Railway Museum Photo Shoot

We recently had the privilege to work with some fantastic models and vendors on a photo shoot at the Halton County Redial Railway Museum.  The location was stunning with the best props at our disposal.  The wonderful people working at the museum are all volunteers volunteering their time to restore parts of our history and they do an amazing job.

It’s an amazing spot for a themed photo shoot or just to visit and take a ride in a vintage street car or train.  We wanted to post a sneak peek at some of our work as well as the amazing creations of the contributing vendors.  All these unbelievable wedding vendors and models have come through for us on less than a week’s notice, which shows the commitment they have to their clients and people they work with.  We are so grateful.  Here are some images.  We hope you enjoy them.

The stunning wedding dresses were provided by a very talented and hardworking wedding gown designer Magdalena Gmyr who’s currently working on her 2012 collection. We can’t wait to see what she creates.  You can see her creations in Martha Stewart Weddings along with other magazines and shows.

The veils were courtesy of another very talented Toronto based veil designer Sharon Chironda from Posh Veils.  Her veils are stunning and as the name suggests – posh.  We loved them.

Makeup and Hair were done by a wonderful team of Sonia Faustino (make-up) and Chris Hassel (hair) from Dynamic Images Professional Hair and Make-up.  They did a terrific job by applying their creativity to match the feel of the shoot, the dresses and accessories.  Special thanks goes to this team for pulling through, against all odds, 2 days before the shoot.

If you’re looking for unbelievable floral creations and decorations make sure you visit DeRose Designs & Floral Boutique.   Lisa DeRose was kind enough to create  stunning bouquets and boutonnieres for us on very short notice.  Not only is she extremely creative and talented, but also a fantastic woman who values and takes care of her clients going above and beyond for them.  Her lovely floral boutique is something to see so if you’re a future bride make sure you stop by to see it or visit her at a wedding show.

The jewelery on most of our models was provided by a wedding accessories and jewelery designer Karolina Keeler.  Her exquisite collections are featured in Wedding Bells, WedLuxe magazines.  Her pieces are very high end, elegant, and timeless.

Ayoma Fonseka from Ayoma Cakes has devoted so much of her time that she didn’t really have, by staying up all night to create a true masterpiece of a wedding cake.  She created a “My Fair Lady” themed cake to match our elegant somewhat 50’s inspired theme.  Ayoma has been featured in many publications and she’s a wonderful woman who also treated us to cake tasting when we came to return the cake.  Needless to say it was delicious.

All our invitations were provided by Sandra Fernandes from Small Impressions.  Her invitations are masterpieces and having her creations featured in multiple wedding publications is a testament to that.  Stay tuned to see more of her work.

We decided to have two different photo shoots on the same day and Sally from The House of the Rising Cake donated 3 of her adorable mini cakes to achieve that result.  Sally is extremely artistic and we can’t wait to see more of her creations.
