A Stunning Ancaster Mill Wedding

Congratulations Liz and John who were married on Aug 12, 2017 at the Ancaster Mill near Hamilton. It was the first time we shot at the Barracks Inn just up the street from the Mill and WOW what a fabulous little hotel. It had everything we needed plus an AMAZING bridal suite! As photographers, we are always looking for interesting light and textures – and this hotel had it all, with beautiful exposed stone, green space, big windows and a huge covered balcony. We photographed both the bride and groom getting ready at the hotel before heading to the Mill for the ceremony. The bride had a fabulous Vera Wang wedding dress and amazing flats from Marshall’s :) We have mentioned many times that The Ancaster Mill is one of our fave venues -¬†they take such amazing care of their grounds and the food is divine. We used every inch of the bridge and waterfall before heading inside for one amazing party. Check out the fabulous cake by Sweet Philosophy. It didn’t hurt that there were quite a few Star Wars references for us fellow nerds :)

Congratulations Heather and Sophol!

Heather and Sophol were married on Sept 10, 2016 at the Ancaster Mill in Ancaster, Ontario. The Ancaster Mill just added a GORGEOUS new indoor ceremony building and beautiful bridge – so we were so excited to be back in our old stomping grounds to experience and shoot in the new space. The moment we arrived at Heather’s we were greeted with such warmth and excitement, we felt like we were part of the family. That feeling continued all day which made shooting this wedding such an absolute pleasure. Heather and Sophol met at The University of Guelph over 7 years ago. Having a love of hiking and waterfalls, the Mill was the perfect spot for them. Check out the sneak peek below

Ashley & Jordan – Gorgeous People!

Ashley & Jordan were married Oct 25, 2014 at the Ancaster Mill in Hamilton. Being a late afternoon ceremony, we elected to do a reveal earlier in the day which allowed us to go to Royal Botanical Gardens for the photos. Firstly, the weather was unseasonable warm – no jackets required! The gardens provided a ton of variety and we had plenty of time to explore every inch of the park. From there we headed to the Mill for a beautiful outdoor ceremony by Reverend Mandy and beautiful blessing by Ashley’s dad. We didn’t hesitate to take full advantage of the falls before heading inside for one wickedly awesome party. Check out these gorgeous folks below.
