Goldie Mill Ruins Wedding

Goldie Mill Ruins Wedding :: Shannon + Neil

Shannon and Neil’s Goldie Mill Ruins wedding was full of love, laughter and smiles. Their summer wedding started with bride and groom prep in Guelph, just before their first look.

Brides dress swaying in the wind as it hangs from a tree Bride putting on eye makeup as she looks in the mirror Bridal jewellery BrideShannon opted for a first reveal with her bridal party. It was the sweetest! The expressions on their faces said it all. The bridal party smiling at the bride as they see her for the first time The bridal party hugging after seeing the bride Groom getting ready and ironing his shirt Groom tying his tie Groom getting ready by tying his tie and shoes Groomsmen holding cufflinks in his hand Groomsmen squished on a couch with the groom laughing and smilingWe headed to the University of Guelph for their first look and a few wedding party photos. Shannon and Neil met while studying at the U of G. It felt pretty special to head back to campus where it all began for them. It was the perfect place to document the start of their new chapter. Shannon and I also studied art together, so it was extra neat to visit the arts building Zavitz for photos!

In the middle of our shoot the weather was all over the place – cloudy skies, rain drops, and bright sun we had it all weather-wise. Shannon and Neil were so relaxed about it, and just embraced their time together as we waited out the rain under umbrellas. They saw it as a quiet moment alone in the woods, and shared a hug as the rain pattered down. Once the rain cleared, Shannon shared the prettiest spot by the river. As soon as I saw it I knew we’d venture in!

This is one of my favourite ceremony spots, and I’d love to capture another Goldie Mill Ruins wedding!

If you are looking for a fun and interactive way to avoid guests clinking the glasses, check out the their wedding wheel below. DJ Bear kept everyone dancing with an awesome mix of music throughout the night.

Congratulations Shannon and Neil, thanks for having us capture your special day!
