Banff Wedding Photographer | Elopement at Moraine Lake
I’m delighted to share with you photos from Laura & Brad’s elopement at Moraine Lake (just near to Lake Louise, AB). It was lovely to connect with Laura in the weeks leading up to her and Brad’s elopement celebration (they were off to the West Coast after the elopement and I had many an excited suggestion of sights to see ‘back home’). With neither of them having ever been to Canada before, it was extra special to welcome them to the Rockies.
We arrived to Moraine Lake Lodge to meet the couple for the first time in person. Together with Marion, marriage commissioner extraordinaire, the five of us headed away from the popular ‘rock pile’, and down along the lakeshore trail as they wished to find a more private spot – Raf found the little beach area pictured and it was just perfect for an intimate elopement ceremony!
Raf and I had the honour to serve as witnesses; admittedly, I totally cried when taking in the beauty of their vows, their love, and the stunning setting.
We love working with Marion – her smile and her energy are so sincere, warm, and happy! Just look at her exuberant pronouncement of Laura & Brad being officially married:
No signing table needed here with the natural rock boulder ‘table’ that just happened to be on the perfect little marrying beach we found:
The four of us had such fun together with after-ceremony photos taken at different spots along the lake shore on the way back to the Lodge area – we were so incredibly lucky weather-wise with only a little rain sprinkling and some clouds that came and went quickly, and mostly, the sun shining throughout the two hours we spent together:
With the crowds dispersing for the evening, we saw our chance to walk up to the famous Moraine Lake ‘rock pile’ for more photos:
We feel so privileged to have been able to meet Laura & Brad and share in their celebration in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Wishing them an amazing rest of their time in Canada, and a life of creating new memories and experiencing many more adventures together!
UPDATE: We arrived home from Poland to a beautiful note of thanks and a stunning photobook of the Pilbara region of Australia sent to us from Laura & Brad. It was our sincere pleasure to have been able to share in their special elopement and do everything we could to ensure they had a fabulous time in the Canadian Rockies! xx
