Lovely and sweet destination wedding on Isle of Man
Isle of Man is a beautiful place to have your special destination wedding or elopement!
Alex and Matt’s pre-wedding shoot was at Maughold, where Alex grew up. I think you will agree that it’s a pretty spectacular place!
Alex and Matt from London decided to have their destination wedding in Maughold. Which is a little village that Alex grew up in. It’s a cute and lovely little hamlet of houses with a small church next to some dramatic cliffs!
The Maughold church was a minute or two walk away from where Alex was getting ready and a few minute walk away from the reception marquee. Whilst using wedding cars to go to different locations are fun in some weddings, there is something that can be said about walking! From getting ready venue to the church to photoshoot location and finally to the reception venue! It made the day so relaxing and easy-going, which perfectly suited the bride and groom.
As soon as I walked in Alex’s parents house, the incredible smell of Alex’s mom’s sweet peas greeted me. To me, nothing says summer like the sweet peas! Bridal parties gorgeously colourful dressing gowns and bride’s beautiful hair wreath, provided by Robinson’s, accentuated the summer vibe even more.
Once Alex had her stunning yet unpretentious wedding dress on, we went in the garden to take some photos. The rain started to drizzle down, but Alex didn’t let it worry her! And she was completely content to run around barefoot in the grass. In my opinion, barefoot is the best way to be, even on your wedding day!
Alex and Matt were very well prepared for the rain with lovely white umbrellas that the guests could borrow and use. They worked very well and after the ceremony, allowed me and the couple to walk around and take plenty of photos despite the rain becoming heavier.
While rain can be challenging on your wedding day, as most brides don’t want their dress getting wet and muddy, it can also be a lot of fun! It’s up to you to not let it worry you or stop you from making the most out of your day! Because you only get one wedding day (hopefully)! So make it the best wedding day for you, no matter the weather or any other hiccups that may arise. Because your wedding matters! And every moment that comprise your wedding day matters!
