Engagement Romance for Tiffany + Francis…we love the west coast feel of this amazing engagement session. Relaxed, romantic and full of forest beauty! This couple’s personality is all over the forest photos and that’s how engagement photos should be.
The Gowlland Tod Park on Vancouver Island has it all – mountains, creeks, waterfalls, coastal rainforest and views. So it’s no surprise that this couple took advantage of some of the large fallen trees. The most romantic shots are of the couple enjoying guitar playing which is inspirational.
Tiffany and Francis were engaged November 2019 and had dreams of planning a true west coast wedding in September 2020. They began their venue search in early 2020 but the search was put on hold due to closures during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Venues were no longer taking bookings as they worked to postpone many weddings to 2021. Tiffany and Francis spent weeks calling and had no success and decided to hire a wedding planner to help in their search. (Many thanks to Kimberly Solecki – at Borrowed and Blue Events). Kim was amazing to work with and within a week she was able to find them the last spot in 2021 at a brand new venue in Central Saanich called Langtry Walk.
However, the second wave hit and with it new provincial guidelines so Tiffany and Francis decided to make the difficult decision to pare down to 50 guests. Due to the size of both their families this decision was incredibly hard. They decided to include the wedding party (no partners), parents, grandparents & aunts and uncles. A ‘wish list’ of guests was kept in case guidelines relax by the wedding date.
Langtry Walk are working to ensure all safety measures will be taken including limiting guests per table and creating a new table layout to space out tables safely. Everyone is hopeful with the news of a vaccine on the way that the plan with 50 guests will work out smoothly. No matter what happens, we know this couple will have an amazing and intimate wedding in September 2021. We love that they are going to start their lives together even through difficult circumstances! In the meantime, these photos show the engagement romance they were able to enjoy…
