Destination Wedding in Vancouver
Well… sort of… Sukhi and James are both from England. As much of Sukhi’s family is here in Vancouver, they opted to get married here so that all of their family could attend. Initially, Sukhi’s sister Reetu came and visited us to discuss the wedding. After much deliberation, they decided that we would be their photographer for the wedding. We were elated to hear the news and we really looked forward to their wedding day.
Preparation for a great Wedding
We started all the festivities a few days before the wedding. We gathered at Riverside Banquet Halls in Richmond for some traditional ceremonies.
A new day and a new life begins in Vancouver
The wedding day arrives and the weather looks unstable. Common place in Vancouver, but nonetheless, we agree that today we would make do with whatever the skies would bring our way. We arrived at Sukhi’s house and captured some candids of everyone getting ready.
On James’s side of things, life was hustle and bustle there too!
Family ties run deep
Family is a very important part of any wedding. Sukhi and James made sure that they left ample time to photograph with their family.
Walk down the aisle
Part of any wedding is of course the ceremony. The ceremony was held at Newlands Golf Course and although it looked like the skies were going to open up to rain, the decision to have an outdoor wedding stayed. Praying to the weather gods to hold out for a little bit was all we could do. They obliged, raining only minutes after the ceremony ended.
Rain in Vancouver? No problem. Wedding Photography can be beautiful when it rains.
Now, due to some timing constraints, we made a quick dash out to a local park area to get some photos of the lovely couple. When asked if the rain would bother them, both simply replied “Nope.” My kind of couple!
Off to the reception
To finish off the evening we arrived back at Newlands for the reception. The solarium was beautifully decorated and the energy in the air was just electric.
We want to wish James and Sukhi a happy and wonderful marriage together. We hope that they come back and visit us one day with little ones in tow!
It was an absolute pleasure to photograph your wedding. And we are truly honored to be your photographers.
