Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 15


After last week’s slight change of scheduling because of Danielle and Mike’s anniversary we’re back on track again! I’d hoped to have time to post something else in the interim, but I seem to be editing weddings all the time so those will have to wait. 🙁  Anyway, here’s this week’s submission for “Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 15“.

Back in April I had the pleasure of photographing Sara and Alan’s wedding at the Yenton Hotel in Bournemouth. I’ve known Sara for many years and photographed her a couple of years back when she was a Bridesmaid at Esther and Jon’s wedding at Highcliffe Castle. The day had started with a mix of sun and clouds, so we had our fingers crossed for the ceremony. A short while before the ceremony was due to begin we had a light shower, but this didn’t deter anyone (after all, we’re British!). Sara and Alan spoke to their families and everyone was agreed – they wanted the ceremony to continue outdoors!

To begin with we had beautiful sunshine, but around 10 minutes in it started to mizzle. The mizzle got harder and soon it was “proper” rain and I was getting wet! Stoical to the end, no-one moved, and one of the Ushers grabbed a couple of the garden parasols and passed them out to the guests. By this time, Lloyd (shooting video) and I were well and truly wet but we carried on like the Pros we are! 🙂 Just as the ceremony ended, the rain stopped and the sun came out to welcome the new Mr and Mrs Brown!

It just goes to prove that bad weather on your wedding day needn’t spoil things for you or your guests. If you accept that the British weather can throw anything at us (at any time of year) then you’ll certainly have a great day! 🙂


Even the rain can’t stop the British from enjoying an outdoor wedding! 🙂
