From the bride… I’m writing this from a remote island in East Indonesia in the middle of nowhere, miles away from my husband after being married for only five weeks. I’m due to come home today and thought this is the perfect opportunity to write this long overdue post.
We only had three months to prep our wedding. We expected nothing and had prepared ourselves for the worst. The only thing we were sure of was that we wanted to be married and that was all that matterd. The most unforgettable moment on the day was when our Kombi wedding car broke down in the middle of the highway and all the bridesmaids and I arrived at the ceremony venue 45 minutes late. Surprisingly the whole scene did not break me at all. I was calm throughout and I knew deep in my heart that I will marry Patrick on this fine day and this was just a small bump on the road. I walked down the aisle to Jack Johnson’s Angel
and I could still remember very dearly all the feelings I had when I walked my way to Patrick. Everyone and everything else was blurry. Patrick’s eyes and smiles were the only things I held on to. It was all very personal and emotional for me. We couldn’t have picked a better reception venue than Little Creatures Brewery as both of us are big fans of their beers. We also love the rustic romantic feeling that the place offers and for Patrick it was a definite long yes as soon as we were shown the way to the open tap bar. Thanks to Tali from Twigged flowers by Tali and Sarah from Heart Strings and Pretty Things who worked beyond their ways to create every single details that I had in mind into a such dreamy day. From my flower crown to each and every table centrepieces to the hanging jars, combined with our DIY items, all these details were put together with love. Every corner I looked somehow spoke of our true personalities. A little tip for all the bride-to-be: during prep period just try and do your best, keep the positive vibe running all the time, be grateful on every small achievement, and remain patient on every trials, in the end, you are marrying the love of your life and that’s what it should only be about.

I’m a lover of all e-sessions, but if I had to choose favorites, it would be those sweet shoots that really give us a sneak peek into who the couple really is. Those breathtaking days spent frolicking around a darling duo’s hot spots, whether it be the cozy cafe they spend their weekends or the beach that made them fall in love with Australia.

From Nicolle Versteeg Photography… Jena and Cole are two beautiful people who are originally from Canada and live in Perth. They have chosen to tie the knot this August back home in Canada. Before doing so, Jena and Cole wanted to capture their life and love for one another in Perth to share with family and friends back home. Jena and Cole came to me to document their love story by integrating locations that are very close to their heart, such as the local quirky café and stunning beach. I very eagerly said yes!
From the Bride-to-Be… Cole and I have been dating for nine years. We met in our hometown of St.Albert, Alberta, Canada through mutual friends. We slowly started going to the same parties and same bars and we really hit it off. He was playing hard to get, but I won him over. Through our early 20’s, Cole took Engineering and I took Nursing at school. We both love our jobs and practice in Perth.
Piccolo’s Corner is the first restaurant we went to in Perth. It is the cutest little cafe and we have so many memories there of yummy breakfasts, long talks and a calming atmosphere. We love to sneak away there and enjoy the garden in the back and take a minute to slow down life in this fast-paced world.
City Beach was the first Beach we went to in Perth. We were driving up oceanic drive and came over the last hill and saw the most beautiful beach in the word with the turquoise water, white sand, and warm sun. We fell in love with Australia in that instant. We wanted to capture that exact feeling that we got when we saw city beach for the first time. We never miss Canada and its cold winters when we have this gorgeous stretch of coastline.

If you look up elegant in the dictionary, I wouldn’t be surprised if Merriam-Webster decided to included this in an updated definition. The bride’s lace gown from Collezione pairs perfectly with the pink roses from Budding Stars and the expansive greenery at the Joondalup Resort. Amelia Claire Fine Art Photography captured every beautiful detail, so make sure to take a peek at the full gallery for more nuptial grandeur.

…Heni and Rowyn’s wedding was so full of sweetness and happiness I could barely contain myself. The look of pure love and adoration on Rowyn’s face as Heni walked down the aisle was unforgettable. They had been friends for many years before they started dating so this celebration was not just between lovers but also between best friends.
Their wedding was filled with classic elegance and beautiful simple details, from the stunning lace dress to the sweet and colorful bouquet. Their ceremony and reception were both held at Joondalup Resort in Perth and both contained an air of sophistication and with the beautiful Australian sun, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.
