Being asked to travel to Newport in Rhode Island was lovely, after already having shot two couples’ wedding photography out there, it was a pleasure to return. Nestled in a beautiful bay on the western most tip of Newport with its famous lighthouse, the Castle Hill Inn is such a beautiful venue, overlooking the east passage and the Atlantic, Ashley and her family were getting ready in a lovely suite inside the chalet in the grounds while the staff started to lay the tables and arrange the beautiful room for their reception.
Ashley and her family had fun getting ready for her day, being picked up by the Newport truck bus and being delivered to the church, Adam being picked up on the way with his best men and the feeling of the day was calm and loving from the start.
Their ceremony was lovingly heartfelt, their family congratulating them with hugs and smiles outside the church. Back at Castle Hill I took them to the Lighthouse for some sunset portraits, the cold air was harsh but neither of them flinched as we stood above the waves, the sun on them, chatting together, me working around them to capture the best of them.
The reception and family photographs were relaxed and warming, the guests enjoying the gorgeous sailcloth tent where they ate and drank fine food and wine, enjoying the vast array of desserts and dancing the night away with the newly wed happy couple.
Both of you, such a lovely team you are, what a treat to photograph your wedding. x
