From Katie Grant… A wedding is such an intimate and  personal occasion and this private wedding perfectly reflects that! Set in a wild wheat field in the outskirts of Perth, Western Australia, this delicate and small wedding features only the essential personnel; the bride & groom, the officiant, and their two witnesses. Beautiful and lush florals overflow from the bouquet and from the small blanket set for the intimate reception. With an emphasis on pretty florals, unique details and scrumptious nibbles, this wedding takes the cake on a personal affair!

From the Bride… We first met at my office almost three years ago. I had just come back from post-graduate study in London and Matthew had just moved to Jakarta for work. I showed him around Jakarta, introduced him to my family and friends and took him to the hospital (several times) for his upset tummy. In short, it was love at first sight and we are very lucky to have found each other at the right time.

Despite living and working in Jakarta, we decided to have our wedding in Perth (Matthew’s hometown). We are so grateful that our wedding preparation was very smooth. I bought the first wedding dress that I tried on and Matthew’s mum and sister helped us find all the right vendors that created our dream wedding. My parents were very supportive of our decisions and enjoyed seeing all the Indonesian decorations, gifts, sweets and photobooth props that we incorporated into our wedding.

The main motif for our wedding was a traditional Javanese ‘loro blonyo’ statue. ‘Loro blonyo’ roughly translates into ‘The Inseperable Couple’. This statue is still common in many family homes in Indonesia and it represents prosperity, happy marriage and fertility. We incorporated this motif into our invitations, menus, cufflink gifts and even our dance floor.

Our wedding day was warm and happy and filled with laughter. We had over 100 guests from Indonesia who took time off work and traveled a long way to be there. No words can describe how much it meant to us to share our day with our closest family and friends.

People ask me what we would do differently for our wedding day. My answer is nothing – our wedding day was perfect in its own way and we are blessed to have and to hold each other.

From DeRay & Simcoe… The couple decided to hold their wedding back in Matthew’s hometown but Tia had never actually been to a western style wedding while she was planning her own! She spent hours scouring blogs such as Style Me Pretty to find inspiration for her own wedding. They wanted the day to be the coming together of the two different cultures and feature lots of Indonesian design details as well as a traditional Catholic ceremony.

They chose Aquinas College chapel as the ceremony venue as it had sentimental value to Matthew’s family. His father was the principal there when Matthew was a boy so he grew up on the school grounds. The distinctive red brick buildings were a beautiful backdrop for the autumn leaves.

The State Reception Centre in King’s Park was the natural choice for their reception, situated high up in the gum tree canopy with it’s iconic views overlooking the city skyline.

They kept the strong family theme by selecting Matthew’s sister Amanda for the bridesmaid and Tia’s brother Danny as the best man.

Tia’s exquisite lace dress and mantilla veil suited her petite frame perfectly, and Jimmy Choos completed the look. Matthew brought a few quirky touches to the wedding such as his handmade wooden bowtie sourced on a trip to visit his brother in New York.

They had many guests travel to attend the wedding from Indonesia and hired a wedding planner from The Original Wedding Company just to help coordinate them. This ensured the overseas guests had a wonderful time without having to worry about travel on the wedding day etc.

Matthew and Tia were so in love and it was such a pleasure to be part of this unique wedding. They put a lot of care and consideration into making sure their diverse range of guests had a wonderful time on the day.

From Katie GrantWe drew inspiration from the natural, rocky coastline and built the shoot around the natural palette of the shore. The sweetheart table is nestled into the large rock formations where waves crash underneath, creating a beautiful symphony. The table is adorned with light sea blues and sandy golds and the plates are set with each person’s name calligraphed on a translucent capiz shell.

The focal point of this shoot is the bride’s jaw-dropping and gorgeous seashell crown, a fresh and inspiring take on the bohemian floral crown.

Classic Waterside Wedding in Perth

Here at Style Me Pretty we know that weddings should be both beautiful and fun. And this wedding, brought to us by Kirsty Russell Photography is just that. From the bridesmaids’ gorgeous blush dresses to the groomsmen’s surprising super hero outfits, this is definitely a day the couple will never forget. Check out more of the fun in the full gallery here!

From Kirsty RussellIt was so much fun being a part of Sarah & Ray’s beautiful wedding in May this year. Despite having a week of rain prior, we were blessed with a glorious day of sunshine from start to finish. It was the small details throughout their wedding that really made this day all the more unique and special. Ray and his groomsmen had heaps of fun being superheroes in disguise, taking any opportunity to rip their shirts open to expose the themed shirts underneath. The reception had a theme of traveling the world, something special that Sarah & Ray have shared together. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs.! Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Elegant Spring Perth Wedding

My love of pink peonies knows no bounds and when I found this bride felt the same, I sort of felt like kindred spirits. She, along with her charming groom, crafted a day filled with personality, elegance and ease…not to mention killer floral moments by Rebecca Grace. The amazing Mustard Seed Photography captured the pretty and this little taste is only the beginning.

From The Bride… We both had strong ideas about what we wanted for our wedding and we were lucky that our strong ideas complimented each other. Everything we loved about each other and our relationship was reflected in the planning and the end, our wedding day. Jason works in IT, he is organised, focussed and is great at breaking down tasks. I work in health, and am mostly organised and focussed. My fiancé worked hard to keep me on track during this time. He turned our wedding into a work project, creating a card wall, each card with a task and associated contact details.

To combine our love for food and the desire for dinner with a view led us to the idea of a Chinese banquet style reception dinner, but with a relaxed, outdoor feel. Heyder & Shears allowed us to design our own 8 course menu and our event manager Zac was with us every step of the way from suggesting wines to sourcing everything we needed to make our guests feel comfortable. Our marquee had clear walls so our guests could take in the river views from the banks of Matilda Bay Reserve. Once it was dark, the city lit up, creating a lovely romantic feel.

I am so lucky to have had such an involved groom. When Jason saw I really wanted letterpress invitations, he designed exactly what I wanted, including a image of the stuffed toy dog he gave me in the early stages of our relationship with a bouquet of peonies (my favourite flower). The picture of the cute dog would feature on our save the date cards, seating chart and the stickers on our favours. Jason designed our guest book, a coffee table book of our engagement photos. We named tables after restaurants or places where we had shared delicious food, and we framed our menus to give them pride of place at the centre of the tables. We spent weekends filling jars with local raw honey, tying place cards which double as thank you cards on the back.

SMP was my go to blog on all things wedding related. I spent countless hours admiring beautifully weddings while gathering ideas to make our day unique.

We could not have asked for better vendors and our amazing family and friends who travelled from across Australia and Asia to help us celebrate our special day. I would not change a thing, even the rain! Our day was perfect, because of all the wonderful people in our lives who love us so very much.
