Have you ever thought about having a winter wedding? You don’t have to go far to make it happen! Ontario has some incredible places to get married. But if you’re looking for something low-key and private, why not have an intimate wedding or elopement in the backyard of a beautiful property?
Earlier this year, I attended a photography retreat to further my education and create more content. We stayed at the cutest airbnb (there was even a wood fired sauna… need I say more?!) in Prince Edward County, Ontario. CLICK HERE to check it out and book your stay!

This is where I met Jacquie and Owen for the first time. Jacquie was actually the makeup artist for the other brides we were working with during our stay here. We had her and her husband Owen, model for us the day after our other shoots.
We made a bouquet for them out of anything we could find (there wasn’t a whole lot considering it was winter). I would definitely suggest investing in a florist if you’re getting married for real lol. After, we went over to the pond to get some epic couple photos of the two of them. It was a pretty windy day but Jacquie and Owen were troopers. I don’t think they would have lasted too long out there if we didn’t keep them moving!
Movement is key in getting those epic wedding photos filled with love and emotion.
Having hot drinks, jackets and blankets ready and lots of cuddling is important when you’re doing your wedding photos on a chilly day. Put the fireplace on too so when you head back inside you can cozy up by the fire together.
Share some wine, beer… whatever you fancy and spend your day together sharing an experience, doing the things you love. Maybe you want to take your sleds out for a rip on the trails, or hire a team of dogs to go dog sledding. Is skating something you love? Do that. Snowshoeing? Awesome. Love camping as much as I do? Go winter camping and/ or stay in a yurt in Algonquin Park. There are so many fun things to do together outdoors in the winter! Best part is I’ll be there to capture all the memories and adventures for you on your wedding day.
