While Bek and Steve had been married for some years, their original wedding had been a quiet affair and they had always wanted to have a big celebration surrounded by family and friends.

Whilst not wanting anything too lavish, they still wanted it to be meaningful so decided to renew their vows in a simple ceremony. They also wanted to put on a reception where their guests could enjoy themselves and help them celebrate their commitment to each other.

They were looking for a DIY venue and booked the Robertson School of Arts for their reception. They then needed to find somewhere nice for a casual ceremony and photos, which led them to The Secret Garden.

Being early December, The Rose Lawn was looking at its best so both Bek and Steve agreed it was the best place to have their ceremony.

They came for a rehearsal the day before and took the opportunity to decorate the arbour in a pale blue sheer voile and two posies of flowers that matched the bride’s bouquet. Quite simple, but it looked beautiful.

The day was overcast but dry, which made for some wonderful photography in the garden

Bek and Steve’s young daughter was a flower girl and Bek was accompanied down the aisle by her dad and son.

After the ceremony, the couple and their families spent a couple of hours in the garden with their photographer, Emma Marie Photography, while their guests took the short trip over to Robertson to partake of the hospitality arranged by Bek and Steve.

As always, we wish Bek and Steve, and their children, all the best for the future and feel privileged at being part of their long-awaited celebrations.
