Ben and Alwin’s wedding day was one of the most fun and memorable I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. A day full of very personal touches, a ton of love, a few happy tears and a lot of laughter. It was a true celebration of family and the couple’s partnership. I am so happy that I got to be a part of such a beautiful day. Hopefully I have created some images that help Ben and Alwin remember this special time in their relationship for years to come.
From the start the day was laid back and relaxed. The couple got ready together along with their brothers. A chance to capture intimate moments shared between the couple as well as the strong connection shared between them and their brothers.
We took the subway to the wedding which made for a fun backdrop for photos. Ben and Alwin stopped along the way to put up signs leading the wedding guests to the reception site. Each brightly coloured sign read “Uncle Ben & Uncle Alwin’s Wedding”. The signs were made by the couple’s nieces and nephews.
The wedding ceremony was held at St. Paul’s Church in downtown Toronto, a beautiful historic building. Family was a big part of the wedding day. Ben’s sister led the beautiful wedding service.
After the ceremony the wedding guests were led by Ben and Alwin for a short walk through downtown Toronto to the reception site which was at the Hart House on the University of Toronto campus.
A surprise choreographed first dance, full of energy and a ton of fun!
