I seem to have just the worst luck when it comes to weddings at Andrew Haydon Park. And just so we’re clear, by that I mean the worst luck with the weather at weddings here. I have shot many here now and literally all but one have endured a rather wet, rainy day. And even the one that didn’t get rain, got an intense heat wave (to the degree that people were started to feel ill despite the copious amounts of water we had around).
But despite the less than ideal weather conditions, Annie + Chris didn’t let it get them down for too long as they definitely made the most of the day and our time together!
I have had such a great time with Annie + Chris this summer as I have been fortunate enough to not only capture their engagement session, but also their engagement party. Both days were absolutely lovely and it was such a joy to be around this wonderful couple and their incredibly thoughtful family. But I must admit, that their wedding day was my favourite time we have gotten to spend together. The love and happiness that surrounded everyone all day long was absolutely infectious (which I really is a rather dangerous word to use these days)! And thankfully that nasty rain let up long enough for these two beautiful souls to get married and also get some photos around the park.
And I have come to realize that I have my favourite spots in pretty much every location as I instantly found myself heading over to the little wooden bridges and forested areas on the far side of Andrew Haydon Park, with a quick stop back at the bandshell after everything was cleaned up of course. But I am pretty certain these two could do wonders with literally any location as they are just naturals in front of the camera and truly made my job easy!
Thanks to all of these amazing vendors who helped make this wedding possible!
