Jennifer and Mike’s summer wedding celebrations

Jen and Mike celebrated their wedding over two bright and beautiful August days. It all began with a colourful and very detailed Hindu ceremony and continued on next day with a great party at Toronto’s St Andrew’s Club.

Easy going and laid back, the couple looked like they enjoyed every moment of their great events.

Jen and Mike, I would like to congratulate you one more time and wish you lifelong happiness and abundance on all levels. Sincerely, Manuela.

An intimate and fun civil wedding ceremony

Dan and Perry are planning to have a bigger family reunion and celebrate their wedding in Bali this fall. They decided to get united in a small civil ceremony held at their condo building in Toronto.
Sweet, intimate, joyous. Not only family and friends were in attendance, but their little dog Mango seemed to be very excited as well. We enjoyed an afternoon of beautiful weather and soft light.

Dan and Perry, big Congrats to you, it was a lot of fun to capture these colourful images. Best, Manuela.

Elegant fall wedding at Toronto’s Sassafraz

 

This past October Donya and Richard had their wonderful intimate wedding at the elegant Sassafraz restaurant downtown Toronto.

They saw each other for the first time that day in the lobby of the lovely Victoria hotel downtown and then we headed to Sassafraz for the ceremony.

It rained that day but they did not seem to mind. We still had a few photos taken outside around Yorkville and then decided to hop on a cab and go to the Novotel hotel for more fun. People there were extremely accommodating and allowed us to shoot inside. We took advantage of their modern interior and incorporated a lot of colour into our collection. We had lots of laughs and simply played around. On the way back I left my hat in a Beck cab and the kind driver came to my home next day to give it back to me. It feels so good whenever one comes across good deeds. Makes the heart expand :)

This is the kind of day we had together. I also really enjoyed myself with the kitchen staff at Sassafraz (have to say, everybody there is so professional and friendly!) and took photos while they were plating their wonderful, super tasty dishes.

I should also mention the couple’s guests: what a nice crowd! Friendly, caring, entertaining and more!

Donya and Richard, hope your fantastic honeymoon in Argentina is fabulous and can’t wait to hear your stories! Congratulations and may you enjoy lots and lots of travels!

Hugs, Manuela.

Downtown Toronto Iranian wedding with colour and style

 

Iranian weddings are intricate and rich in meaning. I have always been fascinated with the Sofreh (the display used during the Iranian ceremony) which holds together items that symbolize love, abundance, a sweet life, fertility. It is a beautiful way for the couple to be wished well and sent off on their new journey.

Yasmine and Reza have minutely and elaborately chosen the details for their big day. Starting with the colourful rooms at the Park Hyatt for their getting ready photos and ending with the reception held at the quaint Arta Gallery located in the Distillery District. All in all, the day has been colourful, eventful, emotional. And filled with a lot of high energy.

Their guests greeted the couple with a lot of clapping and singing which made the ceremony feel even more festive. The rhythms were truly exhilarating.

The reception that followed was lots of fun, with nice surprises the couple had reserved for their guests. A joy to witness!

 

Yasmine and Reza, congratulations to you and may your new life together be nothing short of sweet and abundant!

Manuela

Claudia and Thomas’s fun wedding at the Old Mill, Toronto

 

Claudia and Thomas’s wedding at the Old Mill in Toronto was nothing short of fun, elegant, laid back, emotion filled. A beautiful celebration with friends and family wrapped in high energy. Simply a delight to capture.

We connected really well from the moment we sat down for the initial consultation. I really enjoyed chatting with them and hearing everything they had to share about their vision of the wedding day. It is always a great pleasure for me to work with such great people and to be there with and for them while they experience some of the most memorable moments of their lives.

 

Claudia and Thomas, hope you are enjoying your last days in Europe. May these images help you relive your day and always remind you of the joy you have shared.

 

Congratulations! Manuela & Co.

Gorgeous winter wedding at the Hart House, Toronto

Back in September I got to spend a few quality hours at Jordan’s parents’ farm to take engagement photos of him and his future bride at the time, Kelley. I knew the fun loving couple would be amazing to be around on their wedding day. Their late January celebrations have been nothing short of exquisite, tasteful, elegant. I was delighted to learn that they planned for an outdoor wedding ceremony at the Hart House. And not just any kind, very well orchestrated at the most perfect time of the day, so it could be candle lit. The couple was blessed with a fairly reasonable temperature. Even though it got colder once the sun set, they managed to pull off a magical moment with all their guests in attendance. Very inspiring for a photographer who likes to see things that are unique, creative, out of the ordinary. The best trigger ever! The reception that followed offered a dreamy setting with more candles, fantastic food and great atmosphere, all within the gorgeous architectural setting of the Hart House.

 

Dear Kelley and Jordan, I feel privileged to have been part of such a special time in your lives, congratulations one more time, stay well and very happy always! Hugs, Manuela & Co.

King Valley Golf Club: Olivia and Louis’s great wedding

Olivia and Louis are a lot of fun. It has been simply effortless to capture them at their most relaxed and natural way of being. First we had a great engagement session at the Bluffs followed by their great fall wedding held at the quaint King Valley Golf and Country Club. Their day was fantastic: beautiful weather (a bit cool in the afternoon, but they were such good sports when it came down to modeling…), cocktails on the terrace, amazing food and of course, lots and lots of fun. Their friends came up with some of the most interesting game ideas which got the crowd going and the atmosphere turned exuberant. Not to mention the dancing! This bunch really loved to move! All in all, simply a great day!

Olivia and Louis, thank you for having us capture your great day, congratulations and keep on having fun together! Hugs, Manuela.

Hanna & Matthew’s beautiful summer wedding

I simply love the way Hanna and Matthew’s wedding photos stayed colourfully consistent with their engagement images we took downtown Toronto. I know how much they like vibrant tones and I am thrilled for the fact that their celebrations were such a representation of their vision. Despite the rain that decided to start just when we were on our way to Kleinburg for photos, everything ended up working out just smoothly. Umbrellas are always fun and such a romantic element that add a nice touch to the photographs.

The celebrations that followed were intensely joyous, with a lot of fun and even exotic dancers! Everybody thoroughly enjoyed each and every second.

Hanna and Matt, enjoy the years to come and make the best out of them, simply enjoying each other while walking on your new path together! Manuela

A wedding infused with colours and tradition

A few years ago I went on a lovely hike leading to a cedar making farm. On the way there, to my great surprise, we passed through the lovely grounds of Eaton Hall. At the time I did not know this little castle like property existed. Nor did I have any idea that, years later, I would get to photograph a lovely wedding right there. Needless to say how excited I was when Tiffany and Chris told me this was their chosen location for the wedding ceremony. Having done their engagement photo shoot back in May offered me the chance to knowing them better. Looking at the images we got I simply knew we were going to have some fun on their big day. I could have not asked for better weather, more picturesque surroundings and nicer subjects. The two of them have truly enjoyed themselves, along with all their close friends and lovely family members.

Tiffany and Chris, I hope this vibrant record of your day is something you will cherish for years to come and that you will both keep on recalling the lovely celebrations on a great August day! Best to you in your life together! Hugs, Manuela & Co.
