Kris & Mila’s beautiful Fremantle wedding

Today I’m sharing the gorgeous stylish wedding of Chris & Mila.

Sometimes things have a way of working out for the better … let me explain 🙂

Their story on booking a wedding photographer & videographer gave me chills down my back. They booked & paid for a video & photo package deal with a local photographer some time ago. When the time came for their final consultation with him to discuss all relevant info of their day, he was dodging them. They decided to play it safe and find another photographer & videographer. They came in contact with Frans from Studio777 and he then contacted us. Frans and us go back quite a long way. Both our families immigrated from South Africa to AUS a couple of years ago, and back in SA, we worked together on a couple of weddings … he shoots videos and we are the photographers. We have always had a very good working relationship, so we were super excited to work alongside Frans for this wedding. Anyway, long story short we only met Chris & Mila for the first time on their actual wedding day. We always have a final consultation with couples before their big day so that we can touch base on all the important things. This is also the time when we get to know them. We find out what their likes and dislikes are so that on the day everything runs smoothly from our side. But with Chris & Mila we did not have this, so we did not know what exactly to expect in regards to their personalities. Frans said that they are a super nice couple with no hang-ups and very easy going. So this was what we hoped for and that was exactly what we got!

First stop was to photograph the boys getting ready. Chris & his good mate Josh was super easy going and made our jobs real easy. I think their inner model came out 🙂 Next stop was the girls getting ready. Mila greeted us at the front door, with the most gorgeous smile. That smile said it all … we were going to have an easy job. Milla and best friend since primary school days, Emma, was relaxed and chilled. Mila’s parents and cousin was around to brighten up her day and help out with everything Mila needed. Once she got into her gorgeous dress she was ready to get things going. The ceremony was next in line and apart from the wind picking up Mila’s veil and playing with it, everything ran smoothly. We went straight into the couple photo session that took place at the Fremantle Prison and the streets in the area. It was definitely a popular date for weddings, since we ran into 4 more wedding couples during our session! The wind was not kind to Mila at all, but since I’m a huge lover of playing with a veil during a shoot, the wind played up to my standards 🙂 I love veils, brides with veils, wind blowing veils … they make the most spectacular photos! After our session we headed back to photograph the gorgeous decorating job done by Mariana of The Wedding Place Perth. That cake … enough said!

I asked Mila to answer a few questions, so here is her take on things.

Where and how did you meet?
We met each other on 25 October 2013 on a night out in the city with friends.

How & where did Chris propose?
Chris proposed in Bali on the beach with a big heart in the sand, which was covered with rose petals. We had a romantic dinner watching the sunset afterwards.

Theme of your wedding?
Romantic, elegant and magical.

Color theme?
White, blush pink & ivory with lots of candles & fairy lights!

Details of your dress & accessories:
I bought my dress at Hobnob. I found it pretty quickly. I just knew it was “the one”!! My shoes were from Betts and my jewelry from David Jones & Thomas Sabo.

Anything else you want to add?
I couldn’t recommend Natasha, Deon and Studio777 enough. They were so nice and fun and professional. Time went so fast whilst getting our photos taken. The Wedding Place Perth was responsible for my decorations. Mariana did an amazing job; I don’t think my wedding would have been what it was without her. She knew exactly what I wanted and nothing was to hard for her. My day was perfect and so magical.

Thank you Chris & Mila, Josh & Emma for being such great fun. We were honored to share and capture this special day. We loved working with you guys and we love your photos!
