Amanda and Brad | Heathcote & The Esplanade South Perth
Amanda is probably the most organised bride I have come across. I loved it! She had a schedule for everything, but at the same time, was relaxed and went with the flow. I think that is a good plan: be as organised as you can before the day but ON the day, chill, relax, be calm and ENJOY yourselves! :) The colours and design of Brad and Amanda's wedding were just heavenly, which was no surprise given that Amanda herself is a creative person and designer. From her purple getting ready dress, her eyeshadow, the parasols and lanterns, the cake, the lavender, the hydrangeas, the centrepieces, the ties and buttonholes...I was in photo bliss ;)

Love the 'Jimmy's' shot above, taken by my second shooter Shannon. Her mind blows my mind sometimes ;) She also photographed the lovely Bulgari perfume as well as the necklace below.
Amanda's engagement ring was so special. All the rings were handmade by an ethical jeweller on Etsy called Mcfarland designs. The ring below was made using a Zultanite (ethically mined in Turkey) and recycled white gold. The shop on Etsy is here.
Amanda's exquisite dress was made by Sharon Hoey from Caroline Castigliano in London.

Amanda's grandmother gave her this necklace, which in turn, was a gift from her father.
Earring down the cleavage...whoops! lol
Okay she'll probably hate me for putting the above shot in but I can't help it, you have such cute expressions Amanda! ;)
Another fantastic reception design by Elysium Functions. The reception was at the Esplanade in South Perth which is where both the bride and groom got ready also, so we stopped by the room on the way to the ceremony to get some lovely clean shots before the guests sat down!

The ceremony was held at one of my favourite spots, Heathcote, in front of the Bluewater Grill restaurant.
Again with the faces...think these two are made for each other much? hehe
Aren't these the cutest little cake toppers?? They are from the Etsy Shop Red Light Studio and you can find them here.
Loved this moment. Shannon managed to get the perfect angle on this passionate embrace! Amanda had just delivered the loveliest speech to her new husband and was on the verge of tears and he raced up and grabbed her and let her cry into his shoulder. Top wedding moment.
