It starts with two hearts that become one.
A certain question leads to a beautiful gown.
With a beautiful bride…
… Called Alex.
But what’s a beautiful bride without her dashing groom… we call him Harry (But his name is actually Paul).
And so the story begins. British born Alex followed a boyfriend to New Zealand, lucky for Harry, things didn’t work out. Within a year Harry went looking for his dream speed boat on Trade Me… and came away with him dream girl.
A trip to England to visit Alex’s family. Had Harry with intentions of proposing. A very nervous Harry, had Alex thinking he was going to break up with her. But instead, a proposal, in a beer garden with family close by…
…Near a morbid looking river that seemed like a murder mystery could take place (unfortunately… that part is true). Soon after they headed to the pristine beaches of Croatia where Harry imagined he’d propose. But Hey, that’s no story to tell the kids… unknowingly proposing near a river where deceased bodies had recently been found … now that’s a story!!!
At least this story… is a happy one!
Doug hangs out with the men at Harry’s parents place and then The Old Vicarage Bar for a pint for 2.
As does the wee flower girls.
While I’m out with the girls at Hope Villa Bed and Breakfast.
The emotions of the day run from beginning to end. A unbelievably proud Mum helps Alex into her dress.
As Dad reads over his speech and awaits to see his only daughter as a bride.
But tears couldn’t ruin the gorgeous make up by Mariessa Waddington.
Alex’s parents live in England, and couldn’t be prouder of her and the life she has found in our rolley city. Especially the man she found along the way.
Before we know it… It’s show time. Harry awaits his future wife at The Vineyard at Rossendales.
And he couldn’t be more stunned with how she looks.
I love how Alex and Harry’s Mum’s hold onto the rings and stand with them as they exchange them.
I now pronounce you husband and wife and the crowd goes wildddddd!
Happy to be married? Abso-freakin-lutely!
It was meant to be bucketing down with rain today. Thank you blue skies for showing your face to give these lovely guests the chance to wear their sunnies and toast to the new Mr & Mrs Harrison amongst the vines.
Oh did I forget to mention what the Bridesmaids showed up in?! One each no less!
Harry nearly died seeing his Bride in the truck!
Doug stuck with the guys and uh, there may or may not be a shot of them peeing on the fence at one point. That is something I can neither confirm nor deny. ;-)
And look how beautiful the girls looks!
Now it’s time for Alex to whisk her new husband off for some photos of just the two of them.
In a field of yellow goodness no less…
And if you don’t either run or frolick through a yellow field… the yellow field is wasted!
This makes me happy!
As does this.
Thank you SO much to you Alex and Harry, for choosing us to share this special day with you. It was a sensational day filled with so much love and emotion and it was a pleasure capturing that!
I can’t wait to show you the rest of your images!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Harrison!
