We always love a backyard wedding, but throw in a wedding gown lovingly handmade by the mother of the groom and a song written by the groom for his bride, well then you have us swooning! Every sweet detail of Aimee and Nathan’s Perth backyard wedding was captured by CJ Williams Photography.

Having originally booked a golf club for their reception, the couple soon realised that this wasn’t what they wanted. Aimee says, “We wanted our day to be as intimate as possible and 100% unique to us, so we thought what’s better than our own backyard?”

Despite having moved into the house just days before the wedding, Aimee and Nathan made it cosy and welcoming with vintage furniture from Her Handpicked Harvest and a bell tent chill-out zone from Bushwood Bell Tents. Artwork by the groom added a creative and sentimental touch to the decor.

The couple needed a fun and relaxed photographer to suit their style and could not have been happier with CJ Williams. “Carly instantly understood us, our personalities and the direction we wanted to go. She knew we weren’t a couple that liked the norm, so she took that and rolled with it,” they share.

Aimee’s lace V-neck gown was more than just beautiful. She tells us, “My wedding dress is probably the most sentimental item from our wedding that I will cherish forever. Made by Nathan’s mum, it was such an amazing gift for her to design my dress for me. I am a very fussy girl that knows what she wants and at times I think she wanted to pull her hair out but we got there in the end and it was everything I dreamed of and more.”
