My favourite scene from my favourite film, La Regle du Jeu (The Rules of the Game), is a full grown man excited as a small child, presenting his latest acquisition to his friends: a huge automated village band, with mechanical musicians actually performing music. I decided to come early to capture the prayers that the couple had originally wanted to have captured. I had a bit of spare time and filmed a collection of chirping birds. I also discovered the clock you will see in the intro to this video. The clock reminded me of the movie scene and also visually connected to the carousel which was one of the photo locations.

The photo shoot with the amazing amazing Jana Vackova was a pleasure. Marilyn is an extremely calm person, while Shun seems quite shy and self-effacing. He delivered quite a few thank you's during his speech, after being supplied with a bit of extra alcohol as he made his way to the head table. Hats off to this beautiful and so in-love couple! And it may be appropriate to thank the many couples in Marilyn and Shun's huge circle of friends that have booked us for their weddings in the past. Thank you!

Hats off as well to possibly my favourite ceremony location: Hycroft Manor. It's just a fascinating, beautiful space. The light is always soft and flattering. Always filtered through windows or leaves, or bouncing gently off the building's architecture.
