PopUp Weddings seem to be growing in popularity. We’ve personally had a great first year when we started our Pop Up Wedding service in Sudbury, ONT last year.[Read more…] about Pop Up Weddings in Thunder Bay…
I’ve been all over the north photographing weddings. Some of the best and most memorable locations were at lodges…from Lake Huron, to the French River and Lake Lauzon and beyond….which means I’ve only been to a very, very small percentage of the lodges in Northern Ontario.[Read more…] about Pop Up wedding at lodges in Northern Ontario…
“We loved out pop up wedding experience! Would recommend it to anyone!!”

We had another inquiry yesterday from a couple who are interested in eloping. This Sudbury couple googled the terms: Sudbury elopement and we showed up.
Here’s the dictionary definition of eloping:
run away secretly in order to get married, especially without parental consent.
This explains in many ways why eloping and a pop-up wedding are so very different. A pop up wedding, well, everyone knows they’re getting married. It’s not a ‘secret’.
And, even though it’s a much smaller crowd -closest friends and relatives- it breaks away from the long standing tradition of a large wedding- with all its hassles, pageantry and expense.
One of the biggest challenges that comes up, and often resolved, is how do you only invite your closest friends and relatives?
Isn’t it bad manners to exclude?
Actually, no. It’s not. This is a fear which is made up in our imaginations. Most are supportive and happy for the couple as they start their lives together.
That, plus, it solves the bigger problems and challenges that goes along with “who do you invite?” and “how do I keep it small?”
Simple. Have a pop up wedding. No need to elope is there?
Just about everyone I chat with respond with “What’s a PopUp Wedding?” when I say we started doing Pop Up weddings in and around Sudbury. And, Tina is now a legal wedding officiant.
You know it’s a thing when the Globe and Mail dedicated some press to it.

Wedding in the yard. What a great way to make it personal and homey. All you need is good weather!
We’re hoping for good weather when we host our Pop Up Wedding day event in August…BUT, in case of rain, always, always have a back up plan….You never know…
