I’d been looking forward to shooting Natalie and David’s wedding for some time, since they booked me a number of months ago to document their wedding. Their church celebrations took place in St Martins, a parish close to my heart, and then the celebrations were held at Cardington House in St Aubins. Cardington House is a fabulously chic venue which has the most amazing views across the bay and harbour of St Aubin’s and beyond to St Helier.
The preparations started at Cardington House. When I arrived Natalie was having her hair styled by my cousin (Paul at Philosophy Hair, St Helier), no less – it was great to work together… Natalie was incredibly calm and the atmosphere was lovely. I started by shooting some of the beautiful accessories and wedding gown which Natalie had chosen. Meanwhile in the grounds, David was dressing his beloved Land Rover, with the help of his ushers and father.
The weather was looking unsettled, we did get a small shower, but then it cleared up and it was beautifully sunny and warm….. after the ceremony we headed down to St Aubin’s bay for some shots. Natalie looked radiant and I loved the way the sun caught the sequins in her veil – beautiful!
The view from Cardington House is wonderful….
there are so many gorgeous features at the house, very chic and intimate…..
we all enjoyed the firework display from afar and from a fantastic vantage point – such a lovely mild evening…
