Each page is the result of putting one fabulous photographer (HRM Photography), some extravagant, gorgeous florals (Village Vines Floral & Event Design) one sought-after wedding coordinator (Blissful Weddings), and a number of top named London and Southwestern Ontario area wedding experts together in the same venue, on the same day, with the goal of igniting brides and grooms with fresh fashion and design inspiration.

Throughout this palette, you can see fashion evolve from earlier styles (circa 1914 – longer gowns, cathedral veils and up-do’s) to post-World War One styles (around 1920, when women began to wear their hair down, wore shorter dresses and even began to show some skin! gasp!)

The team incorporated authentic antique accessories, combining them with current trends for an truly exquisite look.
