Lani and Cam were quite literally centre stage when they tied the knot at North Perth Town Hall. With a festoon of exposed light bulbs as backdrop, this starry-eyed couple chose their sixth year anniversary to get hitched. Styled by Maisey Collections, raw wooden textures and luscious berry-toned blooms courtesy of Lime Flowers gave the day a rustic feel, captured by Still Love and La Lune Cinema.
It turns out Lauren and Glenn of Still Love had their work cut out for them. The bride and groom are supermodel height, but this ever brilliant photography duo were up for the challenge. “Shooting these guys was a real workout for our calves,” says Lauren, “we gained a whole new appreciation for what photographers who aren’t tall have to work with.”
For some, a five-week European adventure might have been an ideal time to pop the question, but that’s not how Cam rolls. This cheeky groom opted for the unexpected, getting down on one knee on a regular Tuesday night at home. Afterwards, these cool kids kicked back at the Cabin Small Bar for dinner and the Cabin’s cosy ambience ended up being the perfect spot for the reception too.
While the Cabin took care of the catering, a mother’s touch never goes astray. Both Lani’s mum and Cam’s step-mum took to the kitchen to prepare the newlyweds fave desserts – lemon meringue pie for Cam and special pecan pie for Lani. Our mouths are watering just looking at the decadent dessert table!
Lani looked a real sweetheart in her simple white gown by Hobnob Bridal, and was surprised by her own choice of dress. “I never thought I would have worn something so simple,” she says, “It fit like a glove – no alterations necessary.”
Wanting their wedding to be a reflection of two of them, Lani and Cam DIY’ed day and night in the lead up. Lani, her mum and a graphic-designer friend collaborated on the invitations and guests took home recycled-jars filled with all kinds of deliciousness.
Not even a sun shower could rain on the loved-up pair’s parade, and their advice for planning a wedding is simple – “At the end of the day it’s about you and your fiancé making a commitment, not what you wore, the decorations you had or the reception venue you choose. Enjoy every single minute and don’t sweat the small stuff – rain, hail or shine!”
