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

Sally + Tomas
{City Hall London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Sally & Tom were a joy to photograph! They have such a fun & relaxed vibe about them! Their wedding ceremony was on the roof of London's city hall with their closest friends and family, it was an amazing view of the forest city. We then went back to Sally's parent house where they had a casual post ceremony gathering. The highlight was when I saw the inflatable swans in the pool, and joked to Sally if she was going to get on it, she said no and then just as I was about to head out she jumped right on it! The best!!

Renee + Lewis

When I first met with Renee and she told me that she and Lewis planned on having their reception at one of my fave pubs, the Morissey House, I knew I just had to photograph their wedding day! Their wedding was just the right mix of quirky & romantic and suited their relationship perfectly! I loved this day!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Classic, romantic, elegant, intimate

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Other than the fact that I got to marry my best friend, my favourite memory happened at the end of the night. The DJ played the last song (Elton John’s “Your Song” as per our request) and Shawn and I started to dance together. All of our remaining friends and family (there were at least 30 people) linked arms surrounding us and just started swaying. It was totally spontaneous and just the feeling of being together with all of our friends with us was amazing.
Groom: Easy! It was the moment I saw her standing at the end of the aisle. I’ll remember that moment for the rest of my life.

Best wedding related decision: It’s hard to choose just one, so we’ll name a couple of things.  First of all, the decision to keep the wedding small and intimate. It is a busy day, but we were able to spend time with all of our family and friends! And of course, our AMAZING vendors really made the day come together and truly went above and beyond to ensure that the day ran smoothly– We highly recommend all of them 

Favourite detail: The flowers were absolutely beautiful! Despite having our quote from our florist/decorator which detailed the different types of flowers that were in the arrangements, we didn’t really know what they were going to look like. Russell is so talented and the bouquets and centre pieces were stunning! Our guests were so excited to take them home at the end of the night/the next day!

Advice for future brides & grooms: At some point during the day, take a moment with your spouse and just take it all in. Appreciate all the people that have come to celebrate with you, the décor, the music, and (most importantly) the person next to you.  

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? The day ran so smoothly! There is really nothing we would have changed! 

Best surprise of the day: Just seeing everything come together so beautifully! 

Anything else you'd like to add: HRM was so wonderful to work with. They were professional, fun and such a calming presence on a busy day! We can’t imagine going with anyone else for wedding photography.
