Surprise Elopement at William Simmons Park | Sooke Wedding Photography

Elopement Photography in Sooke, BC

There is no wedding more romantic than a surprise elopement in Sooke! My dear friends Sam and Josh have been together for many years. In October, they decided to elope with just a few family and friends. They live in Sooke and invited a small group of family “for dinner”.

In the week leading up to the wedding (yes, it was planned in just one week!) I had a blast working with Sam to hire the amazing officiant, Brenda Parkinson and to find the perfect wedding dress. There were definitely tons of tears watching her try on dresses! On the day of the wedding, I also did Sam’s hair and makeup. It was such a fun morning. Sam and Josh let everyone know they were getting married!

We chose the location for the surprise elopement at the last minute.

A big thanks goes out to Brenda for being such a flexible officiant! William Simmons Memorial Park is a beautiful spot with forest trails, an orchard, a covered picnic area, and docks on Poirier Lake. It was the perfect location for a surprise elopement. It’s a hidden gem just 5 minutes from Sooke’s downtown core! We sent the groom and family to the park about 10 minutes ahead of the bride. Her father walked her down the isle and lead her to the alter, which was in the beautiful orchard.

I love that even though it was raining, they were happy to have the surprise elopement under those pretty trees!It was a heartfelt ceremony. I think that’s what happens when you plan something last minute… there is no time to overthink! We all laughed and cried! The portraits we took after the ceremony are some of my favourites.

We had so much fun and they were filled with joy! The entire wedding was treated to an amazing meal at the Sooke Harbour House’s new Copper Room. The food there is incredible and the company was wonderful. I just love how smoothly the day went and how incredible it was to be a part of such a romantic wedding!
