Rose and Bennett both worked for the same accounting firm and didn’t know each other, and they both lived around the corner from each other in London, England when they both worked overseas and still didn’t know each other. It wasn’t until they were introduced at a work reunion that they finally met! Rose and Bennett are such a lovely couple, they love to make each other laugh and are so kind and caring toward their Family, Friends and any one who enters their lives…
Their wedding day began at The Windsor Arms Hotel in Toronto, it was an overcast March day the rain held off but the winds were definitely wild!
Bennett getting ready and getting “into the zone”…
Rose and Bennett had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony in the morning…here is Rose trying on her veil in anticipation for the Church Ceremony afterward…
I love it when a couple opts to go for the “First Look”, it always makes for an amazing photo opportunity and also puts the couple a little more at ease when they are at the actual Ceremony.
After the Tea Ceremony, the Bridal Party refueled for the long day with a Hero Burger Power Lunch!
The Vera Wang gown ready for the Church Ceremony…
Rose’s Reception Gown was a stunning sapphire blue, and check out the amazing shoes she wore for the Ceremony and Reception….Elegant and Blingtastic at the same time…
You are one gorgeous Bride, Rose…
The girls headed to the Church in a super cute London Cab that was rented as an homage to the cabs back on the “other side of the pond”….it definitely turned lots of heads as everyone checked it out, pointed to it and snapped photos!
Check out the adorable Flower Girl…too cute!
These black and white photos are from their “5 Minute Married Moment” (my own term, you like?) – I also recommend it to all my clients. It’s the first 5 minutes after you come down the aisle, we whisk you away immediately after the Ceremony to a private room or outside where we don’t direct you, we just photograph both of you for about 5 minutes together – looking into your new Husband’s eyes and let you both just be in and feel the moment. Every one of my couples find this is such an intimate and exciting time and a great way to capture some emotional photos…
In the London cab…
I mentioned it was a super windy day, but it made for some fabulous veil photos…
This is my absolute favourite photo of Rose from the entire day, she is graceful, regal and just downright gorgeous!
They had a great wedding party who braved the cold for photos and kept us all laughing…
Their guests loved to dance and the Party was in full swing – can you see me in the reflection of the mirror on the wall as I took the dance floor photo?
A much-deserved rest after such a wonderful Wedding Day!
Rose and Bennett, I wish both of you and your Families all the best for the future – you two are definite soul mates and I know your love is just going to continue to grow. Thank you so much for selecting me to photograph this very special time in your lives it was such an honour, and that veggie Hero Burger really helped me through the epic day! xoxo Corina
