Oakville Conference Centre Wedding Photography 792Hema and Kevin's Oakville Conference Centre Wedding

Hema and Kevin's chic and romantic wedding at Oakville Conference Centre was a two day dream! The bride and groom had a Cristian and a Hindu wedding ceremony. On the big day, the couple decided to have a first look at the Quality Suites Oakville, where the bride and groom got ready for the special event. Our wedding photographers captured a series of splendid candid photos during the first look. During our consultations, I always suggest couples to take 10 minutes on their wedding day to have a first look. First, that gives them a few minutes together, before seeing their family and guests. Second, our photographers can use the opportunity to create beautiful documentary images that couples love. Also, the first look is a once in a lifetime event that elicits various emotions, from tears to laughters.

After the first look, we were supposed to head to Gairloch Gardens with the bridal party for a series of creative portraits and group photos. Unfortunately, as it often happens, the girls' hair and makeup was late so we had to wait. As the light was splendid in the hotel lobby, I took the opportunity to take a few photos of the couple and portraits of the beautiful bride and the handsome groom. Fashionably late, the girls came and we all jumped in the limo to the gardens. Often on the wedding day things don't go according to the plan and it is important for couples to build time buffers on their timeline. If the makeup artist tells you that you'll need 1 hours, then allocate 2 hours. That way you will avoid the stress and you will fully enjoy the best day of your life!

Following a 5 minute creative session, we took a series of group photos using the beautiful backdrops of the garden as our background, then everyone headed to Oakville Conference Centre for a catholic wedding ceremony. The beautiful bride is Hindu and the groom is Catholic so we were invited to document the Hindu ceremony as well. Afterwards, wearing traditional Indian outfits, the bride and groom had a photo shoot at Benares Museum. It was a fun session and we had a chance to create some beautiful images reminiscent of Bollywood movies.

Wedding Photography Permits

Please note that both Gairloch Gardens and Benares Museum require photography permits. As they are some of the most sought after locations, please make sure you book them in advance. Also, it is customary for the establishments to book two or three permits at the same time and you might need to wait for the other wedding parties to finish their photo shoots. I love when the bride and groom book several locations that allow the photographers to create different looks including greenery, the Lake Ontario, architecture in addition to the genuine love that is so apparent on the special day.

Once we finished the creative session of Indian wedding photography, we headed to the wedding venue for the reception! The banquet hall was lavishly decorated with white and purple accents. We were impressed by the talented family members who danced, sang and gave beautiful speeches.

Hema and Kevin

This very photogenic couple is beautiful outside and inside. Hema is a kind, loving person and Kevin is an amazing listener and a great speaker. He gave one of the most beautiful speeches I have ever heard. Thank you for allowing us to be part of your special day! We wish you a long and happy life together! If the past is an indication of the future, I could see us meet at some other members of your family's marriages and we are looking forward to it!
