It's been wonderful to get to know Debbie over the last number of months. And then finally we got to meet David as well in the last couple of months leading up to their wedding day on one of his visits from London. We loved getting to know them together through their couple session at Hycroft, and were excited to be photographing their wedding day.
They're lovely together - always smiling, and so happy and grateful. It's contagious! And their wedding day was no different.
Debbie's day started at her parents' home in Port Coquitlam with all of the excitement that makes that part of the day so much fun for us to cover! When we arrive, Debbie was rehearsing a song she was preparing to sing to David at their reception. Their wedding vows took place at the Maple Ridge Alliance Church, conducted in part by her family pastor, in a heartfelt ceremony.
From there we had a chance to enjoy some of the sunshine with Debbie and David at a beautiful park in Maple Ridge that runs alongside Pitt River. We loved the dramatic landscapes in the area - a perfect setting for the two of them.
After the creative session, we arrived at Swan-e-Set to a reception for all of their guests on the lawn - it was beautiful! Swan-e-Set itself always reminds us of a modern-day castle, rising above the fields. Their wedding reception was full of life, from some loving speeches from family and friends, to Debbie's song to David, fireworks on the great lawn, and their final send off at the end of the evening.
Here is the story of their day. Congratulations Debbie and David!
