I have a little back story for this wedding, of Gemma. When I first started shooting weddings (2010?) Gemma came over to Thetis Island with me to be my assistant and second shooter. Fast forward a few years and she’s engaged and ready to get married when I run into her and Allan at a wedding fair here in Victoria. Well, the day finally came and we made it happen. Gemma and Allan planned the most perfect backyard wedding at their home. I met up with the girls at their hotel room at Hotel Magnolia for the getting ready pics before we all went and did some photos around downtown. With their backyard wedding and reception happening one after the other they choose to see each other before the ceremony which really gave the day a nice flow. Seriously. Such a perfect day and wedding. The blue shoes, beautiful bride, amazing light, hilarious family, lanterns in the trees, sun flare….so much goodness. There are a lot of pics here so I hope you enjoy lookin’ through them.I was doing some detail shots when Gemma and the girls arrived…Gemma. Yeah. You look amazing.Allan, waitingThe brosFergus. Colourful. Stylish. Hilarious.I couldn’t decide which one to show so I figured I’ll just put both up. I also want to mention that Alan’s ring was handmade, by himself. He’s obviously a wicked good machinist because it is an incredible band.I love this one below. LOVE.
