I’m so excited to share Steph and Brandon’s summer Willow Lane Barn wedding. This wedding was so exciting for us for several reasons. Firstly, we got to shoot in a Canola field! We’ve been wanting to shoot in a canola field for so long but since canola only flowers for 2 weeks that makes it tricky. It is also tricky to shoot a wedding in a location that’s close enough to a canola field. These two factors combined can make our goal that is originally a tricky extremely tricky so safe to say we have been waiting for a long time!
I was so excited when I did my location scout that a flowering canola field was right next door. If you’re planning a wedding with a rustic barn styled venue, the willow lane barn is so fantastic! I would definitely recommend booking a wedding for the last two weekends in July if you want some canola fields. Ok, I’ll move on from the fields! If you’re after a willow lane barn wedding then you’re up for about an hours drive from Calgary, about 1.5 hours if you’re driving from the SE. You have the option of accommodation near by or organizing shuttles for your guests.
Brandon and Stephanie’s day was pretty much perfect. From a photography point of view Brandon and Steph were the ideal clients, so much fun to be with, the best friends and family to spend the day with etc, etc. They were also so amped for any ideas that we had and they really gave so much time for photography during the day. We were able to sneak out of the reception to capture some beautiful sunset shots. Then they were also keen when asked if we could pop out again for a night shot. Thanks so much for having us guys and we hope you enjoy some wedding inspiration for your barn wedding!
