Aimee & James

This wedding took place under the richest blue skies that Guernsey can produce, and a blazing sun.  Luckily the ceremony and reception took place in a location perfectly suited to the occasion, in a hidden corner of the parish of St. Peter's.

There was quite a crowd in the cottage where Aimee got ready.  Baby Harry was a little star and never short of willing helpers.

 Another willing helper for Aimee's make-up.

 Aimee's dad, Peter, had his van all ready to drive Aimee a short distance up the road.  A very sweet vehicle for the bride.

 At the marquee James and his groomsmen finished off a few things then greeted the guests as they arrived for the ceremony.

 A great entrance!

 As they say, location, location, location!
 Caryn, from White Dove, conducted the humanist ceremony.  Everyone was in great humour, even if a bit hot!

 It's not often in Guernsey that umbrellas are needed for the sun...

 There was plenty of time for a relaxed drink as everyone gathered together before the food.

 The setting and marquee were quite beautiful, the hard work put into the preparations was well worthwhile.

 Dad's speech was particularly touching.

As the sun got lower in the sky we took advantage of some gorgeous light.
 After the first dance the dance floor was heaving, but some preferred to just sit outside and watch the sunset.

 I was waiting for just the right time to take a shot like this, when the artificial lighting had just the right glow against the remnants of the sunset.  What a stunning setting, and skilled photography too!

 With no moon I was keen to see if I could take a picture of the wedding venue and the stars.  Due to the glow of the midsummer sun I had to wait until midnight to get this, but hopefully you agree it was worth the wait.

What a beautiful day in so many ways.
