Exmouth Novotel Ningaloo Wedding - Marika & Andrew

Forgive my long delay in getting some more photos from Marika & Andrew's elopement up for you.  I wanted to wait until they had returned home after their honeymoon as they enjoyed a honeymoon away from all things computer & I wanted them to have time to see their images first.

They didn't tell anyone about their plans to get married while visiting Exmouth except for the celebrant, the Novotel staff and me.  They did things exactly the way they wanted and their happiness and excitement on the day couldn't be contained.  They were the bubbliest, gigglingest couple ever - love them!

Marika looked gorgeous for their midday Novotel Ningaloo poolside ceremony overlooking Exmouth Gulf (Andrew cleans up pretty slick, too!)

Two of the Novotel staff acted as witnesses and the happy couple also directed them in using their phone cameras so they could send out announcements to all of their friends & family!

It was hot, clear and staggeringly bright and so after their very short - 3 minutes - ceremony, we headed off in search of any shade we could find! The palm trees lining the walkways of the Novotel Ningaloo Resort gave us a few inches of shelter

They were troopers and we all loaded up in my car and headed to the local oval where we used Exmouth's only real trees to provide some sort of relief from the harsh sun & rising temperatures.

It wouldn't be a wedding in Exmouth without heading to the beach so they braved the scorching hot sand for a few minutes, too.

I think they had a fabulous wedding day!

Congratulations, Marika & Andrew - I wish you many long, happy years together! Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day!
