This was our first Isle of Wight wedding and also the first time that either of us had visited the Isle of Wight ever! After a long journey down to the south coast, followed by a ferry trip from Portsmouth, we were finally greeted by the sight of the Isle of Wight’s tranquil rolling countryside.
Kathryn & Stuart are one of those down-to-earth and easy-going couples that we just knew we’d click with straight away. We loved every moment of working with them and the only downside was that we had to wait for about 18 months for their wedding to come around! When we first met up with Kathryn & Stuart, back in 2013, they explained to us their vision for their wedding day and the incredible venue they had found. With their backgrounds in architecture and interior design, it was no surprise that they had chosen such an impressive venue. Appuldurcome House is an 18th century baroque country house that was badly damaged in the Second World War, which has left parts of the building hollowed out with no roof. Despite the damage, the beauty of this building still shines through and made for a truly interesting and unique venue for their wedding.
The whole day was full of love and joy and the party was one of the best we’ve seen yet, with almost every guest staying on the dance-floor through until the early hours, dancing to the live band, The In-Laws. We also had the opportunity to work with the talented and artistic, London-based wedding photographer, Ben Moore.
