Kristy + Kyle | 15.4.17 | Matilda Bay/UWA Wedding
All of the weddings I photograph are very special for me but this one was a little bit more so as I have known Kristy and her family for over 20 years. It was a pleasure to be a small part of such a significant day in the Keast family's lives (and of course the Maher family also). Kristy & Kyle said their 'I-do's' in a really beautiful ceremony on the Matilda Bay foreshore officiated by the very lovely Candice Bydder, followed by some bridal party creatives around the stunning grounds of UWA.
The day started with Kristy & her girls getting ready at her parents family home in Success (as well as super cute flowergirl, Scarlett), whilst Kyle & the guys were suiting up at The Fraser Suites in the city. Kristy's dropwaist, strapless gown was absolutely stunning and I loved the tiny oval framed photographs attached to her bouquet which was such a meaningful way of keeping those you love but who are no longer with you a little closer on your special day. It was a beautiful moment when Kristy's Dad, Stuart saw her in her wedding dress for the first time....I later had Stuart & Denise get out their own wedding album and captured a few shots of them looking through. It was, after all where everything started!
Kristy & Kyle then 'tied the knot' in front of their family & friends in the sunshine at Matilda Bay with the Swan River making a very picturesque backdrop. With the official part of the day over, we headed across to UWA to take some bridal party formals....love those archways! We also made a quick 5minute stop at the epic Blue Boatshed at Crawley, we had to nudge a few tourists but it was definitely worth it. It was then back in the limo to arrive at the beautifully styled reception at Matilda Bay Restaurant.
Wishing Kristy & Kyle a lifetime of happiness, I hope the images bring back wonderful memories and make you smile for many years to come.
(Special thanks to my second shooter, Julie van Oosten for all her hard work on the day).
