A few photos from yesterday’s gorgeous Spring garden wedding. The ceremony was at the lovely Wanneroo Botanic Gardens and photos (in the sunshine!!!!) at Iluka Beach & Yellagonga Regional Park.. Such a fun, relaxed and happy day.. Malissa & Richard seem just PERFECT for each other, I love the way they made each other so happy, and laughed with (and at) each other so easily.. They supported each other, Malissa even gave Richard a bike as a wedding present!!! And I’m more than a smidge jealous at their honeymoon camper-vanning and cycling around NZ.. And a group of family & friends who were going to make the reception night the MOST fun.. Backyard weddings always are that little bit special, being able to celebrate in the place you’ve made a home together.. What a fabulous start to the season and the biggest of congratulations to these two! xx Mel




Michelle + Saadi had one of my favourite weddings at the Core Cider House (where we are a preferred wedding photographer), and I realised I’d forgotten to blog their pre-wedding shoot at the Bennion St Dog Beach.. It was lovely to be able to do their pre-wedding shoot somewhere different and they ended up using their free 1m canvas with a beach shot which was just lovely.. If you don’t mind the odd dog running thru your shot this is the best place for photos with so many different little nooks and crannies for photos, and even a chance to feature our own special pup if you have one who loves the camera 🙂



I was lucky enough this week to capture the new season collection from the lovely team at Bridal By Aubrey Rose. It was a “dream come true” styled shoot.. The day brought a gentle breeze and the prettiest soft winter sunshine, perfect conditions.. And then there was the gorgeous Maddy and Bethany who not only made the gowns look beautiful, they bravely and happily modelled thru the coldest day in Perth for five years, even at the beach.. Alisha from Bohemian Bloom Designs absolutely “got” the brief, in fact, she made it her own with the most perfect bouquets and flower crowns.. Niomi from @Beauty._.MUA created the ethereal timeless looks on the beautiful Bethany & Maddy. Cakes from the lovely ladies at Cake Love Couture Perth added to the wedding vibe and finished off the look perfectly.. If you are looking for a wedding dress I cannot recommend Karen and her team highly enough, they are absolute gems at finding the most beautiful dresses and the nicest ladies to spend a sunny afternoon with..  xx Mel

Wohoo.. Can’t believe it’s been 12 months since the last gorgeous Swan Valley Wedding Open Day.. Melissa’s Photography will again be at my favourite Swan Valley venue, the stunning Sandalford Wines in their Oak Room. I’ll be sharing that pretty room with a host of fabulous suppliers including Touched By Angels who always style it beyond belief, Mitchell & Dent the famous stationers and letterpress angels, Les Trois Amies WA to seranade us, and Cake Love Couture Perth and Modo Gelato to make me drool :-).. Some of my fave set-ups from last year too, including White Events greenery inspired goodness.. This year my new display will be transformed with foliage and blooms from Bowerbird Flowers..
