A winter wedding at The Old Mill in Toronto with a journalistic style using a lot of video light and off camera flash. The ceremony was light by candlelight only as it was late in the day and dark outside and the reception room had great ambiance for outdoor lights that shone through the large wall to wall windows. This wedding had a lot of great moments, speeches and fun with the bride and groom and their amazing family and friends.
I always try and get a ring photograph on the day of the wedding if possible.
The “first look”session took place on the patio and remember it’s late day winter so the lights inside the restaurant add mood and I love the people watching while you see the reflection of the bride coming to meet her groom.
The first look session is a great idea if you’re getting married late in the day over late fall or winter as you will be losing your light early.
We had very little time so we stayed in the courtyard of The Old Mill and made the best of the space for bridal party, family and bride groom photos.
After a quick break in the bridal suite we made our way to the ceremony
The Old Mill chapel is very dark to begin with and has gorgeous candle light for mood. The ceremony was short and sweet and now it’s time to party.
It is very very rare that I will get my couples to stop during the recessional, but this chapel warranted a kiss in the aisles and because we had such a tight timeframe I wanted to grab as many moments as I could.
I grabbed every opportunity I could for portraits during our walks from one location to another. David, my second shooter carried a video light and took some beautiful portraits inside the old mill.
A red velvet couch, a mirror and a shiny floor were all great reasons to stop in this hallway for a portrait.
Speeches are about to begin with a toast from the MC.
