When I first spoke with Serena on the phone, I became immediately excited as I realized she was a fellow Brit! Then when I met with John and Serena, I knew I had to shoot their wedding!! We shared the same love for Vancouver and dogs, so I knew it was a match made in photography heaven. They're easy going and nothing could bring them down on their wedding day- Serena had the biggest smile on her face the entire day. It was great!
John and Serna decided to get married in the garden of their condo building. Now this sounds kind of unusual for a wedding venue (a first for me) but when you see how gorgeous the garden is, I'm sure you'll understand their decision. Luckily, some of the blossom trees were in full bloom and the weather was amazing!
John got ready in their apartment, whilst Serena stayed with their best man, Lisa and then she put her dress on in the building managers office. Which was another first for me, a bride getting ready in one end of the room whilst Sharon was working at her desk on the other. After the wedding ceremony, we took some shots in the garden and on their neighbours balcony then they headed to Tapshack (their local pub) for some drinks and grub. This was such a fun wedding, my face hurt from laughing and smiling. I've put together a few highlights of their wedding story..
