It all started at the beach, Lawrence­town to be ex­act. That’s where pho­tog­ra­pher Tanya Canam found in­spi­ra­tion to bring to­gether a windswept wed­ding shoot with one pur­pose—to high­light the hard work of some lo­cal folks work­ing in the scene. With Canam’s lit­tle di­rec­tion—“a free flow­ing, slightly bo­hemian, sea­side vibe which would high­light Nova Sco­tia’s coast­line”—Theresa Capell de­signed a cus­tom look, high­lighted fur­ther with flow­ers, hair and makeup. “Then things changed once I ar­rived at the lo­ca­tion,” says Canam, who last minute moved the shoot to a marshy area across from the beach. “It was ab­so­lutely stun­ning and wild and gor­geous and ex­actly what I was look­ing for even though I didn’t know it. It showed off Nova Sco­tian land­scape mag­nif­i­cently and matched per­fectly the ro­man­tic and wild side of both the dress and the bou­quet.”


“The Miss Fox­ine Col­lec­tion cel­e­brates the ethe­real beauty of vin­tage ro­mance with an en­chanted bo­hemian spirit,” says Theresa Capell, the de­signer of the dress. She makes hand­cut, hand-sewn pieces like this one (the Athenaïs Gown, which was cus­tom made for this shoot) us­ing laces, vin­tage fab­rics, silk flow­ers, crys­tals and other in­tri­cate de­tails. “I of­ten get my queues from the tapestry of our nat­u­ral world. When creat­ing this par­tic­u­lar de­sign, I pulled in­spi­ra­tion from the stun­ning lands that sur­round our ponds, lakes, and shore lines; a story of a del­i­cate flower slowly en­croach­ing deep flir­ta­tious waters.”
