We absolutely love a barn wedding and have been lucky to photograph some of the best. While Toronto is known for some amazing indoor wedding venues, barn weddings set in the great Canadian outdoors can’t be beat. If you’re planning on a wedding with lots of rustic charm, a barn or farm wedding could serve as the perfect location for all your unique details. When it comes to planning for the perfect barn wedding photos, we suggest starting with your ceremony under a big tree for shade; not only will this keep your guests cool, but it will create the most flattering light for your pictures. The naturally beautiful landscape creates a really relaxing atmosphere perfect for lawn games, outdoor cocktails, and a first dance under the stars. Once you move into the nearby barn for dinner, you can wow your guests with all the rustic charm of a venue with exposed beams and raw textures. Thinking about going the elegant route? Bring in suspended chandeliers, tufted lounge furniture, and luxury dining chairs to set the mood. When it comes to creative photos with our couples, we often play it simple and let the location speak for itself. Think about a quiet walk down a country road or hanging out with your bridal party in a big open field. We’ve been known to incorporate beautiful country fences, friendly horses, and even a classic pair of cowboy boots into our couples’ creative photos.
