Description:

Water for elephants is the story of a young man who falls in love with the star performer of a 1920’s travelling circus. Conceived and composed by Elise Gorisse and Laura Dova with Weday’s weddings agency, the idea behind the shooting was to imagine how their wedding would have unfolded and recreate its atmosphere.

Set in times gone by, at Guîtres’ historical train station, Elisabeth Delsol’s decorations are nostalgic and dreamy. Its as if the couple had gathered their personal belongings and had set their table and chairs up by the very same railroad tracks that had accompanied the journey of their lives.

By the candlelight table full of sweets and cakes lovingly prepared by Emilie, the bride is keeping warm with Mariana’s boleros. With (make up artist) Virginie’s sparkles in her eyes and the couples hair beautifully arranged by Nadine, the 1920’s atmosphere is very present in the bride and groom’s appearance.

After dinner, and glass of the finest Bordeaux wine, the newly weds dance to the soft melody of an old record player, the veils on Majorie’s dress floating in rhythm with the music.

Heloise’s accessories in her hair and a suitcase in his hand, the couple set off for their honeymoon to the chime of the station bells. Sandra’s photography and Olivier’s camera have captured the vivid colours of autumn to underline in a romantic way the newlyweds love for each other, interpreted by Piers and Laura

Canada’s Bridal Show Highlight 2

Ok I gave a little teaser earlier this week of Toronto’s Canada Bridal Show, and now we are going to show you some of the other cool things we found there. It’s a 3 day show which is great, that means you can opt to go on Sunday when it’s a little more quiet, or enjoy the hustle bustle of a busier day.

Details from Toronto-based Sharp Fluff Photography:
Rebecca and Zach’s first date was at Williams Coffee Pub – there over cups of coffee the two hit it off right away and 15 months later they were engaged! Coffee dates remain a favourite thing for the Hamilton, Ontario couple, and both of them have a love for the great outdoors. For their engagement session, Cara Mia Events created a vintage styled coffee-date picnic for the couple and put a fresh spin on the couple’s favourite coffee dates! Rebecca loves all things vintage and was amazed by the beautiful setting we had planned out. So on this sunny, beautiful August day, Rebecca and Zach chatted over cupcakes from Flour Girl and fresh whipped cappuccino. What a great way to celebrate their engagement!

Special thanks to Monica Le for creating Monica’s soft romantic hairstyle that she so loved, and MyEpiphany Co for the beautiful accessories.

Rebecca and Zach are getting married in May 2014 in Costa Rica.
