Halifax Wedding Photographer Dustin Hall – Banook Canoe Club with Janet & MIchael

Janet and Michael were the first couple to book me for a wedding in Nova Scotia since I moved here last year.  I booked more Ontario weddings and continue to do so, but being the first booked in Nova Scotia means a lot to me.

Their ceremony was outside at Sir Sandford Felming Park or as I’m told it’s called, ‘The Dingle’, not to be confused with Dingle, Ireland, which Robyn and I travelled to last year.  The ceremony was short and sweet and then it was off for pictures.  We went to the tower and took photos both inside and outside of it and then we went to the Banook Canoe Club at Lake Banook for the reception and a few more photos.

The weather turned out quite nice, if a bit windy.  It was nice enough that I was able to setup my Photobooth outside on the deck at the Canoe Club.  People quite enjoyed the Photobooth and I have the photos to prove it.  But before people got to that, there was a nice dinner with some hilarity.  The Best Man’s speech, or maybe I should call it a slide show, was amazing, there’s no other way to explain it, he just did such a  great job, he had everyone laughing.  Following after his speech was the Maid of Honour’s speech, which took the form of a song with 2 of the bridesmaids singing and playing guitar.  Their song was to the tune of U2’s ‘With or Without You’ and was also quite funny.  I think everyone enjoyed both tributes.

I think the dancing may have been overshadowed by Michael’s rendition of ‘I believe in a thing called love’ where he grabbed a mic and burst out singing, not caring one bit that he barely knew the words.  His family is from Newfoundland and they showed me how a wedding’s supposed to be back home, it helped that there were so many people from there attending the wedding.

I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the day and I hope everyone planted their favours, little spruce trees.  I’ve got mine at home in a pot, I’ll plant it outside in the spring.

Congratulations Janet and Michael!!!
