Details from Z and M's Wedding!

Hey y'all! Hope you are having a lovely fall season so far! I personally am loving fall this year which is odd as I used to dread this time of the year! However what can I say, the opportunity to wear layers and drink Hot chocolate while cozying up with a blanket (not that it's that cold yet) to read a book has just won me over! I am currently in editing season, trying to wrap up all the weddings I had the opportunity to cover this past summer and so here is a blog post of one of those beautiful weddings! Due to client privacy requests however I can only share details from this wedding. Enjoy the blog post!

Safia and Abdurahman's "Golden Elegance" Wedding

Hi Hi Hi! It's been a while but welcome to my latest blog post! This wedding took place at the Verdi Convention Centre in the West end of Toronto. I can only share details from this wedding due to client request but as usual the details were beautiful! The colour scheme for this wedding was filled with touches of gold, and it all looked so elegant. The bride had two entrances and opted for a most lovely Sari for her first entrance while her bridesmaids wore a simple but chic Diraq (traditional Somali outfit)! For the second entrance, the bride wore a lovely white dress with a a gorgeous low cut back.  Some interesting things about this wedding were that it featured the traditional Buranbur (A Somali traditional dance circle) and some live Somali Singers. One really cool thing though was the custom ice sculpture that was done by Nandasins, a man who took second place (if I remember correctly) at last year's Bloor-Yorkville Ice Sculpture competition (see last photo in blog post for image of ice-sculpture)! Nandasins and his wife also cater desserts and were at the event at the time, setting up their dessert stand. I had a quick chat with him and that's how I found out about him being a past winner of the Ice sculpture competition. All in all the details from this wedding were beautiful and I think it serves as a beautiful inspiration for those thinking of going with Gold as part of their Wedding colour scheme!

I still have dates open for summer weddings up until the date of September 1st. Get in touch if you are still looking for a photographer.

Wedding Details from H and A's wedding

Salaam Everyone! So today's blog post features details from the wedding of a pair of doctors who came all the way from England to have their beautiful wedding in Toronto (where the bride is from)! Purple was the main colour here and everything was fab! From the gorgeous backdrop and canopy created by Dream Wedding Decor to the lovely floral centrepieces crafted by Zuhoor Designs (she also did the bride's bouquet). Guys trust me if you ever need a florist Zuhoor Designs is the way to go! Her creativity knows no boundaries when it comes to floral arrangements and If you haven't already checked out the blog post before this one to see the wonderful floral crown she created for a portrait shoot I did then please do so!

I cannot share the actual outdoor portraits of the bride and groom that we took due to client privacy but let me tell you it was a super cold and windy fall day so I have to give kudos to the bride and groom for sticking it out as long as possible during our outdoor wedding portrait session. Enjoy the blog post!

Details from I & F's wedding

Hey Everyone! Glad to have you here! I am uber excited about today's blog post! I can only share details due to client privacy but I just absolutely love how much thought was put into the little details at this wedding. Everything from the bride's dress to the sweet table at the reception was amazing! I also think I am now in love with "Blush Pink" as a wedding colour. A little backstory; the bride was one of the first people to give me a chance when I was first starting out with wedding photography by booking me for her friend's wedding a few years back. It was nice to come full circle and capture her wedding this time around MashAllah. Enjoy the blog post!
