A styled shoot at Victoria's Hatley Castle becomes a rich, luxurious labour of love

"This styled shoot was a dream to create and a labour of love. The vision was inspired by the beautiful West Coast backdrop of Hatley Castle in Victoria, B.C. which has been a welcoming location to help tell the love stories of so many beautiful couples. With the perfect venue for this glamorous fall-inspired wedding, the wedding shoot was highlighted by rich hues in the floral and table-setting, as well as classic looks provided by The Bay and Shades of White Bridal and worn by the couple."


"The bride wore a beautiful gown by Sottero & Midgley for the ceremony portion of the day. Fit for a beautiful queen, the dress provided the perfect fairytale look, with a beautiful bodice and a sexy low back. When it came to the evening portion of the day, the bride changed into a stunning dress by Mori Lee which complimented her feminine beauty. The groom wore a Sondergaard tuxedo with a burgundy velvet jacket that added to the richness of the entire vision, and filled the love story with passion."


"This styled shoot was fashioned by creative minds who envisioned such magic long before it came to life. Working with a collective group of vendors from Victoria and Vancouver, we created a magic that burned brightly in every single image captured by Rivkah Photography."
