With the help of their family and friends, Emma and Isaac turned the family home into a stunning ceremony venue for their big day.
Enlisting Dad with the run sheet for the wedding, Emma laughs that he didn’t quite know what he was getting into! The bride adding, “His prized ‘man cave’ was turned into a floral studio and was completely overrun!” Those gorgeous florals of course came from the talented Alice from Fleur&Hunt.
When it came to picking a dress, Emma had envisioned a cape-style gown, believing at first that she would have to get one made. It wasn’t until she discovered Perth native, Lola Varma and the stunning, fluid designs did she find her dream frock. “Handcrafted in Italian silk; in (photographer)Danelle’s words, ‘ it was made for a windy day!”
As far as stand out vendors went, the pair agreed Danelle Bohane nailed it when it came to capturing every moment. “Danelle (was) the very first vendor we booked – what an absolute honour it was having her a document our day.”
