Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 30

There are so many different elements within the wedding day, and so many emotions as well. One of my favourite times is when the couple take their First Dance as husband and wife. Quite often it’ll be the first time that they’ve really spent time in each others’ arms since they actually got married. In front of family and friends they take to the dance floor. Sometimes it’s a smooch and a shuffle. Sometimes its something elaborate and rehearsed. But whatever the music, and whatever the dance, it’s personal to them. That’s why I’ve chosen one such image as “Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 30”.

This particular photograph is from the wedding of Felicia and Ray. They got married down on the sands at Beach Weddings Bournemouth and I was delighted when they asked if I’d cover their special day. Before the wedding we met up at Felicia’s parents’ home in Bournemouth and talked through the plans for the day. We also did an engagement shoot in the garden, and yes, it was a sunny day! 🙂

As usual with the beach weddings, the day went exactly to plan – just as I’d expect from Melanie and her team! Felicia and Ray had organised things to the last detail, and it really showed. Their guest list included quite a few children, and we all know how “challenging” children can sometimes be during a wedding, don’t we! Anyway, Felicia was determined that the adults should enjoy themselves as much as possible so she organised some Nannies to come down and look after the little ones. They had a great time, playing down on the sand, and no-one got lost! Felicia’s planning went so far as to hire a Punch and Judy show to keep the children involved, and everyone had a great time.

Anyway, after the celebrations on the beach we headed up to the Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel for their evening reception in Harry’s Bar. It wasn’t long before things got going, and time for the happy couple to take to the floor. What makes this image so special for me is the obvious love and tenderness between Felicia and Ray – you can almost feel it.
