Christchurch Harbour Hotel wedding


A beautiful Mudeford wedding

Last Saturday I headed over to Mudeford for the Christchurch Harbour Hotel wedding of Laura and Phil.

Before I started the Bridal prep I took some shots around the hotel. As keen sailors, the couple were keen to have some photos of the harbour with water in it, and not just mud-banks! As you might have guessed from it’s name, the hotel’s on the shores of the harbour! So an earlier than usual start was in order to catch the tides.

Luckily it was a gorgeous morning, with blue skies and lots of sunshine. A light breeze ruffled the surface of the water in the harbour as I looked out towards Hengistbury Head from the hotel’s gardens. As I wasn’t scheduled to start shooting with the girls until 10:30 I took the opportunity to wander across to Mudeford Quay to get some alternative views of the hotel, plus a few shots of lobster pots and all things “fishing”!

The couple had obviously put a lot of thought into the theme for their wedding, which reflected their love of the sea. It was a day full of love and lots and lots of smiles and hugs. Lots of laughter too – especially at one of the Best Men’s speeches!

It was a pleasure to be a part of their special day. One that they’ll remember fondly as they start their new life together.
