Mackenzie & Andrew's Elopement

Stratford Elopement Photography

< Back to Weddings


Like many couples, Mackenzie and Andrew found themselves planning a wedding during the COVID pandemic this year.  It’s certainly been an unprecedented year for many industries, and the wedding industry has not been exempt from the effects of coronavirus.

Instead of throwing a big event, Mackenzie and Andrew opted for a smaller more intimate ceremony at the Stratford Shakespearean Gardens with their bubble and their closest family and friends.  I’ve been to these beautiful well-manicured gardens before, and was excited to photograph them there as well!

We started with their bride & groom photoshoot around the gardens, and then proceeded to the ceremony which was live-streamed to their loved ones abroad.  These two are HILARIOUS – Instead of rings, they exchanged their baby girl during the ceremony!  I’ve photographed more weddings than I can count and this was not something I’d seen before – the crowd burst into laughter (myself included).

It was truly a special day and I am honoured to have captured it for Mackenzie and Andrew, and their family and friends!
