Lesley and Brian‘s wedding outdoor Graydon Hall wedding was beautiful from start to finish. It began at their homes for a Chinese/Vietnamese tea ceremony with their families. I am in totally in love with Lesley’s custom made Chinese cheongsam which she had done with a gorgeous burgundy red lace. It fit her like a glove and looked perfect against the soft romantic dusty blue of her bridesmaid dresses. As a surprise to Brian, Lesley beautifully played A Thousand Miles on piano for him. It was a song that he asked her to play when they first started dating, which brought some sweet tears to all our eyes.
Lesley then changed into a stunning Pronovias lace bridal gown from Blu Ivory Bridal and we headed over to Graydon Hall Manor for their first look in the gardens. I love Graydon Hall for its crazy amount of places to take gorgeous wedding photos. We had limited time to work with but Lesley and Brian are always so fun to work with. Lesley totally rocked all her bridal portraits!!! She blew me away with her stunningness (Is that even a word? But it’s the best word I can think of to describe her!) Their outdoor garden wedding ceremony was so pretty which had a beautiful view looking over at the manor. Flower 597 did an amazing job with providing the prettiest florals for the bouquets, ceremony decor and reception centrepieces.
Lesley and Brian’s dinner wedding reception out on the patio of the manor, overlooking the immaculate courtyard gardens was just like out of a fairytale. But what was so magical, was to both witness and capture their first dance as husband and wife. All their family and friends gathered around them with sparklers like little lights representing all the love and support for their marriage. Their wedding day could not have been more perfect. Every time I look at these photos of Lesley and Brian together, my heart can’t help but fill with warmth and joy. The both of them are so caring, loving and kind hearted. I get to know so many couples as a wedding photographer, but Lesley and Brian are just so special!! It is no wonder so many of their friends were so happy to celebrate this amazing day with them!
