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 :)

Nerd Weddings!!!

Can’t believe we actually had to have this conversation a few weeks ago:

I dunno…do you think I should get my groomsmen Stormtrooper masks and then I’ll get a Darth Vader mask?

What?!?! Of course you should!!! Why would you doubt this…this’ll be the greatest thing ever! Get them! Seriously.

We love a nice nerdy reference tossed into a wedding. God knows we love Star Wars. Honestly, when stuff like this makes it’s way into a wedding, we all know we’ve found the right fit….the couple have found photographers they can actually relate to and have fun with, and everyone is having a big ole nerdy blast(er). ;)
