European Wedding Style

Junilo & Lindsay Ugo reflect on their years in Europe.

Photography duo, Junilo & Lindsay Ugo of Ugo Photography, share the inspiration behind this very personal style shoot.

“For my husband and I, Europe holds special meaning to us as it was our home for eight years. Our photography style and inspiration is often drawn from our experience and years living there. We were incredibly inspired when we visited this private residence in the Niagara region to discover the family’s love of both old and new Europe.

We were honoured to produce an editorial with several other wedding creatives from both the Niagara and Toronto areas. Gina Humilde Events, translated the ideas and inspiration into a fashionable European ‘country home’ affair. She subtly styled rich velvet with both cool winter blues and dusty tones to reflect the time of year. Well thought out details of Mediterranean foods, such as figs, rosemary, cheeses and charcuterie were incorporated into the tablescape.

Both models wore bridal wear which was very reflective of current European trends. We focused on their accessories while keeping the bridal wear simple and elegant. Thought was given to silhouettes and clean lines; reflective of European wedding attire fashion. We trust this editorial will inspire Canadian brides and grooms who share an enthusiasm for a bit of Europe right here at home.”
