Earlier this year Leilla and Phil were married in Zanzibar, Tanzania, and while I was unable to photograph that incredible event, I did photograph the reception they hosted for their friends and family at the Orange Gallery in Ottawa. Their guests were treated to a short film from their wedding celebration in Africa at the gallery, then their was some live music, a limbo competition, and a display of sparklers in the rain. It was a fantastic way to end this year’s wedding season for me. Enjoy!

Congratulations Leilla and Phil!

Dana and Phil’s wedding was one of the most intimate weddings I have ever photographed. It started by packing a dozen or so guests into the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral in the Byward Market, then trudging across town for a typical wedding meal at Beckta Dining and Wine restaurant (typical = amazing at Beckta)! I even got to sample a bottle of 2003 Dom Perignon champaign. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday if you ask me.

I had the honour of photographing my friends Kerry and Brent’s wedding earlier this month in Kitchener, Ontario. I worked with Kerry at the Ottawa Sun more than a few years ago and they pair held a unique and intimate wedding at Homer Watson House in Kitchener. All of the details were very personal to them, including the bride’s bouquet which was made of newspapers from the day they got engaged. Congratulations you two!

Thanks to Heather and Craig, I can finally say that I have shot a wedding at Stonefields Heritage Farm in Carleton Place! Ever since the proprietors Stephanie and Steve opened the farm for weddings a few years ago, I have desperately wanted to shoot there. It is a great farm setting that is not overrun with hokum – finally! There are no rusty wagon wheels, hay bales, tree swings; just simple, elegant, contemporary-country elements. Heather and Craig surrounded themselves with all of the people who helped shape their lives and that love really comes through in the photos. Stonefields know how to make their clients feel loved and I can’t wait to shoot there again.

Congratulations Heather and Craig!

Jaime and David are many things; marathon runners, triathletes, iron-people. Now they are married! Despite a bit of rain, Code’s Mill in Perth, was a great venue for this particular gathering os super-fit and super-intelligent individuals. It was the first time that I have heard a groom refer to his wife as a two-headed horse, but I am reasonably sure it was an inside joke and that he did not end up sleeping on the patio. Congratulations Jaime and David!
