at Caversham House.
The Brides Preparations
Bride Laura grew up In Spearwood. There is something about going to a brides home where she grew up to capture her wedding day preparations.
After knocking on the door I was greeted by an absolutely stunning mother of the bride. Dina looked amazing. She bought a flood of emotions knowing soon she would be seeing her daughter walk down the aisle on her dad’s arm.
The next face I saw was bride Laura, and oh wow! She looked breathtakingly beautiful.
I quickly set about capturing the details and Adon from Iciris Video Productions arrived to capture the magic in video form. Its always a pleasure to work with this husband and wife team.
With the details captured, bridesmaids dressed, it was time for bride Laura to slip into her beautiful Martina Liana designed gown from Tuscany Bridal.
We capture causal candid’s of out brides getting ready. Once our brides are dressed we capture some moments with mothers and fathers of the bride and the brides tribe. its our opportunity to capture the raw and sometimes nervous emotion that is the reality of marriage.
Laura and Aaron chose to include wonderful sentiment to their wedding day. First it included Laura heading to an art work on Spearwood avenue of her grandparents picking potatoes. Spearwood was well known for market gardens with many European settling here to grow vegetables. I will capture any sentiment you wish to include on your wedding day. Just ask!
From here I headed to the church to await Laura’s arrival and say hello to Aaron and his groomsmen.
The Wedding Ceremony Location
You know we do love a traditional Church wedding.
There is something about a modern bride and groom standing at the alter in a beautiful historic church saying their vows that just looks perfect through the lens.
Lets not forget moments like that of Dad John walking his daughter up that long aisle surrounded by loved ones nestled in between the beautiful wooden pews of a church.
Weddings like this keep family tradition and faith alive, passing the faith of generations gone before down to the families current generations.
With Aaron and Laura’s exchange of rings and vows they are announced as husband and wife.
With the marriage certificate signed the newlyweds make their way up the aisle. I love the moment Aaron kisses his bride on her hand. Check out the photos!
Wedding Photography | The Swan Valley
This is where part two of the sentimental touches come in to play for Laura and Aaron’s wedding.
We made a stop to a very special house On Swan Street in Guildford. The house Groom Aaron’s dad grew up in as a child. I know this image will become super sentimental as the years go by. Just remember if you have a sentimental location and want to add it into your wedding day, I will make sure it happens.
The bride and groom had one more request, for a few images in a vineyard. Yes, we made that happen too.
It was then onto Caversham House for some champagne popping or spraying, a bunch of laughter and images in some of Caversham Houses well known Iconic locations.
Time to Party!
It sure was. Just add the energy of Adam Pacan as your MC/DJ and the party well and truely comes alive. Or was it the Sparkulars? Or was it that fact that the groom piggy backed his bride into the reception to an abundance of sparkulars. What combination of winning ways to enter your wedding reception with a bang.
Not long after entry I whisked the newlyweds outside to capture the last of their wedding day light. Here I saw how graceful bride Laura was at dancing and would soon discover during the speeches that Laura has achieved so much in her life. Dancing included!
Night images are my thing. I love capturing a night shot. Why not add more sparkulars to them. Check out the images captured on the limestone steps of Caversham House.
It was back into the reception for speeches, laughter, tears and the couples cake cut. he beautiful cake masterpiece is a creation from Katie at Bridal Select Cakes. Not only do her cakes look and smell amazing, they taste as good as they look.
Adam Pacan invited the Bride and her dad to dance on the dance floor, followed by the couples amazing first dance and then the guests danced some traditional Croation dances. It was amazing.
And just like that it was time for Laura and Aaron to make their grand exit in style via rows of Sparklers timed so perfectly by Adam Pacan.
The perfect end to a perfect wedding!
Hugest congratulations Laura and Aaron.
Love your Perth Wedding Photographer xx
