Mark and Candice’s Swanbourne wedding day was one to remember.
Their gorgeous day started with the girls getting ready at Ocean Beach Hotel and followed by a beautiful and touching ceremony at Bicton.
Mark and Candice wrote their own wedding vows and it was so touching and personal that the guests were all starting to tear up in their eyes.
After the wedding ceremony, we walked around the park and took some silly pictures around the area, followed by some intimate shots of the couple and the bridal party at the Swanbourne Beach, located just outside the reception venue, the Naked Fig Cafe. The evening progressed with a splendid wedding reception and ended with everyone prancing on the dance floor.
Thank you both Mark and Candice for choosing me as your wedding photographer and these are some of my favs from your wedding day:
It has been a while since my last pre-wedding shoot and I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Roy and Annie’s pre-wedding shoot in Busselton Jetty and engagement shoot at Laurance Wines in Margaret River back in September 2012.
Besides wedding photography, I have always enjoyed shooting pre-wedding and engagement photography sessions with my bride and groom in preparation for their wedding day. You may ask, why should we take engagement photos? Firstly, it is not just about getting pretty pictures of you both, but it is often the best way for couples who are camera-shy to get to know their wedding photographer and be familiar with each other in front of the camera. Most importantly, you are dedicating a special day for the both of you to have fun and be yourself! An engagement shoot doesn’t have to be full-on and be stressed about – I usually tell my couples that this is the time to take away the stress of wedding planning and work. In fact, you don’t even have to put on makeup or buy a new outfit – just bring your smiles and hearts and let me do the rest 🙂
Nevertheless, there will be more engagement shoots later on this year which I really look forward to shoot, so stay tuned for the updates!
And as usual, here are my some of my favourite photos from Roy and Annie’s pre-wedding and engagement shoot:
In the lush surrounds of Kings Park, Jim Campbell’s remarkable work Scattered Light is, by day, an intriguing canopy of suspended white light bulbs. Yet as the sun goes down it brilliantly morphs into a three-dimensional screen projecting the bustling energy of city life.
Trained in electrical engineering and mathematics, Jim Campbell has achieved worldwide acclaim for his poetic and groundbreaking use of light and electronics.
His homage to the humble light bulb, Scattered Light is an incredible monument to art and science combined. Explore this flickering field of light up close and from afar to discover its play on perception and see how the light bulbs become the pixels that turn this sculpture into a cinematic experience
