Clare and Viv – 24 November 2007

Clare and Viv were married at the Holy Rosary Church in Nedlands and their reception followed at Viv’s mother’s beautiful home in Salters Point. We did the location shoot at UWA and at the boatshed, I think about 15 other couples had the same thing in mind as there was so many other bridal parties to be seen about the place! I wonder if the 24th November is one of the most popular dates to get married in Perth? The weather was absolutely beautiful during the day and into the evening and as I left Clare and Viv to party on at the reception a was greeted with a big full moon.  It was a perfect day!

Clare’s has excellent taste: a beautiful Collette Dinnigan dress and beautiful earrings!

Love the expressions on Clare and Viv’s faces while they were walking down the aisle. They both look so happy!

On the way to Salters Point, we quickly stopped off at the boatshed for some shots. I really love these two images. They were both shot at f1.4 which created some lovelyyy blurry background. (For all the photo geeks out there, I just purchased the 85mm 1.2 lens! eee!! Lots more shallow depth of field shots to come!)

Love this shot of them running back over Mounts Bay Road to get back to their car.

I had a great time hanging out with both Pearl (Clare’s mum) and little Campbell (Clare’s nephew) on the day. This was a cute little series of them at the reception!

Beaumonde did the catering and they did a awesome job – all the food going out looked (and smelt) so good, even this little guy thought so!
