Your Wedding, Your Memories

Andrea & Kristian Saturday 25th May 2013

What a wonderful weekend for a wedding in Westward Ho! Andrea and Kristian from London brought their family and friends to the Pier House at Westward Ho! to celebrate their wedding on the Bank Holiday weekend; they all stayed in either apartments or caravans overlooking the stunning Bideford  bay across to Saunton and Lundy Island. The bride and her family have fond memories of many  holidays in the are and still visit as often as they can. I met Andrea at her apartment looking beautiful in her ivory wedding gown complete with full length veil, to photograph her and the close bridal party on the balcony overlooking the bay. The colour theme for the wedding was pink and white for the bride and her attendants and grey for the gents, even their pet dog had a specially handmade waistcoat, as he there was to take part in the day too. After the civil ceremony had taken place everyone gathered on the veranda as love pigeons were released into the sky, it was a lovely touch and something that I had never seen before. Group photographs were followed by a short walk to the nearby headland where I photographed Andrea and Kristian looking across the bay to Lundy Island in the distance. The wedding breakfast and evening party went on well into the night but that wasn’t the end of the photographs…

On the Sunday morning I met Andrea, Kristian and their children (plus dog) on the beach and we walked all the way down to the water’s edge for photos strolling alongside the incoming tide; it was something the couple had asked if they could do when booking their wedding and I said yes of course, I would love to do it for them. One special surprise for Andrea just before leaving at the end of the following week, a honeymoon in Rimini, Italy, that Kristian had booked without telling her, and they were going that night!

On returning from honeymoon Andrea and Kristian sent us this message…

“In the words of our first dance its looking like a beautiful day, we couldn’t have had a more perfect day, the sun came to see us and the sea could have been my something blue, the day was made even more special by all the friends and family that traveled so far to share our day, for that we want to say a big thank you. Andrea & Kris Fincham”
