Hannah & Sam | Stables Bar Perth Wedding

A Stables Bar Perth Wedding

Hannah and Sam threw their wedding celebration last October and when I look back through this season cut short, it was easily one of the highlights. Somehow, my kind of couples seem to always find me, and these two were no different. From our first meeting at Stables Bar, tucked into a corner where we could barely hear each other over the noise and getting lost in conversation about beer, gin, and tv, I knew we were going to hit it off.

One of the great things about a wedding venue like Stables Bar in Perth is that everything is SO central. The great thing about having everything central and close? Travel is a breeze. Han and her women walked from their room at the Melbourne Hotel (oh, perhaps a good 6 minutes from start to finish), and the guys hopped on the CAT bus and jumped off a few stops later. 

I’m also not-so-secretly in love with the way Hannah and Sam styled their wedding. Not sure if artistic is the right word? However you’d describe it, they really injected their personality and soul into all the pieces they chose, some of my favourites being – the mismatched bridesmaid dresses, Sam’s smart jacket/chinos combination, Hannah’s shoe choice (BOTH pairs), and the ceremony arbour alternative.

The Bar

I have to quickly reiterate how much I love this venue – not just for weddings but as a food & drink joint in the city. They always have a fantastic beer selection (and if you know me, you know I love a good craft beer), and out of the hundreds of wedding venues I’ve been to, this one hits the top of the list for how they take care of their vendors for dinner. It’s not as easy as it sounds to get fed a decent meal while I’m photographing (let alone at a decent time), and I still have dreams about the gnocchi from that night. Likewise, the staff also coordinated with me to move the speeches forward a bit earlier so that I could capture all the formalities before I was done for the evening – something I’m sure it wasn’t easy for them to do.
