Britannia Yacht Club Wedding | April + Matt

Britannia-yacht-club-wedding (18)

The morning before April and Matt’s beautiful wedding at the Britannia Yacht Club on the Ottawa River, wedding photographer Blair Gable welcomed his second son into the world and needed some backup. Third Floor York photographer Andrew Van Beek stepped in to cover the second half of the wedding day with second shooter Matt Usherwood so that Blair could spend time with his growing family. Congratulations April and Matt!

Billings Estate Museum Ottawa Wedding

Together with their family and friends, Stephanie and Stephane had a beautiful and personal wedding in the Billings Estate Museum gardens, which I had somehow never had a wedding at before.

We got really lucky with the weather as they were calling for 30mms of rain and we dodged that for their outdoor ceremony but were quickly ushered into the estate buildings as it intermittently rained from the receiving line to the end of our formal portraits when we headed to Confederation Park and finished at their reception venue, The Royal Airforce Mess on Gloucester.

The Billings Estate National Historic Site is the former home of one of the region’s earliest settlers.

The oldest wood framed house in Ottawa was built in 1827-9 by Massachusetts-born Braddish Billings. It became the home for the following four generations of the Billings family. It is Ottawa’s oldest surviving house, though the Bytown Museum building is older. Billings had moved to the area in 1812, and was the first settler in Gloucester Township.

Vendors:
Ceremony: Billings Estate Museum
Reception: Royal Airforce Mess downtown
Florist: Rideau Florist
Cake: Thimble Cakes
Band: The Don Ks

Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

Mont-Tremblant Wedding

Sheri and Andrew got married in January in Mont Trembant, Quebec.  Most of the day was spent in and around Le Grand Lodge for the getting ready, many of the photos, and the reception. For the ceremony and other photos, we were at the St Bernard Chapel and the Mont Tremblant Ski Village.

Our day started early in Ottawa and we hit the road at 8am and -28C. This was officially the coldest wedding morning that I have ever seen and beat out my old record by more than 10C! Some records don’t need to be broken.

By the time we arrived in Mont Tremblant, the car had warmed up and we spent a couple of hours with the wedding parties before heading to the beautiful St Bernard Chapel. Despite the cold and all the associated kidding about it, one had to admit that it was stunningly beautiful outside. We ended up having a surprise sunny day and just enough light to get us through the photos and some evening shots. Thanks to the endless tenacity and Newfoundland toughness of Sheri (who seems to be either impervious to cold or actually enjoys it), we had one of the best winter shoots that I have had the pleasure to photograph. The rest of us tried to keep up and by the end of it all, it was well worth the effort!  Great day you guys!

Britannia Yacht Club Wedding, Kris and Paul

When I met the Bride and Groom, Kristine and Paul, who came as a referral from another amazing bride, I knew right away they were quirky and the wedding was going to be a blast.
Kris is one of those easy-going brides! It’s raining sideways during your ceremony: no problem.

I really wanted them to have a gorgeous day so we could explore all the beautiful spots around the Britannia Yacht Club where they had the ceremony and reception. I was lucky that it was sunny when I arrived at the Girl’s dress up location and the day’s weather continued to be a rollercoaster but I think everyone will remember how beautiful everything was regardless.
