Newmarket Wedding Photographer | Civil Ceremony


Carol & Aaron’s Wedding

How They Met

Aaron’s best friend Eric, lived across the street from Carol. Carol met Eric, and he invited her over one day to hang out, and she met Aaron. Carol and Aaron didn’t see each other until the next year. Then, they exchanged phone numbers and went on their first date the next week. Their first date was at St. Louis Wings Bar & Grill.

The Proposal

Three and a half years after their first date, Carol and Aaron went on a weekend vacation to Niagara Falls to celebrate their birthdays. They took a ride on the skywheel, and when they reached the top, Aaron proposed!

The Wedding

Getting Ready

Carol got ready at her mother’s house in Newmarket – and yes, as you’ll see in the photos below, she wore a light pink wedding dress!

The Ceremony

Carol and Aaron had a civil ceremony, at the Newmarket Municipal offices. It was a lovely ceremony, with a few family and friends in attendance. The ceremony was officiated by the always awesome, Carmel Goodman.

The Newlyweds!

After the ceremony, we went behind the municipal building into the gardens and did some family photos. After that, the guests all went off to Cachet Restaurant where the reception was going to be held, while the newlyweds and I went next door to Fairy Lake, and took some photos of the two of them together.

Carol & Aaron’s Sneak Peeks

Carol and Aaron just got home from their honeymoon in Las Vegas, so it’s time to share some sneak peeks from their fabulous Newmarket wedding!

They had a civil ceremony at the Town of Newmarket municipal offices, and then after some photos near Fairy Lake, they had their wedding reception at Cachet Restaurant in Newmarket – a place I’ve driven past practically daily for the past 6 years but have never gone into until last week!

Carol wore a light pink wedding dress, and was as gorgeous as a “Barbie doll” (her words 😉 ). She looked amazing, and I’m sure Aaron thought so too when he first saw her coming down the aisle!

Markham Wedding Photographer | Civil Ceremony

Iryna & Tom

As I said in Iryna and Tom’s sneak peek post, Iryna and Tom had a small civil ceremony at the Markham Civic Centre. These two make my heart so happy! They were high school sweethearts, dated until college, then went their separate ways. 10 years later, they re-connected and have been together ever since!

Prior to the ceremony, Iryna and Tom wanted to do a First Look and have all their bride and groom photos done beforehand. The problem was that Iryna and Tom live together, and they didn’t think they could sneak around each other without catching a glimpse of each other before it was time. “Nonsense!”, I said! “We can make it work!”

They did co-ordinating on their end by (I can only assume) yelling through walls at each other if they had to pass by. Once Iryna got her hair and make-up done, I think she just hid in their bedroom and shut the door. Tom left first, and waited in his truck outside. Then I came by and picked up Iryna (that’s right, Markham wedding photographer and bridal chauffeur – I do it all!), and we drove a short way over to Toogood Pond Park. Iryna stayed in my car while Tom and I scouted out a nice spot, and then I went back and got Iryna – and the First Look was completed! I’m happy to say it all worked out!

There are tons of great spots all around Toogood Pond Park, and as luck would have it, it was a perfectly overcast day (my favourite kind of natural lighting!), which not only gave us perfect light, but also some awesome-looking dramatic cloud cover!

It was threatening to rain (but luckily it didn’t until after the ceremony!), but Iryna came prepared with her most-awesome red-trimmed clear umbrella! She totally rocked her red and white colour scheme, accenting her white dress with her red shoes, nail polish, lip colour, bouquet and umbrella!

Tom was giving off a very suave Daniel Craig/James Bond vibe, and he totally rocked it!

Look at these two, the camera LOVES them!

I just love their wedding ring set! Absolutely gorgeous!

The chapel at the Markham Civic Centre is probably my favourite of all the civil ceremonies that I’ve photographed in the York Region area. It’s actually ON the water, but it’s quaint and cozy, and you have to walk through a little tunnel to get in there, which is kind of cool!

Around the edges of the interior you can see through the floor to the water below, and there is a ledge that runs all around the inside that I took advantage of and stood on, to get a higher viewpoint.

I just can’t say enough good things about Iryna and Tom! They were SO much fun to work with! I am so happy that I got to witness and document their first day as Husband and Wife! Congrats you two!

Toogood Pond Park Wedding Photos | Markham Wedding Photographer | Tom & Iryna’s Sneak Peeks!

Now that Tom and Iryna are back from their amazing honeymoon in Aruba, I thought I would post some sneak peeks from their perfect day!

Tom and Iryna got married at civil ceremony at the Markham Civic Centre. Before the ceremony however, we went to Unionville’s Toogood Pond Park (a short drive from the Markham Civic Centre), to take some photos of the soon-to-be-married couple!

I love Toogood Pond Park because it’s a small(ish) park, but there are gorgeous spots everywhere to take photos! It was threatening to rain which gave us the MOST amazing cloud cover (light-wise), but the rain held off until everything was done and I was driving home! It was PERFECT!

The fallen leaves on the bridge in that first photo made me think of the beautiful autumn colours that are coming soon, so I made a little tweak to it. (Iryna & Tom, you will be getting both versions!)

I can’t decide which version I like better. Feel free to comment and let me know which version you prefer!

Tom and Iryna are SO much fun, so easy to work with, and just all-around awesome!! I feel so lucky to have been part of their special day!

Kelly & Kyle’s Intimate Newmarket Civil Ceremony

Kelly and Kyle had a wonderful intimate Newmarket civil ceremony, with their 4 children.

Kelly wore an absolutely stunning dress made by her favourite designer, Melanie Lyne. If I didn’t know better I would have thought that this dress was MADE for her – she looked incredible!

Kelly and Kyle – here are a couple sneak peeks for you guys! 🙂
