A South Coast Pennsylvania Castle Wedding, Portland Wedding

Coastal weddingSarah and Dylan met whilst on a field trip on a deserted nature reserve island. Having been together for several years living in New Zealand Dylan asked Sarah to marry him – one of the most romantic engagement stories I have heard!

With their love of the beach, the outdoors and surfing they were planning a relaxed, beachy outdoor wedding, at The Penn in Portland.I met with Sarah and Dylan at their wedding venue back in April where we then explored the local beach for their engagement session.

Planning a UK wedding from New Zealand obviously would be challenging, but the wedding was perfect in so many ways, incorporating personal touches and beautiful coastal styling. If you love the idea of a coastal wedding you will LOVE this one!

Topped with their personal vows which had everyone including me and my second shooter in laughter, their day was very special shared win close friends and family in a truely stunning setting of the South Coast.

Here are a selection of my favourite images from the day.

The Penn
If you are planning a coastal wedding I would highly recommend The Penn, which is situated in Portland, Dorset. It’s a such beautiful venue with various places throughout the castle where you can get married – no matter what the weather. They even do Twilight ceremonies lit by candlelight! Talk about romantic!

Much love, Charlotte x
