Jenna & Ben, Landguard Manor Shanklin

I had the great pleasure of shooting Jenna & Bens wedding at St Saviours Church, Shanklin Isle of Wight.  Although it was a bitterly cold day and cloudy we had the great fortune of no rain at all so that was a bonus.

Jenna booked me after seeing my website and liking the fact that at a previous wedding where it had rained all day I had managed to give the bride Ashleigh a lot of beautiful images.   We did not meet up until the week before the wedding as Jenna & Ben live and work in Melbourne Australia so all the arrangements were made by email with Jenna and her mother.

On the wedding day I went to Jenna's mothers house to do all the getting ready shots and to give the MUA Lynsey-Marie Lamothe of Isle of Wight Beauty  a lot of cheek as I normally do when we work together, I find that having a bit of banter with the MUA's or hairdressers tends to relax the Bride and bridesmaids and this gives a much better atmosphere for the photo's.




Thats not a smudge on Jenna's face but Lynsey's dirty mirror!

Whilst all the bridesmaids are being sorted I then have fun with the dress and shoes ( I love taking the shoes images ) its always a challenge to try and find a good place to put the dress and bits.

wightphotography-69 Whilst I was amusing myself taking pictures of the brides morning my daughter Lucinda was with Ben at his fathers house getting some very nice images of them.

wightphotography-359 wightphotography-438 wightphotography-434 The beach..... even though it was bitter cold Jemma wanted her beach pictures, this is something that I try to get all my brides to have if we are close to a beach as the images are always some of the best from the day, I find the Bride & Groom relax and enjoy just being on their own for the 30min  or so it takes, these shots were done in 25 minutes including the car travel time...
