Mark & Felicity’s Wedding
Ok, so a bicycle built for two wedding was a bit misleading. However, there were two bicycles involved (well, three to be exact). I digress. So, about four months ago, I shot Felicity and Mark’s Ottawa wedding at the Rideau Sports Centre.
It was a beautiful sunny day. Thank goodness it wasn’t too hot either because I had Felicity and Mark ride and walk their bikes for lots of photos. I loved how Felicity’s wedding dress was both beautiful and functional. The skirt was short enough as well as loose enough to allow for her to ride a bike. And her vintage style shoes were still able to allow for her to push the bike pedals, rather than unfunctional high heels. Awesome!
Give me your answer do
I’m half crazy,
All for the love of you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford a carriage
But you’ll look sweet
Upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two.’
When Felicty first contacted me and told me that she and Mark are avid cyclists and that they wanted to incorporate their bikes into their wedding, I was all over that idea. And I was doubly excited when they said that they’d also have a two man bicycle to ride for some of the photos. (Apparently, it’s a lot harder to ride a two person bike than I previously thought.) With all of these bikes, Felicity was adamant that this was not a bike themed wedding. As to whether it was or wasn’t bike themed, I’ll let my viewers be the judge.
Finally, I just wanted to say that their reception was awesome because they had a live band play the whole night. They played ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond, and I swear for the following week I had that wonderful chorus in my head. Yaassss!!! I had a fantastic time photographing their wedding. Congrats Mark and Felicity. It was a pleasure to be your photographer. 🙂
