Church Wedding Ceremony

Samantha + Martel
{Windermere Manor London Ontario Wedding Photography}

What a fun day this was! Martel's whole family and many friends traveled from Bermuda to London, Ontario for this special day! Samantha & Martel have a whirlwind love story: they met in Bermuda and had a beautiful long distance relationship that turned into happily ever after! Samantha's love for Disney made its appearance throughout the wedding in small little touches from the decor, cake and her fairytale dress! Their wedding party was a fun bunch who made the day a blast to capture and the happy couple are so adorable - we couldn't be happier with the images and memories we captured for them!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Disney, fairytale, princess, castle, magical 

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: all the speeches made were amazing and the dance mash up with my dad was by far the best thing
Groom: My favourite part lol the look on her face when I went for the garter. I also really enjoyed the speeches. 

Best wedding related decision: we decided to go with paper florals for all the bouquets, boutonierres, and corsages as now they are all keepsakes for everyone 

Favourite detail: the beauty and the beast cake and cake topper 

Advice for future brides & grooms: Everything really does work out in the end the way it's supposed to so don't fret. Also, make sure to have someone, such as the coordinator, on top of the order and proceedings and that's the schedule is followed. We almost missed cutting our cake and when we did remember it was rushed and no one saw us cut it because our secondary coordinator was not around! 

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I would take some more time to spend with people at the wedding. I never got a chance to see everyone especially my own family, to stop and chat and just see how everyone is doing.

Best surprise of the day: Martel's garter removal dance

Kim + Brian
{Pearson Convention Center Brampton Ontario Wedding Photography}

Kim, Brian and their wedding party were such a fun bunch to work with and be around! Rain threatened all day, but stayed clear in the afternoon for their photo session at the beautiful Adamson Estates. The light was just perfect and we got some amazing shots! When the rain finally did arrive, we snuck out from their reception for some quick picures in the rain!

- Niki {Brampton Wedding Photographer}

Groom: having my groomsmen together getting ready at my home, our first dance as husband and wife and bringing Sonny's burgers to Uncle Steve.

Best wedding related decision: booking amazing photographers (Niki and Matt you both were exceptional! Also, videographers to capture our day. Our same day edit was worth the expense!

Favourite detail: PINLIGHTING

Advice for future brides & grooms: Take five minutes before your reception begins to soak it all in. It's been a hectic morning and you may not have had an opportunity to see the vision for your venue unfold. Take in the moment because people will wait for you. Do this together so you can appreciate all the time and planning that has gone into such an amazing day. Don't sweat the small stuff. Things will not go according to your plan but only you two will notice. 

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? 
Kimberley: I would have appreciated more time in the morning. It was so chaotic rushing to the church that we missed out on things at home. 
Brian: not a single thing!

Best surprise of the day: 
Kimberley: that the weather held out! It looked as if it was threatening to rain ALL DAY! Thankfully it only rained in the evening. The timing gave us such a breathtaking nighttime shot!
