We’ve never heard of a brewery having sentimental value, but Fremantle’s Little Creatures Brewery was one of the first places that Shah took Dell when she arrived in Australia, so it was only natural that they chose the craft-beer and cider hall to say ‘I do’. This eclectic couple well and truly amped up the quirk factor and Earthbound Images was there amongst the pineapples and dinosaurs to capture it all.
It’s always been said that a wedding is a great place to meet a potential partner, and Dell and Shah are living proof. They met at Shah’s sister’s wedding in Singapore, where Dell (a friend of his sisters) was living at the time. And while we’re sure these two are just as cute off camera, Alanna and Alex from Earthbound Images definitely captured the magic. “They completely nailed what we wanted to capture from the day,” Dell says, “relaxed candid photos, stunning street backdrops for the posed shots and gorgeous colours.”
An ethically conscious couple, Dell and Shah’s guests dined on hearty vegetarian share plates from a menu thoughtfully put together by Little Creatures. A table of decadent desserts – all vegan of course – tempted guests, and we can guarantee that we would have been first in line for a slice of that Raw Pecan Pie!
Being vegan herself, Dell was on the hunt for a non-silk fabric, and she found it in a simple Carla Zampatti gown. Paired with bright red pumps from Modcloth and a custom-made Olive Farm Designs polka-dot birdcage veil, the delicate Dell was an absolute vision. She wore a stunning bespoke jade bangle from her mum, a modern take on a traditional Chinese wedding gift. Makeup-up artist Jacqui Bradfield dolled Dell up for the big day, even going the extra mile to source cruelty-free products and brushes for this eco-friendly bride.
