“Our team was originally inspired by the fleeting pear blossoms on the property of Bilston Creek Farm, located in Metchosin, BC Canada. To us, the blossoms suggest a soft, romantic, and pretty aesthetic, which then dictated the rest of our florals and decor pieces. The particular tree featured with our sweetheart table is a Winter Nellis pear tree and is believed to be the oldest one in the country! These beautiful blossoms only last for about two weeks, so we had to plan our shoot timing carefully. Playing off the blossoms' pale pink and white tones, we wanted to bring some pops of French blue into the decor, always mindful of the overall romantic theme.
The ceremony site tree is a giant Arbutus tree also located on the farm property, which adds a touch of the west coast to our romantic theme. These trees are abundant on Vancouver Island and we wanted to connect the shoot to this special part of the world by featuring this massive example.
Bilston Creek Farm is also home to a 170-year-old apple tree orchard, as well as fields of lavender – a perfect wedding venue!”
