Courtney & Aaron had the most amazing wedding day planned, but also had a few last minute spanners thrown in the works!
The ceremony was going to be on a secluded beach out in Sandy Point, but a burnt out car was dumped and blocked the entrance just days beforehand. Aarons Nans rest home was in a lockdown because of covid risks, they they would be able to go in and visit her.
They didn’t let these things phase them and got on with solutions! They ended up getting married in the celebrant Sally’s backyard. It was a beautiful intimate ceremony with sweet vows & a few tears.
Being such a hot day we decided just to stay in the garden for photos and skip the driving time to our original location. Ice cold beers and wine went down a treat as it got hotter and hotter as the afternoon wore on.
With the rest home in lockdown Courtney & Aaron decided to still go and visit, just through the window.
The reception was held at Ascot Racecourse and they were joined by a big group of friends and family. It was a super relaxed evening with speeches, dancing and pizza!
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Templer! 🥂
