Exhibitor Testimonial by Rebecca Const from Fox & Rabbit

We recently asked the gorgeous Rebecca Const from Fox & Rabbit to write a little piece about First Comes Love Fair, and how it helped her business when she was just starting out. What she has written has left us with such a warm fuzzy feeling and grinning from ear to ear. It is so wonderful to hear how First Comes Love helped changed the game for her business and create such long lasting friendships. If you are considering exhibiting at First Comes Love Fair (or just want to have a warm fuzzy feeling) then please read on…….

“Soon after launching my business in 2010, First Comes Love made it’s debut. The fair was bought to my attention by my wonderful and terribly talented friend Emma of Milla Makeup. I believe her email said something along the lines of “this fair looks lovely and would suit your business – you need to do this”. And boy was she right! I had never heard of anything like it before. A bridal fair that was boutique, selective, completely up my stylistic alley – and not a satin chair sash in sight.

I can say with confidence that First Comes Love changed the game for my business. In an online world chock-full of limitless wedding options, First Comes Love really thrust us centre stage in the Perth wedding scene. We matched up with so many lovely couples who ‘got me’ and who got the Fox and Rabbit style. Clients who were willing to trust our creative process and listen to our experienced advise.

Not only does the fair rub off on vendors like ourselves; but watching loved up duos drenched in relief, realising that the talented, out-of-the-box, creative services they had been desperately searching for were available to them in one place and IN PERTH is pretty special.

It wasn’t the kind of wedding fair or market stall experience we ever walked away from feeling disheartened, disappointed, upset or like our time, efforts and financial expenses were wasted.

One of the highlights that cannot go unmentioned as a result of pursuing First Comes Love is meeting other likeminded vendors. How refreshing! I’ve made life long friends within the wedding industry. People such as Jessica of The Butcher, The Baker, The Stylist and Creator, Angela of Angela Higgins Photography, Leah and Angela of Studio Bomba, Jappalin of Flower Talk, Mae of Maevana, Kristy of Flights of Fancy by Kristy, Michael and Erin of Micktric Events… the list goes on! These incredibly humble, talented, creative and hardworking bunch – I met them ALL through FCL and have gone on to collaborate with, refer to and build honest friendships with each of them. Some I met as long as 6 years ago and still work with today. I will forever be grateful for this.

Due to the changes in our clientele – wedding fairs don’t have as strong of an impact for our company anymore, however FCL will also hold a special place in my heart as I believe it was one of the major catalyst events that bought about the rapid growth we experienced in our early years. This may not happen for everyone’s business – but it is our story – and I’m personally so thankful to First Comes Love and to the original founders – Leah and Angela – for fostering such a beautiful, unique community of wedding vendors in our small city. The more we glean together, learn from each other, and champion one another; the stronger our mark becomes in the wonderful world of weddings and parties – and the better off our business are for it.”

We thank Rebecca Const from Fox & Rabbit for her beautiful story and feel truly blessed to have been such a big part of her journey xx

Raw Beauty & Simple Elegance

Oh me, oh my……if only I was getting married again, just look at these stunning images by Bronnie Joel.

Bronnie says, “I’m completely in love with the elegant and simple pieces from Lola Varma. The fabrics are so fluid and luxurious to feel and wear and the way they fall and move are just so beautiful and feminine. I hoped to show this with these images. 

I decided to keep it simple. Beautiful Rosie with no makeup, hair or props just focusing on the garments, cool poses and minimal backgrounds.

I think this approach complements the pieces and really shows them individually and together. 

I was trying to take a more raw and natural approach to fashion and bridal photography. The pieces are not your conventional or traditional bridal wear, they are for a modern bride seeking a more uncomplicated and timeless elegance.”

Wowsers, pure elegance and raw beauty all rolled into one, Rosie in all her barefaced gorgeousness and those simply stunning gowns by Lola Varma. We thank Bronnie Joel for sharing these glorious images with us.

Then Comes Marriage: Danielle & Dave

Danielle and Dave met at a festival in Perth. She said “I was with my best friend and a few other girlfriends and Dave was with the boys. A few friends had always said to me that Dave and I would be a good match.” Little did she know that one day they would be wed.

Describing the proposal, Danielle said, “The night we got engaged was a complete surprise! Dave had disappeared and I was wondering where he was. Our dog Maxx came strolling into the lounge room and Dave told me he had bought Maxx a new collar, and asked me to have a look. Because I was feeling unwell, I wasn’t really in the mood to look at a collar and so, I dismissed it. Dave insisted I look at it; I read what was on the collar “Dani will you marry me?” I turned around and Dave was on his knee with a ring. I was in complete shock!”

Their joyful, nuptials took place in South West.  “We wanted our wedding outdoors and down to earth. Fonty’s pool provided the perfect relaxed environment. We did a lot of the decorating ourselves which can be stressful, but it was also very rewarding to see it all come to life. Felice at Mary and Ivor made sure that there were lots of flowers and we also had picnic blankets at our ceremony for people to relax.”

Jeez…..what an absolutely gorgeous wedding, so filled with happiness, fun and laughter. In fact, I don’t think you’ll find another wedding with as many images of the bride and groom belly laughing! You certainly enjoyed your day. We thank this gorgeous twosome for sharing with us and their photographer Ben Yew.

First Comes Love: Pete & Mikki

We are just loving this beautiful engagement styled shoot photographed by Bronnie Joel. Pete is Australian and Mikki is Swedish…..aren’t they both as cute as a button!? Bronnie used a couple who are actually together so the connection and love you see in these images is very real and genuine……swoon!


“I wanted to show what Perth has to offer a couple getting married in terms of beautiful backdrops on their wedding day. I love how in just one small location like Fremantle you can get so many different looks and feels from lush greenery to beautiful architecture to the sun setting over our white beaches. I love the colours of nature and the colours and textures found in the walls and streets of this little town. I tried to keep connecting the style in the shoot back to nature – the blue thistle in Mikki’s hair and the blue wall, the soft pink colour in the bricks and shimmering sand are found in her beautiful gown and the sequin of the bodice and the weeping willow replicates her wavy hair.”

We thank Bronnie Joel for sharing these gorgeous images showcasing the beautiful backdrops on offer in Freo, the many elements of this little town and the wonderfulness of the creative peeps listed below.

Exhibitor callout

We’re so excited! First Comes Love Fair. Sunday the 2nd of October 2016. MosArts in Mosman Park. We’re calling out for clever creative people and companies to be a part of our seventh fair. Would you like to come join?

What is First Comes Love (and then comes marriage)? It is a sweet and sassy fair that likes to shine a light on the event and wedding wonderfulness that is right here in Western Australia. Right under our noses. We are far from a big brash bridal expo, being a more boutique offering. We’re not really into stretch satin chair covers, stretch Hummers or boobie cakes for bucks nights (OK, maybe that last one does sound like fun, but only with butterscotch frosting).

We applaud folks offering a little something different, something creative and something authentic in the world of pledges and parties. Sound like you? Exhibitor information can be found below (takes a moment to load) and you can register online by clicking here.

Sorry, comments are currently closed.

Our longest blog post ever

This is quite possibly our longest blog post ever. But, hey! We make no apologies. Every image to follow is warranted. Every single one. In fact, there was probably 150% more until Angela said to Leah, “ENOUGH!!!”.

Our sixth First Comes Love Fair took place at MosArts on Sunday and it was spectacular. Every year, we cannot possibly imagine how it could be better than before – and then the exhibitors go and do THIS. And these pics barely scratch the surface of all the swoon-worthy goodness that was on show. That is why you need to leave your lounge rooms, folks! And come out to meet in person all of the creative souls in the Westralian wedding and event industries. They’re pretty great.

From the giant-est (we swear that’s a word) of tipis to the floatiest of veils, the sweetest of scented blooms to the tallest towers of cheese, the slinkiest of gowns to the silver-iest (again, that’s got to be a word) of vintage caravans for hire – we recommend you take a thorough gander below and then visit the MosArts 2016 Fair page to find the who’s who.

And if something in particular tickled your fancy, and you’re not sure who the responsible party is, do please leave a comment below and we’ll let you know just who to seek out.

We thank the always incredible Natasja KremersPeggy Saas and Tanya from Jordan Hendy Photography for sharing their images with us. They’re all tops too!

And as for the rest of the pics we mentioned at the top there, guess where you’ll see them all? We recommend you follow @firstcomeslovefair on Instagram.

Ethereal naturalis

Do we ever love it when a crew of creatives get together to combine their goodness, showcase their skills, and work as a team to devise something delicious to help folks see beyond the commonplace?! It is inspirational to be able to peek at what we might see at the weddings and shindigs of our nearest and dearest in the future.

Co-ordinated and art directed by Partaya Event Management, concepted and styled by Gather + Hunt and photographed by Christine Lim Photography – this shoot took place at The Flour Factory. We love that they added to the vastness of natural light in the venue by including a whitewashed table, contemporary white seating, the tallest of tall white candles and floaty white napery. Even more light was added by using reflective surfaces such as crystal-cut glassware, shiny golden flatware and shimmery metallic candleholders – not to mention the feature Edison lighting and little pops of gold-sprayed florals and fruit. And then they contrasted it all with deep, rich burgundies in the florals by Signature Floral Design and a Cointreau-infused dark chocolate mud cake by Verlena Cakes, hand-painted and layered with orange and chocolate ganache.
