Travelling to Marthas’ Vineyard felt a little surreal for me – always having heard about how lovely it was but nothing prepared me for how romantic and stunning the island is. What a perfect location to document tying the knot for KC and Steve.
The church that they decided to get married in was picture perfect, white wood boarded, was small enough to make the ceremony intimate but large enough to hold their two sets of family and friends who merged together as if one family before the wedding took place.
They decided to do a “first look” session before the wedding and being part of that lovely moment and photographing them together without anyone else around was so special for me, not many UK couples do this so it was definitely a moment I wont forget.
KC arriving at the church wearing her mothers wedding dress, driven by her father was a sight to be behold, so calm and relaxed, she arrived at the alter to greet a beaming Steve who, accompanied by his best man, was so clearly in love with his beautiful bride. The reception was held at her family ranch, the guests being given sunglasses as table place gifts, the band and singers close family and friends, the canapes, chowder and open cocktail bar a success.
It all made the photography so much easier for me from the portraits in the woods to the formals in the barn, all the locations you chose were amazing.
KC and Steve, you made people feel completely a ease and ready to celebrate your day. Thank you for choosing me to document your most important time on such a beautiful island. Much Love Cx
