Danielle & Matthew - St. Matthew's Church & The Farmhouse

What a full day Danielle & Matt had for their wedding.   They were certainly rewarded with a thoroughly enjoyable wedding.

Despite an early start, everyone was ready in good time.

The back of Danielle's dress was especially stunning, needless to say it suited her perfectly.

It was surprisingly chilly outside the church, with misty conditions and a brisk breeze.

 Adele and Anai, the flower girls, were really sweet, and so well behaved all day long.

It was lovely to see Rev. John Luff in Guernsey specially to conduct this ceremony.  He has a long standing connection with the bride's family, I also knew him back in his farming days.

 It was a bit breezy to stop on the coast for pictures, so we went to Saumarez Park instead, where it was nice and sheltered.

 There was plenty of time for people to enjoy their champagne and have a laugh before the call in for the meal.

 Chris, the Master of Ceremonies, was excellent in this role and seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself.

 Danielle's dad was celebrating his birthday on his daughter's wedding day!  He made a grand entrance himself after the couple.

 Danielle's speech was a tough act for everyone else to follow, there was much amusement when she revealed her Auntie's advice at the end of her speech!

As the afternoon progressed, the cloud cleared and it became noticeably warmer.  We had some atmospheric light for some beautiful pictures.

 What stunning wedding rings, all designed and made by Emma, Danielle's sister.  A very personal touch.

 This wedding had everything weather wise, the promised thundery showers kept away until it got dark though.   We had a lovely sunset, then some thunder and lightning.

 We took this shot of some lightning, we waited a fair time for some more dramatic lightning, but even though it was all high in the clouds, it still gave us a dramatic image.  Of course I got soaked as I packed up after this image, worth it though!

 City Limits performed to their usual high standards, everyone kept the dance floor very active.  One of the highlights of the wedding was the bride's dance with her father.  It was high energy with Alan doing virtually everything except spinning on his head!
