This weekend we spent a wet and windy winter's day with Aimee and Russell to celebrate their wedding. If you're going to get married in winter, Caves House is a great choice of venue with it's cosy fires and art deco heritage architecture, and it was the perfect place to shelter from the rain before we made the most of the gorgeous grounds when the sun peeked out (even just for a brief time).
The styling of the day was simple vintage with lots of handmade touches. The ladies had been busy the night before the wedding creating their gorgeous protea bouquets, and Aimee's dad had spent months growing the centrepieces which sat on top of lace mats crocheted by Aimee, little touches that personalised the reception in the Yallingup room. The venue looked classy and elegant, just as Aimee had planned.
Our blushing bride looked lovely in her Lost in Paris lace dress, which was sourced from recycled fabrics! The dress had a uniquely pretty pattern , including some gorgeous "wings" in the back. Aimee made little Maddison's super cute flower girl dress herself, and the bridesmaids outfits suited the style of the day perfectly too. The awesome Jenna at Belle Couture for Hair & Makeup finished off the ladies' look with super pretty, natural makeup, while the boys looked effortlessly dapper in their suits.
Thanks for a lovely day, we were honoured to be there to capture it for you - enjoy your beautiful memories!
