September 6, 2021

Kira and Stephen opted for a boozy brunch reception, complete with dancing, followed by an after party in a hotel lobby. This couple were the epitome of laid back with their plans, choosing things which made the day enjoyable for everyone rather than sticking to tradition. There was no cake (who needs one when you've got so many delicious pastries!?) and the bridesmaid wore whatever they wanted. The groom and his groomsmen opted to match in bright blue suits.

Emily and Jan's boat-access, micro wedding was pure magic. Jan wore a vintage suit while Emily was in a hand-dyed, hand-made red wedding gown. Only their closet family and shaggy dog made the Covid-cut guest list for the day which took place on Slocan Lake in British Columbia. They were wed under a lovingly homemade driftwood arch on a private cliff, which could only be accessed by boat. After the ceremony they ate charcuterie and cliff jumped - perfection!

Bethany and Ryan's styled their summer 2019 wedding impeccably with 70s influences and a laid back vibe. They chose a warehouse space, The Ellis Building in Vancouver, as the venue, which they loved because it was a real blank canvas, didn't have too many fussy details but also didn't need much in the way of extra decorations - it was super cool on it's own. They really just wanted to have a big party with their friends and family, to eat tacos and drink tequila!

Isabelle and Olivier were married in Québec, Canada. Although barn weddings are now seen as pretty mainstream, and this couple are anything but, the bride had dreamt of being married in a big beautiful barn ever since she was a child... so that's exactly what they did! They still wanted to put their own spin on the day though (of course!) so they went down the hyper colourful, Mexican vibe for their theme.

Nautical & Retro Wedding in Canada

Sarah and Drew wanted their wedding to really showcase where they grew up (and hosted their wedding): Newfoundland and Labrador. Although they had been living in Alberta for a number of years, they wanted their wedding to reflect their love of the most easterly province of Canada. “We had been living in Alberta for a number of years, and wanted our wedding to reflect our East Coast roots, so we included elements that evoked the island everywhere we could, "said Sarah. “The aisle was lined with rubber boots, we used a lobster trap as a card holder and the reception tables were named after Newfoundland communities. The head table was named Heart’s Content.”

Lindsay & Devin

February 9, 2016

British-born Aisling and Australian Jeremiah met in Vancouver. Although they now live in Australia, they wanted to go back to where they first met to be married. "Our wedding theme was 'Two Worlds Collided', began the bride. "The INXS song of the same name was how it all began it was our song from the day we met. It suits us because our personalities and tastes are very different. We are from two different countries. We had two different wedding locations and I ended up with two wedding outfits."
