Tanya and Mark were married overlooking the beaches of Martinique outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia at a small, intimate wedding surrounded by their closest family and friends. Mark’s mother Ruth and aunt Nora took on all the planning so that the couple could relax and enjoy the day, and Belathee Photography was there to capture it all in style. They chose a simple ceremony on the grass, next to a single large tree, overlooking the ocean. Marks’ uncle made a custom wedding ring for Tanya, and she was excited to see it for the first time during the ceremony.

The day’s weather started off looking a little gray, but soon it all turned around. “We were worried at first because it was very foggy and slightly chilly out. But as soon as the ceremony was about to begin, the clouds separated and the sun beamed down on us like what you see on old record album covers. It was perfect.” For dinner everyone feasted on lobster, and guests took home mini maple-leaf shaped bottles of pure Canadian maple syrup. It was a day of happiness and relaxation!

  1. I love her dress and the crab bibs are adorable!

  2. What a gorgeous couple. The whole day looks so beautiful and done with your own style. Way to go!

  3. I am SO relieved to see couples that have sweet, intimate weddings. Not that there is anything wrong with a huge wedding with a massive dress and giant reception, but when I see weddings like this, I realize that for me, smaller is both easier to manage and more in line with my own personal needs. Also, lobster: drool.
