Fremantle Small Intimate Sustainable Wed

Wedding photography for intimate love fests & fun folks

You’re getting married. Hooray! Now you’re planning the not-so-big day. You want to do things differently. Small wedding vibes, rather than OTT crazy. Big love but small carbon-footprint. Don’t worry. I get you!

 

Your wedding should be less about putting on a show and more about re-affirming your connection. It’s all about you! 

 

Small weddings are where it’s at – they give you the freedom to plan a day representative of your relationship, personality and values. 

 

You actually get to enjoy the experience, rather than feeling overwhelmed and worrying that your great aunt may offend your mother-in-law. Who wants that?

How to choose your wedding experience

What exactly is a small wedding? There are so many ways to plan a wedding these days.

 

Let’s break it down!
Red Eclectic Elopement Photographer_Pert
Elopement wedding

Elopements are teeny-tiny weddings. Just you and your partner or a handful of family and friends.

  • 10 or fewer people

  • Focused on the couple, not the crowd

  • The wedding lasts less than an hour 

  • No reception – more hangout vibe

Sound like your vibe?

elopement page.

Red Eclectic Small Wedding at Anderson P
Micro
wedding

Small or micro weddings give you the elopement vibe with a dash of party.

  • Fewer than 30 people

  • Small venue or outside

  • Low-key decorations

  • Small gathering rather than traditional reception 

  • Relaxed planning

Sound like you? Keep scrollin'!

Intimate

Intimate weddings take it up a notch. They’re still small and low-key but they allow you to invite more guests.

  • 30-50 people

  • Small venue or outside

  • Big celebration or reception after ceremony

  • A gathering rather than traditional reception 

  • Requires event planning

  • Outsourcing to vendors

Sound like you? Keep scrollin'!

Have you got a bigger event planned? If you're planning an eco-conscious event that involves more than 50 people then I'd love to know more! If I don't feel like I'm the photographer for you, I’ll connect you with a photographer who may be a better match. I'm fully supportive of couples finding their perfect photographer.

Am I the Perth wedding photographer for you?

 

 

Well, I believe wedding photos shouldn't feel forced or fake. The photos going straight to the poolroom are the ones that reflect real life.

 

I have a documentary style of photography centred around play. The best way to describe it is eclectic (hence my name!). I go with the flow, depending on the vibe of my clients. 

 

If you’re hippy and love the bush, then your photos will feel relaxed and natural. If you're urban coffee-addicts who love wandering the streets and looking at art, your photos will feel energetic and playful. I find the beauty in everything and everyone.

 

In short? Your photos will be an extension of you.

 

We’ll be a good fit if:

 

  • You’re a fuss-free couple who loves a laugh

  • You want an intimate wedding 

  • You want chilled vibes on the big day

  • You care about the environment

  • You’re not into outdated traditions

  • You want to be mindful and present on your wedding day

  • You just want to celebrate with your number one

Wedding Photography FAQs

What’s the booking process?

Once you’re happy to go ahead, I ask for a small booking fee to secure the date. The remaining balance will be split into two payments payable before the ceremony.

How soon can we get married?

Soon! Just be mindful that your Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) must be completed with the celebrant at least one month prior to the ceremony day.

 

Can you help us with our wedding plans?

I love helping couples plan a stress-free event. Once you've worked out a rough plan for the day, I help you create a personalised timeline, in person or via phone/video call. I'd also love to connect you with like-minded vendors!

 

How long should we book you for?

Only for the amount of  time you need. I’ll help you create a timeline for a fun and efficient day. Book in for a chat.

 

Do we need to know how many hours we’ll need before booking?

I'm happy to take a booking and work out the duration later.

 

Should we just get married at a registry office?

You could. But you could also create a personalised service somewhere else for just a little extra. Ask me about some of my favourite Perth celebrants and ceremony locations!

Are there any restrictions on ceremony locations? Do we need a permit?

Not necessarily. You only need to apply for a permit if you want exclusive access to a public space or private property. There are so many awesome secret places ideal for small intimate weddings! 

 

Do you do weddings in the South West?

I’m based in Perth but happy to travel down south. It’s an extra charge for locations further than one hour from the CBD.

 

Do you do same-sex or non-binary weddings?

Of course I do! All inclusive here. Love is love.

Are you ok with us bringing our dog to our wedding?

I absolutely LOVE dogs (or other suitable pets!) at weddings! 

 

Can we do it any day or time?

Yes! Within reason, of course. If you want a ceremony at 3am, I might charge you extra for it! As far as photography is concerned, I may suggest different times for better photos but hey it's YOUR day so we'll make any time work!

 

Do we have to wear a white dress? A suit? 

No way! Wear whatever you like. I love couples breaking the rules.

 

Can you arrange other things for the day?

Yes! At an extra cost, I can arrange food, cake, flowers etc. Just ask.

 

Do we need to have a rehearsal?

It depends on the ceremony location and whether you have Friends of Honour joining you. We can suss this out when we chat.

How soon do we get our photos?

I try to get at least one awesome photo to you within 24 hours so you can share your wedding with family and friends. The rest of the gallery will be available within four weeks.

Sound good?
