Pop Up Weddings Come to Perth
As part of our Quirky and Colourful issue, we interviewed marriage celebrant Josh Withers about the new pop up weddings that are sweeping across Australia.
This weekend the pop up wedding stormed into Perth, and enjoyed it's most successful session so far, with six couples eschewing tradition to say 'I do' in a unique way.
A whole 727 guests were left uninvited and a collective sum of $210,000 dollars was saved by the six couples who chose to wed at Chapel Farm on Monday, 2nd June. The ceremony was conducted by marriage celebrant Dru Soltys, and couples had their photos taken by Perth's most in-demand wedding photographer Angela Higgins in a wedding styled by The Butcher, The Baker, The Stylist & Creator.
Josh says: "Perth's pop-up wedding event was by far the most successful
event of it's kind so far. Six couples and were married, with couples
travelling over 700km to get married at the Chapel Farm! Emma and Paul
celebrated their first anniversary of immigrating to Australia by getting
married with their four children as their witnesses then Tim and Melissa (not
their real names) drove from Kalgoorlie to be married with only their two
closest friends in the ceremony, letting their family find out via
Facebook. We're really looking forward to seeing the pop-up wedding
roadshow setting up in more cities soon!"
