Not quite a destination wedding but I did have to catch a boat to get there. Hollie and Keith got married on the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey, in the very lovely Le Grande Mare Hotel (http://lagrandemare.com). I eventually arrived in Guernsey (after having my ferry cancelled the day before I was due to travel) a couple of days before Hollie and Keith’s wedding day to settle in a have a proper look around. The last time I was on the island was when I was about 10 years old, so I cant really remember too much about the place but I have to say Guernsey is such a beautiful and tranquil place and I look forward to getting back there soon!
One of the most stunning views on Guernsey is Vazon Bay situated on the west coast, which is where Hollie and Keith wedding took place at The Le Grande Mare Hotel. And on the day the weather was stunning! With a beautiful sunset over Vazon Bay making for some ideal bride and groom photographs!!
Their day begun at the Guernsey Greffe in St Peter Port, where the legal ceremony took place at 9:30. A very short ceremony (probably less than 10mins) - you simply just get married.
Back to the west coast and the bridal preparations took place in a family home. A lovely and relaxed prep for the wedding day.
A short drive to the Le Grande Mare, to meet with Keith and wait for the arrival of the bride in the wedding car which was a friends vintage car (I cant remember what it was)! Taking advantage of the beautiful weather the actual wedding ceremony took place outside in the grounds.
After the ceremony drinks and ice cream flowed, with a few formal group photos and bride and groom photographs in the grounds of the Le Grande Mare before moving inside for the wedding breakfast and speeches and the evening. Taking a short interlude to take advantage of capturing some stunning photographs of the Bride and Groom with the sunset on Vazon Bay!!!
Below are a few of my favourite photographs from Hollie and Keith’s wedding day! Thank you, Dale.
