Trinity Banquet Hall
I don’t work a lot of weddings in the Kitchener area but when I do, a lot of them seem to happen here at Trinity Banquet Hall. On the surface it’s a pretty simple venue but it gives couples the opportunity to completely customize everything to their own tastes. They transition the ceremony and reception space during cocktail hour. There is an outdoor picnic area on one side of the venue for a simple portrait session. And a church for formal ceremonies on the other side. A great option for budget-conscious couples.
These two had a fusion wedding mixing Korean and Western traditions. The couple originally had a civil ceremony in Korea for the bride’s family. They even planned to lives there for a year. However, their situation changed and they’re moving back to Canada. So now they are having a Korean Ceremony here for the groom’s family. Whether you see this as a renewal of vows or a wedding ceremony is really up to you. I suppose it’s a bit of both, but still very beautiful. This was my first Korean wedding so there are a lot of photos to share.
Korean Wedding Ceremony
My favorite part about Toronto are the fusion weddings. We are a hotpot of different cultures. And my job as a photographer not only lets me learn about different wedding traditions but also how they merge together to create new ones. Having photographed many multicultural weddings over the years, I have always held the belief that true love can bloom no matter who you are or where you’re from. Indeed, there’s always a beautiful love story to be found. So join me in sharing my favorite memories from this multicultural wedding day.
This truly special couple held their simple ceremony and celebration at the Trinity Banquet. During the Korean wedding ceremony, both bride and groom wear the hanbok, a traditional Korean wedding dress. The hanbok represents thousands of years of tradition. This couple wore matching pink and purple hanboks. The couple recited their vows in both languages to honour both backgrounds. Afterward, the bride and groom seal their vows by bowing and sipping wine. The ceremony was quick and over within twenty minutes. However, it had so many beautiful elements going on.
