Toronto Wedding Film | Holcim Waterfront Estate, Ontario | Audrey + Jonathan

We began our 2017 wedding season with a bang, opening with Audrey and Joanathan’s wedding at Holcim Waterfront Estate. It was the perfect way to ease into our busiest period, with a single venue and lots of beautiful moments to capture. We had emotional letters, a stunning first look, sparklers and a kick-ass dance party.

Toronto Wedding Venue: Holcim Waterfront Estate

There are some truly beautiful wedding venues in close proximity to Toronto. Holcim Waterfront Estate (Formaly Harding Waterfront Estate) has to be among our our favourites. Its a beautifully restored house set right next to Lake Ontario. There’s the lawn for the wedding ceremony, characterful rooms for bridal preparation and a spacious tent for the reception. But the best part is just how many great spots there within the grounds for a creative shoot. What about that cute little beach at the end of the estate? I think one of my favourite shots is Audrey out on the little spit waiting for Jonathan to meet her.

Some Simple but Effective Wedding Video Ideas

If you’re looking for some ideas for your wedding, this wedding film is a great place to start. Audrey and Jonathan certainly didn’t go over-the-top with their plans, but they had all the ingredients that allowed us to make a great video. For us, having genuine moments are key. Moments where anyone who watches the film can get a glimpse into the personality and life of a couple.

We had emotional letters, with both Audrey and Jonathan getting a little choked up. Then there’s the first look, which is a great moment of pure happiness. Later in the evening we had them surrounded by close friends cheering and waving sparklers. And finally there’s a super awesome party, complete with dance offs and goofy moves. There were so many other great moments throughout the day, but for us, these are the highlights. We get to explore a range of emotions which makes their film dynamic. Even at just 4 minutes in length, you get to experience a shared journey with the couple.  It really was a great day. We hope you enjoy!
