Laura & Rowan

There is a chic sense of the beautiful in today’s all white waterside wedding. From the bride’s stunning beautiful gown, to the peaceful and beautiful church ceremony. The celebratory boat ride and the flowers, oh, the incredible flowers at the reception! This wedding comes our way from gm photographics.

It seems Laura and Rowan were always meant to be. On how they met, Laura tells, “Our parents have always known each other, and our dad’s went to school together back 50 years ago in Sicily.”

The bridal party arrived by boat to the reception, Laura noting, “Rowan and I where the only two that were supposed to be on the boat but at the last minute we got a bigger boat and the bridal party joined us!”. The trip turned out to be one of her favourite parts of the day.
