It's always a pleasure when we have another opportunity to photograph a wedding at the ElmHurst Inn, and Luke and Sara's wedding day was no different!  Luke and Sara chose to have their ceremony in the valley in behind the Hotel, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect!  For their reception they were in the beautiful James Harris Room upstairs at the Elmhurst Inn.  

Sara put all kinds of effort into planning her wedding day, and it really showed with all her cool details!  For example, instead of doing a bouquet toss, she did a bob-omb toss (think super Mario bros!) Sara hand made her own "bob-omb" and stuffed it with all kinds of goodies and gift cards!

Here are some of our favorites from Luke and Sara's day:

Enjoy!

Destination Wedding Photography http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/9/destination-wedding-photography Nick & Jennifer's Riviera Maya 

Destination Wedding

 

2017 has been an incredible year so far!  We have had the honour to capture so many weddings for so many amazing couples in some beautiful locations and Nick & Jennifer's Wedding at at Catalonia Yucatan Beach Resort is one wedding that we won't soon forget!  (and not just because they took us with them to the mayan!!!). We had an amazing week getting to know Nick & Jennifer and their entire family, and like I told Nick, his grandfather is my hero, he was the first one out on the dance floor, and he never left!  I'm guessing he was one of the last on the dance floor! (he was still going strong when we had to call it a night!)

Here are just a few of our favourite images from their wedding:

St Thomas Ontario Wedding Photography http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/st-thomas-ontario-wedding-photography Catie & Adam's Fall Wedding 

In St Thomas Ontario

 

We we're pretty excited when Catie & Adam hired us for a part day to photograph their wedding in St Thomas! They had so many unique ideas for things they wanted to do for their wedding day.  They decided to do a "first look" before their ceremony which is always really nice.  Its fun to be a part of such a perfect intimate moment, no crowds of people watching when you see each other for the first time, just the two of you (and your photographer of course!)

For their ceremony location, they chose The Old St Thomas Church, which is an awesome old building!  It was built in 1824, making it one of the oldest buildings in St Thomas, and a beautiful spot for a wedding ceremony.  

They held their reception at the CASO Railway Station, which is a beautiful spot, not quite as old as the Church though, the Railway Station was built in 1870! lol  For the reception Catie & Adam had lots of unique ideas to make their day a little different from the norm... for example, they turned their honeymoon into a game!  They chose 6 different places around the world that they thought would be neat to go to for their honeymoon (they waited a few months after to go) and they let their guests pick where they thought they should go!  How cool is that!  For their dinner, they had an all vegetarian meal... which I have to admit, I was a little worried about, as I am about as far from being a vegetarian as a person can get! lol But I have to admit, the meal was amazing!

It was definitely a memorable day!  Here are a few of our favourite images from their wedding day, Enjoy!

ElmHurst Inn Wedding http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/elmhurst-inn-wedding Brian & Shamiso's Elegant

Elm Hurst Inn Wedding

 

Brian & Shamiso chose to have a beautiful and intimate fall wedding at the Elm Hurst Inn one Thursday evening this past fall.  It was truly a beautiful day, they spared no expense planning their wedding day.  From the amazing decorations and flowers that they chose. Shamiso even arrived in style for the day in The Elm Hurst Inn's Rolls Royce Phantom! 

Brian & Shamiso chose to have their ceremony in the valley behind the main hotel at The Elm Hurst Inn, it was a beautiful ceremony, as they had their decorators not only decorate the reception hall but for the ceremony as well!  One of our favourite parts about a smaller ElmHurst Inn Wedding, is that couples have the option to choose from their Choice Menu, and while the food is always amazing at any Elm Hurst Inn wedding, it is extra good when choosing from their choice menu!  For their reception they chose the James Harris room which is perfect for weddings less than 100 people, with its vaulted ceilings and floor to ceiling picture windows at one end, it was truly a beautiful evening! 

Here are a few of our favourite images from Brian & Shamiso's amazing wedding day!

Bellamere Winery Fall Wedding http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/bellamere-winery-fall-wedding Jeff & Sarah's Fall Wedding

at Bellamere Winery

 

We had a beautiful fall day for Jeff & Sarah's wedding day at Bellamere Winery!  We knew when we showed up that it was going to be a special day, when Sarah's father pulled me aside and asked me to take a picture of the bottle of Crown Royal that he brought on the day that Sarah was born!  

One of the things that really stood out to us at their wedding was the amazing floral arrangements that they had at their ceremony and reception, courtesy of Patzees Floral Scapes. I don't think I've ever seen quite so many beautiful flower arrangements!  The ceremony and reception at Bellamere Winery was also amazing.  Bellamere is a great venue if you are looking for that rustic feel but aren't in love with the idea of a barn wedding.  The reception hall itself was an amazing room with lots of large wooden beams giving you that rustic feel, and the staff were great, and very helpful. 

Here are a few of our favourite images from their wedding day, enjoy!

Rainy Day Wedding at The Elm Hurst Inn http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/rainy-day-wedding-at-the-elm-hurst-inn Roger & Sarah's Rainy Day Wedding

at The Elm Hurst Inn

 

It was kind of ironic, when we did Roger & Sarah's engagement session in the summer at Albion Falls Hamilton, right near the end of the session it poured rain harder than I've ever seen.  We were completely soaked to the bone before we could get back to the car!  The last thing that I said to them was, "Don't worry, this is good, now we don't have to worry about it raining on your wedding day!".... Oops ☺️ 

Fortunately Roger and Sarah weren't even a little bit bothered by the rain!  In fact they had even planned months prior to have their ceremony indoors at the The Elm Hurst just in case it did rain.  They had their ceremony in The Carriage House which was a beautiful backdrop for their day.  

One of the questions we get asked the most when meeting with potential clients is, What happens if it rains? Fortunately it doesn't happen all that often, but the biggest thing you need to remember, is that if it does rain, don't worry!  Especially if you are having your Wedding at The Elm Hurst, or a similar wedding venue.  There are lots of porches, and covered verandah's that we can use to keep everyone dry... We'll everyone except for myself usually, lol.  Most of the time I can be found standing out in that pouring rain in order to get the perfect shot of everyone!  Even if you are getting married somewhere else, there are always doorways, or overhangs somewhere which we can find and use, and if it is only a light rain, assuming the bride and groom are up for it, it is always fun to grab some umbrellas and head out into the rain for some unique photos that most bride and grooms never get the chance to take!

I hope you enjoy some of our favourite images from Roger & Sarah's rainy wedding day and hopefully they'll show you that there is no need to worry about rain on your wedding day!

Enjoy!

Elm Hurst Inn Wedding http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/elm-hurst-inn-wedding JP & Melissa's SuperHero Wedding

at The Elm Hurst Inn

 

Ok, so it wasn't really a Superhero wedding, but JP had a lot of cool unique superhero themed things at his wedding, everything from his cufflinks, to his tie, and socks.  My favourite though has to be the awesome cake that they had made (pictures below!) one side was a normal wedding cake, but the other side was designed to look like you were peeling back the icing, and underneath was all the superhero's!  

Needless to say when JP first mentioned all this, and he threw out the idea of using LightSabers for a night time photo, we were pretty stoked! Because we are on The Elm Hurst Inn's Preferred Vendor List, we Photograph quite a lot of weddings there, which is great, its an awesome place to Photograph, but when JP mentioned the lightsabers, I had lots of cool ideas running through my head for photos that we haven't done there before, as you can see below!

Another thing that we liked about JP & Melissa's Wedding, was the location that they chose for their ceremony, it is in behind The Carriage House at The Elm Hurst, it is a beautiful tree covered area surrounded by a pond and a small river.  One of the reasons that we like this spot (aside from the fact that it is a beautiful area!) is that the trees provide lots of shade, which comes in handy for an outdoor ceremony, not only will it keep your guests a bit cooler, but it will make for nice photos, especially in the middle of summer when that harsh bright sun is out. 

Here are a few of our favourite images from JP & Melissa's Elm Hurst Inn Wedding:

London Ontario Wedding Photography http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/london-ontario-wedding-photography Megan & Bruno

London Ontario Wedding

We had an awesome time this past summer photographing Megan & Bruno's wedding in London Ontario!  They have the cutest little girls who made adorable flower girls at the wedding.  They were a little worried when the weather was calling for a lot of rain, but the rain held off, we had about 5 minutes where the skies opened up over London and just poured, but it was perfect timing anyway, gave everyone a chance for a quick break and a drink!

Megan & Bruno had their wedding ceremony at St Mary's Church in Downtown London Ontario, which is a beautiful big old church with huge stain glass windows. Afterwards we even did some of the group photos right outside the church since everywhere we looked it seemed to be raining, so we did some right there just to be safe since there is a nice little garden area right out front.  From there we went over to Springbank Park in London  which is a great (and popular) spot in London for your formal wedding photos. 

For their reception, Megan & Bruno chose to have that at Brookside Banquet Centre which is great location for a wedding reception especially if you are having a larger reception.  Don't quote me on this, but I would think that the hall could seat around 200-250, and it is a beautiful very nicely lit hall.  It is located not too far from the 401 on the south end of London Ontario.

Ellen View Farms Wedding Woodstock Ontario http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/3/ellen-view-farms-wedding-woodstock-ontario Terrance & Laurie's Fall Wedding

Ellenview Farms//Woodstock Ontario

 

When Terrance & Laurie were planning their fall wedding, they probably weren't planning on it being quite as cold as it turned out to be!  They didn't let that ruin their day though, they even had cool blankets as part of their wedding favours. We can't complain though, we actually had a rainbow come out just before supper!  Its actually kind of ironic, we photographed a wedding at Ellenview Farm in the spring and it was way hotter then they planned! 

One of my favourite parts about Terrance & Laurie's wedding, was all the cool unique things that they did.  Instead of fancy dress shoes, they had custom Converse sneakers with their wedding date stitched into them.  Instead of a regular bow tie, Terrance had a wooden bow tie. They even made their own wedding bands! (if you scroll down to the Bottom you can find links to some of the vendors that helped out with those)

Ellenview Farms is a great spot for a wedding, its Located in Woodstock, Ontario, just a few minutes off of the 401, and just down the road is a beautiful tree lined country road which gives you tonnes of options for great photos on top of all the nice spots for your Wedding Photos at EllenView Farm, its definitely somewhere to consider if your looking for a rustic barn wedding.  

Here are a few of our favourite photos from Terrance & Laurie's Wedding at Ellenview Farm, enjoy, and if you are considering having your wedding here (or anywhere else in SW Ontario 😊) you can contact us to see how we can help capture your vision of your perfect wedding day!

Elm Hurst Inn Wedding Photography http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/2/elm-hurst-inn-wedding-photography Nick & Andrea's 

Elm Hurst Inn Wedding Photography

Ingersoll Ontario

 

Nick and Andrea's Summer wedding at the Elm Hurst Inn was number 2 of 5 weddings at the Elm Hurst for us.  You can see the first one here.  We will be posting the others soon.  Nick and Andrea had their ceremony in the back valley, and their reception was in the Grand Ballroom.  You can see some photos from both down below.  You have several different choices for locations for your ceremony and your reception at the Elm Hurst, and while they are all great, I'd have to say that the valley is one of our fav spots for the ceremony, and the Grand Ballroom is great for larger receptions!  If your thinking about having your wedding at the Elm Hurst Inn, you won't be disappointed, the food is fantastic, and the Ladies in the wedding department there will always make sure you're looked after! 

We had a blast with Nick and Andrea on their wedding day!  They had a big wedding party and they were a blast to work with, and I've never seen a wedding where everyone was so excited to get up and dance!  

For now I'll leave you with some of our favourite images from Nick and Andreas day, but be sure to check back often for more posts featuring the Elm Hurst.  Also be sure to scroll to the end and check out some of the other great vendors that helped make their day so special!

Enjoy

Stratford Ontario Wedding Photography http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/2/stratford-ontario-wedding-photography Kailyn & Zarek's BackYard Wedding

in Stratford Ontario

 

This past summer we had the privilege of capturing Kailyn & Zarek's beautiful backyard wedding on their parents property in Stratford Ontario.  You couldn't have asked for a more beautiful  backdrop or more perfect weather, the outdoor dance floor made for some of my favourite dance photos!  Its hard to believe that it was over a year ago since we were able to capture their engagement photos in the same place!  

Kailyn & Zarek opted to do a first look before their ceremony which is one of our favourite things to do. If you do opt to do a first look before your wedding ceremony, you get to have a nice private moment together as well as you are able to do all of your formal photos  before the ceremony.  That way once the ceremony is over then you get to get straight into the party portion of the day!

Here are some of our favourite photos from Kailyn & Zarek's beautiful outdoor wedding in Stratford Ontario, enjoy!

Purple Hill Wedding Photography London Ontario http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/2/purple-hill-wedding-photography-london-ontario Laurin & Jarret's Country Wedding

 Purple Hill Hall//London Ontario

Wedding Photography 

 

It was great to be back for another wedding at Purple Hill Country Hall.  We had a beautiful summer day for Laurin & Jarret's wedding at Purple Hill Country Hall in London Ontario.  This country setting at the Purple Hill Hall was the perfect backdrop for their wedding day, and it couldn't have been a more perfect day.  Its always fun when a bride and groom have an idea for something different for their wedding photography, and incorporating two huge John Deere farm tractors in their photos is definitely different, but it sure was fun!  We actually had a chance to do the same thing for their engagement photos as well.  It's always nice when a bride and groom have an idea to personalize their wedding photos to themselves.

If your getting married, think about the things that you both enjoy, and then think about how you can incorporate them into your wedding photos.  Earlier this year we had a wedding at The Elm Hurst Inn where the couple incorporated ballroom dancing into their wedding.  We also had another wedding that I haven't had a chance to post yet where we had a blast incorporating Star Wars themed photos into their day! Anyway, thats just something to think about!  You don't need to do something like that for all your photos, just a few.  Its always nice to be able to have something different for your wedding photos, something that is uniquely yours, just like Jarret & Laurin did!

I hope you enjoy some of our favourite photos from Laurin & Jarret's Wedding!

Ellenview Farm Wedding in Woodstock Ontario http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/2/ellenview-farm-wedding-in-woodstock-ontario Mike & Charity's Spring Wedding at Ellenview Farm

 

We were honoured when Mike & Charity asked us if we would be able to photograph their wedding at Ellenview Wedding Barn in Woodstock.  We've known Mike & Charity for a few years now, Charity worked with my wife Elisha, and Charity is a great massage therapist.  I highly recommend you visit her if your ever looking for a massage therapist, here is her contact info although you may have to wait a bit as they are expecting their first baby pretty soon!

Mike & Charity chose to have their wedding in May because they aren't a big fan of the heat (and neither are we!). However the day of their wedding there was a new temperature record set for warmest day in May!  It was all good though, it was still an amazing beautiful wedding day, that we won't soon forget! 

Ellenview Wedding Barn in Woodstock is a great place if your ever looking for a barn wedding.  Here are a few of our favourite photos from their wedding day, enjoy!

Fire RockGolf Club Wedding London Ontario http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/2/firerock-golf-club-wedding-london-ontario Forrest & Amanda Get Married at FireRock Golf Club

 

It's crazy how time flies!  It seems like only a few weeks ago that we went to the beach in Sarnia, for their engagement session, although it was a year and a half ago now!  It was a huge privilege to be able to photograph their wedding for them.  Its always an honour when a client contacts us to find out what days we are available and then plan their wedding around our availability!

It was a perfect summer day for their wedding at FireRock Golf Club.  FireRock is a beautiful spot for a wedding, they have a beautiful reception hall, with a great spot right out front for ceremonies.  I love the fact that they have a retractable awning covering the whole ceremony area, so you don't need to worry about the weather on your wedding day!  We didn't have to worry about that for Amanda & Forrest's wedding day though. It was bright and sunny all day, and FireRock was nice enough to give us some golf carts to take the Bride & Groom and the wedding party for a trip around the golf course for the formal photos.  We did get a bit of rain that night, which made for a cool night time photo!

It was a great day that we won't soon forget!  We especially loved the cake they chose for their wedding, it was a chocolate brittle cake, and instead of a traditional cake cutting, they chose to do a cake smash, and as you can see from the photos they were a fun amazing group! They also had the guys from Tomorrow Media there doing the video for their wedding, they were good fun to work with, and they even pulled out a drone for the group shot, and they had a cool Slow Motion video booth at the reception!

Anyway, thats enough from me, here are some of our favourite images from their wedding day:

Well, its been quite a while since I've updated our blog, but now that its winter time, I figured I should go back and post some of our weddings from 2016!  This wedding is from the spring, although it feels like it was only a few weeks ago!  Dan & Ally got married at The Pine Knot Golf Course in Dorchester, just outside of London Ontario.  They were a ton of fun, and Dan had lots of ideas for photos they wanted to do, which made our job pretty easy! Pine Knot is a beautiful spot for a wedding.  As soon as I saw the tree in the first image below, I knew that I wanted to do a night time photo there!  

Enjoy!

Wedding Photography at The Elm Hurst Inn http://terryrichards.com/blog/2017/1/glen-donnas-beautiful-wedding-at-the-elm-hurst-inn Glen & Donna's Wedding at The Elm Hurst Inn

 

This past spring we had the privilege of photographing Donna & Glen's wedding at The Elm Hurst Inn in Ingersoll.  It was a great wedding with an awesome couple!  Their wedding party consisted of their kids, so it was a real family affair, which made for a very relaxed and fun wedding day! At one point when they were getting ready I tried to sneak a picture of the brides maids dancing and I wasn't fast enough.  Donna saw me and said, "You don't have to worry about that... Girls dance!" And they did! 

The Elm Hurst is really a great place for a wedding, they have several different spots for ceremonies and receptions.  For Glen & Donna's wedding, since they had a smaller wedding, they had the ceremony on the front lawn in front of the awesome fountain.  (This spot also makes for an amazing night time photo!)  For the reception they were upstairs in the James Harris room which is also really nice and has huge windows to let in lots of light. My favourite part of any wedding at The Elm Hurst though has to be the food! If you've never eaten here you should definitely stop by one night!

Enjoy!

Engagement Photography Ideas http://terryrichards.com/blog/2016/4/engagement-photography-ideas Engagement Photography Ideas

 

   So your getting your engagement photos done, and you decided that you don't want to have the exact same engagement photos as just about every other engagement photo... ever!...  Awesome!  We love doing different unique images!  Don't get me wrong.  There is a reason why everyones first thought when they are thinking engagement photos is "what park is nice and nearby?" Engagement photos in a park can be really nice, especially in the fall when all of the leaves have turned!  Case in point:

Fall engagement photo with colourful leaves at Springbank Park in London OntarioFall engagement photo

 

   What though, if its not fall?  Or maybe, pictures in the park just aren't your style?  Not a problem!  We love doing different types of engagement sessions!  Or you could even mix it up and do two different locations, one normal one at a park somewhere, and then another some where else.  That brings us to the question- If not in a park, then where?

   There are plenty of different places that make for great engagement photos, as well as different times of day (or night!)  First things first though, you should sit down and think about what you as a couple like to do.  The same idea applies to any props you might use for your engagement photos.  For example, if neither of you played a violin, or liked the violin, you wouldn't want a picture of you holding one in a field somewhere.  Sure, maybe it would look cool, but if neither of you played it, it would be kind of a silly photo, right?  

   The first thing you need to do is decide what type of engagement session you want. There are basically two types of engagement photos, the first and most popular type, I like to call the 4P's session (Pretty People in Pretty Places) The other type is a "lifestyle session" which is what it sounds like as well.  You get your pictures done doing some sort of activity that you enjoy doing. 

    So when you are thinking about what you would like for your engagement photos, think about what you as a couple enjoy doing together.  Do you enjoy the beach?  Hiking? Dressing up and going for a night out in the city?  What activities do you do? Do you like to ride go-carts, bowl?  (those are the first two that came to mind!  you get the idea though right?) You want your engagement photos to remind you 10 or 20 years from now of who you are as a couple now, and what you enjoyed doing together!

   Thats the idea behind choosing what to do for an engagement session. Now I'll try and give you some practical examples of some different ideas that I have that I think would make for some really nice photos, and hopefully that will get the ball rolling for you so you can think about what you like and come up with some ideas of your own. 

   Lets start with some ideas for a 4P's session (Pretty people, pretty places):

  • A nice park (obviously!)
  • The Beach
  • Waterfalls (there are a ton of nice waterfalls in the Hamilton area!)
  • Country roads/fields
  • The city (any city will do)
  • The City at night (I personally would prefer a nighttime city session, you can make some awesome pictures at night in the city!)
  • Speaking of night, what about a night time session in the country, with beautiful starry skies!

   Those are a few ideas for you to think about. Now for lifestyle sessions, again this comes down to the types of activities you enjoy doing, but here are a  few things that come to my mind:

  • Playing pool
  • Snowmobiling
  • Hiking
  • Sports
  • Cooking 

  You get the idea, just think about what you enjoy doing.  Remember too that you can always combine a lifestyle session with a regular session as well.

   Hopefully this gives you some ideas for what type of engagement session you think you would like!  Stay tuned to my blog, as my next post is going to be more info on engagement sessions, things like what type of clothes to wear, what props to use (if any) Maybe a few tips on posing!
