F & W - Downtown St. John's Wedding
My second wedding of the season was one for the books. Fenning and Whitney drove from New Brunswick to celebrate their love with friends and family in Newfoundland. When they first arrived – they arrived to snow in Grand Falls. Luckily we had much nicer weather here in St. John’s.
It rained most of the morning while I photographed the bride and her group getting ready. But shortly after I left to head to the reception the rain stopped and it was a beautiful overcast day. They got married at the Anglican Cathedral in downtown St. John’s. One of my favorite things about living here is all of the old buildings and the cathedral happens to be the oldest Anglican Parish in North America. They had a beyond beautiful ceremony and then it was time for some pictures.
There are so many beautiful, unique spots available for wedding pictures but first up we hit up Newman Wine Vaults. It was my first time there and it was such a unique spot to do some pictures. From there we ventured to Quidi Vidi. If you live in the area – you know it is a super popular spot for pictures. It is so beautiful and unique and made the perfect backdrop for their wedding party photos. After that we still had some time so we went up the hill to Cuckold’s Cove. Every time I go there with a wedding party I hear someone remark that they had never been there. It is definitely a hidden gem in the city of St. John’s and one of my favorite spots to visit for pictures. The view is so dramatic and the landscape is full of lush terrain.
Once the pictures were all finished it was time for the reception. They had booked the Bungalow at Bowring Park. If you haven’t been it is right in the middle of the beautiful park surrounded by lush grass and beautiful trees. We took some family photos outside on the grounds and then it was time to party. The meal was crazy delicious - shout out to Red Oak Catering for being so awesome. For their wedding favors the couple bought eighty-five sets of tea cups/saucers for everyone. It was such a unique detail and I can’t believe all of the cups made the trek from New Brunswick to here in a car.
