Katherine and Beth’s engagement shoot around the woods of Wychwood

Katherine and Beth are a couple who hold a special place in the heart for me and my husband Fred.  Katherine (in the red shirt), is our minister at St. Matthew’s United Church and married us over three years ago.  We checked out the church out of total convenience (it is literally a stone’s throw from our house) but decided to continue going because we love the way Katherine runs the service.  We knew for sure we really liked Katherine when she jumped at the opportunity to be a part of our rather unconventional surprise wedding.

So when Katherine met Beth about a year and a half ago we were really happy for her because we saw instantly how our always cheerful minister gained an extra depth to her happiness.  Needless to say I was thrilled when I was asked to be the photographer for their upcoming November wedding.

Here are a few of our favourites from our recent engagement shoot.  All the photos below were taken in the beautiful enclave of Wychwood Park.

Congratulations Charlotte & Jeanette!

Congratulations to Charlotte and Jeanette!

The celebration, on the coveted 10-10-10 wedding date was an intimate affair set entirely in the University room of the Park Hyatt.  I was among the sixteen other people in the room witnessing the love as Charlotte and Jeanette sealed their lifelong commitment to each other with their vows.  It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve heard it or how the wording may vary, but I am moved each time I hear wedding vows – especially after I have been married myself.  It was special to see Katherine, the same minister who married me and Fred, preside over today’s ceremony.

Thank you for choosing me to document the details of your wedding day.
