A Fresh Approach To Planning!

Shopping for the right vendors for your wedding has never been easier! We are excited to announce we will be launching a newly designed, Wedding Co. website, in October!

The Wedding Co. is your link to Toronto’s independent wedding vendors. Whether you are you planning an intimate evening at a local restaurant, a formal affair at one of the spectacular venues in the city, or a barn wedding in the country, we can help!

Our mobile friendly, clean and simple design, will allow you to shop for your wedding by category, the Toronto neighbourhood or Ontario region you live in, or by current location.

We will also keep you up to date on all the upcoming The Wedding Co. events including The Wedding Co. Market on February 22nd at the Artscape Wychwood Barns.

We are looking forward to sharing this Fresh Approach To Planning!

Hauntingly Gorgeous

Today we are featuring an inspiration shoot by a talented group of wedding artisans inspired by the Scarborough Bluffs, the often overlooked landscape is known for its cliffs and white sand beaches.

I will let photographer Angie, from Eyekahfoto, explain the rest.

“The textures of the decor was inspired by the Bluffs white sand beach, and subtle colours of the Bluffs at sunset. We wanted our decor to compliment the natural landscapes and create an ethereal atmosphere. To balance the natural textures, the golden accents from Vintage Vignettes porcelain dinner plates add a little charm and luxury.

Our hauntingly gorgeous bride is wearing Anne Sportun’s raw cognac diamond ring to compliment the golden and peachy tones of her beautiful Vera Wang gown.

Cake Glam’s delicate handmade sugar florals embellishing our cake was the perfect touch to our moody, romantic table top.

This wedding style shoot is perfect inspiration for the dreamers & hopeless romantics.”

Toronto Lovefest: Vintage Botanical

Take a look at this stunning inspiration shoot by some of Toronto’s finest wedding suppliers!

The Concept:  Share a couples personal history and their deep adoration for Toronto through the details of their wedding celebration.

The Theme:  Inspiration images, favourite colours and a strong desire to highlight our beloved city, culminated in a vintage botanical theme, in shades of burnt coral, earthy greens, creams and a touch of black.  A simple aesthetic which honours the bride’s late grandmother, an avid gardener and beekeeper.  Storied pieces were paired with modern geometric shapes to bring the past and the present together in a timeless conversation.

The Story:  Libby & Art met a few years ago at the merch booth at Massey Hall after a Bahamas show.  Both music lovers and avid concert goers, it was love at first record purchase.  It was clear in sharing their story that music would play a role.  An oversized print with the word “musica” was made to hang behind the bride as she walked down the aisle (the image originally taken on the couples trip to Italy).  The hidden and secret greenscapes of the city were echoed in the standards handmade by our wedding planner and florist.  Geometric shapes filled with cascading greenery, contrast and compliment simultaneously.  Libby & Art love a good cocktail and can be seen cuddled up at the bar at many of toronto’s finest watering holes.  So it was only natural they invite their favourite bartender to create and serve a signature cocktail at their wedding… yet another way to bring their story into their celebration.  We brought a record player to the schoolhouse for the couples first dance.  Arthur played the record they’d purchased when they first met, Bahamas, “lost in the light”.
