Sopley Mill wedding – sneak peek

Sneak peeks of Anna and Dan’s Sopley Mill wedding

Just a few sneak peeks from yesterday’s beautiful wedding at Sopley Mill, with Anna and Dan. They’re a really lovely couple and we had brilliant weather. Such a relaxed atmosphere and loads of fun – croquet on the lawn, a barbecue, games for the children and a fantastic trio of glamorous singers. We even had a duck race (although one did make a bid for freedom ….. so if you see one bobbing about in Christchurch Bay you know where it came from! :)
Thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your special day Anna and Dan – it was brilliant!

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Summer Bride

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Summer Bride

Well it may be a bit early to call it Summer, but the weather over the past few days has certainly been giving us hope that it’s on the way! A bit of warmth, sunshine and blue skies – what more could a Bride ask for her wedding day? All of the months of planning coming together in that special day, with your true love by your side. That’s the inspiration for “Image of the week”, an image fr0m Danielle and Ben’s beautiful beach wedding, entitled “Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Summer Bride”.

So it doesn’t take much to work out where Danielle and Ben tied the knot, does it? Beach Weddings Bournemouth, a lovely Dorset wedding venue. Funnily enough, most of my Brides and Grooms aren’t actually from Dorset – a lot travel down to the area with their families and friends to enjoy this very special venue.

Danielle and Ben were certainly blessed with beautiful weather for their beach wedding! Ben and his Best Man really entered in the beach spirit, looking very smart in their panama hats. Danielle looked absolutely gorgeous in her wedding dress, the lacework was beautiful. As she walked down the aisle with her Father the tears started to flow, and we had an impromptu break whilst she wiped them away. They truly are a lovely couple. I love this shot because it focuses on Danielle, and is a beautiful portrait of her. Ben’s there, but the focus, quite literally, is on the star of the show …. the Bride!

I had a wonderful day with Danielle and Ben, and it was a real privilege to be a part of their special day.

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – love on the beach

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – love on the beach

It seems rather appropriate that, with tomorrow marking the opening of the third season for Beach Weddings Bournemouth, today’s selection for “Image of the week” features a beach wedding! This charming image is from Lucy and Stu’s lovely wedding day down on the sand, so welcome to “Beach Weddings Bournemouth – love on the beach“!

Lucy and Stu had a fantastic wedding day on the beach, and continued their celebration afterwards at Urban Reef, at Boscombe Pier. Now it’s not exactly a 5 minute stroll between wedding venue and evening reception, so they hired 2 of the so-called “Noddy trains” to transport the wedding party along the promenade, much to the joy of passing holidaymakers!

Now, the beach plays a very important part in Lucy and Stu’s lives – they love being down on the sand, so what better place to get married than at Beach Weddings Bournemouth? In fact, Stu actually proposed to Lucy “above ” the water …. at the end of Boscombe Pier to be precise, so later in the day we took some photographs at that exact spot …. aahh! :)

Anyway, back to this photograph …..

Weddings are wonderful occasions, full of joy and emotion. Lots of loving going on, family and friends helping to make this most special of days so memorable. But it’s also quite intimidating for some couples, being the centre of attention for a whole day. That’s why I take by couples off for a while, away from everyone, and allow them to be alone. This photograph was taken as Lucy and Stu walked back along the beach – spontaneous, not prompted …. a kiss between husband and wife. These are the moments to treasure.
