Caroline & Ben - St. Joseph's & The Farmhouse

Caroline & Ben used to work in Guernsey and thought our lovely island was well worth flying all the way from Australia to have their wedding here.  The majority of guests also travelled to the island, with a particularly strong contingent from Scotland.

 Caroline got ready with her bridesmaids and flower girls at an Aunt's house, it was quite a busy scene, but all were relaxed and importantly all on time.

 The two flower girls were absolutely delightful all day, in fact they probably take the award for the best behaved flower girls in all the weddings we have covered!

 Caroline's dress was beautiful, with some lovely details.

 Once the bridesmaids got into the right shoes, it was time to get to the church!

 Before the ceremony Canon Michael had a quiet moment with Ben at the doorway.  Ben seemed quite calm.

 The nearby roadworks and diversions caused a little confusion, the bride arrived just before the bridesmaids!

 So sweet and they did everything just perfectly.

 St. Joseph's is always a beautiful church to get married in.  Canon Michael conducted a very touching ceremony.

 Rain had been forecast during the day, but we seemed to avoid any rain throughout the whole day despite it looking likely at times.

 Petit Bot made a great place for some pictures on the way to the reception.

 Ben used to work at The Farmhouse, it says a lot that they came all the way from Australia to have their reception there.  The dining room was decorated to great effect.

 Caroline and her father gave the speeches, all very heartfelt.

During the evening the sun popped out from the clouds for just a brief moment, we took advantage of that opportunity to get some atmospheric images.

 The atmosphere was very friendly with all the guests interacting and enjoying themselves.

 After the first dance Caroline and her father had a dance together, this went down well with those watching.

 Yes, the flower girls were still going strong late into the night, still as excited and well behaved as before.

 There was plenty of activity on the dance floor.  After a while it was announced that there was going to be a Sound of Music sing along!  Apparently Caroline is an avid fan of the film.  Another nice moment from the day.

 The day closed off with a lovely last dance.

What a wonderful day, have a safe trip back home to Australia Caroline & Ben.
