Sam and Michael are a lovely couple who created a gorgeous, shabby chic inspired wedding providing plenty of material for their professional photographs. Married in the Secret Garden in the Cottesloe Civic Centre and a Reception at the Ocean Beach Hotel, also in Cottesloe, Sam and Michael had a wonderful bright and fun filled day. There is so much that we have from this wedding, that I am actually going to cut up their day into different posts, covering different aspects of their day.

Sam, a former beautician, ended up doing all the make-up! Truly a unique situation but the results were amazing.  Not only that but among her bridesmaids could also be found her hairdresser, Paige, who created some gorgeous romantic do’s.  Casual and laid back the bridesmaids’ managed to keep the atmosphere calm and fun before the ceremony, providing plenty of bubbly and nosh. Even with having a gorgeous toddler, Alexi, to worry about, Sam was chilled and took the day in her stride.  Wearing a gorgeous gown with the bridesmaid in nude coloured dresses, it was a stunning bridal party to say the least.  A last minute addition of blue nail polish ensured the bride had something blue on, and Sam wore a necklace and earrings set that had been her mother’s on her wedding day, thus covering the something borrowed.

We knew from the moment we met her that Sam would be a gorgeous fun bride, stay stunned for following posts on the rest of her and her groom’s day!

And some more


Melissa and Toby were married on a most gorgeous 31st of March. Our stunning bride chose the Matilday Bay Foreshore for a picturesque wedding ceremony, followed by photos at UWA and a reception at the Matilda Bay Restaurant.

Toby couldn’t stop smiling from the moment we first met him on his wedding day, and with a bride like Melissa it’s not hard to understand why. Beautiful Melissa looked amazing in her gown and it’s easy to see where her gorgeous kids get their looks from. Her lovely daughter,Aleisha, was a fantastic assistant and I can honestly say I have never met a more helpful flowergirl/bridesmaid. she was a joy to photographer and talk to and was truly enjoying this day easily as much as the bridal couple ( she shyly reveled to me that she had been waiting 2 years for this day to come!).

The bridal party was a hoot to work with, and this is probably the first time I could safely say that getting them to stop smiling was the problem ( what a happy problem for a wedding photographer). Michelle and Lee were champs to the end!

Toby and Melissa, you guys were a riot, we were privileged to be your wedding photographers.  It’s easy to see that you guys will have many happy years ahead of you. Congrats!


Aleisha and Scott were married in garden ceremony and progressed to having photos taken at Cottesloe Beach before moving on to their reception held at the Indiana Tea House, Cottesloe, Perth. A beautiful clear day was the perfect backdrop to this couple’s wedding day. The bride looked flawless throughout and the groom looked smitten every step of the way. Congratulations to the lovely duo!


Not even rain could dampen our lovely couple’s enthusiasm on what was a drizzly 8th of October. Ariana and Chad were married in the Hillary’s boat harbour foreshore and had their recpetion at AQWA.

Their photos were taken on the beach, where all involved were slowly (and later quickly) drenched by the persistent drizzle and rain.

Ariana and Chad proved that even when the weather is less than perfect, you can still have great photos, provided your ready to smile and work through it. A silver lining to this little story is that  the rain cleared in the evening which allowed for some stunning jetty shots (rain does wonders to old wood, making it glossy and beautiful) as you can see below.

Congratulations Ariana and Chad!


Angelica and Brett were wed on the 17th Sept 2011, a (mostly) clear and lovely day. They were first married in their local Kingdom Hall before moving on to have pictures at the Cottesloe Civic Centre and a Reception at Villa Pourzand, Cottesloe. A gorgeous couple who just couldn’t take a wrong photo!


Suraya and Greg were married on a beautiful September day, the 10th to be exact, at the picturesque Cottesloe Civic Centre followed by a scrumptious High Tea held in the aptly named Jarrah Hall. Their reception was held at the fabulous Fraser Restaurant in Kings Park. The ceremony was a lovely affair, with vows that included the brides love of shopping (and promise to not torture the groom to much with this) and the grooms love of boating
(and promise to not…am…over indulge this pleasure!). Such a stunning and gorgeous couple, we here at FWP wish them all the best!


Some wonderful pics from Kimberely and Tims Wedding, a beautiful day and a beautiful couple!


Suzie and Matt, married at St. Patrick’s Basilica and Reception at the Red Herring, Fremantle. A Gorgeous Bride groom who had a fantastic and fun wedding.


Breezy, wonderful Geraldton provided the perfect laid back and fun background for this lovely couple’s wedding. Married overlooking the shore and a reception in an olive grove provided us with some gorgeous romantic scenery for their pics!


What does a horse, The Darkness and Pulp Fiction have in common? They were all featured in Mark and Clare’s wedding!
From the moment we met Clare and Mark we knew that their wedding was going to be original, fun and funky. They’re just that awesome. You can expect nothing else when the groom proposed to the bride by writing “Mary me Clare!” on the side of a horse.

The bride, bridesmaid and best woman (hey, there was only room for one ‘best man’ and Mark was him) entered the gorgeous St Hilda’s Chapel in vintage inspired gowns and hair that redefined the term bouffant (Elvira had nothing on the bridesmaid). The couple exited to an acoustic rendition of ‘I believe in a thing called love’ by The Darkness and then started photos on the school grounds, eager to show of their new ‘powerful’ rings (although Captain Planet failed to make an appearance…again, probably because their pure awesomeness was just too intimidating for our green haired hero) before proceeding to the streets of Fremantle. Entering the Moore Street Building for their reception, they began dancing the night away by doing a skilful reenactment of the dance from Pulp Fiction.

It was definitely a blast and we were thrilled to be a part of it!
