Married in VanDusen Gardens | Gail & Patrick

We like to suggest great ways for our wedding couples to get the most out of their days. Mostly to remember and enjoy everything that they do, without being distracted by the myriad of details that can feel almost oppressive as they approach their wedding days and then on the day itself. Gail and Patrick deserve huge kudos for making the most out of their day. And that was most obvious at their wedding reception which was non-stop fun from the beginning to the end. We loved their day when it came and it was a great follow-on to their couple session in Stanley Park back in the Spring.

We started our time with Gail and Patrick as Gail was getting ready for a tea ceremony at her parents' home. From there, they had their ceremony in the gorgeous setting of VanDusen Botanical Gardens on one of the lawns next to a lagoon. It was a beautiful backdrop to their ceremony and location for the start of their creative session.

There were a lot of special touches from Gail and Patrick's day - here are a few of our favourites:

- The tea ceremony at the beginning of the day felt so beautifully emotional - we were honoured to be there and to capture it. - Their wedding ceremony in VanDusen Gardens was lovely and sunny - and it was a great location for images with the wedding party afterwards. - Our time with the awesome wedding party, including Mark, and Gail's sister, May, during the creative sessions was easygoing, fun and beautiful - and it shows through in the images. - We loved the opening Lion Dance at their wedding reception! Loved, loved, loved it! - The rest of their wedding reception at Jade Restaurant was non-stop fun from the song and dance numbers by their guests to the games that their MCs had cooked up for them.
