Two grooms on bikes on their wedding day

Jacob and Michael’s The Henley Room wedding day begun with some low key, relaxed getting ready. I love that they chose to get ready together. Having a cup of coffee, doting over Libby, their sweet kitty, and helping each other prep for their day. Their Kensington market wedding photos reflected the neighbourhood they call home, and made for an awesome backdrop.

Love has a beautiful way of bringing people together, and for Jacob and Michael, it was their shared passion for the water and rowing that initially connected them. Fast forward to a sunny summer day, and The Henley Room became the backdrop for a celebration of their love that will be remembered for a lifetime.

They first crossed paths at TMU (formerly Ryerson University), and found themselves bound by a common love for the sport of rowing. Little did they know that their shared interest would evolve into a deep and lasting connection. Their love story led them to The Henley Room, a venue that perfectly complemented their vision for a minimal aesthetic, modern but incredibly fun celebration with the waterfront as their backdrop.

The setting was nothing short of perfection – with the tranquil waters as their witness, Jacob and Michael chose to renew their vows in the company of their favourite people. The ceremony, both heartwarming and filled with emotion, was beautifully officiated by Andy from All Love Weddings. Laughter and tears intertwined as the grooms declared their commitment to each other once again.

After the heartfelt ceremony, we took some time for photos by the water, capturing their just-re-vowed bliss against the scenic backdrop. Meanwhile, their guests enjoyed the bar and the breathtaking views, setting the stage for a memorable evening ahead.

The reception at The Henley Room was a seamless blend of fun and emotion. Surrounded by great company, the air was filled with beautiful words and an amazing atmosphere that reflected the couple’s love. However, the real surprise awaited the guests, as Jacob and Michael had a showstopping moment planned – a surprise drag show to elevate the celebration to new heights.

The performers were a perfect segue to the party, with their beauty, high energy, and captivating performances, igniting the dance floor and turning the celebration into an unforgettable night. The unexpected twist added a touch of glamour and entertainment that perfectly reflected Jacob and Michael’s vibrant personalities.

Jacob and Michael’s wedding was not just a union of two people but a celebration of love, friendship, and the freedom to be true to oneself. Their love story, set against the backdrop of The Henley Room, is a testament to the beauty of embracing love in all its forms and letting it flourish in the most unexpected places.

As the sun set on that summer day, Jacob and Michael’s wedding at The Henley Room became a cherished memory for all who attended – a celebration of love that transcended boundaries and created a space where laughter, tears, and joy [and an awesome party] coexisted harmoniously.
