Here Come the Brides (Part Two)

During a walk at Vancouver’s Van Dusen Botanical Garden last month, I came across two newly minted couples in the space of a few minutes.

I was there to shoot the botanical garden’s spectacular Laburnum Walk, but found one entrance being put to good use by the couple above and their wedding party.

Not a problem; it was their big day, and the setting had a fairytale quality for such photos. After snapping a couple of romantic shots, I could make my way past all the others admiring the cascades of blossoms …

… and, of course, found another newly married pair and their photographer at the other end of the gently curved 55m (180 foot) long pathway.

While the weather was beautiful, a gentle breeze lifted this bride’s veil in what made, I thought, for a poignant moment.
