It’s not too often that I do 2 weddings in 1 day, but due to a change of wedding date, and 2 very lovely and kind couples I was able to photograph Jutta and Steven’s wedding as well as another earlier on in the day! Jutta and Steven had chosen to have a late afternoon wedding to try and escape the summer heat. Being surrounded by the lush tropical rainforests at Wanneroo Botanic Gardens it was still quite warm but being in the shade certainly helped to take the edge off of the temperature.
Such a lovely couple whom I had met with prior at the venue to walk through and discuss their plans for their wedding day, they both wanted to capture their day and the love shared, but without too much posed or styled photos – opting instead for the ever popular candid and natural documentary styled photography that I love!
Part of the ceremony was focused on Steve’s beautiful writing ability, quite a wordsmith he had crafted an amazing poem for Jutta describing their journey together and his excitement for their future! Such a lovely sentiment that certainly brought forth a few tears!
Following their ceremony, many hugs and kind words from their guests, and a big group photo, the bridal party and myself roamed around the beautiful gardens to get their bridal portraits! Finishing up in their reception marquee to celebrate with their loved ones
Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day, I wish you both all the absolute most happiness together <3
