On Fridays I am going to be posting about some venues in Western Australia. I enquired about so many venues when I was looking for somewhere to get married and it was hard because there weren't many places that you could just google that had a huge list of contemporary or nicely styled venues. It is hard sifting through hundreds of different websites, so hopefully this will help someone out there! Let me know if you are hunting for something specific and I will try to help out!
So without further ado - here are some venues that I think would suit someone looking for old-world charm, with some modern sensibilities. These particular venues have both a lovely outdoor garden area and charming inside rooms for other functions.
Peel Manor House
Located outside of the metropolitan area, this venue has a lovely garden area and a nice driveway to arrive in. The inside of the house is a little old fashioned, but it's finished in neutral colours and you could decorate it really nicely. You can book accommodation at Peel Manor House and there is a beautiful lake area that would be nice for an outdoor ceremony.

Cottesloe Civic Centre
Another popular wedding venue, because golly, look at that view!! The huge grass area overlooking the Indian Ocean is gorgeous, the ceremony staircase is romantically styled (Zac and I even explored there just before we got engaged!) the formal gardens offer a whole bunch of outdoor reception areas, marquee areas and there are indoor rooms if you prefer (or if you think it will be cold at night). The whole complex is style, style, style... I love the Civic Centre, even if no one else is around and you're just exploring with your honey :)

One of the more popular wedding locations in Perth, but of course, there is a reason for that reputation. Beautifully maintained limestone walled formal gardens and a beautiful french-styled interior in the reception area. Did I mention this place has it's own boat and dock if you want to use it? Oh, did I also mention it has a massive waterfall you can walk behind? So beautiful...
