Beach Weddings Bournemouth

Back to Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Cath and Nick’s special day

Now that I’ve got the revised website up and running I can continue catching up on blogging about last year’s weddings. Today it’s across to Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Cath and Nick’s special day on a gorgeous Summer’s day.

Beach Weddings Bournemouth really is a unique wedding venue. It’s the only place in the UK where you can actually get married on the beach & I’m delighted to have been a recommended photographer for the venue since it launched at the end of 2011.

Anyway, on to Cath and Nick’s special day!

When I arrived down on the beach the sun was shining, with fluffy white clouds skipping across the blue sky. The marquee looked stunning. Petals lining the aisle, starfish pew-ends and vintage bunting. Gorgeous flowers from Arcade Flowers decorating the arch.

Cath arrived with her Bridesmaid and her Father on the cliff-top, the sun reflecting off the sea below. It’s a great view across Poole Bay from the cliff-lift and it’s perfectly safe, believe me! Down on the beach Nick waited nervously, but there were smiles all around when Cath walked down the aisle.

As always at weddings, emotions were running high and there were a mixture of tears and laughter during the ceremony.

Then it was time to relax with family and friends. Oh, and small matter of the speeches of course!

Whilst everyone was enjoying themselves the Beach Weddings Bournemouth team and Coastal Creatives were preparing the marquee for the wedding breakfast.

And time for Cath and Nick to see their reception laid out and admire their very unusual wedding cake. Well, Nick IS a fireman! 🙂

Finally, some time away from everyone, alone together on the beach as the sun went down ….

It was a lovely day, filled with laughter and fun. Thank you Cath and Nick for letting me be a small part of this special day. xx


“Wow, what to say? Fabulous. Thank you so much, Ian for capturing our special day in such a fabulous way. Your photographs capture the joy and emotion perfectly. You were discrete, with photos taken throughout the ceremony and reception without us really noticing your presence. You were encouraging, prompting small changes in our positioning subtly to help get just the right shots. You were imaginative, with ideas for some super shots which, frankly, could appear on the front of a magazine! We were delighted to have you there, Ian, to share our special day, we are delighted with the end product and would absolutely recommend your services to anyone who is looking. (He’s very friendly too!)” Cath and Nick
