Adam and I lived in Australia together (where he is from) for a little over 6 years. Though we LOVE it here in Canada, there is always going to be a longing for the other place we call home. Whenever we get the opportunity to meet and work with another couple who come from that same sunburnt country, it brings our two worlds together and a special connection seems to form.
Kaitlyn is a Canadian girl, who just like me, happened to find their true love in an Australian man. That man would be Kel! A country boy from small town New South Wales.
These two couldn’t have been more right for each other. Their wedding day at Ancaster Mill couldn’t have been more beautiful.
The thing I love about weddings is that you can never experience SO MANY pivotal moments in in such a short period of time as you can on a wedding day. The anticipation of the morning, the excitement and nerves of the ceremony and the emotional words and champagne cheers of the reception.
That pivotal moment that couldn’t be beat for Kaitlyn and Kel’s wedding happened during their beautiful outdoor ceremony, when Kel stood under the arbour in front of their closest family and friends and waited for his bride. Escorted by her father, Kaitlyn came around that corner, and they had their first look. Kel had that knees weak, head spinning look about him as the tears started to fall. Literally the air changed and you couldn’t help but get overwhelmed by the absolute palpable love these two share.
It was such a pleasure to capture the magic between these two during their photo session on the grounds of Ancaster Mill. The wooden bridge, rushing stream and rocky waterfall provided us with a little piece of heaven to work with for their rustic, woodsy style photos, making it feel like we were deep in woods of B.C.
