It was a real pleasure to be the wedding photographer for this beautiful vintage wedding at Landguard Manor in the Isle of Wight, UK. Not only did it have lots of fabulous details, guests dressing the part and the wonderful setting of an 18th Century country manor house, but the rain cleared to deliver perfect English Summer sunshine.
The day started with preparations at the Manor House before I moved on to nearby Newport Methodist Church to photograph Kate’s arrival and the ceremony. Everyone then made their way back to Landguard Manor which had been transformed into a vintage village fete complete with a coconut shy, bunting and a ‘High Striker’ to test your strength. We had perfect light for some quick portraits and the judging of a ‘Bake Off’ where guests enter their home cooked cakes in a contest – something that’s growing in popularity in the UK. My coverage drew to a close after the wedding breakfast and first dance as the party continued into the night.
