A beach wedding in Broome might have been the obvious choice, but this couple opted to forego the coastal feel for a Victorian-era villa, set amid lush tropical gardens. Emma and Jeremy tied the knot at Pinctada McAlpine House and Michelle Troop of Folklore Weddings came along to capture their vintage affair.
“We wanted somebody that captured moments rather than picture perfect airbrushed images,” says Emma of their photographer. “We were instantly drawn to Michelle’s unique style, her love of nature and use of light in her images. The muted tones she tends to shoot make for really moody, beautiful images and that was exactly what we wanted.”
Already full of character, the historic McAlpine House needed little decoration and when paired with Emma’s Grace Kelly inspired Jennifer Gifford gown, there was a definite old world vibe with a rustic Australiana feel thanks to gorg native blooms by Broome Florists and Flowers on Saville. Think red David Austins, pale pink lisianthus, protea, kangaroo paw, amaranthus, hypericum berries and plenty of eucalyptus.
