Call for Submissions – The Love (Actually) Exhibition

The Love (Actually) Exhibition
Jan 30th until Feb 25th, 2018 at the Gladstone Hotel

The Love (Actually) Exhibition is a group photo-show showcasing the power of love & happiness in real moments during weddings. It’s returning for it’s second time and will be an annual show at the Gladstone Hotel. Curated by Toronto photographer Scarlet O’Neill, the diverse images of a variety of Toronto Wedding Photographers will be accompanied by a description of what made this moment meaningful along with a list of the wedding vendors who contributed to making the couples day special. This show shows a deeper view into the wedding world and the vast emotions that make weddings memorable days in people’s lives.

This year the show will pay special focus to specific points of a wedding day to show the entirety of the day.
