So Cal Limos have some of the best selection of limos and classic cars available to hire for your wedding day in Perth.

 

Paul Winzar Photography often find ourselves at the same weddings as So Cal Limos and we really enjoy the professionalism of this company and how beautifully their cars are presented at the weddings they attend. The photographs we take of these cars are stunning and this can be partly attributed to to the care and consideration Pierce and his team place on presenting their vehicles.

 

We asked Perth City Limos a few questions

 

Do you have a favourite photo that Paul Winzar have taken?

There are so many! You take some really great photographs and we have several favourites. We particularly like the shot of the couple in the Rolls Royce at the winery. It gives a feeling of romance and a film like ambience. We also like the shots taken in Kings Street with our Bentley which give a luxury urban feeling.

 

Do you have any favourite locations?

We particularly like Kings Park. It is one of the most popular spots that our customers like to go in Perth. We also like the Swan Valley which has a great diverse range of things to do and see. We regularly have Swan Valley Limo tours and weddings within this region.

 

What do you like about working with Paul Winzar Photography?

It is great to work with someone who is very talented at what they do. You are very good at knowing the important shots to take. Many of our chauffeurs have commented about how well you are able to interpret the scene and position the cars for the best possible picture.

Wills Domain Wedding Katherine & Adam

Katherine and Adam decided to hold their wedding at the beautiful Wills Domain located in the Margaret River region of Western Australia. The ceremony was held inside the Art gallery at Wills Domain, this gave a bit more shade from the summer’s sun. Katherine looked stunning being walked down the aisle by her father and accompanied by her 3 beautiful bridesmaids; I think Adam couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw his beautiful bride walking towards him.

After the ceremony we did some of the formal shots at Wills domain before heading down to the coast near Yallingup to do some more bridal party photos, while down on the beach we were hoping for a spectacular sunset but unfortunately it was not putting on a show for their wedding day. Never less we got some amazing shots with the limited time we had on the coast as we needed to be back at the reception. At the reception a night of fun was had by the guests who enjoyed an amazing 3 coarse meal then followed by the usual dancing and festivities along with the comical photo-booth.

Winter Wedding at Sandalford Winery

Adele and Clinton’s wedding day started with clear skies but that was not to last as a severe weather warning had been issued for the day. Soon after arriving at the bride’s mother’s home to capture the bride in preparation for her ceremony, the skies opened up with rain. Adele was not too concerned with the rain as her ceremony was being held indoors at Christ Church in Claremont. Clinton was amazed watching the Stunning Adele Walk down the aisle in her strapless wedding Gown supplied by Hobnob Bridal. After the ceremony some family photo were taken outside of the church before the rain decided to return so we quickly headed to the Sandalford Winery in the Swan Valley were the couple were having their reception. Upon arriving at Sandalford Winery we were greeted with heavy rain also having a hiccup with one of the limos getting bogged at the winery. Despite these small delays with rain including the Limo drama, things ran a little smoother if you could call more rain smoother; despite all the terrible weather and mishaps the photos from Adele’s and Clinton’s wedding really were so impressive that Adele told me after viewing the images that she was glad it had rained on her wedding day. This wedding is a great example of the photos that can be achieved if rain happens to fall on your day. They say it’s lucky to have rain on your wedding day, after all that rain Adele and Clinton must be the luckiest couple.

The pair wed on Valentine’s Day at the Old Swan brewery in front of 80 guests. Monique look elegant is a strapless A-line ivory gown from Pearls bridal, with delicate beading and a lace –up back.

The location of the Old Swan Brewery allowed for some fun and interesting photo opportunities with a full moon rising over the river made the photos a little more special. For the honeymoon, Monique and Ben spent ten days relaxing in Mauritius, enjoying sight-seeing, great food and stunning beaches.

Caversham House Wedding Kadie and David

 

 

Dave proposed to Kadie while the couple were enjoying a picnic together at Kings Park to celebrate their 3 year anniversary. When it came time to make it official the gardens at Caversham house in the Swan Valley provided the perfect place to hold their wedding ceremony.

Although the wedding day was a hot 42 degrees with bushfires nearby this didn’t hamper the photography that was captured.  Kadie wore a one of a kind Secrettopia gown, made with satin and an exquisitely details lace overlay a jewelled belt positioned beneath her bust delivered the finishing touch to her bridal look. Her bridesmaid dresses were pastel pink in colour, which complemented her bouquet made up of soft peach hues with a pop of green hydrangeas.

Dave chose a blue/grey suit with a cream coloured waistcoat and a matching tie.  The reception was also held at Caversham house inside its Marquee reception room. The space provided a spectacular back drop the photographs, as well as plenty of room for their quests to party and dance the night away. Gorgeous floral centre pieces accentuated the venue’s garden setting as did the three-tier white chocolate mud cake, which featured pastel pink flowers that cascaded down each tier. Overall highlight of the day for Kadie and David was taking a moment together to reflect on their marriage and the beautiful surroundings. Kadie recommends “sitting back and enjoying the day, Remember at some point to have a moment with your husband to take it all in”.

St Mary’s Cathedral wedding Angela and Paul

Angela and Paul’s ceremony was held at the beautiful St Mary’s Cathedral; this is one of the most amazing churches in Perth and is always a favourite place for a church wedding. Afterwards the wedding photos were taken in the grounds of UWA. The reception was held at the UWA club with around 140 guests attending.

The Proposal

Paul proposed on the 31st of August 2013, the last day of winter.  We went to have a “look” at engagement rings expecting it to be difficult to choose one and expecting a wait from order to collection; to our surprise it all fell into place the same day.

History

Our dogs Christian and Jessie brought us together.  We started taking our respective dogs for walks to the park and ended up talking for hours and hours.  Eventually we fell in love.  One day Paul suggested our dogs would be better off if they were together during the day while we are at work… Essentially he stole my dog and we had to move in together after that.

Tips and advice

I used a spreadsheet to stay organised.  I had a sheet for the guest list, one for the reception, appointments, supplier information and a to do list.  It evolved as I went along.  When I needed to send information out I just sent the sheet required rather than the whole document.

Take care of yourself.  Accept help when it is offered to you.  Relax and enjoy the quality time you get to spend with your friends and family for the occasion.  Have fun!

Wildlife Safari organised our wondrous journey to Mauritius, Kenya and Madagascar.

Wedding Photographer: What Happens on the Wedding Day

Planning the day of your wedding and knowing what to do with timings, so that the wedding photographer can deliver beautiful wedding photos, can be a difficult task for the uninitiated. This guide will try to make that a little easier for the bride and groom in their planning for the wedding day. in order to receive the best from your photographer, time needs to be spent beforehand in getting this right so that your wedding photos are not too rushed on your special event. Photos of the bride preparing as well as the groom, ceremony photos and family group photos after the wedding ceremony, along with formal and reception photos need to be considered.

Bride photos I like to spend between 1.5 – 2 hours with the bride and bridesmaids. This is important as this can be a very busy time before the ceremony. More time will give more creative and relaxed images. Family photos can also be done in this time before the ceremony.

Consider booking a hotel room to get ready in, that have a nice sized room to allow for the photographer and bridesmaids and guest to move around freely. An uncluttered space is important also especially if you’re deciding to prepare at home. Large windows create great lighting in photos so a room that has one is optimal.

Grooms men should be dressed in their pants and shirts when the photographer arrives so that the photographers time is utilized efficiently. Groom photos are done normally before the brides.

A list of family photos will help after the wedding ceremony. Allow at least 30 to 45 minutes for family images as this can take up a bit of time.

Also you need to allow for […]

So when it comes to getting your bridal party to the ceremony and reception what will you need for your transport, what is right for you.

Stretch limousines like the Ford LTD are the first thing people think of today as a limousine or bridal car. But today’s wedding cars are far more extravagant in styles to choose from.

Classic wedding cars create a sense of opulence to your wedding; you will feel the excitement, people will stop and stare while being driven around on your wedding day in one of these timeless classics from the past.

Locations for Wedding Photography Perth

Perth is blessed with having beautiful natural scenery, this is beneficial when it comes to choosing a location for your wedding. Most wedding photographers in Perth have knowledge of great spots or ideas when it comes to the day. However most of the top photographers can bring out the best in any location. You may know of some locations that are special to you, these locations you should discuss with your photographer about the suitability, things that need to be considered are the fact of how close is it to your ceremony and reception. Some of the more popular location ideas are listed below.

Kings park wedding photography booking

Swan Valley is another very popular location for wedding photography this area is abundant with wineries. Vineyards look and create great backdrops in photos and really start to shine in the autumn months when the vines start to turn yellow. There are also plenty of fields in the swan valley that have some wonderful flowers during spring time.

Perth Beaches Perth’s entire coastline is lucky enough to have some of the best beaches in Western Australia. Wedding photography on the beach is great but it does get windy at times so you need to consider this. Finding a sheltered location among rocky out crops not only helps to protect you from the wind but also adds a little more interest in your images.

Fremantle has many historic architectural buildings and interesting laneways that make good backdrops. Down by the […]

how many hours do i need / wedding photography

How Many Hours Do You Need a Photographer to be at my wedding?

Most photographers have some short of wedding package that is based on the hours of photography. Many wedding photographers do this as it allows people who only need the ceremony, bridal and group photos afterwards. Things you need to consider so you can estimate how much time you would like. The most popular packages I find are 8 to 12 hours photography as this gives you more moments to capture the fine details of your wedding.

Pre wedding photos of the bride and bridesmaids getting ready for the wedding, I normally like to spend around one and a half hours with the bride and bridesmaids as to capture all the details beforehand. This also allows you to be not too rushed before the ceremony. Also some family photos can be taken at this time. Photos of jewellery and items the bride is wearing are nice touches to photograph and make beautiful details in the wedding album.

Grooms and groomsmen photos do not take as long as the bride’s preparation so these can be done before going to the bride’s house or a second photographer can be sent to capture the guys.

Traveling times need to be taken into account for the journey to the ceremony location and going to photography locations during the day.

Most ceremonies take around 15 to 30 minutes these days, photos of the congratulations afterwards and while people are mingling with the bride and groom can be up to 30 minutes.

Group and family photos can take a while as rounding up people can be sometimes consuming, you may need to leave half an hour for these or more if you have a […]
