How it all began….

It was court that brought these two lovebirds together. Not the Crown Court, but the badminton court! After a few rallies and some net spins, these singles became a double, and a romantic proposal in North Vancouver led to this rustic Hidden River Cabins wedding.

The Dresses!

After a long search, Gemma found her dream boho gown from Marrime Bridalwear in Kendal, Cumbria.

She found her bridesmaid dresses at ASOS. We love with the whimsical style and rustic blue colour palette.

The Suits!

Dave sourced his suit from Mr Mister in Barrow and his groomsmen’s suits from Slaters in Preston.

Hair and Makeup

Gemma wanted natural makeup with a hint of copper. For her hair she opted for some boho braids with natural curls and flowers. Bridget Foster granted Gemma’s wishes, and we think she looks radiant.

The Venue: Hidden River Cabins

The couple chose this venue because it is, in their words, “beautiful, different, natural and private.” Surrounded by spectacular scenery, we definitely understand the attraction.

Flowers and Decor

Lisa Ellwood took care of all things floral. Her brief was ‘autumnal and bohemian.’ Lisa aced it. What a gorgeous flower arch!
