Cecil Green and Kirin Starlight Wedding | Carman + Martin

Square

It was a dry summer this year. So dry that we had more than our fair share of forest fires in BC. One fire on Vancouver Island in particular was so widespread, that the smoke made its way to the Lower Mainland, and made a visit to Carman + Martin’s Cecil Green and Kirin Starlight wedding.

We started the morning with wedding photos at Nitobe Memorial Gardens at UBC. In the early morning, there were few visitors around, so enjoying the gardens was far easier for the entire wedding party.

Since we didn’t spend the morning with the bride and groom at the bride’s home, they brought the red umbrella with them for wedding photos at Nitobe Gardens. Nitobe Gardens UBC wedding Nitobe Gardens UBC wedding coupleThe tranquil garden was a beautiful location nearby to Cecil Green, where Carman and Martin held their outdoor wedding ceremony.wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC Vancouver wedding photographer wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBCCarman’s red Chinese dress looked amazing against the contrasting green trees and foliage of Nitobe Memorial Garden. My aim was to produce wedding photos with a simple, tranquil quality – Preserving calm is so key in these moments before the wedding ceremony. wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBCOne last look at the garden before leaving for their wedding ceremony at Cecil Green House, UBC. wedding photos at Nitobe Garden, UBC wedding party at Nitobe Gardens Cecil Green wedding at UBCThe smoky fog was like a diffusion filter over the outdoor ceremony, softening the sunlight and creating an overcast feel to the images while still allowing some blue sky. I love it when weddings at Cecil Green House are set up outdoors with the front altar towards the house. It makes for beautiful wedding photos with the house in the background rather than the hedge.
