Wedding – Chantal & Jon

by admin, March 24, 2013

A garden wedding! not just any garden wedding either, what a beautiful BEAUTIFUL setting!! We first dropped in to see how the boys were getting on at Jon’s parent’s place in Normanby where the ceremony was going to be, then popped on over to see the girls at Chantal’s parents place in Hawera. Chantal’s the eldest of six children, the first wedding, a bit of pressure on? you wouldn’t know it if there was, more calm excitement I’d say. A little brother with a penchant for photography, another brother straightening a tie, others floating around somewhere in their 2 story family home, a loving sister, a Mum and Dad that just want it to be the most special day ever for their daughter.. and that it certainly was! It’s always noticeable when the bride is calm before the wedding, and Chantal was! it was on, and it was perfect, and Jon was the perfect man, the man of her dreams. He’s a big guy, fit & muscular, and the pure gentleman. These two adore each other, and you can see why…

So, back to Jon’s parents for the ceremony, such a beautiful day, the odd fluffy cloud floating around, not too hot, everyone gathered around and in Chantal entered through a beautiful garden path and across the expansive lawn. And there they gave their love to each other.

After Much hugs and congratulations we popped out the back to see Jon’s horse, with a quick couple of shots in the garden on the way. While there Chantal pointed out a sneaky little pine forest with the most beautiful light- Bingo!

Into the Limo and we were off… Heading into Naumai Park in Hawera.. a quaint little bridge with filtered light at different levels everywhere, oh bliss!! we had a bit of fun here, such a great group, all cracking jokes and having a laugh, a perfect day!

Reception was at TSB Hub, if you haven’t been here then you’ll be like me, the reception room was upstairs and has quite a breathtaking view when you first walk in. The set up was fabulous, and the cake, well I have to say, the cake was phenomenal!

A beautiful day, a fantastic bunch of people.. just perfect!…
