Heron Bay stables wedding
Here is a full post from our Heron Bay stables wedding an amazing outdoor location not just for the ceremony but also for this kind of getting ready images. We had 40 minutes instead of 3 hours for the creative shoot but we managed to create some unique scenic images for this amazing couple. Thank you Teila + Pavlo for being so easygoing even though you had a heck of a dramatic wedding day behind…
If you love stables, barns or grass field locations then Delta area is your destiny. We were amazed how beautiful it was here and completely shocked that we never heard about this awesome location before. Simply perfect choice for a wedding venue IMO. As you can see the details from the getting ready session are only with the bride and girls, guys were getting ready at different location quite a drive from this so we were commissioned to cover the bride only. Well I wish I had guys around here as well, would be worth it to compare if they could beat easy going, laughing full of fun ladies 🙂
I have mentioned at the beginning of the post a ” Dramatic wedding “. What happened is something I have never experienced in my life. The wedding commissionaire did not show up to the ceremony. You hear me right. Even worse, he did not even call. And when sweating groom was trying to call him he did not even answer the phone. No kidding! So here it is how great people save a wedding when they work together. People already seated outside on hot sunshine were asked to come and enjoy the cocktail party and snacks ready for after ceremony time :), bride, groom, parents etc all on the phones trying to reach anyone in neighbourhood who is legal wedding minister and could come to allow this amazing couple to say YES I DO … today! So they managed to reach an old family friend and she was close enough to manage to get to the location in an hour. Not bad, excellent! So here was the second seating for the ceremony and groom and best man could finally come out of the limo where they were hiding till now!
And, btw Pavlo you have great nerves to handle this the way you did… I do not know what I would do at my wedding day… Kudos to you and Teila.
Fairly quick ceremony, and family formals photo session let us to save 40 minutes for the creative bridal party shoot at the Boundary Bay park wedding. Superb location where we were supposed to spend 3 hours with original timeline. I can tell you, we managed in 40 minutes all what we wanted without being burn from the hot sun. Working under pressure also trigers creativity , I just hope this does not happen to our next couple again.
The opening ceremony to the reception was feeding each other with a bread and salt and bride and groom were allowed to put as much of salt as they wanted on it. You could tell Pavlo was a gentleman and he took one for the happy marriage. And the fun was all over the place the whole evening, you should see the speeches 🙂
A priceless moment of the bride’s father to the best man speech. He was accused that he probably did not hear when his name was called to help move stuff around for final look. I think he listened very well based on his fast reaction to it 🙂
The cake was absolutely perfect, and cutting it at the sunset could be better. I do not know how some people do it but we had some lucky couples when the nature just helped them at the wedding days and this was not exception.
Great evening with many mini stories and we could keep posting these images for on and on… Btw, these are only shots from my camera with telephoto lens if you noticed. There is none image from my second camera with wide-angle lens on it yet. Why, well there was so many freaking cool moments captured I could not simply include all of them… maybe a second post coming later..? Surprise…
The first dance and iconic shot of the happily married couple at the stables with the red horizon wrap it for now. We absolutely enjoyed your company guys and it was our pleasure to cover your engagement and the wedding day. Congratulations one more time and bon voyage in your new life.. Jozef + Maria
