Alana and Micah's wedding festival down at Donnelly River Holiday Village (aka the best venue in WA), with it's community vibe, food, booze and good times contributed by all of the guests, was one of the most insane nuptial celebrations I've had the pleasure of documenting. Kangaroos, hand-binding ceremonies, garden games, epic DJs, flower children galore, a cool AF venue, with even cooler humans.

cara and joel. falcon, wa.

A laid-back, barefoot, backyard wedding in your own insanely rad renovated home with your closest fam and smoking hot besties (oh, and baby bump in tow). Cara and Joel did all of this and it was cool AF. Let's do it all again please.

 

Cool AF
Someone who's just really cool, and there's nothing bad to say about he or she or their wedding because it too was really cool.

So when I first posted about these mega babes Holly and Jarrod that you're about to totally crush on (hard), I said something along the lines of "If I had a book titled 'Cool AF Weddings of Ridiculously Epic Rule Breaking and Genuine Laid Back Awesomeness' these guys would be on the front cover". I've decided since then they would also feature in some of the following items listed in the contents page of said book:

1.  How to get married in the pouring rain and not let it phase you 
2. 'Stick it to the Man (or tradition) 101' and see each other before the ceremony
3. Cool AF attire choices that assist in you looking hot AF (all of the converse, all of the hats and all of the FLARES)
4. You Had Me at Cactus (because cactus' are life)
5. The Art of Group Hugs (and Stalking)
6. How to adjust your dance moves for wet surfaces and still totally kill it

tahlia and brett. a backyard, wa.

When the bride and groom are cool AF, you know the wedding will be a pretty good representation of exactly that. This festive and ridiculously fun backyard wedding brought to you by Tahlia and Brett, featuring a boot load of champagne, epic DF action and some seriously rad tattoos and beards. Oh, and that veil!

cathryn and jonathan. perth, WA.

Yep. A sapphire blue, velvet, long sleeve wedding dress, with a vintage styled hair do and a dark lip to boot.  Best. Ever.
I almost fell over in excitement when this ridiculously epic day was unfolding in front of me. Cathryn and Jonathan were absolute rock stars and we totally took 'old hollywood glamour 'to another level of awesome. 

halinka and danny. donnelly river, wa.

Donnelly River. Literally BEST LOCATION IN WA, EVER. I'm like 99% sure. Add to that a super kick ass team of vendors and the ridiculously awesome Bride and Groom a.k.a creators of one of the coolest, culturally different weddings I'm yet to witness!

The best part was probably when the Best Man bribed the Maid of Honour with a Husband-to-be/Singing slave with entourage, and won his Bride-to-be with his dashing looks and personalised lyrics. "Give me my Wife!" He totally got his Wife. It was epic. And here it is. Kind of long, but what good story isn't.

Some of the vendor goodness.

Flower crowns. Elvi Design dress. All white bridesmaids. The Flower Run blooms. Spunky toddler.

All so very splendid, but for me, Sam and Tim really take the cake. How cool and in totally love are they?!
