Jess and Steve got married at St Peter’s Chuch on Hayling Island, with the reception at the newly refurbished Langstone hotel. This is my home turf and I was looking forward to getting some photos with the lovely view across Langstone Harbour, where I remember hunting for crabs as a child. I wasn’t disapointed , it was a fantastic wedding with oodles of photographic opportunity. With a pretty country church, a cornfield begging to be rolled in (why do wedding dresses have to be white!), gorgeous views over Langstone harbour and a cracking sunset, and I got some amazing photos if I do say so myself.
The ceremony was very personal, conducted by Steve’s cousin Tony, with readings and prayers from other family members. After the service we slipped into the cornfield next to the church for some photos with the bride and groom before everyone headed off to the hotel for the reception. Langstone Hotel has recently been refurbished in a sleek modern style, and the Spinnaker suite has superb panoramic views. Everyone enjoyed the speeches and the happy couple did a great first dance, very strictly come dancing! As the band played and the sun set (more cool photos!), close friends and family snuck off to the back of the hotel to light and launch chinese lanterns into the darkening sky. It was a really nice moment before everyone went back to boogie some more.
Here’s a selection from the day, the full gallery is now open for friends and family at www.amywass.photoreflect.com and is password protected with the bride’s maiden name.
