Katie & Brook {Married}

Carrying Katie to the front door, shoes in hand after an epic bus trip somewhat 5 years ago… Brook never imagined mid carry, that he would be standing here today about to marry the girl of his dreams. But in his speech he declares just how glad he is as life without Katie… well, it is completely unimagined!

March 30th 2013. We are well and truly into Autumn now. But is it Autumn? … With a balmy 25 degree weather resembling summer , the flora of Trotts Gardens looked very much like that of Spring… But the leaves were orange enough in the trees to remind you that it is in fact Autumn. March 3oth could have delivered anything…  and it delivered nothing short of the perfect for Katie & Brook’s beautiful wedding day.

Katie is the most beautiful girl. And I can tell she has a huge heart…

She laughs! She laughs like she means it! I even overheard someone after the ceremony, state that they heard Katie laughing on the doorsteps of the chapel before she even made her grand entrance. It was ‘sooo Katie’ and that tells me she has a laugh to remember!! … Spending just the day with her… I whole heartily agree!

Trotts Gardens in Ashburton held this gorgeous day. The whole venue is simply beautiful. From the chapel to the beautifully manicured gardens.

Katie was laughing on one side of the chapel door. But as soon as she saw Brook and in turn Brook seeing Katie. I saw the most amazing emotion during those first steps towards each other like no other.

Doug is the master at looking out for the grooms ‘ring twirl’. It’s guaranteed! … The bride has had an X amount of time to get used to a ring on that finger. For the Groom… its still new and feels a little weird! Guaranteed the groom always has a play with it numerous times throughout the rest of the day!

These guys were so much fun!!! Most of them have known each other since they were little. And you could feel the bonds and friendships. They were a good laugh!
