After reconnecting with each other in the last few years, Melissa and Paul realised they shared a true love.
They celebrated their love for each other with a beautiful ceremony in the Sunken Garden of the Botanic Gardens. A couple of pre-ceremony rain showers couldn’t stop them and they were married in front of their close family and friends.
Their granddaughter led the way around the pond (my lens froggie helped encourage her to start walking so Melissa could follow). In a unique start to the ceremony, Melissa walked on one side of the pond and Paul walked on the other side and they met in the middle in front of the arch.
We orchestrated a first look photo before the ceremony. Paul was waiting in the Botanic Gardens for Melissa to arrive (I found a spot with a bench in case he had to wait a little while). It’s always heartwarming when the groom sees his bride for the first time. We got some lovely photos before the ceremony and more after.
Melissa and Paul had an outdoor reception in the Sunken Garden immediately following the ceremony. Congratulations to the lovely couple!
