Another beautiful wedding and another gorgeous sun-filled day. Oh wait, that’s not how 2021 has gone at all!
It may not have been great for the weather, again, but in tried and true fashion, the couple made the most of it and didn’t let the rain get them down for one instant. Brook + Kyle took the entire day in stride and the fact that her dress was wet before they left the parking lot didn’t seem to bother Brook as she really was focused on the most important part of the day – marrying her lovely groom!
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!
If I’m being honest, I wasn’t feeling great heading to Julie + Shenfield’s wedding (don’t worry it wasn’t anything I could pass along). So much so in fact, that I brought Dave along even though he wasn’t booked for the wedding coverage. He came as backup to help carry my gear and in case I couldn’t shoot to my normal quality. Fortunately he wasn’t needed for anything other than being a pack mule, but I of course took advantage of him being there when it came to veil tosses, multi-tasking shots, and those wonderful candid images. I mean, why wouldn’t I, he was there and he is so darn good at it!
The last wedding of the season is always so bittersweet for us. We are pretty exhausted and looking forward to some time to catch up on the behind the scenes part of the business, but at the same time, we are sad because we know it will be a few months before we get to once again spend time with our couples on their wedding days. But ending it with a high note is always a good thing, and I can’t think of a better couple to wrap up our 2016 season with than Christiane + Adam.
Our absolute favourite wedding couples find us through referrals from their family and friends. Whenever a past client sends us someone from their circle, I know it is going to be amazing because we have just the most amazing clients!
So when Christiane + Adam got in touch with us I knew we had to sit down and chat about their day. And I am so glad we did, because it was absolute magic!!
