Weddings at Sopley Mill

At the weekend I popped along to the BIC Wedding Show in Bournemouth. One of the exhibitors was Dorset Dub Hire, who I’ve worked with on many occasions. It’s always nice to have a chance to catch up with my favourite vendors – on the wedding day we’re all too busy to chat!

Anyway, Catherine and Jason were really busy at the show, with lots of enquiries and bookings. It was interesting to see on their Facebook page today that the most popular wedding venue is – Sopley Mill.

I’m delighted to be a recommended photographer for Sopley Mill and have photographed there on numerous occasions. You only have to take a look at it to realise why it’s so popular. Exclusive use. Beautiful countryside setting. On the riverbank. A beautifully restored mill. What more could you want from your wedding venue?

Rewind – Mother and Daughter

As well as blogging about entire weddings, it’s also nice to look back through the archives. It’s amazing how quickly the years pass. Brides are now Mums. The heady excitement of the wedding day seems a distant memory. That is, until you look at the wedding photographs.

Here’s a photo from Stevie and Byron’s wedding in 2012. After their ceremony at Bournemouth Town Hall, the guests moved on to the reception at the Hotel Piccadilly. The Bride and Groom? Well, I nipped off with them down to the beach in a VW camper! Anyway, when we got back to the hotel Stevie’s Mum came up to her and  ……..

Intimate Beach Weddings Bournemouth ceremony

Clair and Paul’s intimate Beach Weddings Bournemouth ceremony in the Summer

One of the delights of being a wedding photographer is variety. Now, I know all weddings follow a basic format, but each is different. Each is unique, just like the people involved. Different characters. Different venues. Different times of the year. Different weather (oh yes!). Different sizes of weddings. There’s no “right” or “wrong” when it comes to the number of people involved.

I’ve shot a wedding with just the Bride and Groom. No-one else involved. In fact, I had to be a witness!

At the other end of the scale, I’ve shot a Hindu wedding. 400+ guests.

So you see, a wedding should be the size that you want. After all, it’s your day!

Clair and Paul decided that the perfect spot for their wedding would be Beach Weddings Bournemouth. With just a handful of family members this would definitely be an intimate Beach Weddings Bournemouth ceremony!

The day itself was delightful. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that this was one of the most relaxed weddings I’ve had the privilege to photograph. Thank you to Clair and Paul for allowing me to be a part of your special day :) xx
