BENJAMIN Ashcroft, who proposed at the top of the Statue of Liberty, married Natalie Kennett in a New York-themed wedding — complete with a yellow taxi cake, King Kong guestbook, Empire State Building post box and Cosmopolitan cocktails.
The bridegroom, a carpenter, is the son of Mr Stephen Ashcroft, of the Philippines, and Mrs Jane Giden, of Warwick Street, Ryde.
The bride, a legal secretary, is the daughter of Mr and Mrs Derek Kennett, of Clarence Road, Newport.
The bride wore a strapless ivory dress, in beaded lace, with a floor-length veil, and a diamante and pearl headdress.
She carried a tear-drop bouquet of gerbera, lisianthus, lily of the valley and gypsophila.
She was attended by Vikki Hemmings and Katherine Davies, who wore one-shoulder dresses in royal blue, with silver shoes and accessories.
Philip Hoar was the best man and Michael Kennett, bride’s brother, James Scully-Syer and Edward Simpkin were ushers.
The Rev Marcus Bagg officiated.
Following the ceremony at St Olave’s Church, Gatcombe, a reception was held at Landguard Manor, Shanklin.
The couple, of Royal Walk, Ryde, honeymooned in South Africa.
