Tucked away from the bustling cityscape of Toronto, you’ll find Graydon Hall Manor — or as I will now refer to it — the site of one of the loveliest garden weddings I’ve ever laid eyes on. The warm flagstone walls against the bride’s elegant dress and stunning rose and orchid bouquet will keep you reeling through the whole gallery of moments captured by Daring Wanderer. So have at it, and cheerio!
From Daring Wanderer… This wedding is a photographers dream. So full of colour & beautifully matched decor which took place at Graydon Hall, a manor tucked away in north Toronto. It’s an oasis among high rises and highways and I am so honoured to have been able to capture this day for Kaylay & Alvin.
From the bride & groom:
How did you decide on your venue and location?
We wanted to have a (Victorian) english garden themed wedding. We only checked out three locations and Alvin loved Graydon Hall the most. It was perfect because we wanted a venue that was a one stop shop with a beautiful chapel just in case it rained. The combination of elegant, vintage decor and beautifully manicured grounds was exactly when we wanted.
Advice for future couples?
Focus on the elements that are really important to you then stick to how you want it to be. The rest of the not so important elements be a little flexible.
Favourite moment from the wedding?
Kaylay – My favourite moments were the butterfly release and my mom’s speech because it was so heartfelt. She never shows that side of her to me.
Alvin – My favourite moment was when I saw Kaylay in her dress for the first time. We lived together for years but we decided not to see each other from the night before until Kaylay walked down the aisle.
