pippa & gray | guildhall fremantle wedding
gosh we love a freo wedding!!!! pip + gray’s guildhall north fremantle day was another favourite for us! and for a few reasons…we had been dying to photograph at guildhall, a venue that just has the best vibe, style & flow for a celebration. photographically it is divine & the surrounds have so many great photo opportunities that you don’t need to leave the block!
another was that pip wore one of my favourite australian wedding gown labels, lola varma. “…LOLA VARMA is minimal bridal wear designed by Courtney Illfield. As a fashion and wedding photographer first, Courtney found that many women didn’t connect with the common sweep of garments, the traditional details, the dated silhouettes. For these individuals—edgy, unbound by convention—she designed a collection of unconventional bridal wear…”
pip + gray decided to have a first look, to settle the nerves then hang out with the wedding party & relax into the celebrations early, and seeing each other for the first time inside the privacy of guildhall was perfect! it was out of the hot & sunny elements of the summer sun & the setting made for gorgeous photos for their intimate time together. after soaking up those love vibes it was across the road to mrs brown bar to join the bridal party for pre ceremony drinks & casual snaps that we adored documenting. another incredible setting that we loved photographing at. this is what we love about freo & awesome planned wedding days!
shooting too early in the height of summer isn’t always ideal for you or us, so having great venues like guildhall & mrs brown bar for the first look made for very happy photographers! it also meant for pip + gray that they only snuck away briefly from the fun on sunset for a few special moments to add to the already gorgeous story we had captured.
an afternoon filled with ceremony joy, celebrations with friends & family, cocktail dining by guildhall’s sister venue propeller (soooo good!) & mingling under the stars that filled the evening. we loved everything about this wedding & we are putting it out to the universe for more lola varma brides & guildhall wedding days! thank you pip + gray, you guys certainly made it awesome x
