Almonte Backyard Wedding: Mariah + Benjamin

Almonte-Agriculture-Hall-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyMariah + Benjamin’s day was pretty much a perfect day! From their stunning backyard ceremony to the incredibly heartwarming (and tear-jerking) moments during their reception, I honestly can’t think of a single thing that could possibly need changing, and that takes into consideration the fact that the bride took a wee tumble down a hill during family portraits (luckily she was neither hurt nor was her dress dirtied).

Happy Anniversary Sarah + Anders

Ottawa Backyard Wedding Stephanie Beach PhotographyIt seems weird to say that an entire year has passed since¬†we were lucky enough to photograph Sarah + Anders’ wedding day. That’s ¬†right, it was a year ago that we were and tromping through the mud, looking for the nearest umbrella or canopy for our subjects, and just generally trying to keep our gear dry. In other words, it was an amazing wedding and I would redo every sopping minute of it in a heartbeat.

Ottawa Backyard Wedding: Sarah + Anders

Ottawa Backyard Wedding Stephanie Beach PhotographyI have always loved England. Seriously, ever since I was little I have loved everything about the country across the pond. I love their food, culture, television, sense of humour, history, landscapes, and of course, I love their accent. I have made two big trips to England, and have loved every single second of both of those trips and I would go back in a heartbeat if I was given the chance. So when I met Sarah + Anders last year to chat about their upcoming wedding, I was super pumped to find out they were planning on incorporating aspects from her home country into their big day. One of those details was actually Sarah’s dress which was from a shop in England she used to walk past most weekends when she was younger.

Ottawa Backyard Wedding: Sarah + Anders, Sneak Peek

It rained on their wedding day. In fact, at times it absolutely poured. But despite all of the unpleasant weather, Sarah + Anders’ wedding day was simply stunning.

They met through friends over 5 years ago when she was backpacking across Canada. It truly was love at first sight and as soon as Sarah returned to England, she got her Visa and came right back so they could be together. The everlasting love the two of them shared was crystal clear and so lovely to witness.
