On an unseasonably hot Autumn day in Perth, (in fact, it was the hottest May day on record) Clarissa and Joshua vowed to spend the rest of their lives together.

The couple consciously decided their wedding would focus on bringing together the special people in their life with good food, drinks and lots of dancing.

‘We had a bigger guest list, but we knew we wanted to keep it as low key and cosy as possible,’ explains Clarissa.

With this front of mind, they didn’t spend much time over thinking or analysing elements of their big day. If they liked it (and it fit within their budget) then went with it!

‘We planned this wedding in just over 7 months…we didn’t have time to get bogged down over the small details,’ adds Clarissa.

In a risky move that fortunately paid off, the couple had their ceremony at the sweetest church they’d booked after merely viewing pictures of it on Google.

‘It couldn’t have worked out more perfect,’ says Clarissa.

‘It was so beautiful with its high ceilings, wooden beams and natural lighting that we added no decorations, other than a floral arbour at the entrance!’

The reception was held in a clear marquee overlooking the river. It was styled to minimalistic perfection with blooms, festoon and drop lights.

The flowers were definitely the standout feature of the day, with soft warm tones of muted pinks, oranges and yellows, paired with leafy greens and magnolia leaves.

‘I wasn’t fussy about what blooms were used. I just showed the wonderful Ebony from Covet Collect some inspo I liked and trusted her to create all the floral pieces,’ says Clarissa.
