Last Saturday was the big day for Kim and Nicholas – they got married at The Birchwood with its beautifully lush and expansive gardens… The morning started out sunny and beautiful; beautiful it stayed… sunny – not so much. But this did not put a damper on the wonderful spirits of Kim and Nicholas. They could not keep their happiness hidden; only smiling allowed! And rain on a wedding day – as we know – means Good Luck!
It’s all about the dress!
Simple and stylish - this dress suited Kim extremely well!
I love my dress
Yes,it is beautiful and I am very excited about wearing it!
A closer look at the reception hall
Some detail of the decor at the reception
Kim and Nicholas had decided on a very tasteful decor with each table themed after great composers from Beethoven to Vivaldi!
All buttoned up
the buttons are getting all the attention here... the ritual of getting ready pysicaly and emotionally
Little man dressed up big
Connor also needs to get buttoned up and Nicholas is doing so with so much affection; a very special moment between the two of them!
All calm before the excitement ahead of him, Nicholas is very comfortable just leaning up against the wall and awaiting the days proceedings
The four musketeers
Alright then, we are ready! Bring it on!
Nicholas in the beautiful gardens of the Birchwood estate
Nothing like a special moment like this shared between mother and daughter!
a perfect setting in beautiful light to bring out her stunning eyes
a penny for Kim's thoughts...
Nicholas arranged these rings by himself as a surprise for Kim and she was not allowed to look at hers until the moment in the ceremony - how special!
The Minister blesses the rings during the ceremony just before Kim and Nicholas are to exchange them
This is the moment which stands for the rest of life, sealing the bond forever!
Hand in Hand – Bride and Bouquet
Kim and Nicholas enjoying their closeness
As I back away to give them some space they forget all about the shoot and focus on each other to enjoy this moment
They manage to cut their cake AND eat it :-)
A gentle kiss in the warm light of the lanterns as the sunlight around them is slowly fading
A Stolen Moment
As Kim and Nicholas are waiting for their great entrance into the reception hall I manage to steal this moment
Sealed with another kiss
Wedded, blessed and showered with confetti
United - Kim and NIcholas with their beautiful boys John and Connor
Just before the rains
Getting started with their photo shoot Nicholas is easing into the situation
Letting lose and forgetting about the camera in the distance
The grooms speech
As Nicholas gives his speech Kim's attention is glued to his lips and follows his every word!
Her big smile is proof that they were actually having good fun during their photo session!
A moment in the limelight
Side by Side
Side by side and hand in hand for now until eternity
Gorgeous looking wedding cake made up of lots of individual, little cupcakes; arranged on various levels of mirrors which was engineered and constructed by the proud groom himself!
As the weather is settling down the wind is still blowing quite a bit which makes Kim play around with her veil trying to get it under control which makes for a wonderful photo moment - thank you wind
A moment passing by
A veil moment
A quick glimpse from a distance
The cutting of the cake
Trying to cut the cake they get all tangled and get the giggles... what a true life moment!
Kim’s all smiles
Kim's big smile is infectious!
The groom’s moment
Dancing away to their song they get lost in the moment - just like it should be...
