Wedding at Parkwood Estate and Gardens Oshawa, Tosca Banquet Hall


We are extremely excited to feature an amazing wedding we had the greatest pleasure to photograph this summer in Parkwood Estates! What a magnificent location to say "I do". Parkwood is a National Historic Site and its beauty and history provided a stunning backdrop for film work, including the ‘X-men’ and ‘Hollywoodland’ with Ben Affleck.
But let's get back to our beautiful and bubbly bride. She was getting ready at the Holiday Inn at Whitby and one of the first details that stroke us was a very unique bridal bouquet that was composed of white calla lilies and... feathers! More details on www.juliesgallery.com
Shhh... while the bride is getting her make-up and hair done, a sneak peek at her sleeveless A-line wedding dress, asymmetrically dropped waistline with side beaded motif. Ah, to die for.


Look at these smiles - bridesmaids and the bride look stunning with their couture feathered hair pieces and glamorous bouquets!
We couldn't resist but capture this fun moment - the process of opening the champagne bottle. We can still remember the laughs.
Then parents arrived. What an emotional moment it was. This is why we love shooting weddings - it allows us to capture something so precious, words cannot describe.
Now, aren't you curious to see what the groom was up to all this time? He was getting ready!
This is serious business - shirt, cufflinks, tie and tuxedo are on. Last glimpse in the mirror: hairstyle is perfect. Time to head to the Parkwood Estates to pick up his princess-bride!
Our lovebirds chose the perfect spot to get married. We’ve been so lucky to shoot at this visually stunning and charming place.
The ceremony took place at the Sunken Garden.


The father walked his daughter down the aisle accompanied by soft music played by the musicians.

Congratulations, newlyweds! We are so happy for you!
We headed to the Parkwood Estates grounds to take formal pictures of the bridal party.
And then the "create your own pose" shots. This gang was a bunch of comedians with a mix of competitiveness. We don't know how they came up with these crazy stunts, but can only say that we had an amazing time!

We stole the newlyweds away from their guests for a little bit to capture some romantic portraits.

Can you tell they love their sunglasses? What we love about candid photography is that it captures true personalities.



Voilà! To say that our bride is a princess is an understatement!
On the way to the wedding reception we stopped by the couple's special place on Lake Ontario. A combination of water and stones makes it the perfect spot for Wedding photography.
We are at the wedding reception venue - Tosca Banquet Hall in Oshawa. To complete the wedding feather theme - a yummy Wedding Cupcake tower and elegant ostrich feather centerpieces!
Capturing the menu of the Wedding reception is no less important than the first dance. We are certain that our bride and groom put a lot of thought into food and snacks as it was delicious.
First dance as husband and wife... it's first everything for you guys on your wedding day and that is what makes it so emotional.
Dancing the night away! Guests are celebrating with our lovely couple their beginning of life together!
These beautiful wedding bands were especially designed for the couple.
We are thrilled to have captured this amazing wedding!
