Congratulations Rosie + Courtney | Whistler, BC

I am recently back from the intimate and beautiful Whistler wedding of Rosie and Courtney:)  Despite being used to their Australian heat, they chose the frigid winter wonderland of Canada to say “I do”! I am so happy to have been a part of it all, and can’t wait to show more pictures of this epic week soon.

Mikaela + Matt | Sault Restaurant, Daylesford Australia

I have always fantasized about shooting a beautiful wedding at a beautiful lavender farm…well that dream came true when I traveled all the way to Australia to photograph Mikaela & Matt’s wedding at Sault Restaurant in Daylesford.  I don’t know where to begin… amazing couple, amazing families, amazing friends.  It all came together and I knew I was in the right place and the right time for this one.  I can’t wait to share this wedding on the blog soon, but in the meantime enjoy this little piece of gorgeous.

helena + seth | trinity chapel + george restaurant wedding

It’s hard to believe, but Helena and Seth have already spent the last 17 years of their lives with one another so we think it is safe to say that they were ready for marriage!  It was a gorgeous but HOT summer day and all the details came together beautifully despite the fact they planned their wedding from England where they reside.  Helena looked so regal and elegant in her Nicole Miller Halter Gown perfected by an exquisite Laura Jayne veil and Oscar de la Renta shoes.  She met her dashing groom, Seth outside of their hotel where they caught their first glance of one another before proceeding to stroll down Philosopher’s Walk to their ceremony location at the stunning Trinity Chapel.   Having met during school here in Toronto, it was extra special to shoot their wedding photos on the same grounds where they first fostered their love and friendship. During the ceremony the sunlight flooded the chapel with a sense of calm and serenity and 17 years in the making this was definitely the right time and the right place for Helena and Seth.  Following their sweet exchange of vows we headed to George restaurant where their guests celebrated in the Grand Georgian Room.  It was an evening filled with laughter and tears, and a beautiful first dance as husband and wife…finally! (kidding)

Congratulations Helena and Seth.  You had a beautiful wedding day from start to finish and we were honored to be part of it.
