Welcome to the website of Dorset Wedding photographer ianH photography


I’m a wedding photographer in Bournemouth, creating beautiful wedding photography with couples not just in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas such as Poole, Wimborne and Christchurch but across Dorset, Hampshire and beyond. I’m delighted to be the recommended wedding photographer for the following Dorset wedding venues:

  • Beach Weddings Bournemouth
  • Hotel du Vin in Poole
  • Norfolk Royale Hotel in Bournemouth
  • Sopley Mill near Christchurch
  • English Oak Vineyard Weddings near Poole




There are so many different wedding photography terms such as “Reportage“, “Photo-Journalism“, “Documentary” and “Contemporary” all over the web these days, so how would I describe myself?

With many years’ experience of wedding photography not only in Bournemouth but across Dorset and Hampshire, I think the best words to describe my style are natural and relaxed. I truly believe that this special day should be captured quietly, sympathetically and unobtrusively, documenting the events as they unfold – wedding photo-journalism.

It’s my job to make sure that you enjoy your wedding day, without worrying about what you might miss. I’ll be your eyes for the entire day – all you need to do is to relax and savour every moment. I may guide you on occasion to make sure that you look your best, but the resulting images will reflect the emotions and feelings of the day, creating a record that you can share with your family in years to come. As a Dorset wedding photographer I’ve worked at many of the leading Dorset wedding venues across the years, in all sorts of conditions – that’s why you need an experienced, professional wedding photographer … someone who can deliver, no matter what happens on the day.

bournemouth-beach-wedding-photographerAt a wedding, you share with me probably the most precious and special day of your lives, and I never ever take for granted the responsibility you entrust to me. I’m not “just” a professional wedding photographer … I’m the story-teller who weaves all of the elements from your day and creates a magical record you’ll cherish.

I work to develop a relationship, to understand who you are and what’s important to you, and my aim is for you to regard me as a friend – someone who’ll work with you not only today, but hopefully in the years ahead as your family photographer documenting your family history for future generations. I care about my clients.


Over the years I’ve worked at many of the leading wedding venues in Bournemouth and across Dorset and Hampshire so I’ll help you, advising you of the best places to have your photographs taken on the day and guiding you on how to schedule your day.

As I’m a Bournemouth wedding photographer I’m delighted to be recommended by Beach Weddings Bournemouth and have worked closely with the team since they launched at the end of 2011. You can see some Beach Wedding slideshows here on my You Tube channel.
