Beautiful Bournemouth beach wedding


The beautiful Bournemouth beach wedding of Helen and Bradley

Catching up on my Blogging, it’s lovely to look back at last year’s weddings. Grey and miserable outside as I write, but this brings back such sunny memories. The beautiful Bournemouth beach wedding of Helen and Bradley.

“An amazing photographer who captured our beach wedding perfectly. Thanks so much Ian”- Helen and Bradley

I was delighted when Helen and Bradley asked me to photograph their special day with Melanie and her team at Beach Weddings Bournemouth. It’s one of my favourite wedding venues and I’m delighted to be a recommended photographer.

The marquee looked stunning in the July sunshine, the waves lapping gently onto the shore – the perfect soundtrack for such a special day.

Inside, striped bunting was draped across the marquee with gorgeous beach themed pew-ends. The styling was done by Louise and Rachel at Coastal Creatives and as usual they did a great job. Photos from the parents’ wedding days were a lovely touch, greeting the guests when they arrived.

Outside, the couple’s love of all things to do with the beach included a great idea. The seating plan laid out of a surfboard! Pink flags lined the walkway from the promenade, fluttering in the light breeze. The sea was a gorgeous Azure Blue, with small white clouds skipping across the sky.

Pink was definitely the key colour of the day. Bradley and his Best Man in pink ties and buttonholes. Beautiful pink and cream roses in Helen’s bouquet from Emma at Arcade Flowers. Cute pink buckets for the Flower Girls to sprinkle rose petals as they walked down the aisle.

Family, friends, and sand. Great food and drink from Matt and his team from Fish Face. Beautiful wedding cake cones from Lisa Notley. A steel band by Gary and Steelasophical. A huge bouncy castle on the beach. Lots of emotions, both tears and laughter.


Most important of all – a really lovely couple!

Thanks so much, Helen and Bradley for letting me be a part of your special day 🙂 xx
