Wedding Photographer | The Estates of Sunnybrook | Toronto’s Wedding Venue

As a wedding photographer, I have the pleasure of working at many different venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Engaged couples have the expressed ability to choose what type of venue suits their personal taste, as well as their budget. For my clients who are looking for a unique venue that is full of character and grandeur, I often suggest The Estates of Sunnybrook on Bayview Ave. in Toronto.

The Estates of Sunnybrook is one-stop shopping as far as location is considered. From the ceremony to the wedding photographs, to the end of night party, the Estates of Sunnybrook is a gorgeous backdrop for you and your loved ones to celebrate your commitment. With your choice of three beautiful, historic buildings nestled within 40 acres of tree-filled land, you have the ability to make your reception and ceremony unique. The estate can accommodate wedding parties from 6 to 200 people or more. Your choice to celebrate in The Vaughan Estate, The Coach House or McLean House will depend on how many guests you have and what type of wedding party you plan. All three houses have their own cozy feel to them. From the exquisite gardens at the McLean House to the large outdoor terrace at The Vaughan Estate, there really is something for every one and every party!

The grounds at Estates of Sunnybrook are absolutely gorgeous and it’s always a pleasure for me to photograph weddings there. The numerous gardens create nooks and crannies within the grounds to take photos of the bride and groom and their various attendants and loved ones. The trees and greenery create a backdrop that accentuates my subjects. Buildings that are historically intact, like the ones at this estate, provide interesting backgrounds and textures for my images. Between the buildings, the sunlight-filled indoors and the landscaping, Sunnybrook is a dream location to photograph at.

Giving Back

The very essence of Estates of Sunnybrook is charity and donation, giving back to the community. At one point the estate was purchased by the University of Toronto and Sunnybrook Hospital turned it into a clinical facility. In 1982 the estate was renovated and used as a location for events such as conferences and weddings. Part of the proceeds from every event held at Sunnybrook is donated back to the hospital and used toward scientific research. The ideals of donation and charity are well ingrained into the culture of the estate and one generous couple even encouraged their guests to bring donations to the hospital in lieu of wedding gifts!
