Four Seasons Toronto Wedding Videographer

In our Loca­tion Tag series, we high­light the spe­cial places that make doing what we do eas­i­er. These inspired spaces pro­vide a beau­ti­ful set­ting and an unmatched atmos­phere for the events in our films to unfold, allow­ing our cou­ples to focus on their cel­e­bra­tion and us on our craft. As wed­ding cin­e­matog­ra­phers who care deeply about sto­ry this is of the utmost impor­tance.

Sit­ting in the heart of Toronto’s Yorkville Dis­trict, The Four Sea­sons Hotel is one of our favourite spots to shoot in the city. The clean and ele­gant rooms pro­vide a mod­ern yet cozy place for brides and grooms to get ready in the morn­ing, while the stun­ning recep­tion space fea­tures floor to ceil­ing win­dows (nat­ur­al light is a wed­ding videographer’s best friend) and a beau­ti­ful con­tem­po­rary design. We’ve filmed at the Four Sea­sons many times, and yet each time we shoot, we find a new way to frame our cou­ples and dif­fer­ent ways to shape the light. That’s the beau­ty of clean spaces, they’re present but they let the sub­ject shine. That trans­lates into a gor­geous set­ting for our cou­ples’ sto­ries.

Below is a col­lec­tion of films that, at some point or anoth­er, took place at the Four Sea­sons Hotel.

Iva + Chris

We might as well start with the wed­ding that trans­formed the Four Sea­sons into an enchant­ed for­est, Iva and Chris’. Lau­ra & Co. and Rachel Clin­gen designed an incred­i­ble expe­ri­ence with drap­ery enclos­ing the space and flow­ers explod­ing out of every cor­ner. To this day, this is one of the most jaw-dropping arrange­ments we have ever seen.

Kali + Edward

Kali and Edward’s film is dear to our hearts. From their perfectly-told engage­ment sto­ry shared at the Musko­ka cot­tage where it all hap­pened, to the tran­si­tion­al shots that bring us in and out of the wed­ding day, to Kali’s beau­ti­ful walk down the aisle and the couple’s chore­o­graphed first dance, this was one of the most metic­u­lous same-day edits we have ever put togeth­er. And although the recep­tion didn’t take place at the Four Sea­sons, Kali’s prepa­ra­tions did and it made all the dif­fer­ence. Mov­ing from room to room, this was one of the most relaxed, light-hearted and inti­mate morn­ings we’ve shared with a bride and her close friends and fam­i­ly. Remem­ber that unmatched atmos­phere we men­tioned at the top of this blog post? Well, this is the def­i­n­i­tion of that.

Noreen + AJ

Both Noreen and AJ got ready at the Four Sea­sons in Toron­to. Their wed­ding day wasn’t a show or big pro­duc­tion. There was no big reveal. They sim­ply want­ed to be togeth­er and cel­e­brate that togeth­er­ness. In fact, the first thing we did was meet the cou­ple ear­ly in the morn­ing for their gift exchange. After that, they left to have a pri­vate break­fast down in the Four Sea­sons lob­by before chang­ing and head­ing to the cer­e­mo­ny togeth­er. It was the first time we had seen any­thing like it, and it took a lit­tle get­ting used to see­ing the bride and groom in the same place so ear­ly in the day, but it was com­plete­ly nor­mal to Nunu and AJ. For them, it was less about the cus­toms, and more about cel­e­brat­ing their love through togeth­er­ness: theirs and with their fam­i­ly.

Blakeny + Corey

Blake and Corey got ready at the Four Sea­sons and brought all their fam­i­ly and friends from all over Cana­da and the states to the hotel. While Blak­e­ny got ready in one suite, we fol­lowed Corey up and across a few rooms as he got ready for their love­ly cer­e­mo­ny at Brick­works. This is one of our favourite films ever and it real­ly comes down to how can­did and in love these two are with each oth­er. Fun fact: we actu­al­ly ran into Drake in the ele­va­tor on our way out of the Four Sea­sons. It was awe­some.
