Being competitive types, Minh and Kenny couldn’t agree on who would get question-popping rights and came to the mutual decision to scrap the proposal altogether. They married that day in a registry office, and two years later Peggy Saas captured their post-registry wedding celebration at Fremantle’s Moore & Moore, with 50 of their nearest and dearest.
The garden ceremony was held in the eatery’s backyard, with canapés and mains to follow inside the cafe. “Everyone was obsessed with how delicious the food was,” shares Minh. “We loved everything from the pork belly and smoked mushrooms with blue cheese to the braised lamb shoulder and desserts. So yummy!”
The relaxed wedding was abundant with rustic, understated elements and vibrant, native arrangements created by friend and fellow botany student, Hannah Etchells. This wedding was all about the florals, which represented the couple perfectly. “Kenny has recently completed his PhD in plant ecology, so that could explain our obsession for the unique flora of WA!”
Not only did Minh score her dream Vera Wang wedding dress pre-loved, she also discovered that the same design had been worn by Beyonce in one of her music videos!
“We thought our wedding should also be the groom’s time to shine,” says the bride. Kenny did just that, donning a blue 000Jack London suit, floral bow tie from Etsy seller Gloiberry Bowtie.
Photographer Peggy Saas effortlessly captured the day in her typical candid style. “We love Peggy, she made us feel so comfortable and natural,” the couple share.
Oh my cake! Bake You Smile is responsible for this beauty - a chocolate mud cake with a matcha buttercream… um, delicious!
Floral guru Hannah Etchells absolutely rocked the botanic brief, bedazzling guests with her epic floral creations bounding with colour. We love this photo booth backdrop!
