Hello and welcome to our blog.
Destination wedding photography is what
we do, and here you’ll find information on all
of our most recent shoots, as well as all
sorts of other weird and wonderful weddingy
things…..cool venues, great invite design,
bridal fashion links etc, etc. What you won’t
find are tacky pics, tacky links, tacky this and
tacky that. No tacky photos taken by
tacky photographers of brides sitting in
front of tacky fountains. Yep, this blog is
100% fountain-free, so if they’re the kind
of photos you like, please look away now…

A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM – OMG LOVE THE AGO

Written by Jessica - Posted June 1st - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

How marvellous would it be if you and your husband were the only ones at the AGO after hours?

Free reign to roam around all the collections and galleries – amazing and incredible art everywhere you look. Jess & Graham lived out my Ferris Bueller’s Day Off dream – not the fake sick part although super awesome (Save Ferris!) – the rad museum trip part of course. And when the museum has been designed by Frank Gehry himself – you cannot go wrong.

They are both in creative fields – Jess is a writer and Graham is an illustrator – so having their wedding at a museum was so so perfect for them. The nooks and crannies and architecture of the AGO was incredible to explore and with no other people around it was beyond beyond!

The wedding ceremony took place in Walker Court at the AGO at sunset. Surrounded by 120 of their nearest and dearest. And then fun cocktails followed in the Galleria Italia and then delicious dinner and speeches rounded out the night.

We could have happily stayed forever and ever (and ever) capturing images with Jess & Graham and #ALLtheART- it is an ah-mazing place for a wedding. But alas all good things come to an end. We look forward to being back at the AGO again soon – the art is calling us!

A MARVELLOUS MONTREAL CHIC RESTAURANT WEDDING

Written by Jessica - Posted May 9th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

It is no secret that we heart our couples and often become friends long after the I do’s have been said and rings exchanged. In this case, I have known the bride, Rachel for over 2 whole decades. She is my sister’s best friend – so when she said she was getting married – we were over the moon thrilled to be the ones to capture all the chic awesomeness for her and Sam.

Their wedding could technically be classified as a destination wedding – since Sam & Rachel live in the States and chose to have their big day back in Rachel’s home city of Montreal. The prep took place at Rachel’s parents home in Upper Westmount and is essentially a photographer’s dream. The art, the light, the twirling staircase – oh my – it was all just too incredible. Prepping in a spot that has meaning to the couple is always the best. Rachel grew up in this house – so for her to come down the stairs in her wedding dress and fully bridalified to see Sam for the first look – well…yup it was a moment.

The wedding ceremony took place at Emanu-el Beth Sholom Synagogue and then everyone headed to Beatrice restaurant down the road (formerly Bice). The restaurant is marvellous on any given day but it was kicked up a bunch of notches for the reception and looked simply divine and oh so twinkly. Their guest wined and dined and danced their faces off. The speeches were lovely, thoughtful and funny – we were all laughing and crying – some of us behind the lens included.

Rachel & Sam – we adore you guys and truly love love loved times a million zillion capturing every moment for you both.

Jessica: Ahhh thanks so much Rachel - this is the loveliest and sweetest. We adore you & Sam and were so thrilled to be the ones to capture all the awesome.

Rachel: You guys the absolute best! We are nearing our 1 year anniversary and I still can't stop looking at these photos. The wedding went by so fast and I get to live the experience again and again through your lens. We could not be happier with how they turned out. If everyone had as much fun as they look like they are having in these photos, are wedding was truly a success! You captured the energy and joy of us and our guests perfectly all while making us feel totally at ease. We will need to renew our vows just so we can have you photograph it. Love you lots!!
