Katie and Michael find ‘one-stop-shop’ venue for classic elegant wedding


Perth couple Katie, 32, and Michael, 34, met via online dating where they arranged their first date to be at The Floreat Hotel.

It was a good sign for the pair, who later bought their first home together in that same suburb. Their classic elegant wedding on December 29, 2017 took place at Wesley College Chapel, following by a reception at The Boatshed Restaurant. “After visiting many popular wedding venues around Perth, we came across The Boatshed Restaurant in South Perth as a friend had been to a wedding there and said it was amazing,” smiles the bride.

The venue had everything the couple needed, including backdrops, candles, table mirrors and chair bows. “They even provide the flowers and wedding cake,” explains Katie. “The owner Graeme oversees every detail of your wedding and is even there on the night to ensure all goes perfectly.”

Katie says it was “a stunning summer’s day in the most perfect setting showcasing Perth’s magnificent city skyline. My mum had just survived cancer and it was a true blessing to have her there by our side.”
