The love be­tween Exmouth and fish­ing is as strong as that of a new­ly­wed cou­ple, so it was only fit­ting re­cently hitched Perth cou­ple Steph and Dave Szilagyi cast a line dur­ing their Nin­ga­loo Coast wed­ding.

The Szi­lagyis got mar­ried on a beach near the light­house on April 27, cit­ing Exmouth as a nat­u­ral choice for the cer­e­mony be­cause they had fond mem­o­ries fish­ing around the town.

Be­fore the wed­ding, the cou­ple man­aged to get out on a boat to hook a black mar­lin each. Mrs Szilagyi said while the thrill of catch­ing and re­leas­ing her first mar­lin was hard to beat, the wed­ding was per­fect.

“We have been to­gether for three years but first met a long time ago at the tackle shop I was work­ing at,” she said.

“Dave was a reg­u­lar cus­tomer then one night, we bumped into each other while fish­ing in Freo and we have been in­sep­a­ra­ble since.

“It’s nice to be able get en­joy­ment from the things you love do­ing, and to be able to share all of those mo­ments with the one you love just makes it even bet­ter.”

Blue Me­dia Wed­dings photographer Vi­o­leta Jah­nel Brosig was tasked with be­ing be­hind the lens for the shoot.

“They were quite re­laxed,” she said.

“(The bride) is a fish­ing kind of girl and had just got her first mar­lin be­fore the wed­ding.

“When I went in the morn­ing to check the lo­ca­tion for the wed­ding shoot the or­cas were breach­ing there — it was just per­fect.”

The cou­ple kept ev­ery­thing lo­cal, us­ing cel­e­brant Hi­lary Van Eldik, or­der­ing a cake from Nin­ga­loo Cakes and get­ting hair done by Re­lax and Re­vive Exmouth.
