Here's fairytale wedding that bucks the trend of a typical grand palatial celebration with flouncy ballroom gowns and the like. Instead, photographer Rebecca Ou envisioned something more relaxed and rustic for the modern princess and set by the sea.
Her idea was spun from the bride, Vanessa's lacy capped-sleeved wedding dress which incidentally comes from the Disney Weddings bridal collection. It's perhaps fitting that I designed the shoot around Snow White's poisoned apple!" laughed the photographer. Working together with various vendors, this dream sequence of a wedding in a far away land came to life.
"I envisioned the end product to be whimsical and raw yet elegant much like Snow White herself. Naturally, the colour scheme featured red and white strongly. Red, a clear element and representation of the apple, and white symbolising the purity and innocence of the character. The brown elements were decided upon when I visited the location at Iona Beach at Richmond, BC. I felt I had to do the beautiful environment justice and tie in elements of the tablescape to the natural surrounding green and brown tones."
