Pankita + Akshay | Jack Lake | Peterborough Wedding Photographer
One of my favorite things about being a Peterborough wedding photographer is when a wedding brings me out of the city into the beautiful Kawartha Lakes. There’s something about a cottage wedding that slows down the pace of the day and allows for so many quiet, intimate moments between the bride and groom. Pankita and Akshay wanted a special celebration with only their closest friends and family, so they rented a cottage on Jack Lake in Apsley and had the ceremony on the dock. I loved how Pankita’s glamourous touches contrasted with the earthy beauty of the Kawartha Lakes. After their ceremony, Pankita and Akshay shared a toast and some appetizers with their friends and family. Then they all got into pjs and spent some quality time together. It was one of the smallest, and most unique, weddings I’ve photographed, and I loved slipping into the woods to capture their first look and special first moments as a married couple together.
Here are a few quotes from their ceremony:
“Pankita, Akshay loves your smile, your beauty; how with every decision you take, you always think about others before yourself, always think about “us” instead of “me and you”. You make him laugh, and he admires your “low maintenance” personality.”
“Akshay, Pankita loves your kindness, commitment to your relationship, willingness to listen; your support for her to pursue her ambitious career goals, your sense of adventure and willingness to try new experiences.”
“I will share my life with yours, build our dreams together, support you through times of trouble, and rejoice with you in times of happiness, I promise to give you respect, love, and loyalty each day of this journey together. This commitment is made in love, kept in faith, lived in hope. May each day bring happiness and a new adventure to our lives together.”
The beautiful couple shared their first look in the wooded area that surrounds the cottage. I love being part of such intimate moments.
