Wedding Photography St Justin’s Parish and Highland Golf and Country Club

 Wedding Photography St Justin’s Parish and Highland Golf and Country Club

It has been 2 years since Chantelle and Jamie’s wedding. I was pretty good last year with remembering to blog around the 1st anniversary of each wedding we photographed but with the Best of 2016 blogs last year I am guessing this one slipped through. I really wanted to get it up on the blog though as they are some of my fave clients, looking at these photos they now have another member of their family and their little ones here have grown up so much! It was a great team on the day, Zandy Cakes is my go-to cake designer and Lavish and Music Central are some of my fave vendors and with the awesome venues I just had to get this up on the blog! The day started with getting ready shots with the lovely hair and makeup and we even got a sprinkling of snow as the girls were heading to the ceremony- the saying has to go for snow too right- that it is lucky on your wedding day. After their ceremony, receiving line and family photos we headed to the civic gardens complex which provided a great spot for photos- especially with the setting sun and how cold it was! After the photos we headed to the highland for a few more and for the reception. Some of you might even recognize their hot cocco stand painting as the one I use in my xmas mini sessions!

Masonic Centre St Thomas Wedding Photography

It is almost Jaclyn and Chris’ 1st anniversary and I thought I’d share the pages from their album to celebrate here on the blog! They are such a sweet couple and Jaclyn’s first look with her dad was certainly a highlight for me to capture. It was a freezing cold day but their wedding party were great taking photos outside and we even took a shot outside with an ice cream with Jaclyn and Chris. The night photo with the snow thrown by the best man and groomsman was remarkable with the word ‘love’ spelt out in the snow!

New Years Eve Wedding Photography London Ontario

New Years Eve Wedding Photography London Ontario

It is coming up to Tarryn and Adam’s 1st anniversary, they were married on New Years Eve and had a christmas theme as they both love christmas. They also incorporated other parts of their personalities into their day with having Disney incorporated- I just loved the beauty and the beast rose decorations and showing their love of video games with the companion cube from portal. It was the perfect wedding for Clara and I to photograph on New Years Eve as we had photographed their best man/ maid of honour’s wedding in the past so it was like meeting back up with friends. We loved capturing their first look in front of the christmas tree and creative lighting to make some dramatic images and capture the balloon drop at midnight!

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!
