Christine and I we were coming to the end of our winter off-season in Canada when we decided to collaborate on this project. We wanted to create something that felt like it could be in a different country. Some place warmer, with interesting textures, colours and movement. Christine found us the perfect space to do this – Sunnyside Pavilion, a hidden gem on the Toronto waterfront. It had the architecture and character that gave us the feeling of being elsewhere, while maintaining a natural spirit. At the time of our shoot, I had just returned from an inspiring trip to Mexico, with beautiful terracotta vessels and linens that I wanted to incorporate. From there, we sourced each piece to compliment the space and played with bold colours and textures – mixing burnt with cool tones, palms with native Canadian branches. Christine and I are so happy to share it with the Once Wed readers, and hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it!
