{Malaparte Toronto Ontario Wedding Photography}

Photographing a wedding day for any couple is heartwarming, but when it's an old friend from over two decades ago, it's super extra special! I had the best day following Danielle and her handsome boys around downtown Toronto for their lovely wedding celebration.

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Romantic summer downtown Toronto wedding !

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: the ceremony with all our family and friends, our son actually walked down the aisle!! Taking photos around the city and stealing a quick moment alone before being introduced into the reception
Groom: getting Ethan (our son) ready in his outfit, our first glance, dancing the night away

Best wedding related decision:  our venue was amazing!

Favourite detail: the flowers by Pocket of Posies 

Advice for future brides & grooms: we got the advice from our officiant that once the wedding gets started it's like a train, once it starts in motion you can't stop it so don't stress just go with the flow. The other piece of advice is to try to steal a few minutes just for yourselves as newly weds before the chaos and fun of the night pull you in different directions

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I would have splurged for the bubbly!

Best surprise of the day: Ethan walked down the aisle! We weren't sure that was going to work out!

Anything else you'd like to add: Our cake was incredible, so beautiful and so incredibly delicious we were so happy to have left overs!

Anna + Jeremy

Anna & Jeremy had an intimate wedding with their immediate family and closest friends! They had a beautiful winter day with lots of sunshine, which almost made us forget the cold! My favourite shot is the last one with the sunset reflection against the One London Place!

Chantel + Jason
{London Ontario Wedding Photography}

This day....was perfect! From the getting ready all the way to the fun dancing! I think everyone should have a live band - it brings such a different element to the reception! Chantel and Jason were so fun and easy going and their wedding party were a blast! I suprised the bride and groom with a collage of photos of the wedding party while they were getting some shots with the videographer. I loved that there was a soccer field behind the Portugese Club - we took advantage of that for their night shot since Portugal had just won the world cup a week prior and the groom is a HUGE soccer fan! Congrats to the lovely couple!!

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Elegant, Intimate, Fun

What are your favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride:
 Stepping into my gown, walking down the isle, and having a great time with family and friends. 

Groom: Seeing my wife walk down towards me in her beautiful gown, hearing the priest say you are now husband and wife, and spending the most important day with family and friends.

Best wedding related decision: We’ve got many but a few to list are; booking our photographer, videographer and professional decorator, and deciding on a band for our reception.

Favourite detail: We loved it all. What we loved the most was the floral arrangements/centrepieces(the orchids), we had a few hollow square table designs that sat 12 guests, I was able to sit all our friends together. To this day I still get compliments from the Portuguese community that had never seen it before. 
We also had a table with photos of our guardian angels. That meant a lot to us and our families.

Advice for future brides & grooms: Enjoy the planning and most importantly the big day because in one blink the night is over. I suggest paying a good buck for a photographer and videographer because they really do capture the day and allow you to relive that moment all over again and again for the rest of your life. 

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? I wouldn’t change a thing!! It was all meant to be

Best surprise of the day: Seeing our finalized reception decor that we fell in love with, and our letters to one another that were delivered while we were getting ready

Justyna & Phil
{London Ontario Wedding Photography}

One of my favorite "styles" to shoot in is urban / downtown locations! London, Ontario has so many fantastic hidden spots in it's downtown core and I loved exploring them with Justyna, Phil & their wedding party! These out of the box locations made for some amazing pictures!

- Heather {London Ontario Wedding Photography}

Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Simple romantic 

What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: my favourite memory of the day would be my father being able to come to the wedding given the circumstances
Groom: seeing my beautiful bride walk down the aisle only to take my hand in marriage

Best wedding related decision: Choosing HRM as our photographer to captivate our once in a lifetime moment.

Favourite detail: My favourite detail about our wedding was my mother's little touches. She made all the floral center pieces and  paper flower back drop.

Advice for future brides & grooms: don't fuss over the little things, at the end of the day it's not worth the stress.

Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? A lot of little mishaps but wouldn't change a thing, loved every minute of it.

Ginny and Damien’s Wedding Photos, shot in London Ontario

Ginny and Damien had beautiful sunshine for their wedding day! Even though it was super hot out the wedding party and bride & groom were such good sports about going to different spots for their photos! Love that we got a mix of urban and some traditional at the Old Courthouse! We really enjoyed that they had mustaches on a stick for everyone in the wedding party - it made for some hilarious images! Congrats to the fun loving couple!
