A Sage Green Summer Wedding at Le Belvedere

Something unexpected happened at Steph and Brian’s wedding at Le Belvedere…and it might just be one of my favourite decisions ever!!…

Well, you know that old tradition of it being “bad luck” to see the bride before the wedding? Turns out there was something way more important to Steph and Brian than keeping away the bad wedding voodoo…and that was spending as much time together on their wedding day as they could! All morning, they could be seen coming in and out of each other’s rooms as Steph got her makeup done, and Brian and the guys got ready upstairs at the Wakefield Grand. And you know what? It was amazing! Everyone was relaxed, the timeline was flexible, and the morning went off without a hitch! This was such a perfect decision for Brian and Steph, and it really helped set the tone for the relaxed party atmosphere they wanted for their wedding at Le Belvedere!

Some of my other favourite moments from their day included the private letters Steph and Brian had written to each other to read that morning; their grand entrance, which got everyone on the dance floor; spending time with the couple and their wedding party – including Josh, who you might recognize from Up North Wedding Films; and sunset portraits with the most idillic view of Le Belvedere!! We feel so grateful to have been a part of it all and we hope you love this sneak peek from this absolutely perfect wedding day at Le Belvedere!!
