Snowy Newfoundland and Labrador Wedding at Manuels River

January 13, 2018 | Junebug Weddings

When outdoor enthusiasts Joanne and Rebecca decided to plan their wedding in just four short months, they pulled together their friends and family, as well as the artists at Lacy Rose Design, to create an unforgettable rustic winter wedding at Manuels River. The couple infused an enchanted forest vibe into their decor, which included rustic wood accents, lush greenery accented with simple florals, and tons of ambient candlelight. They also fully embraced the mountain location with a cozy photo shoot in the snow that included their wedding party bundled up in scarves, mittens, and booties. Sandra-Lee Photography could not have been a more perfect choice to capture every joyful and heartfelt moment in this beautiful winter wedding!

The Couple:

Joanne and Rebecca

The Wedding:

Manuels River, Conception Bay South, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

We wanted our wedding to involve our friends and family. Therefore, most people involved from our officiant to our musician to our hair/make up stylists were all close friends.

Sandra-Lee was a friend of mine (Joanne) from years ago. We would attend local band shows when we were teenagers. She is now one of the most talented photographers in Newfoundland and Labrador. Her work is just amazing! It was a no brainer who we wanted to photograph our wedding. She’s truly a free spirit, very relaxed, and always there to make you laugh. She encourages her clients to just have fun on their wedding day and try and have no stress. She’s great at grabbing those candid shots of you laughing by blurting some silly thing to make you crack up. She’s awesome!





We love the outdoors. We are always exploring our province with our two chow chows. We love camping and hiking, so we wanted our vibe to be a bit of an enchanted forest feeling. Our decorator did an excellent job creating the vision we had, along with a few touches we made ourselves!

  1. Love the colours in these shots – great to see fantastic wedding photos from somewhere that isn’t necessarily basking in glorious sunshine for a change!
