Hamilton Wedding Photographer | Ancaster Mill


Jacqueline & Zade

How They Met

Jacquline and Zade met through a friend’s house party. When they first met, Jacqueline was completely mesmerized by Zade’s charm and magnetic energy. Zade knew right away, “She’s the one.”.

They didn’t actually go out anywhere for their first date, they hung out at Zade’s apartment and spent their time drinking Alize, talking, and watching TV.

Ten years later, Zade popped the question!

The Proposal

Zade devised a devious plan to propose. He woke Jacqueline up (by throwing her housecoat at her), and told her that their beloved dog, Baby, was sprayed by a skunk in the backyard. In a panic, Jacqueline got up and ran outside, only to see Baby beside a kneeling Zade, asking her to marry him.

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Jacqueline and her sister got ready in one of the bridal suites at the Ancaster Mill.

Jacqueline and Zade did a quick First Look before the ceremony, and then Jacqueline retreated back to the bridal suite, and Zade went to the outdoor ceremony area to greet the arriving guests.

The Ceremony

The Streamside Chapel at the Ancaster Mill is a beautiful place to get married! It is literally, “stream side”. Just to the right of the ceremony area there’s a little stream running through the strees, and you can hear the water strickling down the path. The birds were chirping, and it was all around a beautiful ceremony!

The Newlyweds!

The Ancaster Mill has some beautiful spots for wedding photos! My favourite of course, being the cascading waterfalls!

The Reception

The reception was held in the 1812 Room. Right after the newly married couple were announced in, they did their first dance, and then sat down to a delicious dinner!

Frances & Beth

How They Met

Frances and Beth met through a mutual friend who lives in Toronto. They had each heard of the other, and had seen each other at a couple of events, but hadn’t really had a chance to talk for over a year.

When they finally did start talking, there was an immediate attraction for both of them – They connected on many levels right away!

For their first date, they met up at a barbecue. Things took off from there, and four years later came…

The Proposal

Beth, Frances, her two daughters Jasmine and Melanie, and their dog Skipper, were on a five-day canoe trip in Algonquin Park. They were watching a beautiful sunset from their campsite, when Frances turned and asked Beth to marry her in front of Jasmine and Melanie. Beth said yes of course, and the four of them hugged, cried, and laughed. Jasmine and Melanie starting planning for the wedding at that very moment!

When I was photographing the rings, I couldn’t help but notice that the four rings elegantly symbolized their new family. I pictured the two engagement rings as Beth and Frances, and the wedding rings as Jasmine and Melanie. (I don’t normally make up little “ring families” but I liked the symbolism in this case.)

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Beth and Frances both got ready at their home. They got dressed in separate rooms, and then had a First Look in their dining room before heading over to the Holland Marsh Wineries.

The Ceremony

The ceremony was held outdoors, with DIY wooden signs scattered around the venue. It was a gorgeous sunny summer day, and a great day to get married!

I LOVE the group photo above! Right after the ceremony, the brides walked back down the aisle, followed by the five bridesmaids, and they all surrounded the brides and hugged and cheered. The photo you see above is a pure candid shot of them post-hug right after the ceremony!

The Wedding Party

The fantastic wedding party consisted of Frances’ two daughters and Beth’s three nieces. All five of them acted like sisters though, I noticed, and they really made the day all the more special for Frances and Beth.

Some photos of the gorgeous brides, of course!

The only thing I can think of to say about the reception was that it was full of love, laughter and fun!

Summit Golf Club Wedding Photographer | Richmond Hill Wedding Photographer


Melissa & Andrew’s Sneak Peeks

Melissa and Andrew live in Thunder Bay, so I didn’t actually meet either of them in-person until their wedding day! I was however, very familiar with their wedding venue. My dad has been a member of the Summit Golf Club since 1983, and since Melissa’s dad is also a member there, it was a great venue for their wedding.

Being a Summit Golf Club wedding photographer was interesting because rather than just going there for dinner or their annual Canada Day BBQ and fireworks (I’m not a golfer, ha), I was now looking at it from a photographer’s point of view. Meaning, I was looking for where the sun was, the direction of the light, the quality of the light, as well as considering the best backgrounds… all while avoiding getting hit by golf balls 😉

Jacqueline & Zade’s Sneak Peeks

You may remember Jacqueline and Zade from when they were brutally murdered during their engagement session. Well as it turns out, they both survived, and they tied the knot at their Ancaster Mill wedding this month!

They had an outdoor ceremony at the secluded and absolutely lovely streamside chapel, and then we did photos of the newlyweds after the ceremony! Zade didn’t see his bride until she walked down the aisle – but it was worth the wait, as she looked incredible!

Frances & Beth’s Sneak Peeks

I had the pleasure of photographing Frances and Beth’s Holland Marsh Winery wedding last weekend – and it was so much fun! They lucked into a beautiful, sunny day – even though the week before the weather forecast was predicting thunderstorms!

Frances and Beth are both so kind and wonderful, I just loved being able to document their special day for them!

They had an all-female wedding party (girl power, woooo!), which included Frances’ daughters, and Beth’s nieces. All five of them (and their spouses!) helped out with everything, and helped create the perfect day for Frances and Beth.
