A castle venue
From Rainbow Chan Weddings and Events: To truly capture the essence of classiness in our styled shoot, our stylists and co-ordinators had chosen the immaculate and historic Dundurn Castle on York Boulevard in Hamilton. A breathtaking 18,000 square-foot castle built in the 1830s, the estate of Dundurn Castle has been designated as a National Historic Site of Canada, a prestigious title rightly earned through its gorgeous neoclassical design, its historic status and its undeniable classical charm.
Choosing the perfect color palette
To complement the classiness of our venue, our stylists and coordinators had crafted an impressive colour palette and aesthetic theme to match the immensity of the neoclassical environment; a breathtaking array of the deepest black to the softest white, accented by choice selections of glittering gold and cool copper bronze. For the dresses, our stylists had chosen a prim and proper pair of gowns and suits care-of Sash and Bustle and The Theodore 1922 respectively. The wedding gown, clean and shimmering white in all its simplicity, would be the perfect pair to match a thoroughly trimmed and tailored suit and bow-tie, a novel and ‘classy’ choice to contrast with the classical atmosphere of the shoot.
a world of style
We had also chosen to showcase a variety of centerpieces and accessories which perfectly complements a ‘classy’ wedding theme. From an impeccable pair of jet black stilettos, to a finely prepared wedding cake care-of Flour and Flower Cake Design, to a magnificently gorgeous wedding ring by Cynthia Findlay; all of which perfectly encapsulate our chosen colour palette of the playful contrast between black and white, and accents of gold and silver strewn about. So come with us, venture into a world of style, vibrancy and beauty, and be enchanted by our “Classy” styled shoot; a perfect menagerie of elegance, classiness, playfulness and simplicity.
