Hockley Valley Wedding Photos | Orangeville Wedding Photographer


Shannon & Kyle’s Sneak Peeks

I knew Shannon and Kyle’s Hockley Valley wedding photos would be different, because this time, the bride was my sister! Shannon has always been unique – hilarious, random, and a bit crazy. 😉

Above (right), yes, that’s my daughter wearing a hotdog costume. Sadly it wouldn’t fit over Shannon’s wedding dress (she owns the costume), but I’d say it was definitely the highlight of the reception!

Anyway, I’m getting ahead of myself!

Shannon and Kyle got married at the Hockley Valley Resort in Mono, Ontario (15 minutes from of Orangeville). It was a HOT summer July day, and the weather forecast wasn’t looking good…

But by some miracle, the rain held off and we had clear skies until later in the evening! (The heat was still pretty brutal though! I’d say 2nd only to the heat on Sabrina & Mason’s wedding day!)

I was Shannon’s matron of honour (and wedding day coordinator, I had my video camera on a tripod that I was moving around, and my 3 kids were there so I had to play “mom”, as well as “dance mom” with some costume changes since my kids did 2 performances during the reception – I wore a lot of hats that day!), so Julie from Julie Broadbent Photography came out and shot most of the day for me up until the beginning of the reception, when my matron of honour duties were over, and I could take over the photography. (I’m doing all the post-processing.) Julie was the perfect photographer for the job, as she knows Hockley Valley Resort like the back of her hand, and was just generally wonderful! Thank you Julie!!

Shannon and Kyle got married outdoors, under the lovely draped tent on the Montclair Patio, and the reception was held in the Aida ballroom.

As it turns out, my daughter is quite the partier. She danced until the reception ended at 1am, and then she helped us clean up!

King’s Riding Wedding Photographer | King City Wedding Photographer


Sharon & Ryan’s Sneak Peeks

I had the best time at Sharon and Ryan’s King’s Riding wedding! They had their ceremony at St. John’s Chrysostom Parish in Newmarket, then they had their reception at King’s Riding Golf Club in King City. I love King’s Riding because there are so many great photo spots, and the staff are fantastic!

Sharon and Ryan are so wonderful – plus as an added bonus, Sharon is hilarious and being around her just makes you happy. At one point near the end of the day, she told me that her guests were wonderful, and she didn’t regret inviting any of them, so that’s always good! haha

Sharon and Ryan had two groomsmen, two bridesmaids, and two junior bridesmaids at their wedding. They’re a great group!

As I mentioned earlier, King’s Riding has lots of great photo locations (I just love shooting there!), and Sharon and Ryan lucked into a beautiful day!

I really like the photo below on the right for some reason. Foreshadowing perhaps? 😉 It’s kind of like a “stages of life” photo. ha.

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.

Caledon Wedding Photographer | Elegant Rustic, Circus Acrobat, Canada 150 Wedding


Danielle & Kyle’s

Danielle and Kyle got married on Canada 150 this summer! They didn’t actually know it was Canada’s 150th birthday when they set their date, but it worked out – and it was certainly a big celebration! Spoiler alert: Danielle and Kyle’s wedding was AWESOME. Even cooler than this Caledon wedding photographer could have imagined! They had an antique Ford Model T car, acrobats, aerial silk dancer, a contortionist, farm animals, hay bales, an old log cabin, not one but TWO barns (including a “bar barn”), an old english telephone booth, a vintage carriage (which we didn’t end up using for photos, but it was still cool) and *drum roll*…. an ice cream truck!!!!

As easy as it would have been to have a “Canada 150 Wedding”, they didn’t go that route. Though Danielle did have her toes painted red with a Maple Leaf, and Kyle was wearing Canada-themed socks, that’s about the extent of the Canada-specific celebrations went. Really I would have to say that the ceremony was an “elegant rustic” theme, while the reception was more of a “circus acrobat” theme

How They Met

Danielle and Kyle met at Wynn Fitness, where Danielle worked. She was working at the juice bar, and Kyle was working out in the gym. Danielle used to offer Kyle free samples of smoothies, which he always declined. One day, a friend of Danielle’s offered to buy Kyle a Gatorade (this friend knew that Danielle had a huge crush on Kyle) and the three of them striked up a conversation. Kyle and Danielle eventually got to talking, and he said he had an old school Camaro, and Danielle asked to go for a ride. They went on their first official date to Tu Casa Restaurant, and were engaged 3.5 years later!

The Proposal

Danielle came home from work, opened the door, and Kyle was standing. He had candles, a bottle of wine and plant on the table beside him (all of which they already had). Kyle opened his laptop and there was a PowerPoint display, explaining how he loves Danielle and wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He then got down on one knee and asked her to marry him. Danielle, of course, said yes!

The Wedding

The entire wedding took place at Danielle’s father’s house. It was a great setup for a wedding! They had an outdoor ceremony in front of an old log cabin (which was a bit risky because it lightly rained on and off for a bit, but it stopped raining just in time!). The reception was held in the main barn on the property. The barn next to the main barn was the “Bar barn” where the drinks were served.

Getting Ready

The girls got ready in the house. Since it was raining on and off during this part of the day, I opted to do most of the detail photos indoors. (Well, except the shoe photos, I did those on the covered porch.)

During a “rain break”, I did get Danielle’s dress hung up on the porch of the house for some photos – I just love how they turned out!

Danielle’s bridesmaids helped her get ready, and it was impressive to me because I didn’t have to pose or “stage” anything! They were just doing their thing (perfectly photogenically might I add!) naturally! It’s rare and awesome for me as a Caledon wedding photographer when this happens.

Look at these two! Ready to get hitched! Danielle had Kyle choose his own suit, and it was to be a surprise for her – so at this point she had no idea what he was going to show up in!
Caledon wedding photos by Caledon wedding photographer, Jennifer Newberry Photography www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

The Ceremony

Danielle was driven across the property by her father, in his old Ford Model T antique car. (It was quite the effort to stuff that huge wedding gown in there! lol).

Often when I see dads escorting their brides down the aisle, they generally have a very stoic or serious look on their faces. I love how Danielle’s dad was all smiles! (And any guy I’ve photographed, knows how happy I was with the “hand in pocket” lol!)
Caledon outdoor wedding photos by Caledon wedding photographer, Jennifer Newberry Photography www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager
Since Danielle and Kyle didn’t do a First Look, the first time Kyle saw his bride was when she walked down the aisle with her father. I always love to do the shot above (right), as it captures the groom’s face as he watches his bride come down the aisle!

Wooden benches were set-up for the guests to watch the ceremony, and they (was it Kyle? I think so, but I might be wrong) built a platform for them and the officiant to stand on during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds went back to the antique car and got in the back, and Danielle’s father escorted them back up to where the reception & cocktail hour was going to take place.

The Wedding Party

Although the wedding party didn’t stand up with Danielle and Kyle during the ceremony (they were sitting in the front rows), they certainly were still a big part of their day!

Little Clarke was a most adorable flower girl!

The Newlyweds!

I suppose now is a good time to mention that Danielle is a professional acrobat! When I asked what was the most important photo they wanted taken, she said “Me doing a handstand in my dress” – and so, that was the very first “Bride and groom” photo we did!
Caledon wedding photos by Caledon wedding photographer, Jennifer Newberry Photography www.jnphotography.ca @filemanager

I’m going to pause here for a moment just to mention, that while Danielle, Kyle and I were doing their photos, the guests were enjoying drinks and appetizers at cocktail hour. But amongst the guests mingling around were two awesome acrobats (and friends of Danielle’s) who were performing while walking around the crowd!

Anyway, back to the bride and groom photos, we did photos all around the property. Danielle and Kyle are so photogenic, they made my job easy! Though I suppose, with Danielle’s job she’s probably very used to having cameras around!

The Reception

As I mentioned earlier, the reception was held in the main barn on the property. Danielle and Kyle did a beautiful job of decorating it!

When guests first entered the barn, they greeted the newlyweds and some of the wedding party in a short receiving line, and then were greeted by the acrobats who were performing during cocktail hour. The acrobats did a “champagne pour”, where one of them was sitting up in the silks dangling from the ceiling pouring the champagne into a glass the other acrobat was holding, and then handing out to guests. I’m told Danielle is usually the one up in the silks pouring the champagne when she does events!

The MC was none other than Danielle’s friend and contortionist, Gabriella! Two bridesmaids carried a purple suitcase into the middle of the barn, which Gabriella came out of and did a short performance before announcing the entrance of the bride and groom.

During the reception, the main event was the incredible aerial silks performance by Danielle’s friend and bridesmaid, and one of Kyle’s best friends, Jennifer Roy! Honestly, I took so many awesome photos during her 8-minute performance, that I couldn’t just choose one or two for the blog. So have a scroll, here are all my favourites 😉

As you can see (above right), Danielle was moved to tears by Jen’s awesome performance! Danielle herself can also perform the aerial silks. Sidenote for Danielle: My daughter really wants to see you perform sometime 😉

As if all of the above wasn’t exciting enough – an ice cream truck showed up!

Even though it wasn’t quite dark enough, we went ahead and did a sparkler exit anyway before I was done for the night. Fun times!

Town of Newmarket Wedding Photographer


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!
