Claire + Chris | 13.4.19 | Perth Zoo Wedding
What a wonderful wedding day....so much love & happiness between these two beautiful, creative souls. Add in zoo animals, a little bit of Disney, unique & quirky ceremony readings, ukulele serenades and so much more & you have one incredible wedding...it had all of the feels.
Claire & Chris couldn't stop smiling the entire day...I loved how expressive they were and the moment when they saw each other for the first time at either end of the aisle was a definite highlight. There was such a feeling of love in air and surrounding them with all of their families, bridal party and guests embracing them and their day. After saying 'I-do' we captured some beautiful bridal photos at various locations around the Perth Zoo…I loved the lush greenery of the Asian Rainforest and tropical plants in the Orangutan section as a backdrop for the colourful bridesmaid dresses. The African Savannah offered a wonderful contrast, as did the Carousel which we had all to ourselves and was another definite highlight (thanks Katrina & Lauren for driving us around on the fabulous zebra golf carts all afternoon).
A short stroll from the Carousel was the wonderful, private glass walled Marquee where the reception was being held. The bridal party made their entrance and after a beautiful parent dance, the newlyweds had their first dance as husband and wife and what a dance it was....these guys shone! Congrats again Claire & Chris, we loved getting to be a small part of such an incredible celebration of love…the photos really reflect all the joy & happiness between you. Thanks for providing us with so many gorgeous photo opportunities.
(Many thanks to my second shooter Julie van Oosten for her hard work on the day & to the bridal party for just being fabulous).
