Located in the heart of downtown Toronto the 5-star luxury hotel and spa called the Shangri-La Hotel provides a very unique feeling for the best weddings in Toronto. It has a number of unique features throughout the hotel which will add to look and feel of your photography.
The champagne wall, which was built for the 2nd anniversary of the hotel is a very interesting featuring including a ladder with which to pose the bride and groom that you won't be able to get anywhere else in the city.
One of the most sought after features is the moon gates located in the Shangri-la suite. This asian inspired room with it's artwork and architectural details are the perfect place to get into your wedding gown after the bartering for the bride and the door games. The light coming in to the room is perfect and the backdrops and themes of asian art are an excellent addition to your pictures.
The Owner's suite is 1100 sq. ft. of pure bliss and the best room to get ready in anywhere in the downtown core. This luxurious room offers a wonderful option for brides with large bridal parties and lots of girls getting their hair and makeup done at the same time. Space isn't a hinderance in this beautiful space.
The 17th floor is a balcony overlooking the city with glass railings giving it a wonderful feel for outdoor pictures on a nice day. It is also a great place to host your tea party for your family and friends. This spacious room is large and offers lots of opportunities for your wedding photos both with the bride and groom, the bridal party, the bridesmaids and groomsmen and even the family photos can take place in this room.
One of the key features in the venue are the 13 Italian crystal chandeliers decorating the space. When paired with beautiful decor this room transforms into a luxury space designed to wow your guests from the time they arrive to the time the first dance, and the party has begun. Under candlelight this space feels like you are inside crystal. It is stunning.
We love being wedding photographers at the Shangri-la hotel and would love to use all of these different spaces to create for you amazing wedding memories.
