Anthea and Andrew created a wedding that incorporated Chinese, Korean, and Canadian wedding traditions into their day seamlessly. We started out at a beautiful air B&B in a century Toronto home where the couple got ready. They hosted a side-splittingly fun set of door games and a beautiful Chinese tea ceremony, before moving on to an elegant ceremony in a vaulted cathedral of Grace Church on the Hill. Their close friends played music, and family sat proudly in the front rows as light from the high church windows fell across the pews.
The Toronto Reference Library provided a beautiful backdrop for the photographs and reception, as well as a Korean tea ceremony performed in colourful and ornate traditional clothing. We explored the winding staircases of the library, and finished the evening with sunset photographs on the balcony as Anthea’s family presented her with gold jewellery as per the Chinese custom.
These two took me back to the university town where they met for their engagement photographs, and spent so much time laughing that I couldn’t wait to photograph them again at their wedding. Despite the rain we encountered for their photographs, they were full of laughter and fun throughout the whole day, entertained their reception with heartfelt speeches, table toasts, and a rap rhyming kissing game that kept everyone on their toes.
I absolutely love it when couples have some fun with their wedding day, and Anthea and Andrew made sure to keep their guests entertained and enjoying a fantastic time!
