Emma & RG picked one of the best days of the summer to get married at Shalfleet Church. The sun shone, there was a nice breeze to cool the guests and a superb marquee on the lawns of the family home, Ningwood Manor.
Emma & RG both work in London and all their friends made the trip to the Island. Emma's family traveled from all over the world, RG is an American and I think I can say that his family and friends were slightly bowled over by the beauty and history of both the church and the Manor house.
Well thats enough writing as I really am no good at it and lets see something that I am fairly good at........ The photo's :-)
The stunning gardens and croquet lawn.

Something different I bounced the flash into a wall mirror to create a nice shadow
With these veil shots I could not choose between the two so you get to see both.
I don't usually put any group shots in the blog but this one has something to it that just made me want to include it.
To the church.

Emma loves the wedding scene in 'Love Actually' so as a surprise family and friends re enacted the scene for her, when I was told in secret that it was going to happen I thought to myself that it would be hard to pull off.... well it was amazing!
Back to the Manor.
Tea on the lawn American style!

The night was spent having fun trying to learn Scottish Reel dancing, I have never seen so many people have so much fun on the dance floor.
