Priory Bay is the most beautiful venue for a wedding – a country house beside the sea in Seaview on the Isle of Wight – and the weekend before Christmas I photographed Fiona and Nigel’s wedding there.

Foregoing the traditional bridesmaids and best man Fiona and Nigel had a surprise up their sleeves for their guests. As the Registrar asked for whoever was presenting the rings to step forwards, Nigel was presented with a falconry glove and in swooped the most beautiful owl bearing the rings – much to the shock of everyone else in the room who had no idea that the couple had planned this!

Fiona and Nigel made the most of their seasonal Priory Bay wedding by tying in the hotels Christmas decorations with their own colour scheme and theme which made for a lovely, warm and festive feel for their day. Partway through festivities the exquisite hotels team laid on a selection of locally sourced food and other delights for the guests to enjoy as we snuck off for some portraits. We made full use of the grand stone carved archway at the entrance before their day drew to a close with a sit down meal and dancing in the Priory Oyster restaurant.
