The Venue: Gowlland Harbour Resort in Quadra Island

With several years of experience photographing weddings, this is definitely still one of my favorite wedding venues on Vancouver Island. What I love so much about the Gowlland Harbour Resort wedding venue is that the entire resort is basically all yours. The venue is located in this little inlet on Quadra Island so you are only surrounded by your friends and family. 

From the epic ocean views to its intimate feel, it truly is one of the best Vancouver Island Wedding venues. So if you’re looking for an intimate and beautiful wedding venue on Vancouver Island, definitely consider Gowlland Harbour Resort.

Saying “I do” at Gowlland Harbour Resort

Jayme and Adam decided not to do a first look because they wanted to have that raw and real reaction during the ceremony. While I love first looks, I think in this case this was actually a good call. Adam teared up as soon as he saw her walk down the aisle and it was the most beautiful moment. 

This intimate ceremony at Gowlland Harbour Resort took place overlooking the ocean. It was so magical watching these two get married. They were both so emotional and there were so many moments that made this wedding so unique. Their friend officiated the wedding so he was choking up, Jayme and Adam were crying, and well basically everyone else was also tearing up. You could really feel the love that everyone had for this beautiful couple!

A Magical Dinner Reception to End the Night

In typical Gowlland Harbour fashion, there was a big family style dinner on the deck. This is truly one of the best parts of this wedding venue. Having a large family style dinner creates so much more of an intimate and close environment which was perfect for this wedding. Not to mention, it is the most beautiful space. There’s string lights everywhere and the deck is surrounded by trees. It is the perfect wedding venue for a whimsical wedding!

I will truly never get tired of capturing weddings at this stunning water front wedding venue!
