When we first met with Kathy and George about their wedding videography and wedding video, we knew this was a wedding couple with spark! When we arrived at The Hair Studio at Ashgrove Spa to film bridal prep of Kathy & some of her bridesmaids’ having their hair done, we were greeted by a bride who was totally enthused and in a party mood! That set the tone for a joy filled and exciting wedding day. The couple’s wedding ceremony took place in Markham at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church. When we walked inside for the first time, we were very impressed with the beautiful church murals and mosaics, the unique dome ceiling, rich colors, and dark, rich wood trim everywhere. It made for beautiful wedding cinematography! The ceremony was poignant and sweet, and immediately after, the happy couple were whisked away to downtown Toronto in a white vintage Rolls Royce. As wedding videographers, we love a jaw dropping location for the creative videography session and for interiors, it’s hard to beat the charming Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Front Street. The happy couple rented a gorgeous suite for their wedding photos and cinematography and we captured some stunning shots using steadicam and cinematic slider. An hour later we were shooting video of the elegantly decorated reception hall at the historic Eglinton Grand in midtown Toronto. The room was elegantly decorated with an art deco theme, most stunning were the lofty feather adorned centerpieces and the lavish head tables. The wedding reception was fantastic… one of the highlights of the evening was a surprise performance by an aerialist who provided a Cirque de Soliel type performance, performing breathtaking acrobatic maneuvers some 20 feet directly above the crowd. As you’ll see in this highlights wedding video, this was a wedding full of fun and joy… a wedding to remember! Enjoy!

Nicole & John at 99 Sudbury | Toronto Wedding Videography
“Nicole & John at 99 Sudbury, Toronto” Produced by Summerfield Films | Directed by John Summerfield | Videography by John Summerfield & Sri Vemuri
As wedding videographers, our work usually begins the morning of the wedding. However, after our first meeting with Nicole & John, it was agreed that a wedding videography related trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia several months before their wedding was a must. You see, Nicole grew up in Nova Scotia and much of her family and many of her friends are there. So this past June, we arrived in Halifax and started filming a bit early for their wedding video. First was their engagement party at a rustic family cottage on a picturesque lake a half-hour from Halifax. Friends and family gathered to celebrate Nicole & John’s engagement and approaching wedding with music, food, and a very touching lakeside candlelight ceremony. The next evening, celebrations took place at an East Coast Party at a waterfront restaurant in nearby Dartmouth. Several months later, on a Saturday in September we captured Nicole & John’s wedding day. It was a magic day with many memorable moments. Their downtown Toronto wedding ceremony was held at a Catholic church followed by a their reception at the loft-like venue 99 Sudbury near Liberty Village. Their east coast celebrations AND their wedding day were a lot to fit into their 3-4 minute highlights wedding video but we think we did pretty well! Enjoy!
Cambridge Mill Wedding | Toronto Wedding Video Videography
Nancy & Mina began their wedding day in Mississauga for their bridal and groom prep, and were married in an afternoon ceremony there at a Coptic Orthodox Church. Everyone then hopped into the limo and travelled to Cambridge (near Kitchener-Waterloo) for their reception at the Cambridge Mill. What a fabulous venue, rustic and historic, right on the sleepy Grand River… so picturesque! The guest and head tables featured centerpieces and other decorative elements that were equally as rustic as the Mill, incorporating materials like old barnboard, burlap and mason jars. A couple of high points for us on the wedding videography side were the cigars that came out during wedding photos by the river (enjoyed by girls and boys alike!), and the grand entrance by the wedding couple, which ignited a very intense Harlem Shake by the bridal party.
