VICTORIAN WEDDING INSPIRATION FOR A MODERN BRIDE
Who says a Victorian wedding can’t be modernized? We are swooning over this creative! The Berry tones mixed blissfully with gold for this Victorian wedding inspiration shoot captured by Madison Rose Photography at Ball’s Falls, Niagara. Caught between fall and winter, the outdoor scene features lush burgundy florals, a rustic table for two, as well as wooden signage and a vibrant red settee. To push the Victorian era, the redheaded bride wears a delicate gown by Karen Willis Holmes from Sash & Bustle.
Willow Springs Winery; Destination Wedding Inspiration
Finding the words to describe our excitement over today’s wedding inspiration feature is a challenge! “Perfect” may just sum up every last detail in this wedding design by wedding planner, Rainbow Chan Weddings, and photographed by Therese, owner of Artiese Studios in Ontario, Canada. This wedding planning team chose Willow Springs Winery in Ontario, Canada to host their bridal collaboration. The bright, natural light on the grounds paid compliment to various setups; including a wedding ceremony site that boasted a floral design arch by Mums Garden, a wedding reception table doused in details such as menus by So Pretty In Print and napkins wrapped in hand-dyed silk by Silk and Willow. There is even a dessert table covered in all types of edible decor crafted by Sweet Regards by Daniela. And let’s not forget the added touch of a bridal swing covered in a floral palette that is sure to make a bride feel like the princess she is on her wedding day. Tie in a soft up-do and natural makeup by Fancy Face and not one but two wedding dresses from Sash and Bustle, this bridal inspiration is a wedding dream come true.
Moon Light Inspiration
“There was a full moon that day, and it was a welcome addition to the photos! The style of this shoot incorporates traditional opulent elegance mingled with clean geometric lines and shapes. Elegant, but not ‘too much’. Modern, but still soft. A harmonious balance between the two usually quite opposite styles.
The floral arrangements are relaxed and organic, which juxtaposes nicely with the ornate antique details in the tablescape. We also think it’s important to not upstage the beauty of the venue too much – important to find a good complimentary balance.
We hope this shoot inspires the romantic, traditionally-inclined yet relaxed couple!
A SEA OF LOVE: COOL, BLUE WEDDING INSPIRATION
Inspired by its beachfront locale, this Toronto styled shoot incorporated water-hued blues into every element as far as the eye could see. With the goal of inspiring swells of emotion, this shoot was soft and beautifully romantic, including as few details as possible as to not distract from the emanating passion.
Modern Day Factory Girl on The Wedding Co
“Our main objective was to create a timeless yet unique, elegant aesthetic with thoughtfully placed pops of industrial accents to bring vivacity throughout the space. The juxtaposition between the airiness of minimalism with the weight of the industrial elements created a striking balance of delightfulness and charm.”
“To play up the minimalist motif we selected a stunning plain white dress with a timeless silhouette that any fashion blogger would adore. The open-back and train add dashes of drama and modernity without the use of ornate embellishments. The jewelry was kept to delicate pearls to contrast against the structured neckline of the gown. We also styled the dress with a translucent white sash to add some softness as an alternative.”
Kailey & Michael at the Kortright
“Kailey and Michael are one the kindest most easy going couples i’ve had the pleasure of working with. These high school sweethearts started dating when they were just 14 years old and were even voted couple most likely to wed.”
“Their beautiful forest wedding was simple and easy going but filled with diy details and personal touches throughout, such as a Dr Seuss reading of “Oh the places you’ll go”. Their entire wedding took place outdoors, followed by dancing under bistro lights and featuring a bonfire with s’mores for dessert.”
Fashion Magazine: Stylish Canadian Weddings
“Inside of seven months, the two whipped up an August affair at the groom’s family home in Whistler B.C.”
“Choosing the perfect dress was definitely a challenge therefore it only felt right to select two. I wanted an elevated classic look for the ceremony and then a fun party gown for the reception. Kate chose an Oscar del la Renta from Kleinfelds in Toronto for the ceremony and a Theia gown for the reception [from] Sash and Bustle.”
Junebug weddings feature by Olive Photography
“Between the terrariums, metallic finishes, and industrial vibes we’ve noticed trending in wedding décor lately, we couldn’t help but notice one thing they all had in common: gorgeous geometric shapes! Shot in an Ontario apple orchard, this candlelit elopement shoot by Olive Photography captures the ultimate geometric wedding inspiration.”
“Gold accents and organic florals are perfectly natural juxtapositions for this elopement inspiration shoot’s terrariums, wooden ceremony arch, and geometric desserts!”
Inspired by Natures Beauty
“This bridal shoot was created by a team of talent Toronto wedding vendors to capture a natural, barefoot, and wild-foraged bridal look for the spring, summer, and fall.”
“We chose to shoot at the Scarborough Bluffs to provide inspiration for brides getting married in Toronto, who have fallen in love with that glow-y California Coast Style of wedding photography, or who simply want some photographs in nature to compliment their urban wedding gallery.”
The Wedding Night featured on the Wedding Co
“As your wedding winds down, the last song is played, and your guests start to gather themselves to leave, the excitement builds for the both of you knowing your night is not over just yet.”
“As you unwrap the layers of the day, the most vulnerable you is revealed. There is a soft touch, a sweet gesture, a knowing smile. And then the most anticipated moment of the day arrives, just before your lips meet, and you kiss.”
Katie Nicole Style Me Pretty Feature - Blush by Hayley Paige Adair
“Dear, Katie Nicolle Photography and Sue Gallo Designs, we’re declaring our love for this soft, romantic and ethereal inspiration shoot. With loose spring florals, lovely beauty from Tahnee Marie and Honor Beauty, mesmerizing lettering from Corsivo Calligraphy and a dreamy gown from Sash & Bustle, this editorial at Willowbank has us completely smitten.”
“Madison is resplendent in a gorgeous gown by Sash & Bustle.”
Wedding Bells feature: A Modern Renaissance-Inspired Wedding Shoot
“With this styled shoot, photographer Therese de Jesus and her team aimed to create a modern wedding setup inspired by Renaissance paintings.”
“Olive branches, low, lush florals, gold tableware and gorgeous ornate desserts came together to reflect a Renaissance look, while fine art calligraphy on watercolour paper, a stunning chiffon gown and romantic accessories added a modern aesthetic to the shoot.”

Vanessa & Dillon at Oakview terrace
“My Husband and I shared a wonderful moment together before the ceremony when we first saw each other on our wedding day. Sharing our first look together was such an emotional special moment for us and will never be forgotten.”
“There was an overwhelming amount of emotions that took over the moment I walked into the wedding chapel with my mom and dad. Love seemed to be emanating from everyone in the room and for all that love to be there for me was just the best feeling, something I have never felt before and didn’t know to expect.”
Julia Park Langdon Hall Shoot - featuring Alexandra Grecco and Theia
“It may be springtime but visions of sugar plum princesses are dancing through my head this morning thanks to this beautiful inspiration session from Julia Park Photography And Cinema. With pretty gowns you can dance in, handwritten love notes from Plume Calligraphy and lovely florals, this editorial is straight out of a dream.”
“We drew our inspiration from the historical Langdon Hall itself. It’s a beautiful Victorian Era Summer residence converted into a Country House Hotel and Spa. It’s such a unique place where old and new come together.”
Interview with Kayla Yestal for Wedding Vendor Wednesday
“A peek inside the storefront of one of the most popular dress shops in Toronto.”
“I first met Andrea and Vanessa (sisters and co-owners) back in September when they were in the process of moving their boutique to a brand new location on the always hustling Queen Street East in Toronto. From the second we met, they immediately blew me away by their clear passion for their work and massive smiles!”
Weddingbells Bailey Duller Real wedding wearing Truvelle Rochelle
“Bailey and Nick knew without a doubt that they wanted to incorporate camping into their wedding as it played a major role in their relationship.”
“It was only fitting that the couple opted for a “glamping” theme, using natural elements like birch and pinecones with glamorous touches like glitter and gold paint. Antler accents and the Parks Canada logo added rustic touches to their elegant-yet-outdoorsy venue.”
A Wedding a Top the City
“Catherine and Alex’s wedding took place at Canoe Restaurant on the 54th floor of Toronto’s TD Bank Tower, above the city’s tallest skyscrapers, with a sunset view that is out of this world.”
“This wedding also included some special personal touches including custom illustrated invitations (including their pug Frank, who also joined us that day!), ‘party animal’ figurine place cards, a cake topper that Catherine’s grandparents used for their wedding, and candles Alex lit just before dinner to honour his parents who are with us in spirit.”
Ethereal Old World Elegance
“The inspiration was Scandinavian Winter—which they nailed— but we definitely think the relaxed elegance of the florals by SWEET WOODRUFF and stationery by POST & PLUME would translate beautifully to an outdoor, organic spring celebration too.”
“Brides can easily incorporate some of the Old World charm and organic elements into their own wedding by adding some blue & grey shades, beautiful tapered grey candles in vintage brass holders and loose bouquets.”
Simple and Modern Wedding Styling Ideas
“Featuring some of Toronto’s finest wedding vendors this shoot was born out of a love for delicate details – speckled stone, washed linen and rich textures, to name a few. Coveting moments of quiet, moody and understated beauty the team wanted to inspire brides with fresh ideas of a darker palette consisting of stone servingware, a sesame cake and walnut inked wedding stationery.”
“Gorgeous florals by JESSICA HUNTER include a simple yet effective wall installation that would make a perfect ceremony backdrop if you have a blank space to decorate and modern gowns from TRUVELLE and SAJA show that stylish can still be super comfortable!”
