Canadian wedding photographer Jessica Zais has created the most swoon-worthy wedding shoot ever, taking inspiration from her favourite book: Anne of Green Gables.
"I’m forever indebted to L.M. Montgomery for her dreaming up Anne. There is something about Anne that makes it impossible not to love her instantly," Jessica writes on her blog.
"She was never afraid to shine her light and be herself completely. I don’t think there has ever been a female character that inspired me as much as Anne."
So Jessica teamed up with some of her favourite vendors to create a wedding fit for Anne Shirley, and her knight in disguise Gilbert Blythe.
Starting with the perfect Green Gables couple: Bailey Woodward as Anne and Yanni Papadopoulos as Gilbert. Bailey's hair was styled in a modern version of Anne's updo by Melissa Dacre and her makeup look was created by Melissa Craven.
The attention to detail is exquisite. There's a White Way of Delight, inspired by the tunnel of blossoms Matthew drives Anne through when they first meet.
"We had so much fun dreaming up all the scenes and details from the Anne of Green Gables series to incorporate. Stage Right Etc did a fantastic job of weaving in those details while still doing their own twist," says Jessica.
There's also the Lake of Shining Waters, complete with a rowboat to recapture Gilbert's rescue of Anne.
And a "tongue in cheek" reference to the infamous raspberry cordial incident.
There was even mini carrot cakes, created by Sweet on You Cakes, plus plenty of books to represent Anne's love of reading - not to mention Anne's must-have puffed sleeves.
Bailey and Yanni, the "Anne and Gilbert" models for this shoot, just got engaged IRL! Congrats, guys!
