Not long after photographing Jo and Alex’s East Dene wedding I was fortunate enough to document the wonderful wedding of Amie and Ben. The East Dene mansion is such a flexible wedding venue and the couple put a whole host of personal touches in to their day making it extra special and a really great fun wedding to have the honour of being a part of.

Their ceremony took place in the house with daughter Maisy taking the important role as flower girl before guests headed out in to the mansions garden to get the party started! What ensued was a fun-filled afternoon of BBQ food, bouncy-castles, wedding photos on the rocks by the sea and dancing right in to the night. Amie even wore a hand-made dress which was especially designed so that she could run around freely in the afternoon and most importantly get on that bouncy castle.

Oh, and this awesome couple were well up for getting creative in the evening and throwing around sparks for their final light painting wedding photo! <3

Ventnor Botanic Gardens is a venue I’d been dying to photograph a wedding at so imagine my delight when I was asked to capture this amazing day! Ventnor Botanic Gardens (VBG) are famous for their exotic plants and amazing surrounding but are less well known as a wedding venue so I really wanted to make the most of this stunning backdrop for wedding photos.

Anne and Gareth’s ceremony took place in the Echium Terrace, a room full of light overlooking the Botanic Gardens courtyard, before the party moving outside and in to the New Zealand Gardens.  As guests mingled and enjoyed relaxed post wedding celebrations in the beautiful gardens the bride, groom and I set off on a mission to create some awesome photos.

So here’s to a sneak peek of Anne and Gareth’s Ventnor Botanic Garden wedding!

East Dene wedding with a seaside theme

Weddings at East Dene – a beautiful stone built mansion in Bonchurch (near Ventnor) on the Isle of Wight – are always special. And if you’ve ever been to Bonchurch you’ll know what I mean when I say there is a really magical feel about the place making it a perfect spot beside the sea […]

 

Weddings at East Dene – a beautiful stone built mansion in Bonchurch (near Ventnor) on the Isle of Wight – are always special. And if you’ve ever been to Bonchurch you’ll know what I mean when I say there is a really magical feel about the place making it a perfect spot beside the sea for a wedding.

Jo and Alex certainly thought so and earlier in the year they celebrated their wedding in style at East Dene incorporating a seaside theme complete with giant deck chairs (amongst loads of other stuff) for their special day!

The wedding had too much awesome for me to put in to words so I’ll let a few photos do the talking and do a full post later crammed full of details and awesomeness :
