Akoonah Park, Berwick
Ria and Rhys were married in a beautiful garden wedding at Akoonah Park in Berwick.
The day started at breakfast with Rhy’s close friends and family. After the hearty meal we headed to the barber shop to freshen up. Rhys got the closest shave of his life. We then proceeded to take some photos with his friends and family as the rain started to gather outside.
We met up with Ria at her household as she was finalising her makeup. Thankfully the rain cleared and we were able to head outside to take some photos with her family who had travelled from abroad.
Ria and Rhys were married at Akoonah Park in the garden. Rhys and his groomsmen had spent the morning getting the venue ready. They put the chairs out, lit the candles, raised the arch and started to welcome the guests. When Ria arrived she was walked down the aisle by her whole family. Her dad, mum and son were all there to help walk her down. The ceremony truly was beautiful and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as they exchanged there vows. The rain threatened all day, but thankfully as we walked through the park it cleared to a light cloud covering giving us perfect light for photos.
The reception really was a party! There was loud music, dancing and some of the best burgers I’ve ever had served straight from the food truck out the front!
Thanks for having me there on your big day.
Venue: Akoonah Park

At Now and Forever Photography I do my best make being photographed a comfortable experience so that you have images to cherish for a lifetime.
