Sam and Aimee had chosen the beautiful, secluded Hat Head beach to have their wedding ceremony at. The day started out windy which forced the ceremony to be moved onto the grass next to their reception which was inside the Hat Head Surf Life Saving Club.
My first view of the groom and groomsmen had them driving into the ceremony in utes. The arbour was made up and sitting in the tub of one of the utes while a few of the groomsmen held it steady. The girls from Karlys Cafe Kempsey were busy getting the grazing tables ready for all the guests.
The ceremony start time was looming and it was time for everyone to get into place. Sam along with some of his groomsmen moved the arbour into position and secured it down. Dianne, who was the florist, was pinning the boutonnières onto Sam and his groomsmen and Debby South, the celebrant was making sure all the guests were ready for when Aimee arrived with her bridesmaids.
Sam and Aimee had their two children stand with them while all their neices and nephews were seated right at the front of all the guests. One by one the bridesmaids all came down the aisle following by Aimee and her father. I don't need to explain Sam's reaction, its completley evident in all the images. This is always a beautiful moment for the bride and groom together.
The ceremony was beautiful and filled with love and laughter.
Debby shared a story about how Sam and Aimee had met at the Great Northern Hotel in Kempsey and everyone was smiling.

Just like that, the ceremony was finished. Sam and Aimee had Aimee's grandmother and brother sign their marriage certificate as witnesses. We paused to congratulate Sam and Aimee as they walked down the aisle hand in hand as a family.
The bridal party all piled into the utes and we made our way down towards Hat Head Creek Bridge where we had organised to take some photos to remember the day that was Sam and Aimees.
Sam and Aimee ended their wedding day surrounded by friends and family.
