Abby and Alex

Ceremony was held at UWA Tropical Grove. Surrounded by tropical greenery but eaten alive by mosquitoes. I have never seen a couple being so much in love - they absolutely adore each other.

The Videographers were Forever After. Peter and Alicia were fantastic. Never ending energy those two and I would love to work with them again soon.
Paul Stafford was the DJ for the night. He was a great MC and was in total control of the reception. Thank you Paul!

The reception was held at Tompkins Park. We had views over Perth City. Natasha Roger is the Function coordinator there and she certainly knows how to run a great reception.

Colour theme was Burgundy and Gold and each table was named after a retired cricket player.

Bathroom basket for the Ladies - it certainly came in handy!

Alex the groom gave his bride Abby a gift after his speech. Fireworks for 5 minutes! It was tough to keep it a secret all this time, but was well worth it, seeing her happiness!


Natasja Kremers from NK Photography was the photographer for Abby and Alex's wedding. I love working with her as we always have so much fun together. She is also highly professional and makes everyone feel relaxed. Thank you for the photos!

This is the photo I took of Natasja with HER camera!

Then later she took this one of me!

Genevieve and Ivan

A choir was singing, a string quartet was playing - fit for a beautiful couple.

I had the privilege to work with Rob Watson from Selected Impressions and he was a lot of fun

and handsome too!!!!!

Nautical Theme through out at the South of Perth Yacht Club.

The food was fabulous and the Staff was so much fun to work with. Thank you Colin and Steve!

The cake was real and made by Kakes by Karen and I missed out on a piece. The figurines look just like the couple.

Charlotte and Mark

Yesterday Charlotte and Mark tied the knot at Joondalup Golf Resort. We had so much rain in the past 12 hours that we thought we had to revert to Plan B, but the sun came out to give the couple their time to get married.

Flowers by Ronnie from Daisy Lane. Hair and Make-up by Total Brides.

Ceremony was conducted by Vicki Sheppard, a Celebrant who has so much passion for her job. She makes everyone smile!

Of course the bridal party got to ride on those to have their photos taken. How much fun is that!

Dessert Buffet

The DJ for the night was Michael from The Wedding Singer & DJ Services

Thank you Joondalup Resort for your hospitality - You always make me feel so welcome!

Damian and Charlotte

Damian, my president from Toastmasters got married. They had a small intimate wedding - it was their perfect day. Charlotte's bouquet was entirely made out of silk flowers. Ronnie from Daisy Lane did a wonderful job again. I love the colours!

Seating Charts

Seating Charts are often overlooked by the bride and groom, but it is part of an important element to make the evening flow in harmony.

When guests arrive at the reception venue, they like to know where they will sit.
I see it all the time that the ladies would love to find their allocated seat in order to free their hands from their handbag and jacket/shawl.
Now they have their hands free to enjoy their pre-dinner drinks or just mingle with the other guests.

Some reception venues offer you this service by providing you with a basic seating chart, but why not carry through your theme with your seating chart?

Here are some charts I have made for my clients. By all means I am no expert, but at least they match the bride and grooms theme.

This one was made by Alannah Rose (such a talented Lady!)
