One of the great things about being located mid-island in Nanaimo, is that it makes so much of this beautiful land accessible to me for day trips and other spur of the moment adventures. Of the many destinations, one of my favourites is the surf town of Tofino, British Columbia.
Known for it’s endless beaches, brilliant sunsets and rugged west coast charm, Tofino is not only a great place to visit, but for many it’s a beautiful and memorable spot to tie the knot as well!
As a photographer, the landscape, soft light and small town quirkyness make it an exceptionally fun spot for wedding photography as well.
The town also hosts a number of fantastic shops and vendors to help you out with your big day. Need a great planner or rentals? Sheila of Rare Earth Weddings & Smashing Glasses Event Rentals is a great person to get in contact with.
Seeking out cute local bridesmaid or groomsman gifts? Caravan Beach Shop, run by Jen Thorpe (Shameless plug – She’s my sister) has some of the coolest gifts anywhere.
Suds to keep your guests lubricated during the revelry of your reception? Tofino’s very own brewery, Tofino Brewing Co. has you covered (Tip – Their seasonal Kelp Stout is one of the best dark beers out there).
