Welcome to another real life wedding !
This week Lisa & Morgan have shared their beautiful Sanctuary Cove wedding day with us !
Tell us how you met
Our first meeting was in book shop, we were too shy to say anything to one another. Luckily, fate bought us together again a few hours later at a sushi train, it was true love at first sight.
While going for a morning walk on the beach one weekend away,
Morgan danced with me to one of our favourite songs and then got down on one knee to ask me to be his wife.
I haven’t stopped smiling since 🙂

Favourite Wedding Day moment
Bride – My favourite moment had to be at the chapel. I was so SO SOOO excited I just couldn’t wait to get to the front of the chapel to stand up next to my best friend!! Seeing Morgans smile and seeing all of our family and friends in the audience..
I could live that moment over and over again.
Groom – At the chapel. Watching Lisa walk down the isle was just perfect.
Special thanks to
Kristy, the brides best friend. MC and general everything. She made our day so special and easy.
What did you value most about using Ben Clark Photography ?
Ben was a perfect balance of confident, efficient and easygoing. He worked so hard on the day to get us the photos that we wanted.
He achieved a perfect combination of posed and candid photos and was very skilled at making everyone feel comfortable.
I especially love Bens photographic style. We booked Ben because we loved the personal style of his photos and because he was such a cool guy!
Ben would make a valuable addiction to any wedding.
