Meet Rhonda and Pete! They are one of those couples that just instantly put a big smile on your face when you see them with each other. They have found love, and they dedicated their lives to each other in a beautiful ceremony at Glenfalloch Gardens on the peninsula! Their day was a celebration of two hearts and two families coming together - a beautiful story of love and companionship.
But hold up, I'm getting ahead of myself... beautiful Rhonda hadn't actually arrived at her beautiful wedding at Glenfalloch Gardens yet! The guests all gathered together with a flurry of hugs, handshakes, and smiles as they all caught up with old friends and family.
A sneaky peek around the corner to see the bride on her way...
...so a very happy groom gets into position! Pete has such a great smiley face!
Rhonda just looked so beautiful, and was walked up the aisle by her lovely "bridesmaids"!
Love the way they look at each other.
For Rhonda and Pete, this day definitely wasn't just about them! They wanted photos of every single guest there with their partners and families... a celebration of all those there who support and love Rhonda and Pete! Here is just a wee collection of some of those gorgeous photos!
After the ceremony, we went off with the bridal party for a short photo shoot around gorgeous Glenfalloch.
Rhonda and Pete are incredibly affectionate, and had no qualms about getting snuggly in front of the camera! In fact, I couldn't actually stop them! I got the feeling their children didn't really appreciate this all of the time though... :)
Pete's "Best Man" (his lovely daughter, Anita!) and his two sons, Brad and Todd, made an awesome support crew for Pete. And I was waiting for Rhonda's "Bridesmaids" (her sons, James and Luke) to turn up in dresses, but alas, it didn't happen. These guys all seem to have a really nice bond, and so much respect for each other.
A sneaky wee practice of their first dance...
While I was taking the above picture, Liam took this candid shot... Rhonda and Pete looking proudly at their awesome new family!
The family gave some incredibly hilarious and heartfelt speeches, and then the party got started!
As the guests all tucked into dinner, Liam and I went running down the hill to get to the gorgeous sunset looking over Dunedin. A beautiful end to such a lovely day!
Rhonda and Pete, thank you so much for inviting us into your wonderful wedding!! It was just all so beautiful, and the way you love each was just so lovely to capture! There are SO many more images to show you! All the very, very best for your life together!
