Girlfriends. Always there, no matter what! Our Toronto wedding photographers had the great pleasure of working with Kathlyn and her amazing wedding party. We photographed big smiles, joyful interactions, and quiet happiness all day – at Kathlyn’s house, during the ceremony, in the Liberty Village area of downtown Toronto where the photos below were taken, and later, at the reception at the wonderful and eclectic SCHOOL Restaurant. It makes our job as Toronto wedding photographers easy when love abounds. After all, the camera only captures what’s there!
We love that painted wall. What a great backdrop. We remember when Liberty Village was a factory area that produced a variety of things. The Barrymore furniture factory was located there. Over time, the area became grungy, and, as manufacturing stopped, those empty warehouses started to fill with artists, film makers and other people working in the creative arts. Now, the area has become a vibrant community. Tens of thousands of people live in the many condos that have sprung up. They have exciting choices in restaurants, entertainment, galleries, and lifestyles.
You can explore Liberty Village during Jane’s Walk in May. The annual event is named after renowned Toronto urban planning thinker and writer Jane Jacobs. It first began in Toronto in 2007 following Jacobs’ death and has since spread to 85 cities in 19 countries. The event gives people a chance to explore and learn about neighbourhoods, and talk about what people can do to make a city more livable. About 5,000 tour leaders and participants hit Toronto’s streets and one of those tours was in Liberty Village.
If you are looking for a great location for engagement or wedding photos, you might want to check out Liberty village. As Toronto wedding photographers we love working there. Permits are not required as the area is public, so there is no fee. Definitely worth checking out if you want a historical look to your photos.
