Wilson Botanic Park, Berwick
Wedding days are so full of love. Samantha and Andrew’s wedding at the Wilson Botanical Gardens in Berwick was the epitome of this. It may have taken them 3,297 days to say their I do’s, but when they did, it was so full of love that the 100 strong crowd of close friends and family truly were holding back tears of joy. Congratulations Samantha and Andrew, what a wonderful wedding it was!
The day started with the boys at Sam and Andrew’s house. It was a very relaxed atmosphere with the guys just sharing stories and having a laugh. The guys suited up and then we went to a local park to take a few snaps of the guys having some fun including Andrew being pushed on the kids swing.
I then travelled to Sam’s parent’s house where the girls were preparing for the big day. Like the guys, they were as relaxed as can be, enjoying each others company and having a laugh.
The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick. The park is one of the most wonderful settings for a wedding that I have seen. The gathering took place just in front of a huge lake which was surrounded by lush green trees. We then used as much of the park as we could for the wedding portraits. Around every corner there was something new to take photos at.
The party really got started at the reception which was held at Sam’s parent’s house. There was a huge dancefloor and marquee set up to house there close friends and family, a live band, a bar, a huge table full of grazing foods and by far the best beef and pork sliders I think I have ever had in my life!
Thank you so much Sam and Andrew for having me at your wedding.
