Pop Up Weddings Come to Perth

by zoe@hitched

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!"
