Beautiful wedding at the historic Ebenezer church
Ashleigh and Allan planned an amazing wedding filled with surprises. The attention to detail and level of planning was second to none. Django, their very much loved Staffy was a bit of a star on the day too. Bouncing around with excitement in the morning and with the wedding rings tied to his collar he was the official ring bearer too.
In the morning I spent some time with Ashleigh and Allan while they prepared for the big day. A secluded cottage on the banks of the river made for a peaceful morning. There really was a lot of family history in the area, one stories of Grandparents who even met on the very river we were overlooking while getting ready for the big day. There was a surprise car that picked up Allan and more surprises were to follow.
One of the biggest surprises of the day involved the band Ashleigh had organised. Some 20 years earlier Allan had bought his prized Sandman panel van off Dave. Ashleigh had organised Dave and his band to play at the reception. Neither Dave or Allan knew each other would be there and when they arrived at the reception the look on Dave’s face was priceless. With distinctive reverse tear drop windows in the panel van it was a one of a kind and Dave instantly knew it was his old car from 20 years earlier. The look on his and Allan’s face as they made the entrance was awesome. This car is pretty famous in the car scene winning many awards and featuring on the cover of magazines so it was a very big deal to say the least.
The only part of the day that outshone the cars was the way Ashleigh and Allan looked at each other. All other surprises aside it really was beautiful to see these guys together and they both made my job very easy. Thank you for sharing your day with me!
