Simple, Intimate Elopement with a Rainbow Glitter Dress!

Carly and Shawn met through their local music scene. They’d been acquaintances for a few years when they ended up crashing a random Christmas party together one night and realised that they were a hilarious team. After denying their feelings for a few more months they finally decided to “ruin” their friendship and start dating. 

They got engaged in late January last year, and decided they would be married in the following summer, so didn’t have a lot of time to plan. “We just knew we wanted our best friends to be there and for us to elope somewhere outside,” the bride told us, “where we could get away for the weekend but still not have to take time off of work. We travel a lot, so getting married somewhere outside of our home city was a given, and thankfully we decided to keep it in the same province and not too far away.”

Friends, Family, Tacos & Tequila: A Laid Back 70s Inspired Warehouse Wedding

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!

“Our wedding was laid back, non-traditional and easy-going”, they told us. “We wanted the wedding to compliment and reflect who we are as people. A main goal for us was to make sure that our friends and family felt comfortable and at ease. Putting aside formality really helped us achieve this. At the end of the day, your guests are part of the experience and what better way to say thank you then by letting them have fun!”

Intimate & Bohemian, Adventure Wedding

Jazmin and Nate’s romance developed over a couple of years of travel and adventure. They couldn’t think of any better way to celebrate their unity than by doing what they love and sharing it with a small group of close family and friends. 

“This was the most amazing experience we have yet to have together,” explained Jazmin. “We were able to create new memories by exploring Banff National Park & area for the first time with some very special people that flew from all over the US to see us exchange vows. Not to mention, we got to capture all of our first times biking up a mountain, the notorious Moraine Lake, and having the majestic location all to ourselves.”

All-Black Everything: A Death Metal Inspired Wedding

The inspiration behind Lauren and Travis’ wedding came from two places; being themselves, and their love of death metal music! “My family were not thrilled about certain things in the lead up to our wedding as they’re very traditional,” said Lauren. “But we didn’t compromise who we were and went ahead with them anyway!”

For the couple this meant staying true to their own personal style. The whole wedding party, including Lauren, wore all-black – and even most of the guests embraced the dress code too (including Lauren’s parents, as a show of their love and support!) They had an-all black wedding cake, with black skull topper and a black macaron tower.

Free-Spirited Outdoor Wedding Style in Quebec

Serious wife goals and life goals from today’s shoot, a dreamy festival-inspired wedding ceremony in Mouton Village, a charming estate hidden in a valley in Québec, Canada. In fact we love this so much we’ve shared it twice! If you’ve picked up a copy of issue 23 you may recognise a few of these shots from Kat’s ‘Dear Kat’ letter!

Nestled in the countryside, Mouton Village is full of quirk and charm. Photographer Yanique Fillion wanted to use it as the location “to give the impression of being lost, and very far from civilisation. John and Natasha allowed us to capture their love, wrapped in sun and flowers. Who doesn’t want to get married after looking at these pictures?!”

And she has a point. The team made the most of the beautiful outdoors with a towering white geometric backdrop for the ceremony, adorned with light fabric that fluttered in the breeze. Using nature’s movements was a major inspiration for this shoot, as they decorated their reception with a parasol with floaty fabric that Natasha and John were lost in their own world underneath. Their long trestle table was prepared for an idyllic outdoorsy reception.

Colourful Québec Wedding Fiesta

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.

“Our wedding was a rustic and eclectic wedding fiesta”, Isabelle said. “The idea of making the day so colourful is something different than all the white and pastel colours people usually choose for barn weddings.”

“I love Mexico and its culture”, she continued. “Frida Kahlo and her artwork, the spicy food and the Dia de los Muertos celebrations. I thought the idea of combining beautifully colourful papel picado with skulls was the perfect mix and that it represented us both well. Plus, Olivier asked me to marry him at our favourite old school deli with love songs sang by mariachis. We booked them for the wedding and they adapted and sang our favourite French love song in Spanish.”
