Rowena's Inn On the River Wedding and Minter Garden Wedding // Bonnie & Alister

Without knowing it their lives would change forever with a chance encounter on a camping trip when Bonnie and Ali met. Years later and a whirlwind romance with Ali in Canada they would be wed. This summer I photographed Bonnie and Ali's engagement session in Chilliwack which may be a sweet reminder of their lives in Canada before leaving to Tasmania.

On a perfect November day it would be remembered as their day. Unlike some of the summer months earlier this year, today had a beautiful sunshine peaking through the winter clouds. It was a beautiful day for a winter wedding. It would be the day where Bonnie went from being a 'Miss' to a 'Mrs' - Ali's Mrs. With her sisters and childhood best friend helping her get ready before their church ceremony. Bonnie stunned the room in her beautiful lace fairy tale dress.

After the 'I do's' and warm wishes from friends and family we drove onward to Rowena's Inn on the River for photographs. We were prepared for a downpour of bad weather as that was the habit in the recent weeks. Lucky for us it was a beautiful winter day. A slight chill in the air but sun in the sky. The twinkle lights at Minter Garden welcomed guests at the reception and candle light on the tables embraced guests in the room. 

I hope you both are having an amazing time on your honeymoon this week. Thank you so much for choosing us to be there for your wedding. It was truly such a pleasure. It's always so exciting when we have a couple who likes to try something different and we loved using external lighting at the inn. You both are incredible and we're so excited for you and your new lives together.
