Nicole + Mike
{Willow Creek Homestead London Ontario Wedding Photography}

I loved every minute of this wedding! Nicole and Mike are one of the sweetest & most fun couples around! Willow Creek is one of my new fave locations for weddings - the photo opportunites there were limitless! 

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less:  Country Rustic Charm, Relaxed and Fun!

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride:  Everything!!!  Marrying my best friend finally after 12 years together and uniting further our beautiful family of three.
Groom:  Seeing Nicole for the first time and my truck burn out photo shoot of course.

Best wedding related decision:  We didn't have room in the budget for a professional videographer so we had a good friend do some filming for us and I loved seeing all the behind the scenes footage and reactions.

Favourite detail: All my DIY projects in the space, it's like watching a beautiful dream come to life and my personal touches were attached to almost everything.

Advice for future brides & grooms:  Take every second in, it really does go by too quickly and don't sweat the small stuff. Also make sure you hire a really excellent photograher like...oh I dont know....HRM?!?

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I wouldn't change a thing, but I probably would hire a day of coordinator. We pulled it off collectively but in a few situations it would have helped things run a little smoother with so many different wedding vendors working together.

Best surprise of the day:  Seeing Mikes reaction while I  was walking down the aisle (so many tears)

Julia + Chad
{Bellamere Winery London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Julia & Chad's wedding was absolutely picture perfect!!! You really can't go wrong with a wedding at Bellamere Winery! We had such a wonderful time capturing this couple's beautiful day! 

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photographer}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Rustic, but Elegant

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day? 
Bride: Chad and I wrote letters to one another to read the morning of our wedding and having that moment of reading what he wrote was a unforgettable moment and made me even more excited to walk down the isle and see Chad for the first time. Also being able to celebrate the day with close friends and family. 
Groom: Seeing Julia walk down the aisle. I did not know what she had chosen for a wedding dress and she was absolutely beautiful. Made me feel like the luckiest person in the room. 

Best wedding related decision: Choosing Bellamere (They took care of almost everything for us, so we did not feel stress on the wedding day). They thought of things that we didn't even think of, and went above and beyond to help make the day perfect and for us to be able to enjoy and celebrate with our family and friends.

Favourite detail: Centre pieces with the floral arrangements. Not many people would know this but the reason there was a tea cup added to the centre pieces was to represent Julia's grandmother.  Her Grandma had recently passed and it was a small detail to make Julia feel like her grandma was still present.  Also Julia had worn her grandmothers ring, which was also her something old and blue. The entire atmosphere and look of Bellamere is also a key reason on why we chose to get married there. 

Advice for future brides & grooms: Do what you have envisioned for your day and do what is most important to the two of you.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? No

Best surprise of the day: Having everything run so smoothly. You always get told that something may not go exactly the way you pictured it, but our day was perfect. 

Anything else you'd like to add: Thank you to HRM Photography, especially Heather and Becky. They did an amazing job. We had so much fun doing all of our pictures and you can really tell how passionate and excited they were to capture special moments of our day.
