The groom was VERY busy on this particular wedding day, what with moving the ceremony from outside to inside back to outside again! Luckily the rest of the day went swimmingly well – as is right for a beachside wedding. This colourful day in all colours of the sunset was expertly and touchingly photographed by Hannah at Ava Images.

Your favourite wedding story: The last minute weather change! A beautiful sunny morning that turned to pouring rain as I was ready to arrive – leaving poor Ben to make an inside / outside decision without the help of me! The staff had just moved all the chairs inside on his say so just for me to turn up and the sun come back out and at the last second we delayed the wedding to move the whole set up back outside! An added stress a groom doesn’t need on his wedding morning!
