Sit quietly for a few minutes and picture the wedding of your favourite person — maybe it was your best friend, your sibling, a cousin, or your own wedding…
Think about the happiness that you all experienced that day. Think about the words that the couple spoke to each other as they exchanged vows. Think about the love, the laughter, the joy. Think about the profound effect that day had on their lives and yours.
To celebrate #loveislove Shoshana Kruger asked her beautiful friends Christian & Kevin if they would like to be involved in a styled shoot showcasing some of her favourite Perth vendors and creating an intimate and unique winter wedding.
Shosh tells us, “This photoshoot has been something I had wanted to create for a very long time. I photograph weddings most weekends, and every couple I have had the pleasure of photographing has been amazing. It is a real honour to witness this official part of their growing relationship. However, some of the most incredible couples out there are unable to take this step in their relationship due to Australian law. Here we have two beautiful people who just want to express their love for one another in an official way and are denied that basic human right. Hopefully this will change sooner rather than later, but until then I will endeavour to photograph anyone in love, regardless of gender”.
Her talented team included, Lee from Floral State who created a cascading ceremony installation with a winding aisle for the boys to walk down to share their vows, while holding the most incredible bouquets using unusual florals and foliage. Sarah from Lyndley Mill designed the long table dinner table using matte dinnerware from Winterwares and stationary designed by Emily of Grey Rabbit Design; along with plenty of fig scented black candles and brass details, finished off with textural winter fruits and vegetables. The venue, Guildhall, could not have been more perfect with their teal wall being the backdrop to their dinner setting (catered by Propeller North Fremantle) and ambient rooms that made their portraits super cosy with amazing light throughout the day. Shosh says, “Christian and Kevin are celebrating 15 years together in November this year, so it was amazing to witness them sharing some words about their relationship to each other in a public yet intimate location”.
We thank Shosh and her talented team for sharing this beautiful styled shoot with us. Love is love and we hope that Christian and Kevin are able to express their love for each other in an official way very soon!
