Lisa & Anthony’s Urban Elopement in Fremantle WA

I woke up with a bounce in my step.  I couldn’t wait to start photographing Lisa’s and Anthony’s wedding.  It was going to be a small intimate affair which I love and I was getting to travel in a very late model Kombi.  I meet the couple in Fremantle to start  their wedding images…LOVE FREMANTLE!  Impossible to take a bad photo there.  So much to do! 

Anyway, from there we picked up Lisa’s brother and partner to drive to the Perth Marriage Centre in Fitzgerald st, Perth.  A perfect venue for a elegant and super quick ceremony.  Then we bounced to the Rosemont Hotel for a quick drink and photos within the venue, walked the streets for  North Perth to end our journey at the Old Laundry for a cocktail style reception for close family and friends.

Lisa and Anthony selected my 4 hour package- we squeezed h ell of a lot in!   Enjoy there story and images of their day.

Please tell us what you think made your wedding day unique.

With the combination of an old 1960’s restored classic Kombi for the wedding car and then to marry at a house completely renovated for wedding ceremonies built in the early 1900’s sets a unique tone for the day. Followed by a soiree at the Old Laundry which was built in the early 20th century with the old rusty boiler as a feature out the back of the venue created a rustic tone for the day.
