There is no doubt: Belle has always been one of the most admired Disney Princesses. Her smarts, independence, and beauty make her an exceptional role model for little ladies (and young men!) everywhere. We're beyond excited for the release of the live action movie today and what better what to celebrate? A Beauty and the Beast themed shoot! Of course we were instantly drawn to the use of the symbolic rose, the elaborate princess jewels, and Belle's two beautiful gowns by Alfred Angelo and Fabulous Frocks. Photographer Tim Souza dreamed up this elaborate wedding inspiration for the couple who dreams of a fairytale wedding in a stately place like Dover Hall Estate.
Another detail that we loved was the canary yellow diamond ring from Quinns Goldsmith Inc.. Belle rocks that quintessential yellow gown in the most famous ballroom scene in the movie, so this nod to the famous yellow tone was perfect. For a classic couple with an elegant ballroom wedding, you're going to love everything here.
From the photographer, Tim Souza: "With the live action retelling of one of the most beloved Disney stories coming out in March we thought it fitting to honor the movie with this styled shoot.The tudor style Dover Hall Estates was a stunning setting. The two story ballroom was inspired and patterned after the ballroom in the movie.We went with the current trend of having two wedding gowns. A ceremony gown and a reception gown. The first was from the Alfred Angelo Disney fairytale collection. This elegant Disney bridal dress pays tribute to Belle's warm and gracious spirit. The reception gown was provided by Fabulous Frocks of Alexandria. It gave a classic, time-honored look. A truly elegant ball gown. The princess jewels were from Quinns Goldsmith. Throw in a canary yellow diamond ring and a 23 carat necklace and you have one happy Belle!"
