Winter Wedding Photography London Ontario
I met with a lovely couple today who have their end of fall/coming into winter wedding booked with me and we were talking about the schedule of the day and how it is impacted by the setting sun in the winter months. It got me thinking that I should do a post with a few of the things I mentioned to them.
For winter weddings, I always recommend a first look, this means we can capture your genuine emotions right up close with one another, and you are able to do the photographs in the sun, without having to make your ceremony too early. However, I think it is completely up to the couple as to if this is something they want to do and this lovely wedding of Laura and Ryan back in Feburary 2015 still hasn’t been blogged and I thought it was a great one for demonstrating a great winter wedding schedule for couples who don’t want to see each other before the ceremony for a first look.
Laura and Ryan met online and I could just tell by the way they look and laugh with each other that they are a perfect match! We captured their final getting ready moments and 1pm ceremony at the Village Green Community Church, after their ceremony and receiving line we captured many groupings of friends and family which was of course helped by the detailed shot list. We captured these, and some of the wedding party underneath an arch that the couple had set up, it is a very good idea to have an indoor option in the colder months for these types of photographs. Clara and I then headed with the wedding party to Civic Gardens for some winter wonderland photographs. It was quite a cold day so didn’t spend too much time outside, but we were still able to get a large variety by divide and conquering, which we were able to do as there were two photographers. We all then headed to the London Ukraninian Centre for their reception surrounded by many of their family and friends. Their reception kicked off around 530 and we captured all the important moments- all the way until we heard the cha cha slide 🙂
