Remember Tiprene & Drew’s engagement shoot I photographed in the previous post where I was gushing about how fun and creative they are and how everyday was like dress-up for them?  Well I just had the most perfect day  EVER  photographing their Victorian themed wedding on October 5th! 🖤❤️ Their wedding was designed by the talented Alexandria from Past Pieces! They really kept the theme SOOOOO well executed from the bride wearing 2 gorgeous Victorian gowns that fit her like a like a glove, one for the ceremony a  white strapless gown with a shinny belt, and a wool stole she was wearing, and then one for the reception. I personally like the reception gown it was just more fun to play with and had a giant puff on the back and the shoulders and the front had delicate lace detailing and a V shape at the bottom.  The groom had a top hat and black velvet suit, and his black and gold Elvis shoes on from the engagement shoot. All the guests were wearing Victorian outfits as well, it looked like we stumbled onto a movie set!

 

For their ceremony they had candles everywhere, and an arbor at the end of the aisle decorated in dark flowers. For the signing table they had a bright red chair, a bunch of framed photos of the two of them, flowers and  candles on the floor, an old victorian feather pen, and an antique marriage licence. Their ornate gold guestbook was made after a similar one the Royal Family used. Tiprene & Drew has 3 kids in total. For the ceremony their oldest son walked beaming Tiprene down the aisle, while Drew was waiting for her at the end pf the aisle-grinning happily.   Their daughter was part of the Tiprene’s wedding party and stood art the end of the aisle watching her parents tie the knot. She had a white dress and velvet glows on. Their middle son was part of Drew’s wedding party and stood with him at the aisle, just like their daughter and watched the ceremony.  The two boys wore black suits with velvet bowties. It was a lovely ceremony with a lot of laughter and tears of course, to see these two finally tie the knot – it is a beautiful thing to witness. ❤️ ❤️

 

For the couple and wedding party photos we drove to Belcarra Park and it was a gorgeous fall day and sunny as well so it made the autumn colours of the yellow and red maple trees light up like heaven on earth! One of my favourite photos was of the wedding party all standing on each step of the stairway, all faced in the same direction! I really love a lot of the couple photos I did of them walking away with his top hat on, and her wool stole and victorian hairdo, with the jewel inside her hair.  I also really love the  bridesmaid photo I took under that yellow tree. They were all wearing different coloured dresses, but they all go together so well, and her daughter smiling happily beside her mom with her white dress and brown gloves and matching belt.  The bouquets were all fall goth colours which I adore.

 

During the reception there was all these candles everywhere along the mantle and walls were covered with old candelabra lights.  Darkness-  they had to be true to the theme. The tables all had old books on them, and flowers, and old soap they had to import it from Colonial Wlliamsburg, as they didn’t have soap back then. The table also had navy plates with gold around the edges, the guests name was on a serviette with pink flowers details on it, with a dark purple flower on top of the serviette. All the guests had a different colour crystal wine glass that was clear on the bottom and purple on top. The flowers were a lot of dark, goth colours.  Even the cake table was so well done and had white cupcakes with blueberries on top of this old world steel tier. The reception was a lot of fun as well and had a ton of dancing, Drew and his mother shared a first dance and then the newlyweds shared their first dance they had candlelight, and had all the candles lined up along the mantle of the fireplace, so it was super romantic! 🖤🌹
