Leanne + Robert
{Windermere Manor London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Leanne & Robert are the sweetest couple! Their wedding day was full of thoughtful personal touches - from Leanne's special journal she gave to Rob as a gift, his surprise seranade to her at the reception, a video game station and of course, a light saber for their night time photos! We loved every minute of this beautiful day! 

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Classic, elegant, black-tie – a champagne gala

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: The moment I looked up and saw Rob waiting to marry me. I will never forget that feeling of finding him smiling back at me as I walked down the aisle.
Groom: The grand entrance. I got to walk into a room with all the people I love most in the world, with my new bride on my arm and the Star Wars main theme playing triumphantly. Doesn’t get much better. 

Best wedding related decision:
Getting a videographer
Groom: Getting a pool table

Favourite detail:
Bride: Gold cutlery
Groom: Mario holding a rose/ my lightsaber

Advice for future brides & grooms:
It all goes by much too quickly, stop and soak it in. So many people told me this but I still feel like the day was over before I knew it.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again?
Nope, not a thing. It was perfect.

Best surprise of the day:
Being serenaded by my husband with all my favourite people in the room. I couldn’t have felt more loved.
Groom: The book of I love yous (a gift from Leanne)

Anything else you'd like to add: Best day ever!

{Windermere Manor Wedding Photography}

You'd never know from looking at these photos how chilly it was on Chelsie & Brandon's wedding day.... we were surprised with SNOW on their Oct 17th wedding day! Despite the cold, it was a beautiful fall day and we loved every minute of their wonderful wedding! Chelsie's dress was one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever seen and it was so nice to see some familiar faces in the wedding party and at the reception!

Melissa + Jordan
Windermere Manor Wedding Photography

I loved being a part of this fun couple's wedding day at Windermere Manor! Despite the rain, we had a wonderful day and were able to do the majority of their pictures outside in the beautiful fall colours!

- Heather

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: I loved being surrounded by our family and closest friends to celebrate our love and commitment to each other.  I loved our first dance together, and dancing all night long with everyone. 
Groom: Our first look and listening to the speeches written for us. 

Best wedding related decision: Choosing HRM as our photographer, and having a first look!! ‎ Our DJ was also incredible and added so much to the night.

Favourite detail:‎ I'm not sure if this is the type of detail you're looking for, as I feel like at the material details we planned I honestly didn't notice on the day of because of how much was going on.  Our DJ had us choose a song for later in the evening, and when we heard it we had to drop whatever we were doing and meet on the dance floor. This was an incredible moment for us to reconnect and remember that the day was about our love for each other.   I'm so grateful that our vendors were so well versed in the wedding industry and knew how to make our day special. 

Advice for future brides & grooms: ‎The day will fly by no matter how much you try to be in the moment. It's worth that little bit more for vendors who know what they are doing. Plan moments in advance to spend with each other throughout the day, whether it's on the dance floor, or before or after the ceremony.  Even if it's just for 5 or 10 minutes.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Can I say the weather? As it poured most of the day. Although Heather managed to use it in our photos to capture beautiful moments. Everything worked out in the end and all the hiccups just made it that much more memorable. 

Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): It is so hard to choose just one, as we love so many of them, but if we had to choose it would be our night shot out in the rain. You can see the rain pouring down, and yet it still felt so magical and we really had fun taking the photos.
