We are absolutely gushing over the photos from our most recent shoot at Dundurn Castle in downtown Hamilton! Big thanks to the lovely Ariana Del Mundo Photography for reaching out and including us in this amazing collaboration with these very talented lady bosses!
Ariana was such a blast to work with and she had our beautiful couple laughing and enjoying every moment of this shoot. She is fantastic at capturing those super sweet candid moments and has such an eye for detail. And we really loved how Meghan wanted to showcase her natural beauty with soft and light colours for her makeup with effortless waves with a romantic messy braids for her hair.
We were also incredibly happy to work alongside all the other totally talented and unique vendors on this shoot. Jessica of @jheventartistry showcased her expertise in event design and florals, Ashley of @tayneandashley created the beautiful calligraphy and design details and Laura of @gofluffyourselfdesigns introduced us to her super cute pillows! Together we turned downtown Hamilton’s Dundurn Castle into a parisian style fairy tale for our lovely couple Meghan and Nathan! Such a fun day with these absolute gems.
Big shout out to our incredible hair guru Robyn for blowing us away again with her talent, check her out @hairbyrobynrees! We are so happy to have her a part of the Save The Date Beauty Hamilton team!

Since our recent expansion to Hamilton Ontario, we have fallen completely in love with some of the stunning local venues! With such a variety, you are guaranteed to find a space that exceeds your wedding dreams. Check out our Instagram HERE!!!
The first wedding venue that took our breath away was Lakeview by Carmen’s Group. Located in the heart of Confederation Park, this Hamilton landmark is the perfect waterfront wedding location. With beach front and indoor ceremony options, you will have no problem planning your perfect wedding day. Lakeview has a gorgeous sandy beachfront and 60-foot lighthouse style viewing tower looking out onto the picturesque Toronto Skyline. Inside you will find an intimate cocktail lounge with an outdoor patio on the first floor, a beautiful second floor ballroom with a private balcony overlooking Lake Ontario. The grand bay windows provide wonderful natural light, and as the sun goes down you can dance the night away under the glistening lights hung from the vaulted ceilings. We loved the exposed beams, French doors and soft colour scheme that created the perfect back drop. We just can’t get enough for this dreamy wedding venue.
The next wedding venue we’ve fallen in love with is Liuna Gardens, located on the Lake Ontario Waterfront. With 12 acres of perfectly manicured gardens, this venue has lots of picturesque spots to choose from for your perfect wedding ceremony. Lakefront ceremonies are a very popular choice at Liuna gardens. You can walk down the isle bordered with overflowing flowers looking out onto the fantastic waterfront backdrop. If you are looking for indoor wedding options, choose from one the extravagant ballrooms this venue has to offer. The elegant Grand ballroom took our breathe away with its stone carved fire place, Italian marble flooring and spectacular crystal chandeliers. The private patios provide stunning lakefront views framed by gorgeous fountains and gardens. This venue has so much to offer, with all these options you are guaranteed to find an amazing spot for your wedding day.
Last but certainly not least is the incredible Old Ancaster Mill. This historic venue features a stunning waterfall surrounded by stone and beautiful gardens. The building is the centre of over 200 years of local history, and has been beautifully restored with seven unique rooms to choose from for your wedding day. The stone fire places, exposed wood beams and lots of natural light are accompanied by the perfect decor, creating a warm, romantic atmosphere in every room. There are so many picturesque spots on the grounds to chose from, your photographer is guaranteed to capture stunning shots of your wedding day. The Old Ancaster Mill is in high demand for weddings all year round, and the perfect choice for an intimate wedding venue.
These are just a few of the many amazing venues in the Hamilton area, and we are just so excited to have our newest location in the centre of it all!
