Welcome to West Coast Weddings and Events

My name is Suzanne and I’m your wedding planner and event coordinator for Tofino and Ucluelet, on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island.

Both Tofino and Ucluelet are spectacular destinations for hosting your wedding or event. The rugged west coast scenery creates a magnificent backdrop for your special occasion with immaculate beaches, clear blue ocean, rich green forests and colourful sunsets.

My company, West Coast Wedding and Events, has several years of experience helping to create wonderful memories for each couple or group that we work with. I personally oversee and plan each wedding for West Coast Weddings and Events. All the pictures and videos on my site are from weddings I have coordinated.

Elope on the Coast

Please call or email info@westcoastweddingsandevents.com for more information on our newly added West Coast Elopement feature – perfect for these socially distant times.

Let me help you say I Do,
Overlooking the most amazing view.
T’is not the year
to have your family near.
But from afar, we can share your moment,
By Live streaming the magic
Of your West Coast Elopement!
To say ” I Do”,
With a West Coast View.
Holding Ferns & Florals,
With a lovely Updo.
Add on the sound of the waves or a guitar or a Cello,
You can hold hands with your handsome fellow.
As a lovely officiant says the magical words you are longing to hear, we can hear your family silently cheer.
Tofino or Ucluelet look forward to being your Host, as you Elope in the forest or beaches of the rugged West Coast!


Savannah & Mike Wedding Coordinated by West Coast Weddings & Events | Photographer – Brandy Bloxom Photography

“Planning our second elopement – like so many people we had to postpone our wedding that was planned for earlier this year, due to the pandemic (a sentence I never thought Id write) but with the help of our amazing wedding planner we got to have our dream elopement this summer.

Suzanne was amazing from the first email, she was our planner, photographer, taxi, DJ and bartender. Always able to answer any of our questions and helped in anyway she could – from driving me to the beach we got married on, to taking some of our very favourite photos with our phones! I can’t say enough great things about Suzanne, she added love and excitement to our day and if you’re getting married in Tofino / Ucluelet she’s your person.

Because our wedding was intimate, everyone there (all 5 of us) played a big role in our day.  We had always planned to get married just the two of us, that’s why we feel so grateful that we found such amazing people to be part of our perfect day, we had so much fun! Thanks”
