Oxford County Countryside Wedding | Hannah & Craig

On a gorgeous fall day, Hannah and Craig got ready to say “I do” in a little church in Oxford County. The colours on the trees were just starting to turn. It was the perfect symbolism for the change that was about to happen in the lives of this couple. From the moment Craig turned around to see his bride at the Norwich Museum, there was a permanent smile on both of their faces. There were times that they became a little larger; like when Craig spied his wife to be at the beginning of the aisle, and the photos at the end of the day that reminded me of that iconic “walking into the sunset” feeling. This Oxford County countryside wedding could not have been a more romantic and joyful day!

GETTING READY IN NORWICH

Both bride and groom started their day in the Norwich area. And at both homes, the love for the special people of the day was so evident. Even the hair and makeup artists at the bride’s location were very close to the families involved. It was incredible to spend the day with people who love this couple as much, if not more, than I do. Meeting the parents, it was obvious where these two got their amazing qualities from. We are just so honoured to have been part of this big day. It’s quite something to watch your children or sibling get married. I can speak from experience as I watched my brother get married only a few days before!

Even though Craig was already incredibly busy before the wedding, I’m sure his parents are going to notice that he’s not around as often anymore. But knowing that they’ve gained their first daughter made them quite happy; especially mom is happy that she’s not quite as outnumbered as before. Hannah and Craig’s family is incredibly important to them. We made very sure to capture all the moments in between when this was so evident!

GETTING MARRIED AT THE CHAPEL

Hannah and Craig’s first look was at the Norwich Museum, and it couldn’t have been a more special moment to capture. When they had said their hellos, we proceeded to take a few more photos in front of the adorable little church that is on the grounds. From there, the wedding party photos were done in front of the gorgeous colouring trees at the Norwich Conservation area. And then on to the little church in the Newark area for the reason we were all together that day!

Hannah’s grandfather officiated the service, and there was a moment when Hannah wasn’t sure whether he wanted to see their first kiss. But thanks to a little reminder, we managed to capture that iconic first kiss photo. Their service was incredibly meaningful. Receiving a Bible as your first gift after you’re officially husband and wife is probably the best gift. I know that not just the pastor, but also the rest of the family and friends wholeheartedly wished them God’s blessing at that moment.

WALKING INTO THE SUNSET

This Oxford County countryside wedding ended with a delicious meal spent with family and friends. There were the obligatory (and filled with love) speeches and some fun games with family and friends. But when that sun started to set, I knew I had to get them outside for just a few more wedding portraits. And the cold that had set in at that point was so worth it! Hannah’s wrap was just perfect and kept her almost warm enough. But Craig didn’t mind getting just a little closer to his new wife. Even without a bouquet, those photos would have to be my favourite of the day!

Hannah and Craig, from the moment I met you at your consultation, to your stunning APPLE ORCHARD ENGAGEMENT SESSION, and now to your wedding day; it’s been an amazing journey, and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know you. Bertus and I are honoured that you chose us, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds for you. May God be beside you and behind you as you start this new part of your lives together. We wish you so much happiness, and are so thankful to call you friends.
