Lauren & James - The Bella Luce Hotel, Guernsey

Lauren & James had such a relaxed and friendly wedding.  The ceremony and reception were all held at the Bella Luce Hotel, on a gloriously sunny September afternoon.

Lauren's bridesmaids were probably the most enthusiastic bridesmaids I had come across, full of laughter all day long!

There was plenty of emotion when John saw his daughter fully ready, a beautifully touching moment.

Wow!  A wedding dress with pockets!!  Stunning to look at, and practical too!

James and his groomsmen got ready at The Bella Luce, just a walk downstairs and they were ready for the ceremony!

Michelle from White Dove conducted the sweet ceremony.  The string quartet added to the atmosphere with their lovely music.

After the ceremony the confetti aisle was great fun.  


After the family group shots we took a quick trip to Sausmarez Park for some pictures of the couple.  Lauren had grown up just across the road from the park so this was an appropriate place to visit.  While at the park Lauren & James had a little practice for their first dance!

Back at the Bella Luce the beautifully decorated marquee awaited the guests.

We were treated to some great speeches, Lauren's dad followed by both Lauren & James together!  

Then after the meal it was the turn of the bridesmaids and lastly the groomsmen!  The latter certainly had a hard act to follow after the bridemaids.

A very intricately decorated cake...

After the first dance everyone else joined in and the dance floor was packed.

Shakeout normally play in Surrey and this was their first visit to Guernsey.  They were very well received.

We took some beautiful photographs in the evening, I was especially pleased with this example incorporating the lights and bunting in the garden.
