Lauren and Aaron returned from Macao for their wedding at the beautiful Cape Estate in Te Awanga, Hawke’s Bay. Aaron is a helicopter pilot who had flown Lauren off to Macao where he has taken up a new job after leaving the Air Force. So their wedding in Te Awanga was a reunion with colleagues, friends and family as well as a celebration of their marriage.
The Bridal and Groom parties were family affairs of Brother, Sisters, Nephews and Nieces with the little ones dressing up fabulously for the part. Lauren stunned Aaron and all of us in her wonderfully fitting dress and look how proud her Dad is walking her down the aisle.
After the ceremony and congratulations, Lauren’s brother Ty arrived to drive Laurena and Aaron down to Te Awanga beach for a bit of time-out. Lauren shed a tear when she saw that her transport was her grandfather’s classic Holden which Ty is restoring bringing back many happy memories to all the family.
Here’s a few of my favourite images telling the story of their day. Not so much what everybody looked like but images of who they are and the relationships between each other. Images that I hope will evoke happy memories and strong emotions every time they look at them. They will for me too!
