Pipe Shop wedding in North Vancouver

Pipe Shop wedding in North Vancouver: Natalie + Hans

Natalie and Hans’ Pipe Shop wedding had by far one of the most unique ceremonies I’ve ever witnessed! Going from their “flower girls” to the readings, to their friend who officiated while the two of them signed the documents later at night… They thought about everything and really made it their own. When thinking about it, I can actually say that about the entire wedding day! From the moment we met, they had a vision of a candid day, with as much spontaneity and candidness as possible!

I (Tanja) started in Gastown, where Natalie and her bridesmaids got ready in the couple’s apartment. From there on, they walked to Waterfront Station where they took the SeaBus to North Vancouver and strolled to the venue. I’m pretty sure a bride in a wedding dress on the SeaBus is a rare sight, but so fun!!! Meanwhile Jelger stayed with Hans, who had a drink with his groomsmen.

The weather didn’t cooperate, but the two of them and their wedding party braved the rain for some fun group photos. And Stephanie, their fabulous wedding planner, arranged a little blue hour shoot with just the two of them after dinner. You know how everyone is always raving about sunset? Well, there’s also that magical little gap of time after sunset when everything looks blue, but not too dark yet. I’m so happy we got to walk out on the pier for that and capture Natalie and Hans in front of the gorgeous Vancouver skyline.

After the speeches, the couple’s first dance was rather spectacular! Such a fun choreographed dance, super playful and unique, just like the two of them. And of course, as expected, the party afterwards had a full dance floor!

Thanks so much Natalie and Hans for having us at your big day!
