Micro Weddings on The Bellarine

Since starting my business I've found that not everyone planning to get married wants the big celebration that we traditionally think of when we talk weddings. I've done quite a few elopement-style ceremonies and, for a myriad of different reasons, some couples want a very private ceremony. It can be as small as the couple, two witnesses and me, or for some it can include a few close family and friends. And that's what I call a micro wedding.

So when a photographer friend and I were having lunch a few months ago, we started tossing a few ideas around about packaging up a low-key, no-fuss, straightforward ceremony combined with a two-hour professional photo shoot. Lots of couples don't need the big wedding but would like to have a record of that special moment as a keepsake for years to come.

With both of us living here on The Bellarine and knowing so many gorgeous spots along the coast, we thought we can really offer something special. A couple can get married in a stunning environment AND take away some memorable moments.
