Banff Winter Wedding Inspiration at Sky Bistro

A team of Calgary and Banff wedding vendors came together to create winter wedding magic on top of Sulphur Mountain at Sky Bistro in Banff. It was an extremely cold day but the mountain wedding inspiration that resulted was phenomenal. Castaño Films had the pleasure of being a part of the creative team and capturing the details from the day in video. If you are looking for a unique Banff wedding venue with amazing mountain views and delicious eats, be sure to check out Sky Bistro! Watch the video below for all the winter wedding inspiration!

Canmore Winter Wedding Intimate Moments with the Bride + Groom

We love covering full day weddings with film because so many special moments are captured throughout the day. We want our clients to be able to relive these memories for years to come and share them with generations to come.

Georgina + Justin had an intimate moment together prior to their Banff wedding ceremony. The couple decided to have a first “no look” moment rather than a first look. The bride’s parents have a home in Canmore and so it took place in their back yard. The groom waited with his back facing the house and the maid of honour (Georgina’s sister Alice) + one of the bridesmaids helped the bride to walk backwards into the yard so she wouldn’t see Justin. The idea was that they would share some time together before the wedding but without seeing one another before the ceremony.

So, rather than seeing each other face to face, the couple stood back to back holding hands and sharing laughs prior to leaving separately for the church in Banff.

This was a really unique and beautiful wedding day moment that I’m so glad we were able to capture on video for them. Now they’ll be able to watch each other’s reactions and relive these few seconds now that the wedding day has come and gone.

View the short video clip below of their winter wedding "no look” in Canmore!

Canmore and Banff Romantic Winter Wedding

Justin + Georgina were married at St. George’s in the Pines Anglican church in beautiful Banff, Alberta in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The church bells began to ring as the newly weds exited hand in hand as Mr. and Mrs. after the ceremony, something that was perfectly British and a nod to the bride’s English heritage. Watch the film below until the end to hear the bells and see their grand exit!

The couple’s mountain wedding reception took place at Silvertip Resort in Canmore, Alberta where lots of laughs and great food was shared among family and friends. The pavilion at Silvertip Resort was transformed into an elegant, romantic, candlelit soiree by the team at Lynn Fletcher Weddings, who had less than 3 months to plan this wedding and did a phenomenal job which the family was so very appreciative of. The team at Flowers by Janie, worked closely with Georgina and her mum to create florals with an english garden feel and decorated the fireplace mantel, the arbour, head table and all the guest tables with fresh flowers in a palette of deep red, pinks and navy. The three tiered cake topped with a pair of gold glittered deer was designed by Kake by Darci in Canmore. The couple even had the surprise of watching video clips from family members in England that couldn’t make it to the wedding but wanted to wish the couple well on their wedding day.

As wedding videographers, our favourite part of the day was the getting ready/detail shots of both the bride and the groom (Georgina’s gown from Pearl + Dot was stunning btw)! Seeing the couple interact with their parents and wedding attendants prior to the busyness of the wedding ceremony + reception is also a favourite element to film. The first ‘No Look’ (separate blog about this coming soon!) was a first for me as I have shot ‘First looks’ before, but I loved this concept and it felt very intimate. There is so much emotion in the hours and minute leading up to the ceremony that we highly recommend having us there to capture these special moments. A shout out to the teams from Hedkandi Salon + Butter Beauty Parlour for doing an incredible job on the bride + bridesmaid’s hair + makeup!

The photo + film session between the ceremony and reception was another incredible part to the day. Calgary and Canmore wedding photographer Geoff Wilkings directed the session and had the perfect location in mind. We were able to work with Geoff and capture incredible mountain vistas and of course the beautiful bride and groom on film. We love filming weddings in Canmore and Banff because of the spectacular scenery and the breathtaking videos it allows us to create for the couple to watch for years to come.

It was an honour for us (Oscar + Mark) to be able to spend the day getting to know both Justin + Georgina and their family and friends and to film their special day. See the feature film below from their mountain wedding day and scroll further down to see the shortened 1 minute highlight video.
