I have photographed more weddings at Cecil Green Park House than any other venue in Vancouver but this was the first time photographing a lunch wedding. A little more on why Cecil Green is one of my favorite venues for wedding photos.
Vancouver has quite a few elegant weeding venues but none quite have the early century charm of this mansion. Set on the grounds of UBC, Cecil Green has a capacity of 200 but also allows for more intimate weddings such as Vicky and Colin’s. Ceremonies can be held in a couple locations but the expansive lawn is easily the most popular. The walk down the stair is as dramatic as they come and allow for guests (and the groom!) to get an incredible view of the bride as she makes her way down from the house. early evening ceremonies are ideal in terms of lighting but I have photographed wedding ceremonies at all points in the day and they have all been beautiful. The luxurious surrounding gardens make for tranquil setting. In the event of rain the covered balcony is a fantastic backup ceremony location that still allows for plenty of natural light. The views from this high up of the ocean and north shore mountains are also an added bonus.
A combination of the Langara and Yorkeen Room are most often used for receptions. While classic in nature, the entire space is a blank canvas and can be transformed however you wish. Vicky and colin chose to have the space draped in flowers and it looked incredible. Renting Cecil green for you wedding allows you access to all the rooms inside as well as the terrace and gardens. The Solarium adjacent to the Yorkeen room perfect for wedding photos regardless of the weather outside. My other favorite location for wedding portraits are the private and perfectly manicured gardens. When Vancouver gives us a sunset there are few better spots for wedding portraits than the upstairs balcony. The view of the ocean and mountains are incredible.
Thanks for stopping by!
