Vanessa & Simon, A Ucluelet/Tofino wedding

You never know the weather will do on the Pacific Rim at any time of year, and mid-October is no exception, with their reception held at the Ucluelet wedding venue, Black Rock Resort, Vanessa and Simon held their actual wedding ceremony on Wickinannish Beach. The weather gods were kind to us and the downpour relented just before the ceremony was due to start. A play on the beach afterwards and then back to the wine cellar at Black Rock for their reception.

Comments most welcome below.

And you can also see some of my favorite wedding photos from the Ucluelet area here

AMAZING! Chris, You were awesome to work with. Vanessa and I were lucky enough to have the skies open up for us, but they would have only been a memory if you weren’t there to capture them so beautifully! I can’t wait to see the rest. Thank you again!

You captured the essence of who they are as a couple. Such fun they were having. A most memorable union and the pics will be there as testament to this wonderful day.
Love to both of you always,

Amazing backdrop that smiled as much as Vanessa and Simon were smiling. You captured their energy and Joy!!

Technical Question… How did you get the four of them to stop in mid-stride at the same time for the running photo? That’s talent!!

Meredith Dawson - 25/10/2012 - 5:20 am

Simply Magic! In every picture I have seen there is that essence that exudes from Vanessa and Simon in their connection & love. I will definately recommend your amazing talent Chris.
