A small but mighty Perth wedding: Featured on Together Journal

Two brides are in a city bar clinking drinks. One bride wears an off-white linen suit, the other bride wears a white fitted dress and veil.

I was super thrilled that Together Journal wanted to feature Channelle and Sarah's Perth small wedding at Old Tower House followed by an incredible celebration with more friends and family at Songbird Bar.

Before you go and read all about their incredible day over at Together Journal, I want to tell you all the things I loved about their elopement & party.

1. They established a wedding dress code

Channelle and Sarah knew how to make a big impact with some simple planning: Stand out in awesome white outfits and ask all your family and friends to wear black. This was so effective!

2. They got ready together

Getting ready together at their room at the Ritz-Carlton Perth meant they could enjoy those excited nerves together. They were lucky that Sarah's Dad owns a vintage car so they were delivered to their wedding in style!

3. They had a small wedding ceremony in Perth

With a small registry style elopement at Old Tower House, they focused on only their closest family and friends to witness their nuptials. Afterwards we got some great family photos with everyone in black it looked so good!

4. We took time to capture some epic portraits in Perth City

After we left family and friends behind, we headed into the City to capture some portraits. We had so much fun with it and then ended it back in their hotel room at the Ritz to jump on the bed with excitement before I left them to have some alone time before they rejoined their guests.

5. They had a relaxed celebration with a big party at a rooftop bar

As the sun was beginning to set, their wider group of family and friends met them at the Songbird Bar which is also at their accommodation, the Ritz-Carlton. It has an amazing elevated view of the City and Swan River, especially at sunset. They had their own private balcony area along with a firepit!

The tops of guests heads can be seen in the forefront with a city scape in the background. The lights of the skyrise buildings are lit up and the sun is setting in the sky.
