Marion and Derrick’s wedding at London’s St Peter’s Cathedral and Bellamere Winery was a beautiful and romantic event! I love the mix of fall colours and the warmth of the reception room – so elegant!

What are you favourite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: My favourite memory would have to be the last words of advice and prep talk from my Dad before walking down the isle.
Groom: Taking a trip to the bar to have a quick drink before the wedding courtesy of my brother in law.
Best wedding related decision: Hiring HRM! Heather, Niki and their assistant were all wonderful to work with.
Favourite detail: My Grandpa and Grandma were married over 60 years ago in St. Peter’s so having his pin on my bouquet was my most cherished detail.
Advice for future brides & grooms: Have people around you slow you down to take in the moment. The day goes by so quickly and its great to just stop and appreciate all the love and support that surrounds you on your wedding day.
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We wouldn’t change a thing!
Best surprise of the day: Our friend Martyn who was to be in our wedding party was not going to be able to come but after a last minute red eye flight he arrived just hours before our ceremony. Seeing him outside the church before the wedding and having him join us for some pictures was the best surprise we could have asked for!
Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): 561, Martyn, who is mentioned above was able to make it into this one and we were all still smiling despite how cold it was outside!
