I’ve always said a wedding doesn’t have to be anything more than the two of you saying ‘I do’. Today’s feature celebrates the most romantic of weddings with Petra and Thomas on a quiet Jersey beach. I adore everything about their day: they’re both stunning; the bouquet is gorgeous – and our bride and groom just keep smiling the whole day long. Oh, and then they run into the sea together… and it just looks perfect!

Thomas and Petra hired lovely Sandy from Tern Events to help plan and style their day. Sandy was a huge help, sourcing suppliers she knows and trusts to create a perfectly memorable occasion for the bride and groom. Petra’s bouquet is divine – Clara from Wilde Thyme mixed soft, pretty colours and flowers which were mainly home grown on Jersey.

Sandy even arranged for Emma from Quints of Jersey to make up a lovely booklet and menu as a keepsake of the day – as it’s not always easy finding the right stationery for just the two of you to celebrate with!

How many of us, as little girls, dream of being a bride in a white dress and veil, and of being a ballerina on a stage? There’s a magic to both: a romance, a spirit of beautiful femininity – and it’s enchanting when both come together. Today’s styled shoot is from a wedding photographer whose other specialism is ballet photography. I hope you will love this as much as I do! The bouquet and dresses are sublime, just perfect for a romantic wedding day by the sea…

I specialise in dance and ballet photography and when not photographing ballerinas, my camera is focused on brides and wedding photography. I organised this styled bridal photoshoot to bring together a group of my friends, who are all running their own businesses and whose work I admire. I approached my favourite hotel in Jersey  – the Atlantic Hotel – and they were delighted to participate, so all was set and ready to go.
