Over 100 couples took part in free Robson Square weddings (PHOTOS)


Love was in the air, and in Robson Square this weekend as 144 couples took advantage of the free wedding ceremonies at the annual pop-up Love in the Square marriage event.

On what turned out to be a beautiful spring-like Sunday, the couples (who had already obtained their marriage licences prior to the event) showed up and queued up for their chance to have a free, public marriage ceremony in downtown Vancouver.

Seven officiants were set up at stations in the square, each with their own photographer to capture the special moments.

Donations were accepted, with 100% of the proceeds going to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank.

Check out a few of the photos of the very happy day, and congrats to 144 of Vancouver’s newest newlyweds!
