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.

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Father’s dance

Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Father’s dance

With the start of the third season for Beach Weddings Bournemouth looming (well, just a week away), it seems appropriate to post one of my favourite images from the first season down on the beach. There have so many wonderful weddings I’ve photographed with the team from Beach Weddings Bournemouth that’s it’s difficult to choose favourites, but this is one. It’s from Tiffany and George’s lovely wedding and it’s my chosen “image of the week” entitled “Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Father’s dance“.

Weddings are probably one of most complex events that photographers face on a regular basis. Sure, there are other shoots that are dangerous, or involve huge teams and expensive locations but there’s so much riding on a photographer’s shoulders at a wedding. First, it’s a one-off. I can’t say “hmmn, that didn’t work too well, let’s set up another shoot”! I have to get it right, every time, no second chance. Wedding photographers have to be able to shoot a variety of styles during the day – portraits, groups, fashion, landscape, product …. and there’s probably more I’ve forgotten! We deal with the weather, the venue, the people ….. and all of those can be challenging! But it’s great fun, and if someone says they don’t enjoy shooting weddings then they really shouldn’t be doing it – it’s not fair to take a client’s money if you’re not going to invest 100% of yourself into shooting their wedding day.

Wedding photography today is about capturing the day, the people, the details and, most importantly, the emotions. And emotions are certainly on display here, as Tiffany and her Father enjoy a dance after their wedding reception on the beach. This wasn’t a posed shot, and the dance wasn’t even scheduled – it was just an impromptu event. Family and friends were relaxing and enjoying themselves, the music was playing in the background. Then a particular track started up, and before we knew it, Father and Daughter were dancing. It was obvious from their expressions that they loved and cared for each other dearly, and the emotions were certainly on display.

It’s moments like this that stick in my mind from weddings – not the formals. Moments that mean a lot, no, that’s wrong – these moments mean everything!
