French-Inspired Perth Wedding at Lamont’s Bishops House

This couple dreamed of a wedding in the South of France, and instead decided to bring that fabulous French countryside vibe to their very own Perth wedding at the gorgeous Lamonts Bishop’s House. The result? Well, it’s traditional garden wedding perfection. Better than perfection actually. It’s image after image of pure lovely captured by Merge Photography, and it’s all waiting for you here.

From the Bride…On the first day of my new job as accountant I didn’t expect to meet the love of my life. However, fate intervened and seated next to me was a handsome, fun and generous Justin. We shared laughs, stories and dreams and just a few office practical jokes. As time passed, I introduced him to my favourite gourmet foods and love of foreign films and he shared with me his passion for sport and coffee.

Our love for each other truly showed after Justin was injured playing American Football. He suffered a broken ankle amongst other injuries requiring him to be put back together with bolts and screws like the bionic man. My project management skills kicked in as I managed specialist appointments and daily hospital visits bringing Justin his much needed caffeine fix. On the way home from his release from hospital, Justin together with his brother James detoured to the jeweller to chose an engagement ring and soon after a surprise proposal was in the planning.
Fast forward 10 months and we are so excited to share the photos from our wedding day with you.

Our French inspired wedding came about after we first visited Lamont’s Bishops House, Perth, we had dreamed of a wedding abroad in the French countryside however, whilst standing amongst the beautiful gardens surrounding the venue, it dawned upon us, although we couldn’t take all our family and friends to the South of France, we could certainly bring Provence to them!

Our ceremony was held in the very romantic St Michael the Archangel Chapel in West Leederville. We decorated the church with hints of lavender and ivory to represent the breathtaking Lavender fields of Provence and Poppy’s Flowers framed the alter with two urns filled with champagne roses and olive branches which were sourced from the olive trees growing at my family home.

I remember the first steps I took down the aisle, so proud and excited to be wearing my delicate lace sleeved wedding dress designed by Donna Tobin. It fulfilled all my dreams!. Immediately focusing on my groom at the end of the aisle, neither of us could wipe the smile from our faces. After our ceremony we travelled to our reception venue where we would hold our location photos in the surrounds of Lamont’s Bishops House. Whilst we captured a few priceless shots, our guests commenced pre dinner drinks in the rose garden. Our love of cheese inspired our French cheese tasting table for our pre dinner drinks where guests helped themselves to a feast of soft creamy French cheese, glace fruits, homemade preserves and French baguettes under a urn of a beautiful ivory roses and olive branches. Champagne with a dash Chambord was offered to all our guests upon arrival as Les Trios Amies, a string quartet, played music from many French greats such as Edith Pilaf.

One of my most vivid memories of our wedding day is when we first drove up the driveway at Lamont’s Bishops House and caught our first glimpse of the reception. Set under the twinkling canopy of fairy lights, our long tables were covered with taupe cloths and were finished with beautiful urns styled by Poppy’s Flowers with persimmons, hydrangeas, roses and olive. Every French detail, all the Mediterranean styling and weekends of DIY projects had come together. It brought tears to my eyes. I owe many thanks to the wonderful Cathrin D’Entremont for all her help and inspiration. One particular detail that holds a special place in my heart is our wedding cake. Countless hours were devoted by my mum to create our wedding cake which she modelled on our wedding stationary. It was beautifully showcased amongst a floral wreath around the cake table designed by Poppy’s Flowers. It was truly a masterpiece! Since our wedding day, we have had so much fun reading over the vintage French travel postcards which our guests wrote messages on and posted to us at the reception. It is certainly a day we will cherish forever.

Rustic Perth Wedding

This is one of those weddings that is equal parts crazy fun and crazy beautiful.  The kind of affair where all of your friends and family celebrate late into the night, wishing there were just a few more hours left in the evening, even as their feet hurt from dancing and their voices are lost from singing along too loudly to the music.  In other words, it’s an epic event, all captured beautifully by Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films.  Click play to soak it all in. 

From Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films… This was a once in a lifetime trip that we’ll never forget for two reasons:

Reason #1: The Wedding.  During the months leading up to the wedding, we heard murmurings from Matt and Honni of what to expect and each day it seemed to be getting more and more epic (I usually don’t like using the word epic, but it truly is warranted in this case). From the breathtaking location of Yallingup (a few hours south of Perth), to the reception Tee Pee’s, and even a magical forest, we knew this was going to be unforgettable.

Reason #2: The People.  We were (and still are) absolutely blown away by the amazing warmth and love that came from both the bride and grooms’ close friends and family. We have never felt so welcomed into a group of people so quickly. As cliche as it sounds, the second we landed in Perth we felt like we’d known everyone for years. They welcomed us into their homes, moved out of their bedrooms for us and drove us around town to see all the sites and all their favorite places.

Elegant, Purple-infused Perth Wedding

I can spot Ben Yew‘s images from a mile away. They have this gorgeous feeling about them that I simply can’t put into words. And when he captures a wedding as stunning as this one planned by Cathrin D’Entremont Weddings I become utterly speechless. Perfection doesn’t even cover the images sitting in this gallery, and you can see what I mean right here.

From Cathrin D’Entremont WeddingsJenna and Cuong new that their guests list will exceed 200, so the River Room at the Convention Centre was the perfect place to hold their reception. They chose the colours lavender, silver and white and Jenna wanted 3 dress changes for the actual wedding day so Alvin from Aelkemi created magic.

The couple met for their ‘First Look’ on the same bridge he had proposed. The Church ceremony was very small with only 60 guests and followed immediately by pre-dinner drinks at the Convention Centre. When it was time for the guests to be seated, they walk through a long tunnel all made from draping were we hung some of the couples Engagement photos before they entered the elaborate decorated reception room.

Jenna and Cuong wanted the room their room filled with silk white orchids and crystal chandeliers. Jenna’s first idea in having personal monogrammed glasses as a Bomboniere was quickly changed when all the glasses arrived in pieces by post. Plan B was a dessert buffet for guests to take home mini treats. She was reluctant to do this as she thought that most of her guests do not like sweets. After the dessert table had been opened it was bare within 10 minutes.
Everyone was busy dancing the evening away or had a great time having their photos taken in the photo booth to help fill up Jenna and Chuongs photo book.
