The Norfolk Hotel Bournemouth wedding of Hannah and Gordon

I’m delighted to be a recommended photographer at the Norfolk Hotel in Bournemouth so you can imagine how happy I was when Hannah and Gordon asked me to be their wedding photographer! Centrally located on Bournemouth’s Richmond Hill, it’s one of the town’s leading hotels.

“Thank you for capturing our day! The photos are perfect, we couldn’t be happier with them. Thank you for sharing our day with us as well, behind and in front of the camera” – Hannah and Gordon

Their wedding day dawned bright and sunny. And hot – very hot. In fact, it was one of the hottest days of the Summer. Not the best day to be wearing a heavy woollen kilt, waistcoat and jacket. I was sweltering in the heat, so can only imagine what the guys were having to endure!

From the Groom’s attire you’ll guess there’s a strong Celtic connection, and you’d be right. In fact, Gordon wasn’t the only one in a kilt. So were the Fathers, the Best Man and the Ushers. For the Ushers this was something of a novelty, so you can guess there was a fair bit of banter flying around!

Hannah arrived in a absolutely stunning white Ford Mustang. It certainly turned everyone’s heads as it pulled up at the Hotel. Poor Gordon – he never even got to see it (let alone sit in it). He just heard it roar away, the V8 growling as it went up the hill.

Tears and laughter. Happiness and tenderness. All of these emotions and more in this very purple wedding.

Afterwards we made our way down to the beach for the evening. Whilst family and friends enjoyed themselves at Aruba, I stole Hannah and Gordon away for a short while. The sun was going down, the beach was emptying. Perfect for some romantic shots underneath the Pier. A chance to relax and reflect on the start of their new life together.
