Gemma & Christopher

Gemma & Christopher had a delightful wedding at St. Sampson's Church, followed by a reception at The Farmhouse.

There was quite a crowd getting ready at Gemma's parents' house, with six bridesmaids and two flower girls.

 Everyone was amazed how gorgeous Gemma looked.
 Gemma waved goodbye as the bridesmaids departed for the church.

 A bit of a breeze gave a few moments of drama with the veil.

 This was my first wedding with the new rector of St. Sampson's, Rev. Timothy Dack.  We were treated to a beautiful and emotional ceremony.

 Christopher and his family had travelled all the way from the United States, for a wedding in Guernsey's oldest parish church.
 St. Sampson's Church has a distinctive charm.

 The weather was lovely and encouraged people to enjoy the garden and terrace at the reception.  The dining room was laid out in a very effective way, with lots of pretty details.

 We were treated to some great speeches, with Gemma herself also speaking.

 With people enjoying the evening sunshine outside on the terrace, the first dance took place a little later than planned.
 Paradiso played some excellent music and this kept the dance floor busy.

 James, one of Gemma's brothers, normally plays bass with Paradiso, he guested when the band started their second set.

 Wishing Gemma & Christopher all the best with their life in the United States.
