The Lake Country Social Distancing Wedding
As with many weddings, we were facing a postponement – with the current regulations in place, there was no way the ceremony could go forward. In this case, several couples are opting to split up their wedding, which I’m more than happy to do.
The wedding took place in Lake Country, down by Carr’s Landing. There’s a hidden gem out there, a breakwater and a dock. Choosing a location was somewhat difficult – we had to get a dock ready that would be big enough for the social distancing measures. 2 Metres, or about six feet is recommended, so that’s what we all did.
The ceremony was beautiful. Both of them had handwritten vows. We laughed and cried, there was a lot of humour and laughter, stilted though by the sincerity of it all.
Then, one of my favourite times. Social distancing family photos!
Then, some formals with just these two. The weather was really something. It went from rain to clear blue skies in about an hour. This worked out just great for me – I prefer a range of colours and styles. We began with a more dramatic style, highlighting the distance between the two of them.
After this, we made our way to a park up the street. The sun had come out, which made portraits a little easier. For a good portrait, I like to do a close up, focussing on the eyes, and then a wider portrait that shows off the full details. But first, the rescue pup and kitty!
And then, some more photos together to finish everything off.
