Kelly & Matt had the first outdoor wedding of the year at Pennsylvania Castle since the venue has re-opened. The Penn, as the locals call it is set on the cliff tops of the Isle of Portland, with expansive views of the sea. A wonderful setting for Kelly & Matt's relaxed outdoor ceremony set within the castle gardens.
We captured the setting as Kelly and her Bridesmaids were getting ready inside. Guests made their way into the gardens, taking in the views and exploring the grounds as we all awaited a first glimpse of the Bridesmaids and Kelly, who made their entrance through the gardens. You could hear Kelly giggling before she appeared!
The grey clouds cleared as the couple said their vows to one another. I loved the expressions on Kelly's face throughout the ceremony, both her and Matt were extremely excited! Kelly & Matt had their reception in a marquee, which was set up in their friends back garden. I love garden weddings as they are so intimate and relaxed. The marquee was decorated with pink roses in glass domes & bird cages, buttons were sprinkled on the tables and seeds were placed for guests to take home. I especially liked the Cheese Cake, complete with pickles & chutney as a savory alternative to your usual wedding cake. We left the couple to enjoy the band in the evening and party into the small hours.
Kelly & Matt had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at Pennsylvania Castle in Portland near Weymouth. This was the first wedding of the year for the recently opened venue. It was a real honour to photograph Kelly & Matt's ceremony. Here is a preview of Kelly & Matt's wedding photographs, more will follow very shortly so watch this space!
Kelly & Matt are getting married at Pennsylvania Castle in Portland. We met up with them both to explore the Castle also know as Penn and to take a look around the grounds.
The view from the gardens is incredible and looks out to the sea and coastline of Portland. Kelly & Matt will be getting married outside in the gardens and so their ceremony will in beautiful surroundings.
We wondered around the gardens and then down the path which leads through woodland and to the coast; we passed St Andrews Church ruins where pirates grave stones lay! The Castle is a hidden gem of Portland and we can't wait to photograph there again in a few weeks time!
