I’ve said it a million times, my most favorite place I have ever photographed a wedding in BC is at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort on the Sunshine Coast. My first Rockwater Secret Cove Wedding was in 2008, and since then I have photographed a dozen or so weddings there. Each of them different and each of them absolutely amazing. Different how, you ask? Let’s just say this one kicked off with 90km/h winds and heavy (HEAVVVY) rain.

Day ruined right? WRONG! We toughed it out, had a blast and to top things off, once the ceremony finished, the sun came out and we were all treated to a glorious sunset and (dare I say) a rather balmy evening (as balmy as it can be at the end of September on BC’s west coast). Weather aside, the day was nothing short of magical. We laughed, we cried, Diane and Brock got married. You know, no big deal. :)

Flowers: Les Fleurs de Fis, Cake: Cheeky Monkey Cakes, Hairstylist: Creekside Salon

100% of this wedding was shot on Kodak and Ilford film and developed and scanned by the amazing folks over at Caribou Film Lab.
