Katerina & Johnathan

January 16th, 2020|

What a DAY!! A traditional Macedonian celebration in every way. Katerina and Johnathan’s wedding day had everything.

To start the day, family and friends gathered at the family home and the Macedonian cultural traditions began with the customary shaving of the groom.  Jonathan sat calmly in his seat while Katerina’s brother applied the shaving cream. It is believed that in ancient times the groom was so nervous on his wedding day that he could cut himself, so a steady and reliable hand was needed to do the job.
Once the music started there was dancing and drinking in the streets and the celebrations began.

A traditional church service was held at the Macedonian Orthodox Church St Nicola in North Perth. After the service it was time for some family photos and then moving on to some of Perth’s beautiful inner-city photo locations before Katerina & Johnathan made their way to Scarborough Beach and to the Rendezvous Perth Hotel for the reception where the celebrations continued.

Katerina and Johnathan were living and working in Abu Dhabi fro several years, so planning the wedding from overseas was not the easiest with their work load and time differences. Katerina’s parents stepped in and took on the role of wedding planners.  It felt right to choose a venue by the beach with amazing ocean views.
The hotel is located directly across the road from the Scarborough Beach foreshore and on a clear day has uninterrupted views to Rottnest Island.

The Mentelle Ballroom at Rendezvous Hotel Perth has stunning views of the ocean, so it was important to style the room so that the views were not interrupted. Although the bridesmaids were wearing a soft pink gown, the room was styled in a classic white theme with the tropical greenery to compliment the ocean setting.
Katerina chose our elegant white flower towers with a white orchid and green foliage arrangement for the top of the towers. Romantic candle lighting around the base complimented the centrepiece.
The bridal party was made up of 3 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen plus the bride and groom but they chose to have a Sweetheart Bridal Table with just the two of them. That way the bridal party could sit next to their own partners and other guests.

The music, drums, singing and traditional Macedonian dancing continued into the night and it was a wonderful celebration for this gorgeous couple.

Following on from this amazing day, Katerina entered the True Bride Australia “Bride of The Year” competition and she won the December Bride of the Month and will now join all of the other monthly finalists for the 2019 Bride of The Year.

Katerina, we wish you every success and you definitely have our vote!!

Laura & Carl

January 13th, 2020|

Laura and Carl first met in a night club in 2008 and began spending time together.
After spending their first Valentine’s Day together the following year, it was when they realised they had fallen in love.
From that day on a beautiful partnership was formed and after a lengthy  9 years together it was time to put a ring on it!!
Because there were a lot of guests planning to travel out from the U.K. they decided to plan their wedding over a 2 year period.

Matilda Bay Restaurant was their venue of choice as it boasts some of the best river views in Perth.
With a large number of overseas guests coming to the wedding, the tranquil setting of the boats gently rocking in the foreground and
the amazing Perth skyline reflecting in the water, was the perfect backdrop for Laura & Carl to say their “I Do’s”.

A formal reception followed in the Roe Room located on the 1st level at Matilda Bay.
Stunning views looking over Matilda Bay, up to Kings Park and across the river with the night lights of Perth City created the
intimate atmosphere Laura & Carl wanted for their guests to enjoy.

Laura’s dream wedding was always going to be an elegant one oozing with class!
Pale pink was chosen for the colour of the bridesmaids gowns and it was a given that we continued with the colour theme when styling the room.
Attention to detail was they key to bring this all together.
The guest tables were styled with our luxury Crystal Spiral centrepieces topped with a mix of white and soft pink silk flowers.
And the bridal table was a mix of beautiful mirror box flower vases with romantic candle lighting.
From the luxury of crystals on the tables to the pink flip flops on the dance floor for those tied little feet,
the perfect atmosphere was created for this couple’s very special day ❤️
