Beach Wedding Ideas from Coastal Vancouver
Coastal weddings are the perfect palette for brides who are looking for a cooler tone in their wedding day colors. This beach editorial is full of inspiration for those thinking of getting wed in a coastal/beach landscape... I mean, can you believe this is Canada??
From photographer Lushana Bale: "This is the story of Annabel and Charlie, an old world romance loosely inspired by the works of Emily Bronte. Rather than focus on a specific story, I wanted to create images that reflected the mood and emotion invoked in her writing. A complex love full of romance and longing. I was especially inspired by her female heroines and wanted to portray a feminine beauty that was delicate, strong and a little wild all at the same time. I really wanted all the elements of the shoot to mirror these seemingly opposite elements and to bring them together in harmony. This shoot was also planned just as winter was turning into spring, so the juxtaposition of soft and harsh seemed like the perfect way to celebrate the changing of the seasons."
"The Pacific Northwest coast on Vancouver Island provided the perfect setting with a mix of rugged windswept rocks and calm sandy beaches all at the same location. I reached out to Barb Walker of French Kiss Events who did all the heavy lifting in getting the shoot pulled together while I was still in Toronto. The florals by Thorn and Thistle continued the theme by artfully mixing soft pretty blooms with foliage to create a wild, foraged feel. The dress by Truvelle provided the perfect feel of nostalgic, delicate romance, as did the beautiful stationery by talented Vancouver calligrapher Maurelle Calligraphy and Design. On the day of the shoot the weather called for rain until just a few hours before we started when the sky cleared and we ended up with the most beautiful soft sunset."
