Merridale Ciderworks Wedding Day Photographs / Vancouver Island Wedding Photographer / Nanaimo Wedding Photographer / Simon + Racheal’s Wedding Day

Honestly? When i think of this wedding day, what immediately comes to mind is how incredibly authentic it was, in the most romantic way. Bridal Prep in a YURT! (Not sure what a Yurt is? Neither was i! They have been around for at least 3000 years and are known for their calming benefits!) … guests singing alongside the bride + groom to heartfelt songs during the ceremony, the bride’s handsome grandfather fulfilling the responsibilities of the ring bearer, a sit down family style delicious meal, the adorable couple sneaking kisses through out the day behind her gorgeous bouquet of flowers, grey knit ties, a live band (consisting of the most genuine, talented musicians!)…+ of course a bride + groom who have been best friends for as long as they can remember. For these two, spending together forever had been set in motion years ago, they just needed the rings.

I just loved it all. Hope you enjoy a little piece of their day.


love life, Sabrina Patrice

This day was something pretty incredible. From Conor (the groom!) entering the ceremony on a golf cart while a Beatles track played in the background; to their sparkler exit – surrounded by family + friends applauding their love.

I hope you enjoy a few photographs from what i feel was, from start to finish, a perfect day. xo
