A Love Lock Ceremony for Three

Ashley & Anthony’s country-chic wedding in Ontario, Canada was truly a family affair. With her mother as her maid of honor, Ashley married Anthony in a special ceremony that not only cemented their bond but also incorporated their daughter, Hailey.

Maria from Villa Bel Mara Photography was on had to capture all the details.


Many couples have used “Love Locks” as a part of their ceremony, taking two padlocks that represent the couple and locking them together. In this case, Ashley & Anthony included a third lock that represented their daughter. As Ashley explains, “We locked our love together with ‘love locks’ to represent our recognition of the dedication and courage necessary for securing a strong and healthy marriage. Love locks are usually only shared between the bride and groom but we did it a little different. We decided to incorporate our daughter as she’s 9 years old and it took us 12 years to finally tie the knot. It only felt right as she’s played a big role in our journey together, locking the three of us together as one.” How sweet is that.
