Tracy + Albert – Perth Marriage Registry Office / Kings Park Wedding

07/06/2021

Gorgeously romantic courthouse wedding for Tracy and Albert

Like many other couples of 2020, Tracy and Albert had a family wedding planned in Perth with guests due to arrive from overseas. So rather than let the COVID pandemic stop them from tying the knot, the couple wanted to still go ahead with a wedding, but on a smaller scale, and with the ability to live stream the ceremony to loved ones unable to attend.

At the Perth Marriage Registry on 3 November 2020, the couple were joined by Tracy’s parents and Albert’s brother to witness their nuptials and signing of the marriage papers. With Albert’s family in Malaysia, it was important for everyone overseas to be there digitally with everyone – and with today’s technology, no one got to miss out!

It was an early start to the day, meeting the bride and groom in the city for their 9am ceremony and taking some pre-nuptial photos with the gorgeous Swan River setting behind them in the windows. Tracy all pretty in pink and a matching bouquet, Albert standing out in his dark navy blue suit and deep red tie.

Following group photos with the family, it was time for Tracy to change into her sleek and elegant wedding gown and take the arm of her father. Straight to the desk for a brief word with the celebrant, it was only then that the nuptials and exchange of the rings was held.

Both Tracy and Albert beamed with pride, knowing they were officially husband and wife, and also knowing that the live online stream was right there, uninterrupted, where everyone in Malaysia could watch. With the signing of the documents, the newlyweds got a chance to briefly celebrate and get congratulatory hugs and virtual happy wishes before heading out to Kings Park for bridal photos.

Kings Park is a beautiful location for a bride and groom, with its glorious views of Perth city, the Swan River, and other areas with plenty of backdrops. It was the perfect spot for Tracy and Albert, not having to drive very far to get there, and providing pictures to Albert’s family to showcase where the happy couple live and what it looks like.

I’d also taken note that the Jacaranda trees were in full bloom and dropping their flowers at this time of year, so I made sure we took every opportunity to get photos with the tree’s purple colours in the background. Jacarandas in Perth are almost like Japan’s cherry blossoms – they only bloom for a certain amount of time once a year, and to get the trees in wedding photos is a beautiful occurrence.

Nearby, we also made sure to get bridal photos done at the iconic boat shed. This is a popular spot for photos, and despite lots of people making their way to the location, the boardwalk is a very tight squeeze and you can really feel like you’re the only two people in the world. Almost across the street from the boat shed are the Mounts Bay Fig Trees, and we made our way there too for the remainder of the bridal photos to provide even more variety.

From there, the newlyweds took their loved ones for a private luncheon to celebrate.
