We are so ready to strap in for a month of modern, industrial styling thanks to The Industrial Issue and oh what a way to kick it off! Today, we’re sharing the beautiful story of Steph and Nick, who chose a Fremantle warehouse to say their I do’s.

The gritty pretty space styled minimally, allowing Steph and Nick’s story, the gathering of friends, and delicious food and wine to be the absolute centre of attention. “We wanted the wedding to be one big party and it definitely turned out that way” says Steph. “There was zero stiffness and formality, just everyone eating, drinking and dancing the night away.”

The couple, luckily for us (and you) chose Sandie Bertrand to capture their day in stills, the beautiful next step in a story of a couple who met through friends. “It’s a pretty boring story actually” reveals Steph “We met through friends and I got up the courage to ask him out after a couple of months of knowing each other.”


The groom chose a blue suit from MJ Bale.

Steph chose a simple, yet utterly stunning gown by designer Chosen by Khya. She shares “I didn’t want anything over the top with loads of lace or glitter. The gown was luxe, heavy silk that looked amazing on, despite being simple in its design.”

“I honestly loved every second. Literally, everything went perfectly and according to plan” tells Steph. “However, I loved the ceremony, and I loved having our dog, Kovu, there to be a part of it.”

“Our wedding party were amazing and so much fun” reminisces the bride. “The day wouldn’t have been the same without them.”

Of their chosen photographer, Steph says “We went with Sandie Bertrand who is a beautiful human being and an extremely talented photographer. I would recommend her to anyone.”

The beautiful blooms on the day were all of Steph’s handiwork! “I DIY’d all the flower arrangements myself, including the arbour and bouquets, with the help of my best friend and bridesmaid Rachael, plus my mother-in-law, Jacquie. The loose flowers and foliage were from the Yelverton Protea Farm.”

For her walk down the aisle, Steph chose “Sew My Name” by Josh Pyke. “I’ve been a Josh Pyke fan for years and years, so he definitely got featured a few times throughout the day,” she admits.

The criteria for this ceremony? It had to be filled with joy, the couple married by celebrant Kirk Goodsell. “We wanted the ceremony to be fun and full of joy – a vibe which Kirk Goodsell delivered in spades” remembers the bride. “He was amazing and I think literally every single guest came up to us to say how amazing the ceremony was.”

Steph and Nick booked the warehouse venue of Assembly Yard for both their ceremony and reception. “We live in East Freo and obviously love the area, so we were so happy with the location and vibe of the venue. We wanted everything to be as easy as possible for our guests. Honestly, it would be hard to pick just one amazing vendor out as a favourite as they all did such an amazing job. We were blown away by everyone’s kindness and professionalism, particularly the Assembly Yard crew (thank you Sam!); Kirk our celebrant; Sandie our photographer; Comida do sul, our caterer; and Probeat DJs.”


Steph and Nick chose a cocktail reception, with a decadent grazing table and food trucks. “We got in just two weeks before weddings were shut down due to COVID-19 hit. We were so thankful we were lucky enough to have so many overseas/interstate guests be a part of our wedding, including close friends from the US and Chile.”

Steph offers up this sage advice. “Remember your wedding is meant to be a celebration for your friends and family to enjoy as well, not just the two of you.”

Says the bride “I mentioned before that we wanted the wedding to be one big party and it definitely turned out that way. There was zero stiffness and formality, just everyone eating, drinking and dancing the night away.”

Congratulations to you both Steph and Nick! How lucky we are to be able to share your day. Thank you both and thank you to Sandie Bertrand for sharing today’s beautiful wedding with us.
