Please use the contact form at the top of the page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am currently booking Vancouver and Cape Town weddings for this year and next.
As far as urban wedding venues in Vancouver go, it doesn’t get much better than Brix and Mortar Restaurant in Yaletown. Located on Homer Street in the heart of downtown, Brix is perfectly suited for intimate weddings. Nelson and Nashina both got ready for their wedding at their home before making their way to the restaurant for their intimate wedding ceremony. The inner courtyard is where all wedding ceremonies are held at Brix and its my favorite part of the venue. From the road it seems like many other restaurant wedding venues in Vancouver but once the curtains part you’re transported to a beautiful urban oasis. The brick lined walkway that leads into the courtyard is also one of my favorite places to take urban wedding photos in Vancouver. More on that soon. Following their ceremony and a quick cocktail, we headed out into Yaletown for a few more wedding photos with the bridal party. I often shoot in the mountains and forests surrounding Vancouver but Yaletown has quickly become my favorite place for urban wedding photos. The variety of backdrops makes for unique pictures (something I always try to give my clients) and the sun bounces off all the windows making for interesting light. The indoor wedding reception followed at Brix and Mortar. While the space can be difficult to shoot in due to the lack of natural light, recent renovations have definitely helped. The old red brick and black ceiling has been replaced with white and while is still produces moody wedding photos, its a lot easier for not only photographers but guests to see. Most of my clients book their wedding at Brix and Mortar because of the ceremony space and the quality of food. One of the bonuses of having your wedding at a restaurant in Vancouver is the catering being covered. Not only does this help with your wedding planning but you can count on the food being incredible! Part way through the reception I pulled Nelson and Nashina away for a few more wedding portraits in the courtyard. While I normally shoot exclusively with natural light, the dark courtyard allowed me to get creative with some off camera flash.
The level of service provided by the staff at Brix and Mortar is also some of the best in the city. Perhaps the best thing about Brix is the ability to have your wedding ceremony AND reception in one place. This means the cost of having your wedding at Brix and Mortrait isn’t as much as many other wedding venues.
