Dundurn Castle Wedding Photos
These Dundurn Castle wedding photos are a few images from the Jane Austen inspiration shoot I did a few weeks ago. I love working with incredibly talented vendors to create something so beautiful. I will be able to share more later. Flowers by Bloom & Co. – hair & makeup by Glow Beauty – Styling and design by Vivian Lyttle Events – dress by Maureen Patricia Bridal – more details and vendors to follow. I suggest you check out all these amazing local vendors yourself, most of them are from the Hamilton/Niagara Region.
Dundurn Castle is a perfect spot for wedding photos, it has a magnificent lawn and row of trees that face the lake. The castle itself has beautiful architecture, I have shot here a few times and there are different elements to the property which work well for various wedding styles. The last time I was here was for an Art Gallery of Hamilton wedding, which was beautiful, another fav venue.
We shot this shoot in the spring, it was barely warm enough but the bright green grass and bouquet were so vibrant. I love the use of greenery at weddings, garland table runners and other foliage. I love flowers too, but there is something so fresh and pleasing about pure uncomplicated greenery.
I definitely wish we had more of these castles and beautiful estates in Canada, I’m jealous of wedding photographers in Europe, surrounded by centuries old buildings everywhere you turn. I guess anything gets old in time and maybe everyone wants what they don’t have. That or they are thinking, no we definitely have the best scenery.
I haven’t shot an entire wedding at Dundurn Castle before, just portrait sessions, but I would like to one day. I have seen some amazing ceremonies in the row of trees and it looks pretty magical. If you’re getting married at Dundurn Castle, maybe we can work together. I love travelling out to Hamilton/Niagara.
