Happy to Travel

A couple of weeks ago I went overseas to photograph a wedding!  Well OK.  It was Jersey so not quite foreign, but I got there on a plane!

It was an absolutely lovely day!  Or more like week...  The bride and groom had kindly agreed to pay for my flights and it just so happened that flights were cheaper on a Wednesday.  The wedding was on the Saturday so it made sense to make a bit of a holiday of it!

It gave me the chance to give them the service they deserved as well.  Getting there early meant I could see them to discuss details and timings and also visit the venue to familiarise myself with it before the day itself.

The day was fab!  The weather couldn't have been better.  Glorious sunshine and little whispy clouds.  I arrived at the Bride's house at 11am to find the girls sitting outside in the sun while one of the bridesmaids had her makeup done in the conservatory!  I like their style...

When the girls were done it was time to get to the venue.  The venue was beautiful - La Mare Vineyard in St. Mary, Jersey.  With the sun still out it made for some great shots of the guests enjoying themselves.  The ceremony was in a marquee with excellent light.  So again, some cracking photos!

A bit more fun in the sun for the guests and I took the newlyweds off for some portrait style shots.  The colours of the sky, trees, grass, vines and the Bride's flowers looked stunning!

I stayed to photograph the speeches and they were kind enough to invite me to the evening reception as well.  So all in all a brilliant day!  Thanks, Luisa and Jason.
