Rob & Russell | Vancouver Elopement Photographer | Queen Elizabeth Park

All images by Sachin Khona, Vancouver Elopement Photographer


Today was special.

After moving to Canada from the UK, to shoot my first wedding in Vancouver was great. Not only was it my first wedding here but also my first opportunity to document an elopement and also a same sex marriage.

It was a real honour to shoot Rob and Russell’s ceremony in front of their closest friends and family who flew from all over the world to be with them today at Queen Elizabeth Park

Rob and Russell waited 13 years to tie the knot and I’m so glad they chose Vancouver to have the ceremony in and for choosing me to capture their day. It means so much to me.

Queen Elizabeth Park provided a beautiful backdrop for what was an emotional ceremony, and the weather (forecast to rain for the last 5 or so days) did not let us down and provided gorgeous weather with the most amazing light.
