Melissa & Simon’s Wedding | Victoria Wedding Photographer

Melissa and Simon were my last wedding of 2009, in fact they got married on the last day of 2009. Their wedding was at one of Victoria’s finest wedding venues and it was absolutely gorgeous. The ceremony was at the beautiful St. Ann’s Academy and the reception was at the Harbour Towers Hotel. Melissa and Simon are wonderful! I can’t say enough how lucky I am to have such amazing clients. Not only are they and their friends and family such warm people but they are really fun too! The whole bridal party truly had an interest in creating fun pictures, even though the weather was slightly less than desirable. I’m from the West (or should I say Wet) Coast so I know that it rains a lot.  But why did it have to rain all day on Melissa and Simon’s wedding day? Some people would let this get them down, but not this group! What was even more remarkable was more than half of the bridal party had flown all the way from New Zealand and Australia for the wedding and they probably thought that 10°C and raining was some sort of cruel and unusual torture!

Isn’t this the funkiest hair salon ever? The staff at The Fix were so much fun and did such a fabulous job on all the ladies’ hair. Melissa gave all of her bridesmaids these beautiful hair clips, below on the right. 

See what I mean! So much fun! Even in the POURING RAIN they were still game for pictures and happy to show off their wicked rad shoes.

After we were thoroughly soaked we found shelter at the back of the B.C. Parliament buildings. This is a really great location. We were safe from the rain and the wind and there was really yummy light.

The lovely ladies from Details did a fantastic job of decorating the banquet hall at the Harbour Towers. The cupcake tower was amazing. It had at least 5 or 6 distinct cupcake flavours and it was complete with matching bride and groom treats at the top!

I love how happy they look during their first dance.
