Ah…. wedding season has begun! And it got started with a bang with Kayla and Mert’s gorgeous wedding last weekend. It threatened rain all afternoon, but we only got a few drops. The cold and dreary skies certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s mood though
I am always amazed by the differences in each one of the weddings I’ve photographed. While they all have similarities, each has their own uniqueness about it. Following the ceremony, we headed out immediately for photos of the happy newlyweds and the bridal party. We had a few locations in mind – but it’s the third one that really made this wedding special. Locals will appreciate this I’m sure…. the entire bridal party had photos taken at the Black Horse Tavern. They used to spend a lot of time there hanging out years ago, so it was only fitting that they relax there for a bit before their reception. I’m not sure when the last time a bridal party had their photos done sitting on the bar there, but it was so much fun.
While Kayla is from Miramichi, her husband Mert is originally from Turkey – but they met in Halifax. While they came from completely different cultures, something brought these two together… and the result was a wedding day full of love and happiness. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a groom so anxious to kiss his bride during the ceremony. Once the dance started, everyone let loose – and you can see from the photos that fun was definitely had by all. They even had a belly dancer, which is Turkish tradition.
These lovebirds are on their honeymoon somewhere nice and warm (unlike their wedding day), but I know they’re anxiously awaiting some photos from their big day. So without further adieu, here are some of my favourites so far:
Kayla and Mert – it was a pleasure being your wedding photographer! I hope you enjoy these photos, as you and Mert relax in the sun in Mexico
