Welcome to our wedding website. We are soooooo excited you are coming!
We hope this website will help you to find your way here, make the most of your time in Vancouver, give you some ideas for memorable excursions and let you know what we have planned for the big day.
Having been in Vancouver for over 2 years now, we have been busy building up a list of our favourite places to visit, restaurants we love and particularly for James - coffee shops! Take a look at our Vancouver - “About Town” page to discover some of the places that make Vancouver home for us - we hope you will love them too.
We're aiming for a relaxed, informal wedding, a time to connect with you all and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together. Check out our Wedding - “Plan of Attack” page for all you need to know and of course, please remember to RSVP.
Im sure you can imagine how much time pulling this website together has taken us, but if you do have any questions, or helpful advice, or offers of support, then please get in touch via our "Contact Page", We have put a few FAQs up there, but I’m sure we’ve forgotten something.
We know its a long way to come and it isn't the cheapest holiday - but we know you will love Vancouver as much as we do and we can't wait to share our big day and this great city with you. We are so grateful you are coming and we’ll do everything we can to make your visit a trip of a lifetime.
For those of you who don't know, Lauren and I got engaged in March 2016 on a weekend in Portland OR. We went for a weekend away for Lauren's birthday and on the 2nd day I convinced her to go for a hike up to Multnomah Falls. On the hike we came across the perfect little spot where I produced the string bound book I had made with pictures of our adventures so far together and finally asking if I could have every adventure with her.. she said YES!
How We Met
We met at the age of about 10 at a local craft fair. Lauren was working on a stall with her Mum, and James had been dragged along by his Mum “just for 5 minutes.” It was love at first sight across a crowded room! Well.......almost, our Mums knew each other and as they chatted about the local craft scene, we talked about Thundercats and rollerblading.
About 11 years ago a chance encounter (a real sliding doors moment), saw us reconnect after going our separate ways as teenagers. We went for a coffee, a date/non-date and an afternoon wakeboarding, and from those days forward we’ve never looked back.
