Canadiana Style Shoot


As the Canada 150 celebrations kick into full swing this week, we want to share this amazing “Canadiana” themed style shoot. Designed by Wendy of Asian Fusion Weddings and captured by Rhythm Photography, this truly Canadian party was shot at the historic Bob Rumball Manor in Toronto.

Wendy shared with us the Canadian inspiration behind the shoot:

“There are so many things that come to mind, and initially most would gravitate towards our natural resources.  The West Coast is Canada’s gateway to the Asia-Pacific.  It offers many forestry related goods such as lumber, newsprint and other paper products.  British Columbia is also known for mining, fishing, fruit orchards and wine.

Our Prairie provinces of Saskatchewan is Canada’s largest producer of grains and oilseeds, while Alberta boasts the world famous Lake Louise in the Rocky Mountains in addition to its cattle ranches and rich fossil fuel deposits.  Manitoba’s top tourist activities in the province include watching beluga whales and polar bears, hiking, horseback riding, and camping, with visitors making the most of more than 50 national and provincial parks.

Ontario borders five great lakes and our Niagara region is known for its vineyards, wines and fruit crops.  Ontario is also the hub of industry and exports.  Quebec is the home to the majority of Canada’s French speaking population and is Canada’s largest producer of hydro electricity.

We then end up at east coast with the Atlantic provinces (Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia) which are known for fishing, farming, forestry and mining.”

“The spring board for the colour scheme was inspired by the lumberjack red and black plaid.  It was then paired with silver grey for The Rocky Mountains and mining industries.  The various wood tones represent our vast forestry lands and the little hint of fur reminds us of our past fur trade days that were once a very significant industry for Canadians.”

“We were incredibly fortunate to showcase all Canadian talent for this shoot.  Every item in our shoot was either Canadian designed and/or Canadian made starting with the wedding gown by Mikaella, bridal accessories, the groom’s attire, stationery, floral arrangements, and so many more.  Many of our gorgeous blooms were even grown locally in Ontario.  They included the tulips, anemones, ranunculus, spray roses, cherry blossom and carnations.”

“We showcased signature food items from the various regions of Canada like Prince Edward Island potatoes that were made into French fries, topped with gravy and cheese curds.  This dish is called poutine and originates from Quebec.  The British Columbia salmon was glazed with maple syrup made in Ontario.   The mussels were from Prince Edward Island.  The array of cheeses, pork, bacon and wild game smoke meats were from Ontario, Alberta and Quebec.”

About me

I’ve had the wedding and event planning gene since the day I was born and turned a hobby into my dream job 7 years ago when I accepted a position as an Event Coordinator with a local golf club. I met some wonderful couples and shared in some truly beautiful love stories. Along the way, two of my nephews were born and it was instant love. I wanted to spend as much time with them as I could and working for a venue meant I was all over the place with a very erratic schedule. I also felt like I was missing something. I was already volunteering my time to a local charity, the New Animal Shelter for Uxbridge-Scugog, and it fed my soul to do what I loved (event planning) and give back in a meaningful way. I wondered how I could turn that into a career and literally, the perfect opportunity fell into my lap. I now spend my days planning events for the Jennifer Ashleigh Children’s Charity. It is amazing to know that each event we plan means more dollars available for children and families across Ontario who are in desperate need of help. You may be wondering where my wedding planning love has been directed these days. I am thrilled to be part of the team at Nestleton Waters Inn, working with a fantastic group of ladies to make beautiful wedding dreams come true. Recently, I got to thinking that something else was missing. It came down to a simple fact – I love writing! So, it’s the perfect fit for me to be writing with The Wedding Opera team. It is my honour to share the best of the wedding world with all of you. Grab a cup of tea and join us!
