Downtown Victoria Wedding

I like surprises and this downtown Victoria wedding was the perfect surprise. With not much time before their wedding Connor’s sister called me asking if there was a chance I was free as her sister was planning a wedding and it was coming up soon. In no time Connor and Steve had such a fantastic day planned it made me wonder if they are on to something – great days can be planned fast! As this was a small affair I shot it on my own and while I miss Aaron when I don’t shoot with him it is nice to stretch myself and work solo. I loved so many things about this day and especially how it really showcases Victoria’s wedding style! It really was a downtown Victoria wedding with all of the vendors located within blocks of each other. Ferris’ Oyster Bar’s upstairs tapas bar Perro Negro transformed into ceremony and reception venue and I was so excited to shoot this. A few years ago we held an industry party here and they were so fantastic that I have been telling couples for years that it would be an amazing venue for a wedding. The food was great, the staff lovely and it was the perfect size for this intimate wedding. The gorgeous flowers came from our ever talented friends at Rook & Rose Flowers on LoJo. It was a family affair for cake and dress as the delicious chocolate cake and Connor’s gorgeous Martina Liana dress came from sister’s Mary of Blush Bridal Boutique and Susannah of Ruth & Dean. Steve’s Strellson suit came from just a few doors down at Outlook’s for Men. I am so glad to have witnessed Connor and Steve’s wedding day. Their joy at being joined together was palpable, contagious and so lovely to capture. One of my favourite things of the day was that they got ready together. In the same fashion they walked into their wedding ceremony together. It is rare for couples to do this but it was sweet and intimate and the perfect way to start their marriage. I don’t often get to shoot weddings downtown as I often find myself in fields or forests but even after living here for quite a while this downtown Victoria wedding led me to discover something new. Connor works with the city on public art installations and after visiting the top of the Yates St parkade they showed me the musical railings on the Bastion Square stairwell. It was a sweet spot for them to stop and make some music. Many thanks to all the talented vendors who made this day run so smoothly and look so darn stylish. So much love to Connor and Steve and all the best wishes for a joyful life together. Also at the end of the images there is a slideshow with music with more images. If our work speaks to you and you are planning a wedding please get in touch as we would love to hear from you!
