A soft classic boudoir session is perfect inspiration today's bride and makes a beautiful gift for your partner on the wedding morning. It's the neutral colours and bright images photographed on film that gives this session such a timeless feel.
From the Bride: 'In planning our wedding, I had a simple vision in mind - that it would be elegant and classic. In particular, I loved the idea of having a vintage wedding. Growing up in Niagara, I knew I wanted to be married in the heart of vineyard country in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake. The venue was simple to determine and the Pillar and Post posed the perfect backdrop for a spring garden wedding, while the vintage touches sprang to life with the red interior bricking. The details seemed to fall in place after this. My dress would be lace, with a long train, paired with a cathedral veil to complete the classic bridal look. The flowers were kept in soft shades of ivory and blush, with accented greens showcasing the boutineires and my hair piece. Everything came together in perfect harmony as we exchanged our vows under the shade of the magnolia tree in the Pillar & Post Rose Garden. The simple beauty of the area provided us just the right setting for our photos. The sun, trees, and serenity of Butler's Barracks proved to be the only location necessary to capture all our memories for the day.'

We've had some really beautiful and dramatic sunsets this season. But they don't come close to the beautiful sky captured at this engagement session with Ally & Nicholas Photography.
From the photographers: 'This couple has such a special bond and the sky was something we haven't seen before. We planned to capture Alicia + James' love in NOTL because of the romantic scenery. It was the perfect setting to capture their natural beauty and connection. A big storm started all around us but didn't hit Niagara-On-The-Lake. We could see the storm happening from across the lake in Toronto & the GTA and it created the most beautiful sky. The sun was bursting through the clouds. James very sadly lost both of his parents, and we truly believe that the sunset and gorgeous sky was from his parents. Both of them were emotional near the end of the session, feeling a sense of comfort from his parents, and we captured them staring out at the scene. It was a very touching and emotional moment. To see the comfort and joy it brought the two of them during this session is a moment we will never forget. And for it to take place in our home of NOTL is just the cherry on top.' - Ally & Nicholas Photography
If you'd like to chat about your wedding with Ally & Nicholas, they will be at the First Look Wedding Show on November 12, 2017 at Hare Winery.
'I think that's the most beautiful thing about choosing to marry in Niagara: there is a talented vendor to suit almost every style, need, service and budget, which makes the process more streamlined and efficient. Two words that are music to a planner's ears.' - Amanda CowleyRead More

Welcome to Vineyard Estates-so charming with it's laneways through the vineyards and the beautiful gardens. Guests will watch the sunset over the vineyards from the coach house. Sounds so dreamy! Scroll down to view some inspiration! If you're planning a small intimate celebration you'll find inspiration here!
From the couple: 'As soon as we pulled up to visit we knew instantly we had found the spot - it's so picturesque! We wanted something that would be a little unusual for our British friends and families to experience, and a Niagara vineyard definitely fit that bill. It was the first and only venue we looked at in person. It was perfect for our small group.
The size of the Carriage House perfectly complimented our group size. Not only that but we loved the grounds and knew the food was excellent. It was a big bonus being able to rent the on-site cottages and get ready there without having to worry about transport to the venue before or after.'
