Mandy and Jason’s gorgeous Windermere Manor wedding was the sweetest celebration! Wedding days are all about marrying your best friend. And this day had us feeling so grateful that these two found each other and that we get to do what we do! From moving to California for work and living the adventure that comes with finding your soulmate, to going through all the ups and downs in life together, these two have an amazing bond that you can’t help but see.
Mandy and Jason planned their London wedding all the way from California! The adventure all started when they met at the University of Waterloo through mutual friends. They were friends for a few years. Friendship is always such a good foundation for an amazing marriage!!
When Jason was planning his proposal to Mandy, he worked really hard to keep everything on the down-low. He was so nervous about Mandy somehow finding out that the proposal was going to happen that he as soon as he had the ring in hand he asked her Dad for permission (love that!!) the day before.
And of course, Jason’s strategic planning paid off. Mandy had no idea. He had planned for them to go watch the sunset as they normally do. The sun was already setting while they were driving, and by the time they got out of the car to their destination, a cliff, it ended up being a little dark. But that worked out since there was no one else around at that point do they had this moment all to themselves.
Jason asked Mandy if she wanted to take a picture while they watched the sun melt away into the sky. She liked the idea of taking a selfie! Then Jason went into his backpack to get his “phone” (which Mandy didn’t realize at the time did not make sense because his phone was in his pocket)! With such an unexpected top-secret proposal, she was shocked when he popped the question. And all she could say was ” is this really happening?!” Apparently she had said ‘yes’, but Jason had to ask to clarify if she said yes!
Windermere Manor is such a stunning venue. We are such big fans of weddings at estates because they are always so classic and gorgeous. This Windermere Manor wedding was perfection… a couple as in love as Mandy and Jason are paired with simply stunning details of white, blush and eucalyptus paired and charm of nature and heritage home architecture was a dream.
We love how Mandy and Jason had a special vision for their wedding photography. They were so easy going and it was a gift to photgraph these two together. We did a little exploration on the grounds of Windermere Manor and loved the surrounding forest and golden sunset! And we also got some fun shots at night time. We love how they were so chill and that we could get so much variety by playing with light and different angles!
The end of their wedding day had us feeling nothing but grateful to be in attendance to document the first as husband and wife! Surrounded by amazing friends and family, polaroid guest book shenanigans, an incredibly relaxing and joyful vibe, their day was perfect. Mandy and Jason, we are so happy our paths crossed and we are super stoked for your beautiful future together. Wishing you the most incredible journey as you build this precious dream life together.
