Vancouver Island Wedding Photographer, Merridale Ciderworks Wedding Photos, Vancouver Island Wedding Elopement, Willy + Jenelle

“We’re planning an intimate elopement at the Merridale Ciderworks on Vancouver Island, our closest family + a few of our best friends…” + then she proceeds to tell me she loves black + white photographs, that they were her favourite in fact. From that moment, i was so excited to be considered to photograph such a beautiful occasion…

Jenelle + Willy. From Jenelle pointing to her mom during bridal preparation, asking her to please. please don’t cry yet… to the bride + groom siamotainously warming their own hands before joining together for vows (your’ll see)… i had a smile on my face this entire day. Really. I absolutely love weddings + this January afternoon was yet again another reminder why…

I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into their day.

Vancouver Island Wedding Photography | Crown Mansion Wedding Photographs | Joel + Emily’s Vancouver Island Wedding

Perfect light cascaded on the bride as she made her way down the aisle to her waiting groom.  In the intimate, stunning halls of the Crown Mansion, the couple said their vows as their closest friends and family looked on, held their breaths and wiped away tears.

I am so appreciative + honoured to have been the one to capture the wedding of Joel + Emily, the two loveliest of people. Hope you enjoy a little peak into their day.

Vancouver Island Wedding Photographer / Affinity Guesthouse Wedding Photographs / Nanaimo Wedding Photographer – Gillian + Steve’s Wedding Photos

Gillian + Steve’s Wedding, where to begin… the first memory that instantly comes to my mind is the beautiful bride, Gillian – her walk down the isle… such pure, sincere emotion – not only for the man awaiting her at the end of the isle, but for the man walking beside her. As for the groom, Steve – he made their first kiss pretty special – something i have never seen before! Another highlight has to go to one of their ushers – i will forever be thankful for his confetti toss during the receiving line (scroll down +  you will see exactly what i am referring to). Lastly, the speeches, the heartfelt speeches (including Gillian’s sister’s speech by way of song!) bringing every single person to tears. I mentioned to Gill’s mom after her speech that i wanted to be an honorary family member for the day because they were all just such good people…

Hope you enjoy a little piece of their day.



love life, Sabrina Patrice
