“Would you photograph a wedding in Jersey?” Well I couldn’t say no, when Sara and Robert from Jersey got in touch with me a year before their wedding. I arrived in Jersey one day before the wedding to check the venues and have a chance to get to know the island a bit more. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I had to come back to Bristol for another wedding. Well hopefully I will be back in Jersey soon.
On the wedding day I met Sara and her lovely bridesmaids at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel in St. Helier. Then I went to meet Rob and his ushers for a few shots before the ceremony which took place at the Sacred Heart Church in St. Aubin.
The couple chose The Boat House for their venue reception,which was just across the street from the church – very handy indeed.
The weather was gorgeous the whole day. The guests were enjoying the drinks reception outside while listening to the live Jazz band, which added a special touch to the wedding. After a fantastic meal and the very emotional speeches I took Sara and Rob for some pictures on the beach. It was a great time for them to relax and spend some time together, just before the first dance.
“We had Martin for our wedding in Jersey, Channel Islands. In the run up to our wedding he gave us a free engagement shoot which was helpful to get used to being in front of the camera. On the day of the wedding he was punctual and flexible, and appeared genuinely excited and happy to be there on our day. He was extremely friendly and sociable with the wedding guests and our parents, making sure everyone felt as comfortable as possible for the photos. Our style of photos was very relaxed which was perfect for us – they really reflected the fun and enjoyment of our day! At the wedding he gave guests each a little picture from the engagement shoot telling them how to access online the pictures from the wedding. These went down really well. Martin ended up staying all day, and captured so many pictures that we didnt know he had even taken, he was so subtle! He also made sure he took photos of all the little details such as table centres, flowers and jewellery! I cannot recommend Martin highly enough, he was the best decision we made for our wedding as the photos are incredible and will always be such a fantastic memory of the day. The albums he produced for us are of great quality. He was a pleasure to work with throughout.” Sara & Rob
