Barrett Lane Wedding Photographer
I always love returning to be a Barrett Lane wedding photographer. This exclusive wedding venue is something of a hidden gem tucked away down Lennard St in Herne Hill in the North Eastern region of Swan Valley. An idyllic wine estate setting with a beautiful function suite, Barrett Lane is a real favourite with us Perth wedding photographers.
Barrett Lane has a wonderfully rich history in the Swan Valley. Barrett Lane was created by the Prnich family, who started growing grapes in Croatia before the second world war and then relocation to the Swan Valley region 70 years ago and built their beautiful business from there.
One of the many things I love about returning to be a Barrett Lane wedding photographer is that it provides an intimate backyard setting for weddings. As weddings are literally held in the host’s backyard where the beautifully crafted gardens that make a stunning backdrop in all of my images.

As one of the few BYO wedding venues in Swan Valley, Barrett Lane offers great flexibility allowing couples to create their perfect wedding without having to compromise on any of the details. Food places a very central role at Barrett Lane weddings, with their in-house award-winning catering team providing stunning bespoke menus that never fair to wow guests by making large scale catering feel like a fine dining experience each and every single time. So, Barrett Lane is a wedding venue that is ideal for foodies.
Wedding ceremonies usually take place outside either in the pretty red bricked courtyard surrounded by mature trees. There is a beautiful arched hedge accessed by a raised area of steps where you stand to say your vows with your loved ones seated below. Or you can choose to have your wedding ceremony in the garden on the lawn, saying your vows under a pretty wooden gazebo surrounded by mature trees with your guests sat in rows on the lawn right beside you.
Drinks receptions usually happen outside too and as the sunsets the trees are lit creating a magical vibe perfect for a wedding celebration, something we Barrett Lane wedding photographers love!

Wedding receptions usually take place in the function suite. A wonderfully rustic wooden beamed building, with wood floors and ceiling to floor windows that making the most of the spectacular view of the vineyards and the beautiful countryside beyond. The windows also ensure the space is flooded with tons of natural light that I play with to create even more beautiful images of my couples their guests.
The rustic charm of the space is perfect for a wedding and can be decorated to your taste or just left as it is for a bared back natural look.
It really is so beautiful that it needs little or no adornment. Though I always look forward to seeing what my couples have done to this flexible space.
Another reason why I love capturing wedding photography at Barrett Lane is that its location makes it an ideal wedding venue for all seasons.
I have captured weddings there throughout different times of the year and every time I’m blown away by the beauty of this location. This is partly down to the fact that the Barrett Lane ceremony space and suite both face West, as the sun also sets in the West it allows me to capture exceptional sunset shots that make the dreamiest of romantic portrait images of my couples.
It’s all about the feeling you leave your couples with.
"Jacob was extremely professional from the very first time we contacted him. He is such an easy-going human being, the day went by just like that and the photos, THE PHOTOS! So beautifully shot and so beautifully thought out.
We cannot be happier with Jacob and we will gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding photographer."

I’ve also been known to whisk the bridal party away for a few minutes for a mini photoshoot. Just a ten-minute drive can take us to a whole new setting. And the lovely team at Barrett Lane even pack some canapes and refreshments to take along with us. Nothing is ever too much trouble for these guys.
So if you’re looking for a Swan Valley wedding venue in a stunning location with rustic and character and charm then you should definitely take a look at Barrett Lane. It really is an amazing wedding venue but don’t just take my word for it. The best thing about planning a wedding is getting to visit fantastic wedding venues in beautiful places so have fun with it.
