Simone & Matt’s Moody Fremantle Wedding at PSAS

With moody vibes and red wine by the gallon, Matt and Simone’s Fremantle wedding inadvertently adopted a ‘Game of Thrones’ theme. Through the artistic lens of James Simmons Photography, the couple chose the dramatic and historical St Georges Cathedral to marry in, and Pakenham Street Art Space (PSAS) to party in.

Winter had certainly come, with the couple selecting styling of warm tones and faux fur to keep their guests cosy. Of course, this was alongside booze blankets of red wine and an epic feast with all the trimmings by Herb Faust.

The Wildflower Perth crafted bespoke bouquets and reception details in a black and copper palette, including a floral wreath, photobooth backdrop and plenty of table foliage to set the scene.

As a bit of a back story, this couple met at the Busselton Half Iron Man which was held in the South West of WA. Simone was a spectator and Matt was crazy enough to be a participant –  meaning their first meeting consisted of Matt dressed in a very tight onesie! We suspect that’s going to be a story to tell the grandkids.

How drop dead gorgeous is Simone's intricate, long-sleeved number by Aelkemi? We are slightly obsessed with the gold lace detailing.

Photographer James Simmons was a non-negotiable for this bride. Simone tells us "I didn’t choose the wedding date until I knew James was free. I love his work - it has such a fine art edge to it, yet super personal."

The raw, industrial space of PSAS acted as a blank canvas for the couple’s epic celebration, using copper drapes and foliage to create the moody scene. The bride’s creative flair came out to play, styling the wedding herself with the aid of The Wildflower Perth’s dramatic floral creations.
