The Great Hall Bridal Look Book Video

This spring, a group of Toronto wedding vendors got together to create a bridal look book filled with wedding style inspiration and ideas for the upcoming wedding season.  You saw a few of my photographs from the shoot on the blog a few weeks back, and now I'm here to add the beautiful video from the day created by Jessica from Charuk Studios, who was both our videographer and concept stylist for the day. 

Hooked on that bright, airy, minimalist vibe, we of course chose The Great Hall as our wedding venue.  With its' perfect high ceilings, wooden floors, white walls, and big windows, this venue is a photographers' dream! Jessica pulled together a variety of styles using different dresses and accessories from local designers and stores like Maureen Patricia Bridal, Ferre Sposa, the LuvyT Shop, and florist Mimi & Ry.  Many of the dresses were beautiful shades of off-white, from a lovely dove grey wrap dress, to a soft blue tulle piece, to compliment the pastel colours of the spring wedding season, and to play with some more creative bridal looks.  Our hair and makeup team UnoJo and Prerna & Co. did a fabulous job of creating several different and beautiful hair and makeup styles for our bridal looks.  From soft wavy curls, to elegant up-do's, to beautiful waterfall braids, I had so much fun shooting such a variety of looks!

Take a look at Jessica's stunning video below, and checkout the rest of the photos from my blog post a few weeks ago if you missed it.

The Great Hall Spring Wedding Inspiration

If you haven't guessed yet, The Great Hall is absolutely one of my favorite Toronto venues to shoot at.  The combination of bright walls, killer light, and a variety of unique spaces, from elegant whitewashed rooms to a gorgeous old mezzanine theatre make it top of my list for weddings and creative shoots.  This bridal shoot was inspired by the coming spring weather and its' pastel colours that we were eagerly awaiting to arrive in Toronto.  I teamed up with branding videographer Jessica Charuk of Charuk Studios, as well as an incredibly talented team of local vendors, to create both photo and video footage of the day.  I can't wait to show you Jessica's finished video soon, this lady rocks behind the camera!

I had a little bit of extra time on this shoot working with both a videographer and second shooter Emily Jarrett Photography, so I spent some time experimenting with some movement and different lighting on film.  I hope you enjoy. :)
