Stanley park elopement, Ashleigh and Andrew

When I got contacted to photograph the Stanley Park elopement of Ashleigh and Andrew, I didn’t have to think twice! 

Ashleigh and Andrew came all the way from Australia to get married in Vancouver! Going somewhere new and deciding to elope is quite the adventure! A small group of friends and family travelled all over the world to celebrate with them.

Prior to the wedding Ashleigh went on a quest to find the perfect tree. She scouted all over the park and I think she did a wonderful job!

After a heartfelt ceremony, they shared a glass of bubbles with their guests. Next they took a stroll through the forest. Despite her delicate lace dress, Ashleigh walked happily through the fallen leaves and forest soil. I loved it!

On to Second Beach. Wild and windy, but absolutely gorgeous. Rays of sunshine pierced dramatically through the clouds. Luckily the looming rain held off until they hopped in the limo.

Thanks a lot for having me guys! I rarely photograph without Jelger, who was shooting in Edmonton at the time. You gave me a great time! 😉
