hornby island beautiful rainy day wedding

hornby island wedding in the rain ~ emily & tyler’s beautiful rainy day wedding at the very lovely sea breeze lodge on hornby island.

most couples, when planning a summer wedding, plan on sunshine. They have a plan b, if the rains comes, but the aspiration is for sunshine. Same goes for emily & tyler. But when they woke up to rain, there was not a hint of cloudiness in their celebration. They were as bright & welcoming of their wedding day no matter what the weather brought. There is so much beauty in a rainy day wedding – those clouds are like a big soft box in the sky & help to keep the energy of the day contained, personal, a little quieter. And so it was for emily & tyler & their oh-so-lovely walk into marriage. They gathered their tribe of family & friends on the island that is dearest to their hearts, hornby island. A place they come every year & where they hope to come more & more often over the years; when kids come & summers can be shared with littles on the beach & in the forest, exploring the natural world & all it has to offer. So wrapped in the beauty of gentle rain, in a magical place, surrounded by love & support, emily & tyler promised their lives to one another. It was touching & tender. A walk down to the beautiful sandstone beach in front of sea breeze lodge with their best people, to play with umbrellas & soft light, kisses & rubber boots, lots of ease & grace. The speeches were a mixture of hilarious & heartwarming, the food was fabulous & the 1st dances were, well you’ll see it in the photos. What a day!

emily & tyler, thank you… thank you for your spirits & enthusiasm, for your open hearts & for welcoming me so warmly into your day. I wish you both heaps of love & happiness in the years to come. And i look forward to seeing you, here on hornby, summer into summer.

hornby island family photographer

Now & then i get the opportunity to be a photographer right here at home, on hornby island. Better yet with a sweet family who are also good friends. And then when everything unfolds rather perfectly… helliwell park in the early evening, beautiful light, the lingering warmth of summer, fabulous people, good connections, a whole lot of lovely & it all leads to some sweet captures, i’m left wondering, how’d i get to be so lucky?
