Laura + John
{Bellamere Winery London Ontario Wedding Photography}

What a beautiful day Laura and John had! The weather was just perfect and I love how they incorporated their dog Paisley, she was so adorable! When I saw that Laura had a Hayley Paige dress, I was so excited to see it, and of course she rocked that dress and looked gorgeous! Congrats to the lovely couple, can't wait to see what the future hold for you both!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: rustic, elegant, enchanted forest, summery 
What are you favourite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Too many! The first look, saying our vows, sitting in our beautiful reception room with just the two of us (and Niki!) sharing mashed potatoes before our guests came in, taking sunset pictures 
Groom: The first look , the ceremony, the speeches, dancing. 
Best wedding related decision: The venue and all the venders we hired, including HRM Photography and Niki! 
Favourite details: The seating chart (Letters by Leesh) and all the flowers (Russell Rossini) 
Advice for future brides & grooms: The day goes by so fast! Before you know it, it will be over! Spend a few moments together alone throughout the day and just enjoy the bliss. Also, do not skip the videographers! There were moments that we missed (ex. our hilarious flower girl entrance) or moments that we want to relive over and over again. 
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We would not change a thing - it was perfect. 
Best surprise of the day: How beautiful and stunning the reception room was all decorated. It was better than we ever expected. Thank you Russell! 
Favorite HRM picture from the day: So hard to just choose just one favourite! If I have to choose one, our walking back down the aisle picture! Our ceremony was done and we were over the moon happy. We were relaxed and thrilled with how the day was going so far - a favourite moment. 
Anything else you'd like to add: We can not thank Bellamere and our vendors enough for giving us the wedding day of our dreams. They were all so amazing and a pleasure to work with.  No regrets!

Lindi + Ryan
{Bellamere WInery London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Many people get caught up with the idea of "fall colours" in their photos.... but my true favorite time of year for any outdoor images? November!!! There is something so magical about that November glow and Lindi and Ryan had it in spades!! This wonderful couple are as stylish as they are sweet and we had a great time photographing their November wedding at Bellamere Winery!

Sonia + Noel
{Bellamere Winery London Ontario Wedding Photography}


I just love this couple so much!!! Since their gorgeous wedding two (!!!) years ago, their family has grown with the addition of their adorable daughter and I've been so lucky to document the continuation of their love story with newborn pictures as well as a 4 generation session with Sonia, her mom, grandma and daughter!! Their wedding at Bellamere Winery was absolutely picture perfect - no surprise as Sonia has worked in the wedding industry herself!

Groom: Seeing Sonia for the first time in her dress.
