Dorset weddings by the sea


Had an absolutely amazing couple of days last week! Two fabulous weddings with a common theme … sand and love.

On Thursday it was Amanda and Hugh’s celebration at Beach Weddings Bournemouth. The on Friday it was Julia and Paul’s turn at The Sandbanks Hotel.

Two venues. Two couples. But linking them was the way in which each couple were SO much in love and were SO comfortable displaying it.

Both wanted to enjoy their day (and they did!). Both wanted their day to be informal and relaxed.

Neither wanted more than a couple of formal photos, preferring instead my documentary style of shooting, capturing the people, the fun and the emotions of their days. Neither want any sneak peeks, happy to wait until the editing’s complete to see their entire day. As Paul said when I left them on Friday evening – “We agreed that we want something to look forward to when the honeymoon’s over and we have to come home to normality – looking through your photos is that reason and we’re so excited to see them”.

It was a real privilege to be a part of your amazing days and I hope you enjoy your respective honeymoons .. you deserve it! 🙂 xx
