Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 31


Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 31

One of the joys of being a wedding photographer is that in the quieter times of the year I can look back at the amazing weddings I’ve been privileged to be a part of. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a grand affair or a more modest occasion – each wedding’s very special in its own right. Any wedding photographer that doesn’t enjoy weddings shouldn’t be shooting them – in order to get the best images you have to immerse yourself in the day. It’s no use being a spectator, even if you shoot in a photojournalistic way – you have to become a part of the event. That’s the key! It’s hard work, but it can be great fun – just look at this great image I’ve chosen for “Bournemouth wedding photographer – image of the week 31“.

This is from Danielle and Ben’s lovely wedding day with Beach Weddings Bournemouth last Spring. I started the day with Danielle and her Bridesmaids at another of Bournemouth’s wedding venues,  The Green House Hotel, shooting the Bridal prep. We had a beautiful sunny day, and Danielle looked stunning in her gorgeous dress with lace sleeves. Ben and his Best Man looked really dapper with their panama hats and shades as they chilled on the sand awaiting the arrival of the Bride and Bridesmaids! After the wedding and a relaxing time on the beach, it was back to West Beach for their evening reception …… but not until we’d made a diversion! In the holiday season there’s a carousel that sets up in Bournemouth at the Pier Approach. I suggested that Danielle and Ben might like to have a ride …… and they leapt at the chance! Several of the wedding party climbed aboard and off we went. I was hanging on to one of the poles as we went faster and faster, shooting one-handed. At one point I let go and almost flew off the carousel – now THAT would have been a great shot! 🙂

I love this particular image, because Danielle and Ben are really relaxed, having fun. Not self-conscious about having their photograph taken, just enjoying the ride. As an added bonus, we’ve got Mum in the background looking on, watching as the newlyweds as they start their life together!
