ROMANCING THE GOLDEN AGE – Set along the shores of Lake Ontario with Paletta Mansion nestled in the background, this Edwardian inspired bridal shoot is equal parts dramatic and moody. A Canadian Downton Abbey, creatively led, styled and photographed by Lisa of Lisa Vigliotta Photography .
“The inspiration began when I happened upon the wedding gown in popular thrift store Value Village for $30. Originally made in the 1970’s to look like the 1920’s Edwardian high-neck lace wedding gown it has all the right elements of being so old it’s hip again; on point for the 2020 lace bridal trend. In our modern climate of reduce, reuse, recycle, this shoot is such a good example of pulling a gorgeous look together on a shoe-string budget.
Hilary of Hilary Adele Florals fell in love with it as well and became both model and florist for our shoot. The moment she put the gown on it looked like it had been made for her and I could envision no one else wearing it; her red hair and freckles gave an oh so Canadian Ann of Green Gables vibe and suited the mood of the Edwardian era perfectly.
With Hilary’s inherited Onyx gold rings from her grandmother and two gorgeous over-flowing Smoke Bush and Russian Olive bouquets, we and the bystanders passing by were swooning over our shoot. Add in some passing Canadian Geese and a vintage lantern and you have editorial bridal inspiration magic!”
