Hornby Island Wedding

Last September we were so thrilled to photograph our first Hornby Island wedding. This gem of an island is my most favourite of all the small islands around Vancouver Island. The gorgeous beaches, old growth forests, and dramatic cliffs of Helliwell Park are just a few of the reasons and Melanie and Julian chose beautiful Sea Breeze Lodge to have their wedding. Their Hornby Island wedding ceremony took place on the beach on a warm and sunny September afternoon. We were perfectly times to be out on the cliffs of Helliwell Park for the gorgeous early evening sun. I have visited this park many times and it was so lovely to spend time there with Melanie and Julian and their closest friend’s. The sun set over cocktails, speeches and much laughter at their Sea Breeze Lodge wedding reception. These two put a lot of love into their wedding details. They hand made the customized wood burned coasters and the sweet flowery lollies for each guest. Melanie’s dress is honestly one of my most favourite to have photographed especially when dancing. Melanie and Julian did a classic Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers style dance that was so perfectly suited to her dress that flowed and danced with her. This Hornby Island wedding was a treat for us from beginning to end and we are so happy to have worked with this sweet couple in one of the most beautiful places.Last September we were so thrilled to photograph our first Hornby Island wedding.

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!
