Dollar Park Wedding – Natalie and Simon
My last wedding in October was on a beautiful autumn day despite all the rain we’d been having.
You’ve got Male
Thirteen years ago Natalie had a hot postie. And that hot postie also fancied Natalie so he managed to get her number and started texting her, which led to dating and then three beautiful daughters!
In February 2012 during a meal at The Shore, Simon surprised Natalie with a proposal and an engagement ring hidden inside a cake.
Yes, I’m milking the postman puns – you work with what you’ve been given 🙂
Natalie was right on time. Before she arrived I had the chance to get some photos of Simon with his best man brother and with his three girls.
Then it was time for the ceremony.
As their families and girls watched on Natalie and Simon became Mr & Mrs Robertson.
My Love is like a Red Red Rose
After they had signed the official wedding documents, Natalie and Simon did a rose-giving ceremony that I’d never seen before.
The idea was to exchange a rose and then anytime they needed a reminder of their ceremony and their love for each other they could exchange roses.
Isn’t that charming? 🙂
I love capturing the shot after the ‘just married’ shot as you can see the relief and relaxation in the faces of the couple. Natalie and Simon were no exception.
As the weather was still on our side it was off to Dollar Park to get some formal photographs.
I love asking groups to look at their favourite person when I’m clicking away. It always produces some interesting results!
Once the family photos were complete, the guests headed off to The Shore ready for the meal. Leaving Natalie, Simon, and their slightly awkward gooseberry of a photographer to wander around the park.
And yes I snuck in a Groom holding flowers shot.
What a good sport Simon was!
As it had been a 4 pm wedding we were fighting against the disappearing light but we still managed to get loads of photos of the newly married couple.
Then it was time for them to head off and meet the family for a nice meal before the real partying started that evening.
Congratulations again Mr & Mrs Robertson xXx
