Here is the follow up to Shiraine & Raymond’s Hindu Ceremony. Their Buddhist ceremony was the following Sunday. We started off the day with a bridal party photoshoot at Guildwood Park. But just before that we did a quick first look outside of their hotel. As you can see, Raymond can truly appreciate how beautiful Shiraine looked that day. After the bridal party shoot was completed Shiraine had left to the salon to get re-dolled up for her Buddhist wedding. Adorned in a stunning white and gold dye cut saree, Shiraine walked down the aisle on traditional Sinhalese fashion accompanied by dancers and drummers. The ceremony is a very familial event including much involvement from the parents and dropping betel leaves to honour past ancestors. Directly following the Buddhist ceremony was a cocktail hour for the guests and then the reception. Ray and Shiraine entered with their bridal party and right into a choreographed number! With some loving words, good food, and non-stop dancing. Everyone was in for a good night!
Hope you enjoy some of our faves 🙂

So it’s time for another blog post. This time it’s a wrap up of Niroshan and Renee’s story with their wedding reception.
Before their reception we shot at the Hilton Suites in Markham. I’ve always driven by this hotel and loved how the glass windows go up all the way to the top of the building front of the building as the actual building is a U shape with the glass connect both ends.
Niroshan and Renee are always fun to work with and they always do whatever we ask them to and this time we had them jump on the bed fully dressed and the photos really showed how much of a fun couple they are. Their reception was at Scarborough Convention Centre and included a fun filled reception with an introduction dance, speeches, and a hilarious reenactment by their friends of their first meet (along with ACTUAL video footage of that first time)! How sweet and thoughtful is that?!
Here are some of our favourites from their day!
We got home around 2:30am that night and packed our luggage because we had a 10am flight to Jamaica the next day!
As the first couple who booked us for their wedding, Niroshan and Renetha will always have a special place in our hearts. They had faith and confidence in us and we’ll never forget that. We are so glad with how quickly they switched from clients to friends – such an easy going, amazing couple. We had fun shooting them from beginning to end and hope to build many more relationships with clients like we have with them.
Wishing them nothing but the absolute best that this world can offer,
