Rachelle & Leon's Flock Hill wedding

Written by Angela Penn on November 25th, 2014.      0 comments

Rachelle met Leon when he used to come into the electrical supply shop she worked at in Timaru.  He worked for his dad and whenever the two of them went in for more supplies, Rachelle (according to Leon's dad) gave them great service. Apparently not so great when Leon wasn't there!  Anyway, a few years and two beautiful children later, here they are tying the know!

It was a stunning day for Rachelle and Leon's wedding at Flock Hill, albeit a tad windy so luckily they had plan B which meant the ceremony was to be held on the flat (just as beautiful but more intimate).

I started off with the girls at Castle Hill, while Erin (Inspire Images) headed straight to Flock Hill to shoot the details and see what the boys were up to.

This gorgeous young man is the couple's son, Connor.  He was a bit shy of me at first and then I pulled out the silly faces and farty noises.

And Miss Bridget is Connor's beautiful older sister.

Connor tried to have a wee sleep while getting his hair cut!

And then it's time for Rachelle to get dressed - her mum's reaction is gorgeous.

Rachelle is a very clever girl. She made all these gorgeous details, right down to hundreds (yes hundreds and hundreds!) of love hearts, made out of old books and maps (she likes to read, he travels for work).

Time for a daddy-daughter dance.  You're never too old (or too young) to dance with your dad.
