Last weekend was the date for Mark and Judy to tie the knot at Lisle Combe, St Lawrence nr Ventnor.

It was a lovely sunny day and Lisle Combe is perfect for a smaller wedding.  It is still a family home, which gives it a very friendly atmosphere, whilst having views to die for and access to a small beach for those special photographs.

Judy made a lovely entrance coming down the main staircase to meet Mark, and then walking up the aisle together to the Barbara Streisand version of ‘Evergreen’.  A special request for ‘The Watermill’ was played during the signing of the register.

This is normally played on Oboe, but fits really well on Soprano Saxophone too.

After the ceremony, came the photographs, and the lawns and house provided a beautiful backdrop for these.

The wedding breakfast was accompanied by background music, with me playing out on the veranda and the music drifting in through the open patio doors.

The evening entertainment was provide by an island band called the ‘Tea and Biscuit Boys’.  They are a skiffle band that are absolutely great to see and hear live.  I was lucky enough to be asked to join in for the first dance with them.

I would certainly recommend them for any event or going to see at a local festival if you can.

It was lovely to be asked to be part of Judy and Marks special day, as they, and loads of their friends and family came and had a chat with me and made me feel very welcome, with loads of positive comments about the music too.

Also a big thank you to Ruth and Robert Noyes who own Lisle Combe who also made me feel welcome in their home.

All in all, a lovely day was had by one and all.
