Many people from a young age dream of vast fairy tale weddings. They imagine a gorgeous princess and prince along with enchanting gardens and massive castles with all the fanfare of a royal wedding. We had a privilege capturing this very same dream come true at the Canadian castle Casa Loma.
Casa Loma is a Edwardian/Gothic Revival masterpiece located just north of the Tarragon Village of Toronto. It was erected in 1914 for Sir Henry Pellatt, but has since become a historical landmark of Canada. The castle is one of only a few North American castles and one of Canada's only castles. What brings tourists to Casa Loma has multiple tourist attractions which include secret underground tunnels, five acres of flourishing gardens, an outdoor terrace, library, and a glass pavilion which offers an interesting atmosphere which couples the traditional aesthetic elements of the castle, and the more modern Toronto skyline.
What we captured in this photo was the romantic embrace of the stunning soon-to-be bride and groom in an embrace on the outdoor terrace. This photo was taken from the garden beneath the terrace which offered a fantastic perspective of the castle walls which served as a weathered, antiquated backdrop to the timeless kiss. Using those elements ultimately gave the photo the fairy tale aesthetic that we were looking for.
