A Village Wedding
The Pioneer Village, located just west of York University and south-west of the Jane and Steeles intersection, is a series of over forty 19th century buildings, all restored and decorated in the 1860 style. On a very cold and sunny February day, Kim and Sean tied their knot in the old Fisherville Church.
As we braved the crunchy snow of the coldest day in February, we explored some of the historical houses such as the Dalziel barn, the general store, the blacksmith shop and the one-room school house.
Walking around the Village and photographing the bridal party was challenging. In that weather (-10 below) I could not ask my subjects to stay out more than a few minutes, but they braved the freezing temperature with lots of determination. I think the “pioneer spirit” was still in the air.
The ceremony at The Fisherville Church was simple and intimate. Martin Frith, the Humanist Officiant from Ceremonies with Choice, provided the couple with a personalized and memorable ceremony, including some very fun moments…
After the ceremony we moved back outside to catch the last few minutes of light and get some more shots
