This is one beautiful downtown location that oozes architectural beauty. This unique backdrop provides me with hours of photography day dreaming and inspires my imagination.
Elegant rooms, secluded passageways and old staircases alongside the striking visuals on the outside put it at the top of my bucket list for the time being. The diversity of photography options that comes with the wedding venue are endless and that is exciting. 
Hart House is part of the University of Toronto and so could be a very sentimental location to capture your love story if you were an old student.

I think a picture speak a million words in this instance. The Royal Conservatory of Music located in Toronto is a breathtaking spot for a wedding. Natural light floods into this incredible space which makes my photography heart excited. 
This location has an abundance of style and elegance. With the right wedding planner and tasteful decoration it is transformed into an oasis, an escape from the city within the city.

Stratus Vineyards / Niagara-On-The-Lake

Wow, wow, wow! Such a hip, unique and totally cool ceremony room. Stratus Vineyards is one hell of a spot to spend your wedding day. The character and originality of this venue is a dream for those with a creative mind. From a photography standpoint I feel like you almost cannot go wrong with this wedding location. There is diversity and a real organic, rustic but artistic feel to the place. 
For these reasons there is no way I could not include it within my bucket list.

Now this wedding venue is totally up my alley as we say in England. I love the rustic, farm, shabby chic styles that this location provides. You can make the space what you want with the right team and talent behind you. 
The inside of the barn is clearly a statement maker but there are awesome photography spots all around this venue that make it a sure fix on my top 10 bucket list. From the striking red outside of the barn and the tree lined road to the long grassy fields and vine covered walls. All your photography needs are met in one great place (with a little walking). 

Graydon Hall Manor / Toronto

This photo alone put this wedding venue on my bucket list without me delving any deeper into researching it. How impressive is this beautiful conservatory room with trees breaking through the ceiling?! I don't think there is a wedding photographer in the world who wouldn't want to photograph a wedding here. 
Graydon Hall Manor is a very sophisticated wedding venue in Toronto that overlooks the Don Valley. The courtyards, entrances, quaint rooms, luscious kept gardens are all the aspects that tug on my photography heart to shoot here. It doesn't matter where you choose to host your ceremony within the ground or what season of the year, it all would work to produce incredible photography. 

Stonefields / Beckwith, Ottawa

If your not seeing a theme arising yet I'll give you a clue...I love old barns, rustic themed weddings and oodles of natural light. Okay so that was more than a hint lol.
There is no denying the beauty of this barn venue at Stonefields in Beckwith. The well kept grounds and spectacular country scenery only enhance the benefits of hosting your big day here. Again the photography backdrop options are limitless and diverse, especially with the addition of their new event loft space pictured above. I would be honoured to add this dreamy, organic venue to my wedding photography portfolio. 

Evergreen Brickworks / Toronto

This is a location I have actually photographed at many times, however never for a wedding. The Evergreen Brickworks is definitely a more expensive wedding venue but when you see photography like this you can see why it is worth every dollar. 
The character of the buildings here is both dramatic and raw. The vibe is very industrial but when twinned with wedding elegance is almost impossible to describe. The surrounding grounds are full of forestry, graffiti walls, ponds, wooden walkways, exposed brick buildings and tree lined paths. Photography backdrop diversity at its finest.  
When I finally get to tick this monster location off of my bucket list I will enjoy a large glass of champagne and pat myself on the back.

Kurtz Orchard / Niagara-On-The-Lake

My Bucket List could not be complete without a vineyard location and Kurtz Orchard is my #1 pick! This wedding venue is in Niagara-On-The-Lake and allows for the purest photography. It brings a fresh take on vineyard weddings with exquisite natural beauty. Country pathways, orchards, forestry, vines, fields, it truly has it all. 
If I could shoot boho chic themed intimate outdoor wedding here I would be photography paradise. 
I'll be popping this gem in my bucket list prayers!

Drake Devonshire / Wellington

Now this is my trendy pick. The Drake Devonshire in Wellington is unique and fulfills my need for hip and outthere wedding locations. It also fills the void for water as its on the edge of a stunning lake. I love everything about this Wedding venue from the feature back wall the the way your guests sit in rows looking out on the lake as you say your vows. 
There is nothing not to love for those modern couples looking for a blend of country cottage and city cool.
