Deciding on a Perth wedding reception venue
When organising a wedding one of the first things to consider is choosing a wedding venue for your reception.
Once this is decided on and the date is confirmed it allows you to book celebrants or the church and other suppliers like wedding photographers and a DJ. The size of your wedding party and number of guests you invite will also need to finalise before booking the reception venue. as you may choose a venue that can not cater for your number of guests.
Some Venues have the benefit of allowing the wedding ceremony and reception to be held all in the one location, giving more time to be spent with guests, less commuting time is involved and allowing your wedding photographer to spend more time taken photos without the need to travel to separate locations for photography. You need to take into account what you require for your reception venue and ceremony needs. If you are religious you will most likely want to hold your ceremony at a church or other religious locations in Perth. You have to also weigh up how close the ceremony is to the reception venue as this may be a contributing factor in your final decision.
Parks are probably the most common choice for a Perth wedding ceremony today. Choosing this type for your wedding you are presented with endless options to decide over. However you should have a backup plan should bad weather be expected for your day.
Another popular location is a beach wedding considering Perth’s beautiful coastline and weather to match, the sound of the breaking waves in the background can bring sense of peace and serenity to your wedding ceremony. A couple of popular locations are Sorrento beach and Leighton beach both are close to reception venues that will host an amazing celebration.
