Ken Lee; Reception Music: Ben Lee

Janke and Mitchell were married at Fremantle Town Hall, followed by a reception at Moore and Moore Cafe in Fremantle, Western Australia on April 19. Janke looked stunning in a custom cap sleeve gown with a scoop neck and lace peplum waist. She donned her hair in a fishtail braid and carried a beautiful bouquet of proteas, roses, and seeded eucalyptus. “I wanted to use proteas as a focus as I am originally from South Africa,” Janke explained. Her ‘maids opted for short sleeve mint and navy beaded dresses and carried bouquets of king proteas and baby’s breath tied together with a long navy ribbon. The groom and his men looked handsome in fitted navy suits and skinny black neck ties. The ceremony took place at the Fremantle Town Hall, which features a stage with bronzed curtains. “We remembered the Fremantle Town Hall – a beautiful old venue in the center of town…making a pretty amazing backdrop for a wedding ceremony,” Janke said of the space. As the pair recessed down the aisle after the knot was tied, friends and family tossed eucalyptus leaves at the newlyweds. A cocktail-style reception followed, which allowed guests to mingle throughout the evening, versus sitting down at a single table for the entire reception. As an alternative to the traditional guest book, Janke and Mitchell asked friends and family to take a photo of themselves and write their name! They enjoyed signature cocktails, Red Bull Vodkas and Pimm’s, as well as a mixture of local and South African cuisine. Various cakes were arranged on a dessert table around the wedding cake for guests to indulge in. Janke suggests not stressing out about the little details. “You don’t need it all, we went without a lot of the trimmings and no on even noticed,” she said. See the full board here.

Lucy and Ryan were married at Seven Day Adventist Church in North Perth, Australia, followed by a reception at Sittella Winery in Swan Valley, on April 27. The bride opted for a casual look with a strapless, flowy gown featuring ruching and layering details. She wore her hair in a relaxed updo under a veil that Lucy and her grandmother handmade together. She carried a bouquet complete with dark red peonies, thistle, and greenery. Her ‘maids wore short, sleeveless, navy blue dresses and carried bouquets featuring white blooms and greenery. The groom donned a navy blue suit and bow tie, while his men wore white button-down shirts with red ties. “Everything was centered around creating a warm atmosphere,” Lucy said. “I have dappled in a bit of interior design so I took on the role of visual design of the ceremony and reception.” The couple exchanged vows in front of 100 guests in a traditional ceremony, with an ivy-covered arch as the backdrop, and featured the bride’s 5-year-old cousin as the flower girl. The guests then moved to the Sittella Winery for food, drinks, and dancing. “We wanted our wedding to be relaxed- a day where we could celebrate the start of the rest of our lives and genuinely enjoy the company of our closest friends and family,” Lucy said. Each table featured a floral centerpiece, with the table number written on a mini chalkboard, and tea towel favors designed by the couple.The reception featured games such as the newlywed shoe game, and a more creative component as well! “Each table had to come up with a poem for the bride and groom- a very hilarious event that included a spectacular impromptu rap form one of the guests,” Lucy said. Guests enjoyed a three-tiered cake adorned with greenery for dessert. Lucy’s advice for engaged couples? “Set aside regular times during the planning to keep your family and brial party in the loop,” she said. “It’s important that everyone is on the same page for the big day.” See the full board here.

Michael Mason; Ceremony Musicians: Katie Jane (Fry), Tom Carson, Brigid Murray; Caterer: Sorella FoodsRentals: Place Settings

Rachael and Amon were married at Good Shepherd Chapel followed by a reception at Fitzroy Town Hall in Melbourne, Australia. Since the bride described herself as a “whimsical and creative,” and the groom described himself as a “traditionalist,” they decided to have a wedding that was both formal and informal. It’s all about compromise, right? Rachael walked down the aisle wearing a custom capped-sleeved wedding gown as her sister-in-law sang, “Fools Rush In.” “I am not a fan of ‘matchy-matchy,'” Rachael said. So, bridesmaids each chose a floral dress they felt suited their style and carried wildflower bouquets. It a was a sight to see all the colors of the rainbow! Amon wore a custom blue Ralph Lauren suit with a black bow tie, while his groomsmen paired their own black suits with Paul Smith shirts. Following the ceremony, the wedding party decorated the historic building’s steps with streamers and posed with balloons. Reception tables featured fruits and vegetables to provide a still-life painting feel. Fun fact: all the tapas-style food was donated to a local mission after the wedding. See the full board here.
