In the heart of Toronto stands a testament to love and grandeur, Casa Loma, a Gothic Revival castle that set the stage for a wedding that was as magical as the venue itself. This is the tale of Orest and Lindsay, whose love story became the first chapter in our journey as wedding cinematographers. On May 27, 2017, not only did we celebrate their love, but we also marked the birth of Gauche Weddings, a company born out of passion and a deep calling to capture the essence of love through our lenses.

The Venue: A Gothic Fairytale

Casa Loma, a magnificent castle-style mansion, served as the backdrop for Orest and Lindsay's special day. Constructed from 1911 to 1914 for financier Sir Henry Pellatt and designed by architect E.J. Lennox, this historic house museum is a landmark of Toronto's architectural beauty and romantic mystique. Its grand halls and splendid gardens echoed the love shared between Orest and Lindsay, making it a fitting venue for a day filled with elegance and joy.

The Calling: From Filmmakers to Wedding Cinematographers

The request from close friends to document their wedding was a moment of realization for us. Utilizing our expertise and experience in filmmaking, we embarked on a new journey, not just as videographers, but as creators of timeless memories. Orest and Lindsay's wedding was not just an assignment; it was the moment Gauche Weddings was officially launched. This day wasn't only about the beginning of their lives together but also about our own story, finding our true calling in life. Through the camera lens, we witnessed their love story unfold—a privilege that has since become our passion.

Casa Loma's enchanting ambiance added to the magic, with each shot framing their love against the backdrop of Toronto's most romantic mansion. It was a high we've chased in every wedding we've shot since, always striving to encapsulate the essence of each couple's unique love story.
