Natalie & Ben are high school sweethearts. They met through mutual friends in Grade 9 at high school and have been together ever since.
It was New Year’s Eve 2013 when Ben surprised Natalie shortly after watching the midnight fireworks with his marriage proposal – what a way to bring in the new year !
Natalie & Ben married on 28 August 2015 at Topiaries in Samford.
The theme of the wedding was relaxed modern & classic with Natalie wearing a stunning White Lily Couture gown and her floral bouquet was full of colourful Spring blooms by the talented Kate Dawes Flower Design.
Natalie walked down the aisle to “Marry Me” by Train. The newlyweds tell me the best memory from their wedding day was seeing each other for the first time.
During the bridal party photoshoot on the property that backs on to Topiaries, we were greeted by a baby goat which kept us all amused and because of the attention it was receiving from the bridal party, the baby goat didn’t want to leave, becoming the star for a few moments of the day.
Natalie & Ben’s bridal waltz song was “Everything” by Michael Buble.
Natalie & Ben enjoyed ten days honeymooning in Hawaii including Maui and Oahu at Waikiki Beach.
“After searching for a photographer with the style of photography we were after we came across Deb Boots. Deb made everything so easy right from the beginning. The package we booked with Deb included an engagement photo session, where her creativity and professionalism stood out. We were amazed with how relaxed she was able to make us feel in front of the camera and this helped us feel more comfortable and natural on our wedding day. Not only was Deb able to capture many beautiful images, she was able to capture the emotions and feeling of our wedding day.
We are grateful for Deb’s wonderful work and recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for a special occasion.”
