CHIC VINTAGE BRIDES EDITORIAL FEATURE | Love Letters from Willowbank

willowbank 0313The inspiration for this moody shoot comes from the beautiful historic Greek Revival mansion of Willowbanks. Situated on a picturesque lawn hillside overlooking the village of Queenston, Ontario. The mansion is an elegant example of the rural estates of 19th century wealthy settlers in Upper Canada, and is named after the grand willow trees that once graced it elegant grounds.willowbank 0082

As it was common practice, many marriages during this time were well planned for a most perfect match. Young women were groomed by their Mothers to become a dutiful wife and mother. Many of these matches also came with a generous dowry and encouraged social stability for these young women. The Marriage of two individuals was often more valued for the financial and social prosperity it could afford.willowbank 0209

In keeping with spirit of this period, our bride and groom’s marriage has been carefully arranged by their parents, distant cousins with an ocean between the families. After many months of a long distance courtship, our bride & groom have exchanged letters that quickly became notes of devotion and love. Our bride has spent many weeks traveling to wed the Willowbanks heir and begin a new life in new her new country home. Our groom knows that this suitable match is favorable and that her generous dowry will allow him to continue the restoration of his historic family estate and that he can provide a comfortable and loving life for his new wife.willowbank 0070 willowbank 0089 willowbank 0065

Seeing her for the first time on their wedding day, he admires her from afar, just as he has through their letters.
