Fifth edition of Wellington Weddings now available

One of the great experiences of a passion project like Wellington Weddings is our ability to seek out interesting stories that begin and end with the celebration of love. It’s a wonderful thing to build an entire magazine with such a positive purpose.

Our goal is to inspire you on your own journey to plan your dream wedding day your way – here in Wellington County. What we enjoy most about these stories is that every couple has found a way to make sure they include time-honoured traditions while ensuring their personal touches make the day unique to them.

Like a wedding, bringing together the stories for our fifth edition of Wellington Weddings takes a lot of support and coordination. We are grateful to the couples who allowed us to share their personal wedding day and engagement stories. Their diverse experiences make for great lessons for others in terms of budget, venues and vendors and, as we often find, new and unique ways to save money and spare the environment at the same time. We respect how individual each of these weddings were and how willing they were to share their ideas. Looking back on their special day, what rises to the forefront of their memories are the values they share and the moments that touched their hearts.

As wonderful as the stories are, we give full credit to the wedding photographers who willingly shared their artwork, allowing us to celebrate in the visual splendour of these weddings. They capture in images what we could never say in words.
