The first stop was the church where the service will be held. It is a fairly modern Anglican Church built in the 1960s, but also incorporates older elements like the vintage pews; organic elements like the wood ceiling; and artisan elements, like the stained glass windows and tapestries.
The stained glass windows were especially lovely and this one was declared the favourite by everyone there.
We had a full agenda and after some lunch went to the park where the formal photos will be taken. Victoria Park is a gorgeous old park near the downtown with a river running through it and an old iron bridge going to an island,
with a picturesque gazebo on it.
From which you can take photos like this one. Won't the wedding pictures look great in this setting?
And by May there will be leaves on the trees, green grass, and flowers in the garden. Waterloo still has some snow in the shady areas so the flowers are only just beginning to emerge from the ground.
At one end of the island there are a couple of very large willows overhanging the river. Don't you just love weeping willows? I have always thought they were so pretty. This would also make a great spot for some of the photos - well maybe not posed like the first photo below, but more like the other two.
It is a beautiful park and will make a wonderful setting for the wedding photos rain or shine, thanks to the gazebo.
