John & Leigh-Ann: Barkley Brook Wedding

John and Leigh-Ann were married on August 4th at Barkley Brook Gardens, which is a private property near Fort Langley, BC.  It was a hot, bright and sunny day, but perfect for their outdoor ceremony beside the pond and surrounded by greenery and trees. 

We stayed at Barkley Brook after the ceremony to take all of their photos.  This was perfect, not having to drive to another location saved us more time for photos and Barkley Brook was a fantastic location.  

Everyone in the wedding party looked fabulous! I love the grey and yellow that they incorporated into what each of them were wearing.  Each of the bridesmaids had their own unique dress that they picked out themselves, but all matched with the colour grey! The yellow sunflower bouquets and yellow converse shoes on the guys really popped with the grey tones.  Big thanks to all of the ladies and the guys for being such great subjects in front of the camera!

Loved that Barkley Brook Gardens had some unique "props" and features to use for photos... we were able to use a row boat on the pond, along with a bridge, unique buildings and greenery around the property.

After we were finished with photos, we headed off to their reception at Murrayville Hall in Langley, BC. John and Leigh-Ann's family and friends had a couple hours before the reception to set up and decorate and they did a great job.  All of their hard work and bustling created a gorgeous venue for their reception.  

Big thanks to my assistant for the day, Jodie Hadden and to my husband Steve!  Leigh-Ann (the bride) is actually Steve's cousin, so it was really neat to be able to work with family!  Since Steve was attending as a guest, I made use of his presence and handed him my backup camera during the ceremony and formal photos to take some shots. :)
