RAWDON, Quebec— A bride-to-be fell to her death while getting her wedding pictures taken, tumbling down from a cliff into a waterfall while she was wearing her wedding dress, police said Friday.

Sgt. Ronald McInnis of the Quebec provincial police said her body was recovered about four hours after she slipped from a rock and fell into Dorwin Falls in Rawdon, north of Montreal. She had chosen the site as the backdrop for her wedding pictures.

McInnis said family members and her fiance were on location Friday evening. McInnis said two witnesses had to be hospitalized and treated for shock.

The woman was on the verge of getting married “within days,” police said.

McInnis described the site as being quite elevated and rocky, with water “violently” rushing below.
