Olga arrived early on this sunny, warm autumn morning along with her bridesmaids; there was a real sense of excitement and lots of laughter throughout the morning whilst hair was being styled, and makeup applied. It was soon time for Olga to put on her beautiful bridal gown, she looked simply stunning. Once the final finishing touches had been put in place, they started to make their way downstairs and toward the banqueting hall where the ceremony was to be held.

As they walked down the hall, they could hear the banqueting begin to hush as everyone waited expectantly to see Olga for the first time that day. James was standing at the end of the aisle looking toward the curtains, as the music started Olga and her bridesmaids stepped onto the cream aisle carpet, James’s face lit up with pride, as Olga reached James and their eyes meet, their smiles turned to grins. The civil ceremony finished to the rapturous applause of their family and friends as they walked up the aisle as husband and wife.

Everyone was now able to relax and congratulate Olga and James before they were whisked away to capture some fabulous intimate photographs together in and around the grounds at Parklands.
