The Estates of Sunny Brook

McLean House

McLean House

From the moment I drove up the road and came upon this stunning old house I knew this shoot was going to be phenomenal. Fun fact about me, I'm in love with architecture. If it's different, old or at all artistic I'm beaming at the sight. The McLean House, one of the Estates of Sunny Brook, is honestly the perfect place for an elegant wedding.  With stunning grounds to enjoy and take your photos (engagement or wedding), then to venture inside where your met by various spaces to explore. Huge windows that take in all that glorious light and old wood floors that are to die for. Upstairs there is a Bridal dressing suite that is damaskly what your dreaming of (you see what I did there ;)), including a Vanity table with a mirror and a jaw dropping tub in the bathroom that you can sit down in!

Then enter into the sweetest area to marry the love of your life that can totally be decorated in any way you could dream up. From the winding staircase to a large room to have a reception while the pianist plays, this place is the ultimate dream. I 100% had to list this as one of my featured wedding venues on my website.

The captures you're about to see are breathtaking, by an immensely talented group of wedding vendors. All will be listed below you need to check them out!

Can you tell why this place had me swooning? Honestly you have to check it out for yourself as anything in life pictures just don’t do it justice not matter how stunning they may be. And these are exquisite <3.

I hope this inspires you!

Bohemian Styled Wedding

Bohemian is one those styles that has come back with a BIG BANG! It’s everywhere and it’s coming from so many different perspectives of brides and designers. Allowing you to experiment with a non traditional imagination, mainly off white laces, tied knots and jewelry for your, head, hands and feet. The gorgeous photos you’re about to see are a collaboration of all things bohemian created by some amazing designers and photographers. This style has really transformed what your dream wedding may look like. The images below are just a few of my favourites with so much beauty involved.

For more inspiration from this shoot, it was featured on Elegant Wedding Magazines Blog, Strictly Weddings Blog, Let’s Bee Together, and Lovely Day Journal.

Featured Venue

Now the venue for this shoot was unlike most, the Oakview Terrace Reception Centre, a hidden gem in Richmond Hill. With so many diverse areas to take your wedding pictures, for the ceremony and your reception can be indoors or outdoors. Any season is perfect for this venue and the views from the reception hall are incredible. Inside is not a large space, so if you’re looking to have 200 people most likely won’t be happening here BUT if you’re having something smaller it is idyllic. I did a small wedding show there and the venue itself is so spectacular, the food was delicious and the owners are kind. OH there is even a chapel that has beautiful wood details and can be paired with so many different wedding styles. I would totally recommend this fabulous venue!
