Our good friends Robert and Grace invited myself and Nick to photograph their wedding day on the beautiful island of Sark in the Channel Islands, back in October 2014. It was after this that myself and Nick formed Woven, and here we are!
We spent 2 nights on the island, spending the first day getting familiar with the venue, and meeting with Rob and Grace to get the full schedule for their big day. The evening was spent making sure the Reception venue was all set up.
Sark was absolutely beautiful, and all the locals were super friendly and willing to help myself and Nick find our way around the small island.
THE WEDDING DAY
Getting the day off to an early start, Nick went to capture Rob and his groomsmen getting ready and making their way to the church, while I went to take pictures of Grace and her bridesmaids doing their make-up and finishing touches, take pictures of the rings, and Grace making her way to the Church with her father.
After the ceremony, Nick and I went with Rob and Grace to their favourite spot on the island to get a couple of pictures of the newlyweds, riding in an ornate horse-drawn carriage.
The reception venue was beautiful, a large marquee set up in a clearing within a foresty estate garden. Rob and Grace had made many of the decorations themselves to a 1920's theme, transforming the marquee into a lovely venue, with warm blue fairy lights, chandeliers, a sweets bar and a drinks bar.
Wonderful food and a lively night of dancing and cheer ensued.
Our best wishes go out to Rob and Grace for the future, as well as our thanks for sharing your special day with us!
