Matt and Marion had a wedding of two’s. Naturally there’s two people getting married; naval officer Matthew Rees and his beautiful bride, Sophrology practicioner, Marion Beauregard. But, as you may have guessed from her name, Marion is French, so there were also two nationalities present as Marion’s friends and family from across the Channel came over to Plymouth to celebrate.
To continue this theme of two’s there were two venues; the church seen above, perched on the cliffs overlooking the coastline hosted the ceremony and the Moorland Garden Hotel, in Dartmoor, was home to both the French Guests and the reception celebration.
Then there were two best men: Cynan Brace one of Matt’s oldest friends gave a heart-warming, emotional speech; and Dan Nightingale one of Matt’s closest friends – and rising star stand up comedian – gave a thorough roasting. And of course, the speeches of the Groom and Father of the Bride were done in two languages.
And all of this was captured by two amazing photographers! Myself and my good friend Chris of Pictures by Bish.
The weather was glorious, the church was beautiful, the surroundings picturesque and the grounds of the hotel were gorgeous. All in all it was a perfect day and everyone was full of smiles and gratitude. See below for a video slide show and some pictures from the day.
