Ancaster Mill Wedding | Leyanna + Jeff

We love filming couples that have some sort of connection to couples of our past. Jeff’s best man happens to be Nate, one half of the lovely duo Danielle + Nate. The same people who also connected us to Kristen + Fraser. Yay to recommendations lol! We are actually indebted to my cousin Will for connecting us to Danielle in the first place! Are you following?

Anyways, back to the lovely couple! Leyanna is an incredibly talented opera singer who used her talents to write a special song for Jeff. She filmed herself singing the song and sent it to him on the morning of their wedding day. As soon as I knew this information, I knew I had to include it in their video. The song was so touching and beautiful and Leyanna’s voice was literally that of an angel! I also knew it would pair well with some of their earlier videos/photos together – I just love love love their intro. Henry said he got goosebumps the first time he watched it!

So how did this couple meet? Well, who ever said Tinder couldn’t produce strong and long-lasting relationships?? This couple is proof that these dating apps do work! You may have to kiss a few frogs in order to find the one, but sometimes it’s worth it to stay the course! So as the best man said in his speech, ‘Cheers, to Tinder!’

The wedding was held at Ancaster Mill which we’ve had the pleasure of filming at a few times before. That loooooong staircase leading to the waterfall…um, gorgeous no? You can’t get more fairytale than that ending shot – you’ll see what we mean!

Lastly, we can’t end this post without saying that Leyanna looked FLAWLESS!!! Bravo to Fancy Face Inc. and more importantly – her parents! It’s gotta be them genes! Leyanna, I need your skincare routine 🙂

Ok, going to stop there and as always, let the video do the talking! Thank you Jeff and Leyanna for trusting us to tell your love story. You both were so easy to work with and are the loveliest pair! We wish you nothing but happiness and joy in this next chapter in life!

Lots of love,

Joanie (and Henry) x
