Amazing photo location - An Eventective User from Mississauga

Our engagement photo shoot was held at the Berkley Church, and it was stunning. Just unbelievable results in the various backdrops all over the venue. The style is very different from a lot of places I have seen. I love the "peeling paint" look for a backdrop. It works well when complimented with a sophisticated, clean, white wedding dress. There are so many different styles and textures to photograph near. There's stained glass windows, odd shaped bricks, smooth surfaces, chic couches, walls with peeling paint etc. We ended up roaming all over the venue; upstairs, main floor, downstairs. They even have a more modern looking room inside, somewhere in a different part of the venue than the main entrance. We preferred the peeling paint, rustic look of the odd shaped bricks which were found downstairs. There is quite a bit of a pricey fee for the permit to shoot there, but it's well worth the price, and it's pretty in line with other venues across Toronto.
