Rachel and Matt’s elegant autumn Perth wedding // St Joseph and UWA
Rachel & Matt’s elegant autumn Perth wedding took place in the beautiful St Joseph’s Church in Subiaco, before they headed to UWA to kick off the celebration with their close friends and family.
After having had to postpone their wedding four times (!!!), they were rewarded with the most perfect day, and everything fell perfectly into place. They were able to fly from Melbourne without any drama after fearing a last-minute border closure due to the fast-changing current situation. Moreover, although rain was on the forecast for the whole day, it held off until later in the evening. Finally, they ended up with a smaller guest list than they initially had planned, which only made their day better as they were able to enjoy everyone’s presence.
We headed to the Crown Towers after the ceremony to get a few portraits of the beautiful couple. This was also the perfect occasion for Rachel and Matt and their close family to have a little break in one of the hotel rooms. Wedding days are known to go by in a blur, and when possible, I would highly recommend for the couple to take a bit of time away from all their guests and the craziness of the day.
Rachel and Matt’s autumn Perth wedding took us to the beautiful grounds of UWA. I have had the pleasure to shoot at this location several times over the 2020-2021 wedding season, and it has never let me down. Whether it rains, hails, or shines, UWA has you covered. Like greenery and epic tropical backdrops, but also a fan of heritage buildings? UWA has it all. We went for a little stroll around the Sunken Garden and the Winthrop Hall where we caught the last light of the day.
The reception took place in the most beautiful settings with the Winthrop Hall as an epic backdrop. The night was filled with emotions. There were cry, laughter, hugs and shady dance moves all over the place. A night to remember and a beautiful start to a new life chapter for darling Rachel and Matt.
Rachel and Matt did an amazing job organizing yet another wedding in just a few months, all the whilst being interstate back home in Melbourne.
