Oh lawdy! That was fun. We would love to say a hearty thank you to everyone who came out to play at First Comes Love this year. Our shiny new (but actually quite old) venue Perth Town Hall in the City, did not disappoint –her style is described as a combination of “Victorian Free Gothic Style, with strong medieval overtones” and was the perfect spot to showcase such amazing exhibitors of Westralian weddingness. And they sure did bring the awesome. There was an awful lot of gasping in awe and excited clapping of hands as we watched the show come together. Yes, you can research online, but we think nothing beats meeting folks in person and seeing their work up close!
Not only was it a day chock-full of incredible exhibitions by clever creative companies, but there was an abundance of coffee, paella and complimentary nibbles to fill bellies to the brim, whilst pages in the Field Guides to Westralian Wedding Wonderfulness were poured over on the hunt for the perfect pledge or party persons.
Some special shout-outs go to the Kara from Rose and Bud who volunteered to fill our fair entrance beautiful blooms and Wade and Ash from Axon (Synapse Event Lighting) who helped get power and lights out to the most complex of places! Thanks must also go to Colleen and Richard from Perth Town Hall for their help in the run up to the fair and on the day!
Here’s a snapshot of the shindig by Rachel from Rachel Puan Photography. We think the images are beautiful and can’t thank Rachel enough for taking the time to document the day.
We also want to heap fuss and attention on Team FCL who all deserve gold stars and foot massages. We thank our welcome team who graced the front door and helped people find their way around the building – Jacqui and Angel. Our model helpers and runners and carriers of the trains of gorgeous gowns – Natasha and Keana. And our lifter of heavy things (plus lots of other behind the scenes help!)– Aaron.
We thank White Magazine for their continued support of the First Comes Love fairs. Thank you.
