So I thought I’d post a series of Wedding Venue reviews before my main wedding season takes off. Might be helpful to future brides in their planning.
First up it the Tigh Na Mara Resort in Parksville. I shoot a lot of weddings here each year, it’s a very popular venue. Their main ceremony location is the Gazebo overlooking the Bay. I’ve also shot weddings inside the resort in inclement weather. They can host large weddings 150+guests, as well as the smaller intimate weddings, e.g. my last wedding there was in January for around 30 guests. They have multiple banquet halls depending on your wedding size, and serve great food (very important for hungry photographers!). In terms of photographic locations I either shoot down on the beach if the tide is out, or it’s a short 5 minute drive to one my favourite locations, Madronna Point, which is across the bay from Tigh Na Mara.
Here’s a montage of some of my wedding images from the resort.
And you can see the many weddings I’ve photographed at Tigh Na Mara here.
