With Dundurn Castle as the backdrop to this stunning bridal photo shoot, we can’t help but feel like we’ve been transported into a fairytale. Dreamy details nicely complement the modern twist, as the bride, in her stunning empire wedding dress, awaits her beloved for the start of their own happily ever after. 

Looking for some inspiration to adopt for your own fairytale, then keep on scrolling.


From Vivian Lyttle of Vivian Lyttle Events:

"Our team was inspired by the beauty of simplicity. Using cool tones of white, grey and black, with touches of green and marble - we tell the story of a serene morning for our bride. Dressed in the most delicate silk robe, she reads a letter from her beloved, while admiring the beauty of her flowers. When she gets dressed - her gown, ethereal and flowing, is accented by her black birdcage veil. Ikebana-inspired, the floral centrepiece brings the slightest warmth to the cool, modern tablescape. The soft grey and white linens pick up the architecture of Dundurn Castle, the perfect romantic setting for a gorgeous wedding day. Vineyard Bride readers will be inspired by the simplicity of this editorial and how understated details can shine on their own wedding day."
