Lydia and Seamus’ Rustic & Vintage Berkeley Church Toronto Wedding

I love it when my couples integrate little personal touches into their wedding that are a reflection of who they are. Lydia had some of her favourite books made into clutch purses as “bouquets” and gifts for her bridesmaids: it turns out that she is an avid reader! Of course, since Seamus is from Ireland, he had to be super dapper and wear a green Irish Donegal Tweed 3-piece suit! After dinner, his family stood up together and sang a traditional Irish folk song and that was a meaningful and memorable highlight for everyone :)

During one of our wedding planning meetings, I had some time to converse with Lydia and learned why she loves Seamus so much! While they were both in Medical School in Ireland, Lydia suffered a retinal detachment. She needed to undergo surgery and an extended time of recovery. Unfortunately, during the recovery time, she was unable to see; so Seamus would call her, read the day’s notes out loud to her, and ensure that she didn’t fall behind. He even personally tutored her for a few months to get her back up to speed!

Lydia told me: “Life is tough. You just know when you find the perfect person to go through life’s difficult times together. You keep each other happy and positive. Being a doctor, you experience heavy losses, death and tragedies, so you need someone else to lean on and share life’s heavy burdens.”

Congratulations, Lydia and Seamus! May you continue to bear and lift one another up :)
