Colourful DIY Backyard Perth Wedding with Surprise Musical Guest — Wendy & Gavin

Wendy & Gavin

Private Property, Perth WA

Having met at a music festival, Gavin and Wendy wanted to incorporate a fun, celebratory vibe and a backyard party in the Perth suburbs was the perfect way to do it. Donning their DIY gloves, Gavin and Wendy found and restored just about all of the furniture and props, including the brightly painted doors they used as their ceremony backdrop.

I knew they were the couple for me the second that i saw a framed portrait of Danny Trejo in their wedding decor.

Wendy had her heart set on her Hayley Paige dress from the beginning, and were going to pick it up in America when they were on holiday. When the day arrived the sample got sent away! A few months later she found a store in Melbourne (Eternal Bridal) that had just started to stock the designer, so she immediately booked it in.

Georgia Maq (of Camp Cope) played guitar and sung - they walked down the aisle to Cinema by Benny Benassi, and first dance was to Feel Good Inc by Gorillaz.
