Cocktail Wedding Receptions


I’ve been photographing weddings for (eek!!) over 12 years and of the many trends I’ve seen, one idea that I believe has real staying power is that of the cocktail party wedding reception.

For modern couples who want to break from the tradition of getting married earlier in the day and having a (some would say “inconvenient”) 3 or 4 hour break before the reception starts, it can be a great way to keep the flow of the day (and your party!) going.  Not only can you accommodate more guests if your venue has limited seating capacities (people take up less room standing up than they do sitting down), you also won’t have to worry about your out-of-town guests entertaining themselves at the local Tim’s all afternoon dressed in their finest evening wear.

The Wedding Co. (my local and favourite source for finding all those uber-talented wedding vendors in Toronto) wrote a blog post about cocktail-style wedding receptions, along with photos from Lindsay & Andrew’s cocktail-style wedding I shot at the Thompson Landry Gallery.  (Which, by the way, was a bangin’ party thanks to Husbo aka Greg of enjoi dj outfit.)

If a wedding cocktail party something you’re considering for your own wedding, head on over to The Wedding Co.’s blog to learn more.
