A wedding to remember

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy|Photography

Weddings are happy things, aren’t they? A longtime friend of ours got married on Saturday, in a shady park in Oxford Mills near Kemptville.

I took a few pics to commemorate the day. How could I not?

The vows

The happy couple

The happy couple

… and then I handed the camera over to the kids, who gave our day a whole new perspective. This is only a small selection of what they shot:

Video girl

Spinny dress

chairs and people

mummy glued

photo of a photo being taken

Cake and cupcake

tabletop flowers

Swinging

Lawn bowling feet

Hot diggity

lonely chairs

Mark

Cue angels!

I just love these! They totally crack me up. I need to remember to hand over the camera more often.

That shot of you with the sun flare is amazing and I also like the one perspective looking up from the swings! Well done.

It was a beautiful day. Such a happy couple. And fun that the band, Fire and Neon, performed at the end of the evening. (They had played Bluesfest at 3 pm earlier that day).

Thanks for the photos :)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
