An Intimate wedding in battle harbour, Labrador

One of the most beautiful locations I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing a wedding is Battle Harbour, Labrador.

This island was once a vibrant fishing community, but like so many others, was resettled. A trust has taken it over and restored the island, and visitors are welcome to enjoy it’s beauty.

This wedding was small and intimate with just a few friends and family. A private ceremony on the wharf was followed by a day of adventuring for the bride and groom. All of their details – the bride’s dress, earrings, sealskin ‘flowers’, and even jams and butters for guests to take home, were made by local Labrador artists and friends and family of the couple. I was in awe of the creativity and beauty not just of the place, but of everyone involved who worked to make this wedding a dream come true.
