Hayden from Mandurah and Chelsea from Northam chose the middle ground of Perth to exchange vows. Their wedding was simple but very classy and finished at the beach of Cottesloe at the Indiana Tea Rooms.
We began the day with them at 8:30 at the Monte Clare Apartments in Perth where both Chelsea & Hayden were preparing for their wedding day with family at their side.
Hayden took his other great love to the wedding ceremony in Subiaco, Perth...his bike, while Chelsea arrived in style in the 1958 Buick.
The wedding ceremony was held at the Subiaco Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses and both Hayden and Chelsea memorised their wedding vows so they could be spoken without prompting. I loved the expression on Hayden's face when his father in law handed his beloved daughter over to Hayden to be his wife. These moments are so priceless and a simple picture can tell a thousand words.
With the wedding ceremony over and the formalities complete we headed to Cottesloe Beach to grab some great photos in front of the iconic Indiana Tea Rooms. The Buick became a beautiful prop being a classic shade of blue that matched the perfect blue sky and stunning water of the Indian Ocean.
Chelsea was formally introduced to Hayden's other great love!
The Indiana Tea Rooms is a historic location on Cottesloe Beach and boasts some of the most spectacular architecture and vistas on the WA coastline. We made full use of both for formal wedding portraits.
Hayden & Chelsea choose a lunch time cocktail wedding party and being vegetarians all the food was vegetarian but absolutely delicious! Among family and friends Hayden spoke about their unique partnership not only as husband and wife but best friends. Their abounding love for each other was unmistakable and the celebration continued on the dance floor.
The sun wasn't quite ready to set when we eventually headed out onto the beach to capture some special beach shots but we managed something quite unique thanks to our very gorgeous couple. Thankyou Hayden & Chelsea for allowing us to be part of such a memorable day. You both possess beautiful hearts and we know the future is very bright for you!
