Graydon Hall Manor Wedding


Dave and I have absolutely been itching to publish this post! This has to be one of our favourite weddings from this year. Not only did Jessica look so incredible that we were speechless, but Faruk was quite debonair and I actually think he may have this whole modeling thing down to an art form now he-he!! We’ve just been shooting so many gorgeous weddings and engagement shoots this Summer and now into autumn it makes it difficult to keep on top of all of the blogging- but stay tuned, there are many more AWESOME weddings to come!!


We had the perfect weather for a  gorgeous Graydon Hall Manor wedding. The grounds were beautifully manicured, as always and the stone pathways looked magical as the morning rain left a bit of sparkle! We love shooting at Graydon Hall here in Toronto, it’s so elegant and staff are so professional and accommodating. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect Toronto wedding venue!




We grabbed some gorgeous shots of Jessica in her bridal suite. I adored her choice of bouquets, wedding dress and her soft gold Yves Saint Laurent shoes. Yes, I do LOVE shoes and YSL is high on my list of faves :).


I remember when we shot Jessica and Faruk’s engagement shoot at the Beaches in Toronto. She has such an amazing sense of humour and had us laughing the whole shoot! Goodness, I love our clients! It seems like we always book the coolest people and we truly look forward to photographing their special day for them. Here’s a shot of Jess giggling before the ceremony, it really captures her fun-loving personality!!



With such a stunning bride, I have to say it was hard to resist photographing her every chance we had.


After Jessica was ready and all of the finishing touches were complete it was time to meet Faruk at the Chapel to say “I do”.  Faruk is a guy that’s always happy and has a big smile on his face. When he saw his bride to be walk down the aisle he was taken back, you could feel the love that he radiates for Jess. It was like she had taken his breath away.



You can tell that these two had been looking forward to this day for a very long time and they were so happy that it was finally here!



The great thing about a mix of sun and rain on the wedding day is that you get some amazing light happening! The gray sky was like a giant softbox creating soft natural light for us to shoot in.



The soft light that came in through the windows was so flattering and even made the, already flawless, pink wedding cake look so amazing!


I loved all of the pretty pink details and wedding flowers!  This coupled with the sophisticated charm of Grayon Hall Manor made the wedding feel as if it took place on an estate in the French countryside.



The food was so scrumptious and delectable. Dave and I thought that we had died and gone to heaven. If we weren’t having our wedding in Australia we’d definitely be looking at Graydon Hall as our wedding venue!





The speeches we’re full of laughter and sometimes tears. We love the candid moments that happen during speech time! We even had a tiny guest come up to the podium to wish Jessica and Faruk happiness on their journey together!



See what I’m talking about with the rain. Check out how slick it made their red Mustang. Faruk was looking pretty slick himself, great work Faruk 🙂


It was a fabulous wedding day for a fabulous couple! Thanks so much for letting us be a part of your celebration. We know you’ll look back on these photographs and remember how your day felt for a lifetime. Congratulations to you both and we hope you had an amazing time on your honeymoon in Aruba!!!
