State Buildings Wedding Photographer
We all love our historical buildings so it’s always great when one is as lovingly maintained and re-imagined as the State Buildings in the historical heart of Perth CBD. These three iconic heritage buildings have been cleverly combined into one vibrant cultural destination that today stands as a health, wellness, retail, cafés, bars and fine dining experience creating an exciting hotchpotch of fantastic Perth wedding venues.
One of the many things I love about capturing wedding photography at State Buildings is that it offers such versatility. Its event spaces offer something wildly different meaning that they can cater for weddings of all budgets, tastes and size. I will talk about these spaces now.
The Mark is a versatile and intimate wedding space with sweeping views over Stirling Gardens. The Mark offers an airy and open area with high ceilings, jarrah wood floors and original Western Australian artwork. The Mark is ideal for cocktail style celebrations or an intimate wedding reception with space for up to 100 guests.

It boasts itself as a triumph of contemporary Thai flavours, incorporating a 130-seat dining room with an open plan kitchen, a large 120 guest outdoor courtyard and a 45-seat cocktail bar.
