We have such awesome memories of this wedding day! My associate (thank you Liz!) Liz Lott of Snapdragon Photography recently said “I seriously think I developed new smile lines that day!” It’s not often that I get to shoot near Parry Sound, but I’m thrilled when I do – and a wedding day at the The Ridge at Manitou is a pretty spectacular event. I have some dedicated favourites in cottage country, The Ridge at Manitou is one. I really can’t say enough about this venue and the staff! Amanda and Scott were equally delightful to shoot. This was a day filled with humour, from all over the world, in fact – fancy fascinators included. When Amanda explained to her family that the Canadian wedding was going to have a laid back cottage feel they were a little confused. If you’ve ever been to the Lakes District in England you’ll know that “laid back cottage” – the way it’s done here in Ontario is very different from the posh vacation culture in the UK. It wasn’t really as if these two had a choice, however. Getting married at The Ridge at Manitou was obvious. Years earlier Amanda and Scott actually met here. Scott was a golf pro and Amanda worked at the Inn, when it was in operation. After years of living and travelling together they finally settled back in Canada. Cheer to you both!
