Black Creek Pioneer Village Wedding Guide


To become a successful Toronto wedding photographer one does not need thousands of award winning shots. Today, clients are more interested in a clean coverage on the wedding day. As such, this portrait of the bridal party fulfils that need to document the big day. Simple and clean! This album spread features two Black Creek Pioneer Village wedding portraits taken in front of The Half Way House after the wedding ceremony.

If you are not familiar with the Half Way House, it is a Georgian building built in 1848. The original location of the house was at Midland Avenue and  Kingston Rd. After serving different purposes, it was relocated to Pioneer Village in 1966. To operate today, the two storey house went through significant renovations. If you have a Pioneer Village wedding, this is one of the places where you must take photos. Also, it is one of the most recognisable buildings in the whole complex. 

The second image in this spread was taken in front of the same building. In stark opposition to the first shot, this is a more romantic one. It portrays the couple in a dramatic pose where the groom is dipping the bride. 

This wedding photo proves that love has no age. Here, the bride and groom are not the typical twenty-something youngster. However, the love between them was so apparent that I did not have to direct them to obtain some of the best wedding photos I have seen.

The historical site boasts plenty of old buildings, many resettled from a other places in Ontario. Among then, my favourite is the Town Hall, the wedding chapel and the old school. Because of its beauty and the multitude of gardens and buildings, perfect for wedding photography, the establishment compete successfully with other wedding venues. Among them we can enumerate Casa Loma, Doctor's House and a series of country clubs, all of them appropriate for rustic weddings.
