Drew and Mike were married at a beautiful ceremony at Earnscliffe, a victorian manor overlooking the Ottawa river that once housed Canada’s first Prime Minister. Currently Earnscliffe is the home of the British High Commissioner to Canada. We had never shot a wedding there before, and it was a real treat. The building is grand, and the grounds are lush and lovely.
Our day with Grace and Ray started at the Westin hotel, with the bridesmaids making the groomsmen pay for every step they took towards seeing Grace (see awkward lipstick photos below). The ceremony took place at Southminster church, and the reception at the National Gallery.
It makes such a difference when couples allot a few extra hours for photographs, and Grace and Ray did just that. We were all over the gallery, inside and out, wedding party and family in-tow.
It was a real pleasure documenting the special day of two people as fun, kind, and adventurous as Grace and Ray were!
