A Romantic Country Wedding

Many of the beautiful lakefront wineries bordering Lake Ontario have become favourite venues
for city brides.This particularily blustery day was witness to such an event, the romantic lakefront wedding of Allison and Phil 

Allison was a very hands on bride, and was also very specific about what she envisioned for her special day, flowers as if hand picked from the garden, in a loose uncontrived way and
an English garden romantic feel to the event.

Her bouquet echoed these sentiments perfectly with astilbe, old fashioned full blown garden roses, that resembled peonies and lisianthus and euphorbia.

A collection of vintage cut glass, and simple Mason jars to hold the arrangements catch the late afternoon sun.

A vintage torchiere was arranged with a loose collection of the same flowers for the outdoor ceremony which was held in the middle of the vineyard.

The bride with the help of her mother provided the hand crochet linens and tiny jars of homemade preserves which were gifted to each one of her guests. Everything was thought of with great care and love.

The attendants soft grey dresses were beautiful against the subdued hues of their


Like a Wuthering Heights scene against the stormy sky of Lake Ontario, this romantic event was perfectly captured as imagined by a discerning bride and groom. It was a pleasure for me to participate.

  3. Jermaine, that loose feathery flower called astilbe is available in pale pink as well,and adds a soft feathery movement to arrangements. I picked that out of my garden for Allison's bouquet. Love that you could connect with this in such a personal way. Nella xox
