This is the story of Theresa and Sydney!  Theresa and Sydney were married in November of 2011; in fact, it was the famous 11-11-11 date!  I was lucky enough to spend the entire day with them and capture their wedding memories naturally and unobtrusively.

Being a Toronto wedding photographer isn’t always easy; the days often contain copious amounts of travel time and long lines at the popular parks as you wait for photos; but Theresa and Sydney did such a fantastic job planning and co-ordinating their wedding that the day unfolded seamlessly and the photos nearly took themselves!  I must say, I’ve never seen a bride so organized!  Well done, Theresa!

Ah, one of my favourite ring shots!  Theresa wore these spectacular blue high heels under her gorgeous dress and I couldn’t resist using them as props in the ring photos!  It’s always nice to see a pop of colour somewhere on a bride!

Theresa’s makeup was gorgeous, her hair was perfect, her dress fit like a dream and she was accessorized to the nines!  Time to get this girl married!

One of the best decisions Theresa & Sydney made for their wedding was to have their photos taken at Trafalgar Castle School in Whitby.  Trafalgar castle is  actually one of the oldest schools in Canada!  It was founded in 1874 and still operates to this day.  Photography is permitted in the main building which features sitting rooms, a piano, stunning stained glass windows and a breathtaking dark wooden staircase.  The sitting rooms are a great place to photograph because the large windows let in plenty of light which means you can capture your photos in the delicate softness of natural light.IMG 9662 - Theresa & Sydney | Trafalgar Castle Wedding PhotographyIMG 9669 3 - Theresa & Sydney | Trafalgar Castle Wedding PhotographyIMG 9695 2 - Theresa & Sydney | Trafalgar Castle Wedding PhotographyIMG 9692 - Theresa & Sydney | Trafalgar Castle Wedding PhotographyIMG 9729 - Theresa & Sydney | Trafalgar Castle Wedding PhotographyWedding photography in Whitby at Trafalgar Castle School is a fantastic idea, even if you’re getting married in Toronto!  Having such a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding photos is most definitely worth the drive!  There are many indoor photography locations in Toronto but of all the indoor locations in and around the GTA, Trafalgar Castle School is one of of my faves!  I could go on and on about how much I love this place, but you guys probably want to see more photos.

Theresa & Sydney chose to have their reception at La Vedette Banquet hall in Vaughn.  I’ve had the chance of photographing at La Vedette before and I was so happy to return!
