Hatley Castle Wedding Victoria BC | Lisa & Bryan

August 15th 2015 was spectacular. It was the day Lisa & Bryan got married at the magical Hatley Castle. Home to Royal Roads University & the most spectacular gardens, this place is a dream!
The day began by doing makeup for Lisa before heading out to the castle to capture the surroundings and await the bride & grooms arrival. They planned a romantic first look in the Italian gardens before we spent a couple hours exploring the grounds capturing portraits. The ceremony took place in front of an incredible floral wall built for the celebrations, the castle in the background. It was a true fairytale wedding from start to finish. 

Hatley Castle can be used as a ceremony venue or for both your ceremony & reception. Whether you are a lover of the ocean, forest or mountains, Hatley Castle has almost all of it. With the ocean in the distance and forest + gardens surrounding the castle, that alone is more than enough for picturesque wedding images. But should you desire a mountaintop moment, you can do what Lisa & Bryan did & venture to Mount Doug. See for yourself below, it was beautiful :)

Those of you planning a Victoria BC wedding have endless options for venues. 
But for the wild hearts out there who know they want to be outdoors & immersed in the beauty that is Vancouver Island, Hatley Castle is a beautiful option. Especially for those with a bigger guest list and who appreciate amenities like plenty of parking and the convenience of not needing to leave the venue grounds, allowing more time to celebrate with your family & friends.

Enjoy the images!
