Thrilled to have these two gorgeous celebrations shared on a couple of wedding blogs. Original blog posts here: http://www.nicduncan.com/anna-darren-wedding/ and http://www.nicduncan.com/jo-tony-wedding-festival/
Both born and bred in Denmark, Sal and Colin’s families have known each other for a long time…in fact, Colin’s Dad, Tony was the doctor who delivered Sal as a baby! That sense of place and belonging was very much part of their wedding day, especially when we went across the inlet to the old fishing shack to take some photographs. Not only was it where Colin proposed to Sal, but it was where Sal’s Dad proposed to her Mum years earlier
Lisa and Dan’s pre-wedding photo session had turned into a pregnancy portrait session with Lisa by then 6 months pregnant, so it was completely lovely to meet baby Layla for the first time on their wedding day in Denmark, WA recently, and to witness how adored she is by all her extended family. With Lisa’s half sister and Layla as flower girls, and Dan and Lisa’s siblings in the bridal party, it was truly a day celebrating family as well as Lisa and Dan’s marriage.
Nathalie and Sam got married at Pepper & Salt Restaurant at Forest Hill Winery in Denmark. Nat’s dress by Aubrey and Rose, and the bridesmaids’ dresses by A Bridal Affair. Sam’s suit was handmade by a friend in South Africa. Make-up by Tamara of Little Secret, and hair by Michelle of Belle by van Buerle. The flowers were by Zoe and Tracey of Bloomin’ Flowers and the cake by Janine at Albany Cake Designs. Albany Wedding Cars provided the transport for the bridal party. And Silas of Pepper & Salt gets 10/10 not just for the amazing dinner but also for one of the funniest speeches I’ve ever heard at a wedding. Styling by Nat and her Mum Christine, ably assisted by Rachael of Pepper & Salt.
Having photographed Katja and James just a couple of days earlier, I was so looking forward to their wedding. The planets surely aligned for this perfect day! Beautiful locations, beautiful weather and beautiful people. And a relaxing game of beach cricket down amongst the Elephants
The bridal party all got ready at Aiyana Retreat in Denmark, the ceremony at Greens Pool, officiated by Maggie Anderson, and the reception was at Pepper & Salt Restaurant at Forest Hill Winery. Styling and wedding planning by A Southern Affair, flowers by Hot House Flowers, hair by Aviation Blonde and make-up by Little Secret. Live music at the ceremony and reception was played by Heartstrings, and the DJ was Set Apart DJ Services. Wedding cake by Mrs Jones; Katja’s dress by Elizabeth De Varga.
