Lizl & Denis’ modern chic wedding

1 Mar

Lizl and Denis are a such a wonderful couple! Their wedding was the perfect combination of touching moments, gorgeously soft yet modern details and big celebration at two gorgeous venues. L&D married at one of the most beautiful churches in Ottawa and then celebrated in style at the National Gallery of Canada and infused the entire day will so many lovely details!

I love it when couples send me their invites – makes me feel like I’m really part of the wedding. When I found out that the bride designed and hand-crafted the gorgeous invites herself I knew I had to incorporate it in their film some how. Lizl is so very talented and her amazing sense of style and eye for design touched every aspect of this celebration.

Speaking of talent, it was such a pleasure working with Derrick Rice on this wedding as I am a big fan of his work and really enjoyed filming alongside him. Thank you Lizl and Denis for being so in love and such great people!

    A beautiful film, Bridget! Always a “feel good” experience watching your films – very professional. A work of art that I’m sure the bride and bridegroom will treasure for ever.

    Oh my goodness, Bridget. This film is so moving, you got me all teary…
    The bride looked so beautiful, she really wears her heart on her sleeve and you captured that beautifully. I loved the little details, the cute footage of the dog, the music…everything!
    And I agree with Christopher about the best footage of a bride dancing ever ;)
    The happy couple and their families must be so pleased with this stunning film! x

      Thank you Elizabeth! Lizl was a beautiful bride & you are so right to say that she wears her heart on her sleeve – she is so endearing! And she can really dance ;)
