THE FINTRY ESTATE, tucked along the west shores of Okanagan Lake in beautiful British Columbia, was a stunning backdrop for this shoot by ESTHER FUNK PHOTOGRAPHY. Styled by BRANDY MADDISON EVENTS who also created the beautiful floral arrangements, the place offers up a 'Tuscan sun' kind of feeling. With so much natural beauty they kept a lot of the elements - such as the table design - very simple.
Esther shares with us, "The bride looked radiant in her ivory dress. The lace top was off her shoulders and had beautiful buttons down the back. The separate skirt was full, simple, and complimented the detailed top perfectly, blending a modern cut with a classic lace bodice. The groom wore an ivory suit, with a subtle pop of colour in his matching belt and shoes. They were picture perfect, stealing small glances and forehead kisses. With the estate's property as the background and the couple's love feeling tangible through film, it was as if you were there in those quiet moments.
Although the colours were not bold nor bright, they were beautiful and elegant. The florals had peonies, which are unique in that they only blossom a few short months of each year. The tiny accents of small pink roses and subdued greenery, when tied together with the heavy notes of cream, was the perfect colour combination. The silk ribbons were subtly dyed in the same palette of creams and pale rose and always add that extra touch of detail to any wedding.
Locations like The Fintry Estate are those hidden gems that photographers, wedding coordinators, and so many couples dream of. To capture a love story in a place so beautiful is truly an incredible experience and this shoot was no exception."
