Gowlland Harbour Resort Wedding, Quadra Island BC - Jeremiah + Shardae
I made the two ferry journey from Vancouver over to Quadra Island to the Gowlland Harbour Resort for Jeremiah and Shardae’s beautiful August wedding. The guesthouse was perfect for them to get ready in, with the ladies upstairs and the men immediately downstairs. Jeremiah and Shardae had their first look on the boardwalk out to the docks. It was so sweet to document their emotion after waiting all morning to see each other! Prior to their ceremony we used the property around the resort to do their bridal party photos - it’s such an ideal spot because there’s so much variety around the grounds. The ceremony was held on the field overlooking the harbour and I couldn’t imagine a better location for these two to say their vows! Most memorable to me about Shardae and Jeremiah’s wedding however, definitely had to be their reception. Their long table family style dinner felt so intimate and relaxed and guests enjoyed a beautiful view while eating their meal. Every single speech brought the entire long table full of guests to tears and laughter - usually at the same time. I seriously felt like I was on a comedy show and I know it was just as memorable for anyone in attendance. It was an incredible way to finish off their flawless wedding on Quadra Island and I felt so honoured to be the one documenting their wedding day.
