The entire day was going to be spent at the Millcroft Inn and that is such a pleasure for planning. We arrived and headed to the brides room to photograph all her amazing details for the day.
She was getting ready in the manor with her friends and mom in attendance to keep her company. The day was gorgeous and promised to be beautiful and bright all day.
The bride got ready in a nicely decorated blue room that she kept clean and tidy just for pictures which was such a treat for me as I didn’t have to do any cleaning at all before getting started.
As the girls helped her into her gown we just photographed everything that was happening without interrupting what was going on.
The bride wore a birdcage veil which I love love love to finish off a look when you don’t want to wear a veil.
I love getting rooms like this where the bride is surrounded by everyone she loves while she gets ready.
The couples paper details they are keeping as a momento of the day photographed with her grand mother’s doilies.
This couple decide to do a first look session in the front garden and sun came out to join them as well and made for a beautiful reunion.
You can see how much these two love each other by just watching them for a minute.
We took a minute for a few portraits before being joined by the wedding party and families.
This manor house is the perfect location for portraits on the front porch
The happy groom as he heads for the alter to wait for his bride.
This little flower girl stole my heart all day long and when she walked down the aisle blowing kisses I couldn’t believe my eyes.
aaaaand then she grabbed her little basket and slowly dropped petals to mark the way for the bride.
She was beaming as she walked towards her waiting groom and the best man started crying in happiness
Written all over her face as she stands there waiting to marry the man of her dreams.
This little one spotted her mom in front row and happily smiled.
Then stood patiently next to the maid of honour for the entire ceremony
and this says it all!
The bride was so overwhelmed with emotion that she couldn’t finish her vows so he finished them for both of them while she wiped away the happy tears.
She wore the most stunning red lipstick and for the rest of the day so did he.
This was a constant seen throughout the day as the bride made sure to leave her mark.
and then they would laugh at the fact that he wore bright red lips all day.
No ceremony is complete without a bubble send off and quick receiving line before everyone was off to cocktail hour in the Erin room.
We went for a walk around the property to take photos and started at the back of the lake and stopping in all the pockets of light.
There is one tiny spot at the back of the lake with a bench that welcomes anyone with a cup of coffee and moments to reflect. But, it’s also a perfect spot on one little flat stone for a bride and groom to stand for portraits with a couple different scenes behind them.
Walking back from the back of the lake and stopping in all the pockets of light to create pictures as we go.
This spot is my favourite for camera aware photos with the newly married couple.
This shed is another one of my favourite locations on the property because it’s just so rustic and different and perfect for a bride in fur shawl
The beautiful postcard perfect scene of the Millcroft Inn at the back of the lake.
Another spot not to be missed is the waterfall. This is an iconic photo for weddings at the Millcroft Inn
And now it’s time to party as we introduce everyone for the reception
