The Sussex Contemporary Art Gallery Elopement

Ottawa Wedding Inspiration

Pulling influences from Japanese aesthetics, we created this Ottawa Wedding inspiration shoot to highlight the unique elegance found in imperfection, and the understated beauty of simple design.

Set in the handsome Sussex Contemporary Art Gallery, with the help of some of the best creatives and wedding vendors our city has to offer, we designed this intimate wedding ceremony and reception to showcase the expansive effect of thoughtful minimalism.

Beyond planning for the sensory experiences of your wedding, planning for minimalism in your wedding day timeline is also something we always encourage our couples to consider. Just like the wabi sabi approach to aesthetics underscores the value of impermanence and imperfection, opening up your schedule to allow for unscripted moments and breathing space will result in a more relaxed, fluid and organic feeling to your day. This will in turn allow you the time and space to be present and take in the beautiful, fleeting moments of your day as they are unfolding.

With the right space, the right elements, a generous timeline and the right wedding vendors working alongside you, you can absolutely hold a breathtaking intimate wedding right here in Ottawa. Best of all, you can do it all without ever leaving your very own city.
