Bellamere Winery Ontario Wedding Photography

Bellamere Winery Ontario Wedding Photography

Angelika and Matt were married almost a year ago now and I wanted to make sure their November wedding was up on the blog! They got ready at the Delta Armouries hotel and as they didn’t have a second photographer it was great that they were both getting ready at the same location so I could run between the rooms to capture each getting ready. They were married at Our Lady of Czestochowa Polish Catholic Church in London then as it was November and they had decided they did not want to see each other before the ceremony, it was light enough just for us to get a photograph of all of their guests on the front steps of the church then head to Parkway Garden Centre who were nice enough to let us use their space for some wedding party photographs. It was then to Bellamere for some family photos followed by the reception. We had a rainy night and I loved how the night shots came out!

I had known Chantelle and Kyle for years, she was my go-to crochet outfit maker for a bunch of my newborn/ cake smash props. I photographed their family a bunch of times and was so happy when they asked me to photograph their big day. On a chilly fall day last year Clara and I captured them getting ready then their amazing first look at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. We had fun incorporating their love of superheros into their wedding party photos and their kids- the super adorable ring bearer and flower girl. The outdoor ceremony on the farm was beautiful and we were even able to get some awesome fog shots of the two newlyweds and then later in the night, dramatic rainy night photos. The reception was a lot of fun with many big moments captured and possibly the best last photo of the night ever (sorry Chantelle just had to share lol).

Thanksgiving weekend was Courtney and Matt’s 1st anniversary and while there are still yellow leaves on the trees I wanted to share their wedding blog with you. The images below are the couple’s album and it is always interesting for me to see which images that they love most. You might recognize this gorgeous couple (and wedding party) from my banners that I have at the bridal shows. I know that the puppy photo is always a hit and it probably one of my fave wedding photos I have ever taken- I honestly squealed and hugged Courtney when she told me that they still had enough puppies for each of the bridesmaids to hold.

It seems fitting that next up on the blog are Amanda and Shaun who were married right around a year ago and I just photographed their gorgeous newborn boy the other day and I’m so glad that I get to hang out with this awesome couple more now! The pic of one of their nieces throwing a pair of underwear at the other is still one of my fave moments captured! Their rustic theme was perfect with their gorgeous venue Bellamere Winery which is one of the venues I always love photographing at, even in the rain like it was this day! Luckily it cleared up long enough after the ceremony for us to take some shots with gorgeous light.

St Pauls Cathedral London Ontario Wedding

St Pauls Cathedral London Ontario Wedding

Looking back through Alex and Tyler’s wedding photos brought back so many memories for me- I had met Alex at a bridal show where she was one of the exhibitors, she contacted me when I was out in Halifax just before my wedding when she had some trouble with the photographer that she had booked and I am so glad that I was able to capture their day for them, especially with the groom and his whole side being from South Carolina so try and imagine this blog being read to you in their amazing southern drawl..
There are some seriously sweet photos below showing when Tyler’s mom gave him a special gift, the emotional moment when Alex saw her beloved dog’s collar on her bouquet- a surprise from her family. I loved all the small details like the shot gun shells on the boutineers and that Alex’s veil was made from parts of her Mom’s. Many emotional moments including first look with dad, Tyler tearing up as she walked up the aisle, brother singing (amazingly) at the ceremony and a speech by a groomsman that didn’t leave a dry eye in the whole venue, mine included- which is rare, I only cried once at my own wedding! As many emotional moments as there were, there were fun moments including not one but two motorboats, recreating her parents photograph from their wedding at St Pauls Cathedral London Ontario Wedding, saying hello to the cows at Purple Hill Country Hall (especially meaningful because I believe they met working on a ranch), they tore up the dancefloor for their first dance fun bouquet and garter too- the garter was twine just adding to the whole country feel and even had a clear enough night to get some star photos..

Excited to share Cally and Steve’s wedding from right around a year ago. I had am amazing time photographing their engagement session and had photographed Steve’s cousin’s wedding the year before so knew it was going to be a great one! It was photographed mostly at Four Points by Sheraton where the girls got ready, had the ceremony outside under the gazebo and where their gatsby themed reception was held. They both play baseball so photographing some of their formal shots at Dreamers Baseball and then some at Civic Gardens, all while on a yellow school bus in 40 degree heat, everyone were really good about the heat though and as Cally was a big Pokemon Go fan we also did Pokemon go screenshot wedding photos and our take on the  Jurassic Park shot. After some emotional speeches and night shots we captured a bunch of candids including some epic dance floor shots!

Pioneer Village Wedding Photography

Pioneer Village Wedding Photography

I loved capturing Brittany and Reed’s big day almost a year ago! The day started capturing the girls getting hair and makeup done at Nova Vita, then getting ready at one of the bridesmaids houses. Clara captured the dapper dudes getting ready then we met up at the gorgeous green space (Victoria Park) in Fanshawe Pioneer Village. I love the rustic feel of the barn and All of their personal touches were wonderful and I always love capturing emotional dads at their first look and crying grooms! The ceremony was seriously beautiful and perfect lighting for capturing the wedding party and couple photographs on the grounds at Pioneer Village. The reception in the barn was filled with plenty of sweet speeches, dances and fun sparkler shots and dramatic night time dips!

London Ontario Old Court House Wedding Photography

London Ontario Old Court House Wedding Photography

Krystle and Matt were married on a very warm June day last year. I believe it was the first of 5 weddings I shot last year where with the humidity it was over 40 degrees. I loved capturing all the little details of getting ready, especially Krystle’s lovely dress that fit her perfectly! We then headed to the Old Court House for their outdoor ceremony which had a beautiful backdrop of ivey. The bright happy summery colours with the bridesmaids dresses, polka dot groom and groomsmen’s socks and sunflowers were lovely additions. The wedding party we a calm bunch with the heat and we turned up the heat a little more with Krystle and Matt taking some shots around the Old Court House and also in Ivey Park. After all of the fun of the reception we captured a lit up night shot which they used as the whole last page of their album which can be seen in full below.

Ukrainian Club London Ontario Wedding Photography

Ukrainian Club London Ontario Wedding Photography

This week will be this fun, down to earth couples 1st anniversary and I wanted to get their relaxed day up on the blog! I feel like when I look at these photos I can hear Susanna’s booming laugh and can see Brad’s jokester attitude. After being together many years and having 2 adorable kids this couple tied the knot in Dorchester with their friends and family. I loved the purple and white theme throughout and capturing all of the candid moments and authentic laughter shared. The park at Belmont was a great spot with plenty of variety for their photos. Their reception was at Ukrainian Country Club in London and capturing their guests having fun and finishing with one of the best bouquet and garter toss’ ever with the garter not going very far at all then the scramble with legs in the air for it and the boquet toss being caught by the grooms brother who had been helping out with the kids all day, literally catching it still with a kid on his hip! I’m so excited to be photographing one of the bridesmaids intimate ceremony in June.
