Intimate wedding at Jericho Beach: Bianca + Daniel

Bianca and Daniel invited us to photograph their intimate wedding at Jericho Beach last August. With her family in Australia and his in Mexico, this couple wanted to show the local Vancouver nature in their photos. The two of them also love skiing and biking, so a day in nature was key!

They opted to take photos in a couple of different areas, before meeting up with their guests at the beach for their ceremony and an epic sunset picnic!

First look and forest photos in UBC

After a beautiful first look, we ventured into Pacific Spirit Forest together. It’s one of our favourite places in UBC, because the forest is just amazing! It made the perfect background for a salsa intermezzo! That’s right, Bianca and Daniel met in Cuba on a salsa trip, so of course some salsa needed to happed! These two are GOOOOD! 🙂

Portraits and ceremony at Jericho Beach

If you’re familiar with Jericho Beach, you know it’s pretty large! So before the ceremony, we joined Bianca and Daniel at a different location on the beach, for more portraits. They didn’t want to leave their guests for too long after the ceremony. The beach provided a totally different environment than the forest.

When it was time for the ceremony, everyone gathered around in a secluded spot. Accompanied by romantic guitar tunes, everyone got in the mood quickly. One of their friends made sure family at home could watch the ceremony life. My personal favourite moment is always the personal vows! They’re just the best. The moment when every guest held the rings to make a wish for the couple, was also very special.

Wedding picnic and sunset photos at Jericho Beach

After the ceremony, it was time for their epic picnic. Epic in so many ways, haha, not only was the sunset breathtaking, the atmosphere was so warm and happy. And of course as Belgians (who love to eat) we noticed the impressive spread. 😉

We snuck out for a couple of quick sunset photos with Vancouver in the background, but quickly returned the couple to their guests. And that’s where we left them. We walked away hearing the sound of the ocean, guitar music and laughter.

Thank you so much Bianca and Daniel for trusting us with your photography! We had a great time with you two and we hope you’re still dancing a lot of salsa!
