I think one of the biggest nightmares for any couple to be is transportation, especially of a wedding out of town. Not only do the big stars of the night need their limo, but so do the guests and all the party essentials, gifts, etc…arriving in chrome or not.
The day starts off for a number of guests, my assistant Jessica and myself in Mornelle Court to await our ticket out to the quiet rolling greenery of London, Ont. The attendance checks off slow at first and ended up quite late which caused a bit of concern I’m sure on both ends but as guests started trickling in, the worry eased off and the bus roared off for London. Many of the guests were from the community camp that the couple ran and all were abuzz to see the wedding.
I don’t think I’ve ever been in a situation of such uncertainty before but I think its all part of the wedding process where so many things are happening and as a contractor, your involvement may not always start or remain alongside the wedding planning process.
Suprisingly traffic was light and our awesome bus driver actually made it to the location with time to spare. The wedding ceremonies were held at the Dowding Water Gardens about 15-20 mins west of London. It’s a small venue surrounded by long fields of corn and other plantations. One of the things that caught my eye was the setup of the water garden which you’ll see later on. Its quite a treat to look.
A better view of the water gardens in the main area can been see here. Its a very tranquil sight although the centre island didn’t leave much room during the signing of the marriage documents.
You are probably wondering where the shot of the first kiss is and yes I do have it but I’ve got something better to show you so keep scrolling!
Traditional Indian cermonies were done afterwards including blessings and gifts from the parents.
A word of Grace before dinner.
ah yes, the first dance!
Clouds were an on and off basis throughout the entire wedding ceremony outdoors and once evening settled in and everyone headed for the tent, lighting was a more constant affair. So to that extent, I felt it was better to show you this photo which looked far more romantic!
and last but not least…
