What a truly lovely afternoon. An early summer day in the spectacular gardens of the beautiful English Inn and Resort was spent by myself and fantastic team of talent. This shoot was the inspiration of Adrienne from Pink Sugar Cupcakes. The theme was literature, antique paper and was coloured with a beautiful palette of soft creams, pale yellows, and golds, the tones added to the late afternoon sun light and cast a beautiful romantic glow over the whole scene.
The containers were wrapped with pages from antique books.
The stunning model and her lovely husband were prepped with the expert hands of Sharon Rai and the result was a stunning. She wore a beautiful headpieces made especially for the shoot by Tetrik Apparel and again incorporated pages from old books. The best part is that soon we will see how the magic of Karen McNeil and her beautiful eye captured the day and all the details. See Karen’s blog post here.

It is a special day when the talents of so many come together and create a fantastic wedding shoot. That is exactly what happened today. We shot this bounty of beauty at a stunning equestrian estate just outside the city. We started with what I consider to be one of the most beautiful flowers, the peony and chose the vibrant “coral charm” and ran from there. What resulted was nothing short of spectacular. These images are no where close to the magic that Richard and Amy McDowell from Red Leaf Studios, created today however. It gives you a taste.
The incredible team at Crumbsy’s Cupcake Cafe made the beautiful cake, cookies and cupcakes for our sweets table
Dan and Micayla from The London Chef, a fantastic catering and cooking school on Fort Street provided some amazing appetizers for our food display.
Tamara Radick of InHabit Designs did an incredible job of all the stationary and branding, and we used the double horseshoes everywhere.

Yet another beautiful wedding held at the spectacular Sea Cider. Eva and her Mom came to visit us a few months ago to talk about her flowers for her wedding. We knew we would have a great time with her when we showed her a picture of a bridal bouquet made entirely out of herbs and she loved it!
Eva is not only an accomplished photographer she is also the coordinator of the Thrifty Food’s Demonstration Kitchen, so her appreciation of using things like herbs and blackberries in her bouquet thrilled us.
We created simple yet stunning arrangements of white asters and white lisianthus for the ceremony and lovely little bud vases filled with white lisianthus for the tables. We are eagerly awaiting the images from the uber-talented Helene Cyr. For now check out a sneek peak on her blog. Here are a few on Helen’s images of Eva’s beautiful bouquet.
Love the herb’s and berries….
And finally the tables

The poet and the actor/drama teacher. Just sounds so romantic doesn’t it? And they are. Our first meeting with this great couple was a full on creative brainstorming session. The elements that the couple wanted for their wedding day were full of meaning and symbolism for them. The blackberry that was part of Ian’s boutonniere was to remind them of their first kiss beside a blackberry bush. Again Helene Cyr, captured this whole event beautifully check out her blog post about here.
The ceremony and reception took place at the beautifully relaxed and scenic Starling Lane Winery. The ceremony spot was marked with an antique table and some fabulous white orchid plants we stuffed into rustic looking galvanized metal buckets set on top of wine barrels.
Siobhan and Ian wanted a very relaxed atmosphere for their day, a fun celebration for close friends and family to recognize the love and joy they have brought to each others lives. Because words are a very important part of their lives, a special part of the day was to be a couple of old typewriters set up in the old greenhouse for guests to write their thoughts and wishes for the newlyweds.
We have heard that the party was fabulous with dancing to the wee hours and kids who didn’t want to go home. Starling Lane has so much to look at; gardens, chickens and old buildings, that it is just a perfect venue for anyone looking for a laid back, country vibe.
We are so happy to have been a part of the day and to help bring to fruition the vision for this couple.
