Highcliffe Castle wedding photography, Byron and Katie
Katie and Byron had their civil wedding ceremony at the spectacular Highcliffe Castle overlooking Christchurch Bay and the Isle of Wight.
It is a magnificent wedding venue and it sits on a 14 acre parkland surrounded by landscaped gardens with stunning coastal views. To our disappointment, it was pouring with rain all day so we were unable to access glorious sandy beach and to explore beautiful grounds of the castle.
I have known Byron couple of years now since my friends have introduced me to him. I also photographed two weddings of his friends in the past.
Since I met Byron, he has met his wife to be Katie and now have a gorgeous daughter Zaira together. Another baby is on the way and both parents are excited about it.
There were over 150 guests present, some of them have travelled a long distance to be part of their beautiful wedding.
The celebration continued at the stylish ‘East Close’ hotel where an atmosphere was great. Katie and Byron were thrilled to see their family and friends witness their marriage and were happy chatting to them at the venue.
Katie and Byron, you have a great family and most dedicated friends who were with you on your special day. I hope you enjoyed every minute of your wedding. I wish you to treasure these memories for the rest of your lives!

The stunning wedding cake was made of cupcakes and included cupcakes for children too. There were many other sweet treats available for children too.
The first dance was performed with an elegance and romance. Soon after it turned into ‘Dirty Dancing’ electric scene. Byron and Katie have trained hard to be in the best shape and vowed the guests with their immaculate performance together with the support from groomsmen and the bridal party. What a great job!
