Elopement Inspiration at Myra Falls | A Strathcona Park Wedding

For those who have yet to head north on Vancouver Island, it is so worth it! One of my favourite places is Strathcona Provincial Park. About an hour outside of Campbell River is lodges, mountains, lakes, remote adventure hiking, as well as some easy access waterfalls + exploring to be done. A bit off the beaten track is this place... Myra Falls.

Myself & a handful of wedding vendors made the 2.5 hour trek out to this set of waterfalls for one fabulous couple. It was such an incredible location to photograph love amongst, and I really hope to see more couples choosing to venture out this way for elopements + intimate weddings. Strathcona Park Lodge is available for accommodation as well as the celebrations if desired, or as you will see here, you could choose to situate yourself at the base of a stunning waterfall, the water flowing into Buttle Lake below, and it would be absolute perfection.

What do you dream of?

For Vancouver Island weddings, there truly are no limits. There are hundreds of unique venues to choose from, but my favourite for the wild hearts out there, are the endless ocean views, mountain vistas, crashing waterfalls, trickling rivers + colourful sunsets that await. Seeking a bit of an adventure for your vow exchange will always be the best option of all :)

Enjoy the images!
And of course, if you are planning a nature encompassed elopement or intimate wedding here on Vancouver Island or the gulf islands... be sure to reach out! I'm happy to help.

It makes me happy to be able to share what inspires me within my business so check it out! xoxo
