Matt and Tia
by DeRay & Simcoe

Updated on 07 August 2017, Perth

Matthew & Tia decided to hold their wedding back in Matthew’s hometown of Perth but Tia had never actually been to a western style wedding while she was planning her own as she lived in Jakata! She spent hours scouring wedding blogs to find inspiration for her own wedding. They wanted the day to be the coming together of the two different cultures and feature lots of Indonesian design details as well as a traditional Catholic ceremony. They chose Aquinas College chapel as the ceremony venue as it had sentimental value to Matthew’s family. His father was the principal there when Matthew was a boy so he grew up on the school grounds. The distinctive red brick buildings were a beautiful backdrop for the autumn leaves. The State Reception Centre in King’s Park was the natural choice for their reception, situated high up in the gum tree canopy with it’s iconic views overlooking the city skyline. They kept the strong family theme by selecting Matthew’s sister Amanda for the bridesmaid and Tia’s brother Danny as the best man. Tia’s exquisite lace dress and mantilla veil suited her petite frame perfectly, and Jimmy Choos completed the look. Matthew brought a few quirky touches to the wedding such as his handmade wooden bowtie sourced on a trip to visit his brother in New York. They had many guests travel to attend the wedding from Indonesia and hired a wedding planner from The Original Wedding Company just to help coordinate them. This ensured the overseas guests had a wonderful time without having to worry about travel on the wedding day etc. Matthew and Tia were so in love and it was such a pleasure to be part of this unique wedding. They put a lot of care and consideration into making sure their diverse range of guests had a wonderful time on the day.
