Ghost Bride

Against the backdrop of the 18th century, far from the ‘giddy liberty,’ vibrancy and excess of London, comes this dark fantasy love story set in rural England. A young, aristocratic and reluctant bride-to-be, Christiana D’Aubornville, is forced to marry the social climbing rich, wolf-jawed Frederick Beet-Routh to save the family’s ancestral home. However, everything changes with the arrival of a young weaver Jean-Michel Tisserand when he delivers the wedding dress. A powerful bond with the bride-to-be and the stranger is formed but as evening shadows fall, tumultuous events are unleashed with Christiana’s sudden death. Now in her ghostly persona, she sees an underbelly of greed by her father and simmering, long held resentments of those lower down the social ladder in the tightly knit community. Above all, Jean-Michel refuses to leave, despite ancient superstitions of the undead. Can a wandering ghost, Enrico Dandolo, a former Doge of Venice help the ghost bride Christiana and Jean-Michel whose love is doomed? Will the mysterious Lady of the Lake help the couple or will their enemies thwart them at every turn?
