Filip Welna Photography had the privilege of being the wedding photographers for Cari and Dave. The lovely couple were married in the beautiful Laurance Wines in the stunning Margaret River. With blue skies and the sun shining it would have been difficult not to take some amazing photos of these two. We met the bride during her preparations in stunning accommodation that came with a spa bath so tempting that it had to feature in the wedding pics. Cari’s ruffled dress did an admirable job of doubling as bubbles!
The couple said ‘I do’ within the grounds of Laurance Wines with bowers of roses all around and a lake in the background providing a fairytale picturesque setting. This seemed very appropriate since Cari truly looked like a fairytale bride in a gorgeous dress complete with silver and lace bodice and, of course, tiara (Dave had tears in his eyes when he saw here coming down the isle!).
After the ceremony we took our photography to the extended grounds of the winery allowing for shots around a tuscan inspired house and of course rows and rows of vineyards. Then we quickly dashed to the beach, where an obliging surfer allowed us to use their surfboard as a prop!
The reception was beautiful and even allowed for some more stunning shots of the bride in their doorway replete with chandeliers.
Congratulations to a very much in love couple, may all of your future days be as perfect as your wedding day
Francesca and Michael were married at St Pauls’s Anglican Church in Fremantle and had their reception at Freshwater Bay Yacht Club in Peppermint Grove.
Photos were taken in the wild areas of Fremantle, from ramshackle old buildings to fields of gold reflecting our bride’s love of the vintage look.
Don’t these photos just reflect the dreamy, timeless and nostalgic feel that vintage often inspires?
Congrats to a gorgeous couple!
