The University of Toronto has some of the most stunning buildings in the whole city. Each one is rich with beautiful architecture, but Hart House tops them all. Conceived as a place for cultural and intellectual functions, Hart House was established in 1919. It was initiated and financed by Vincent Massey and named in honor of his grandfather, Hart Massey.
The architecture of Hart House is inspired by the Gothic-revival. It was the work of architect Henry Sporatt, decorator Alexander Scott Carter, and engineer Ernest Rolph. The design of the building is simple and calm, but also creates a large impression.
There are many gothic architectural elements in the interior, such as large arched windows and stone carvings. These elements combined create elegant rooms, perfect for a romantic fairytale wedding.
Hart House is one of our Toronto wedding photographers favorite locations to shoot in. The multiple stunning windows provide ample light and frame couples perfectly. The moody heavy architecture contrasts nicely with the happy couple in their soft attire.
Couples cannot go wrong with having a pre-wedding shoot, engagement shoot, or wedding ceremony at Hart House. The simple yet rich architectural elements provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. If you’re looking for a Toronto wedding photography location that is dramatic without being overwhelming, Hart House is the ideal place.
