A greenery-filled wedding at Stonefields


A modern rustic wedding at Stonefields Heritage Farm


Tom stood by the water’s edge and called for Hayley to come down and join him. A few feet above – on the rocky cliffside where they had come to relax – Hayley lay in the sun and casually declined his offer…after all, what could beat a few minutes of quiet with a cold glass of sparkling wine? Well – as she would soon find out – a proposal along the shores of Lake Ontario was sure to make the day – heck their entire vacation – the best of her life. As Tom waited further down the path, he rehearsed what he wanted to say, until finally she came down to join him. Minutes later he was down on one knee – with a ring in hand – and she replied with a resounding ‘YES’ to the question he had had on his mind all morning.

Hayley, Tom – I hope you’re having the time of your lives in Bali right now, and soaking up every minute of married life. What a dream honeymoon! You two deserve every happiness and I hope these photos from your wedding at Stonefields Estate bring back memories of what was simply an incredible day. Thank you for the honour of being your photographer – A.

The girl’s getting ready room was filled with the perfect light and the most beautiful people.

Just across the driveway, Tom and his groomsmen prepped for the day. The restraint of these two to not walk across the road and see each other is a testament to their honesty.

A few final details to her look, and Hayley had us all on the verge of tears. Such a beautiful bride.

Tom and Hayley’s first look in front of the farmhouse was simply the sweetest.

A few feet away, the ceremony space was prepped for the afternoon’s events.

Earlier that morning, Tom and Hayley had written letters to each other to express the sentiment of their feelings that day. They read them to each other in a private moment way from guests and enjoyed some time to themselves to soak in the day.

It’s not everyday you eat dinner in a room with over 10 crystal chandeliers. This newly-renovated barn on the Stonefields property is the gem of the property.

The Reception was filled with amazing speeches, delicious food, and endless entertainment for guests. Wedding-themed games like, the ‘musical chairs scavenger hunt’, ‘the shoe game’ and ‘the kissing game’ had the whole room laughing and singing along.
