One of the best things about Brickworks wedding photos is how truly unique they can be.
Oh dear, I’m getting ahead of myself…
Maybe let’s start at the beginning of the day instead? (I’m just so darn excited to show you the Evergreen Brickworks part!)
As with many traditional Chinese weddings, the day started off with door games and a tea ceremony. Photographing the tea ceremonies is actually one of my favourite parts of the day! The attention to detail, the appreciation of tradition and the bond between families. I love everything about it! After the tea ceremony we travelled a bit north of the city for the ceremony. These wedding photos at Oakview Terrace will have you in tears; I guarantee it. Janet’s contagious smile and sweet tears of joy will make you feel like you were right there with her.
After a quick stop at the groom’s parents house for tea ceremony #2 and a quick lunch, we get to my favourite part of the day…. a trip to Evergreen Brickworks!
If I could shoot wedding photos at any particular location over and over again, I have to admit – wedding photos at Evergreen Brickworks would be my choice! It’s such a versatile location! There’s indoor covered areas, the kilns as well as a vast outdoor area to explore. You have literally everything you want in one location. Hands down, it’s one of my favourite photography locations in Toronto.
After the dinner (and what a dinner it was!) David and Janet and I took a minute to sneak away from the reception to create one last portrait for the evening. Taking ten or even fifteen minutes out of your reception to do night time photos, sunset photos or simply even a small artistic session will really add a lot of variety to your wedding day. Not to mention, it will give you a much-needed break from the reception. Yes, receptions are fun but it’s nice to go somewhere calm – even for a few minutes – and collect your thoughts, grab a few awesome photos, and have a moment to take in the whole day. You’re MARRIED now! You did it!
