With their two kids in-tow, Londoners Lianna and Rowan flew home to Perth to throw a fun warehouse wedding that maximised catch up opportunities with friends and family. The pair planned the day remotely, entrusting Butcher Baker Stylist Creator to pull their ‘big party’ vision together.

“As we were flying back from London and only had a short time to see all our family and friends we wanted our wedding to be a party. We worked with Jess (Butcher Baker Stylist) as our stylist and wanted something modern and fresh. We wanted to just enjoy the time with our family and friends and wanted to make sure our kids and our guests kids were catered for as well as the adults.”

Saving on travel time meant maximising catch-up time, so the ceremony and reception were held at the same venue – creative industrial space, Locally Crafted. Lianna explains “We wanted to keep the ceremony casual but still meaningful. We didn’t write our own vows but our amazing celebrant Kirk Goodsell helped us find some that were perfectly us.”

A cocktail reception with loads of delicious roaming dishes by Ultimo Catering and Events allowed for plenty of mingling with guests. “We wanted to spend as much time partying with everyone as possible,” Lianna explains. “Jess helped us style a modern, clean looking space, with heaps of greenery and flowers. What she styled blew our minds, there were so many details that we loved – the bar with a neon light with our initials, the leafy green triangles hanging from the ceiling and the amazing flowers inside clear bar tables.”

Lianna and Rowan opted for a first look with some gorgeous portraits by Flossy Photography, including plenty of treasured snaps of the couple’s kids. The pair were delighted with their photographs and their photographer, telling us “Flossy was amazing! She made us feel so comfortable and the photos were incredible, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Absolute superwoman.”

Lianna wore a bohemian lace dress by Romanian label Divine Atelier. “I didn’t have a set style I was going for, though something comfortable and I guess a little boho. I always thought I would get a full on lace dress, but I absolutely loved this dress. The back is amazing!”
