Beautiful Spring Wedding at Joondalup Resort- Natasha and Jonathan

Flying all the way over from Tassie for their wedding day meant Natasha and Jonathan had to be super organised in the lead up to make sure all the hurdles had been jumped long before their big day. My hat definitely goes off to them since it is no easy task and the day was absolutely perfect, even the fine spring weather made a very welcome appearance.

The grooms men and friends were in fine form, having a right laugh while they were endeavouring to dress themselves…..and each other. There is nothing like a bit of banter to settle the nerves before they made their way to Joondalup Resort for the ceremony.

It was a pleasure being with Natasha and her gorgeous bridesmaids capturing the calm before the storm of her big day. A few deep breaths and off we go.

Once Natasha came into view wearing her elegant Maggie Sottero gown, the boys settled quickly with Jonathan looking like the cat who got the cream (and rightly so).

The ceremony proceeded full of emotion with the perfect amount of laughs and tears from those close to them. After the ceremony hugs were flowing everywhere, not just for the bride and the groom but spread between the guests showing that heart felt feeling of belonging that weddings can bring.

With everyone in high spirits if was off around the beautiful grounds of Joondalup Resort for some fun times with the bridal party. Great location choice, so many beautiful backdrops without ever having to get in a car and take on the traffic.

Wedding Photography in the Vineyards in the Swan Valley

You really can’t go past the opportunity of having your wedding day in the Swan Valley, one of Perth’s most picturesque treasures any time of the year. The Swan Valley provides such a contrast to everyones busy lives, getting out into the countryside for some quiet time together. It’s no wonder so many bride and grooms choose the vineyards and wineries in Perth and the Swan Valley for their wedding day. There is something incredibly romantic about playing in the rows of vines.

Matthew and Kylie’s beautiful wedding at Kings Park

What a glorious day for Matthew and Kylie’s wedding in Kings Park. It was a perfect day full of laughter and love. Thank-you for inviting Eternity Photography to be a part of your wedding day, it was a complete pleasure.



Personalising your wedding

It is obvious from the first meeting with Shane and Natalie that their wedding was going to be one to remember. Their wedding ceremony was held at the Sunken Gardens in UWA where Shane and family and friends waited, held by the green, warm, forest sounding them, for Natalie to make her glorious entrance. Natalie and Shane made their wedding their own, and they so obviously, thoroughly enjoyed every moment. AQWA was the chosen place for the reception where there were so many opportunities to capture natural, loving glances to help them remember that special feeling between them for years to come.

Mark and Maryanne’s first look at one another at Chapel of St Michael the Archangel in Leederville

This is an absolutely wonderful moment for Mark and Maryanne that we captured for them. Imagine how tense this is, Mark has been waiting at the altar and Maryanne has been walking down the aisle trying her best to not stand on her dress and potentially stack it. There are even a few steps to climb and when you are nervous these simple tasks can need all of your concentration.

This is the moment when Maryanne is standing beside Mark for the first time in the Chapel of St Michael in front of their guests. The expressions on their faces are priceless. I love this photograph because you really get to feel what they are experiencing. For me Maryanne’s face says, “I made it! we made it, this is actually happening!!”

I later had an email from  Maryanne and she pretty much said the very same thing about this moment.Mark&Maryanne_182

How to set up your outdoor wedding ceremony with the best light

You need to choose a fantastic location for your outdoor wedding ceremony. Once you have that organised you also need to consider where exactly will you be positioned. If you get this wrong you could end up with patchy light running across you faces. You could also have the situation where one of the bride and groom is in direct sunlight whilst the other is in the shade. All of these things are easily avoided. Here is how you do it.

  1. Visit the location you have chosen at the same time as your ceremony
  2. Look for some nice areas of shade, there might be one big tree or several trees. You might see that at a certain tim the light has vanished behind a tree or shrubs.
  3. Stand in the positions that you think look good and see if any light is on your faces. If it is a patchy mixture of sunlight and shade then look for a better spot. If it is a nice solid area of shade then fantastic go with that.
  4. Be careful that the light is not shaded on your faces but full sun on your bodies. Full sun on your wedding dress is not good at all.
  5. If there is no shade at all and you love the location you can position yourselves with your backs to the sun and thus shading your faces. Or you could look at hiring some shade.

Why I love this photograph of Mark and Maryanne

bride getting ready photograph before her wedding at Chapel of St Michael the Archangel in Leederville

I love this photograph of Maryanne getting ready at her house. This is a really interesting time on the wedding day. As a photographer arriving at the brides house, you really have no clue what you could be happening. Is it a tad tense? Or is everything so relaxed it takes a while to get your head around how chilled out everyone is. Whatever the situation may be, we have been there before and know how to help you.

At Maryanne’s house everything is nice and relaxed while the hair and make up is happening. This photograph has a lovely mood to it. I love the silhouetted shapes and even little details that you can make out like the make up brush in the foreground and the hair dryer in the background. Our photographer has reduced colour and light to leave you with shapes that make you think about the movement and skill involved. The hair and make up team have amazing skills to come in at the crack of dawn and just go for it, helping lots of beautiful people look even more gorgeous.

Photographs like this make you think about what it was like to be there in Maryanne’s house, hours away from her wedding in Leederville. This style of photography is all about telling little stories. When you have a collection of this style of photography you have an amazing gift that you can enjoy forever.

Pretty cool

Why I love this photograph of Alan and Kate at Aravina Estate

I love the expressions on Alan and Kate’s faces as they walk through the vineyards at Aravina Estate in Yallingup. You can see the joy in their faces as they take in the moment. The emotions are running high just after the ceremony and quite often couples are simply relieved that the build up to their ceremony is now over. This is a beautiful moment where they both look so happy together. I love that they are looking in the same direction and the photographer has captured this moment. When you see the sequence of photographs you can understand that this was a spontaneous reaction that was over very quickly. The light running through the vineyards is beautiful and the diagonal line running through the composition gives the photograph a strong design. The magic is in the expressions and Kate and Alan have this memory to enjoy.

How to save a potential disaster with your wedding dress

When your florist delivers your beautiful wedding flowers the stems will be in water to keep them fresh. It is really important to dry the stems before you begin having photographs taken. Even a little bit of moisture will leave a green stain on the front of your wedding dress if the stems touch it. Best thing to do is to ask one of your bridesmaid to get a towel and dab the stems so that they are dry at the ends. How to prevent a disaster with your wedding dress

A fantastic example of wedding photography that tells a story

A series of wedding photographs that piece together to tell a story

Elisha and her family were getting ready before heading off to her ceremony at Sittella Winery in the Swan Valley. Here is a beautiful moment that we captured of Elisha struggling to control her emotions and then her father also having to duck out onto the balcony to stop the tears. Weddings are so beautiful, there are always wonderful moments like this and we are passionate about recording them for our clients. It is the most rewarding feeling to gift someone a collection of genuine memories. I love how the ladies are messing with Dad as he comes back into the room.
