Image of the week 10: Beach Weddings Bournemouth


A slight adjustment to the publishing schedule this week for “Image of the week” (normally it’s on a Friday morning) ……. a busy weekend ahead with weddings on Friday and Saturday, added to the fact that this image from last Saturday’s wedding’s so cute I just had to share it as a “sneak peek” for the couple! 🙂


Tessa and Charles held their wedding ceremony with Beach Weddings Bournemouth, and wanted a very relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately, the gorgeous weather we’ve been enjoying in recent weeks broke down, and it absolutely poured! Added to that the wind picked up, so not the most conducive weather for wedding photography. But hey, I’ve shot weddings in worse conditions, so that didn’t bother me!

As you can see, we had a very smart little ring-bearer for the ceremony, and he did his job admirably. True, he did get distracted at one stage and started making sandcastles in the aisle, but weddings are a bit boring for children, aren’t they?

Anyway, at the prescribed moment he offered up the Bride’s ring to the Groom, and waited patiently with the Groom’s ring on the cushion. I was shooting by the side of the Registrar, and noticed over the couple’s linked hands that he was holding up the second ring …..

I quickly crouched down and grabbed this shot, with the ring being held up ready for the couple!

I know I’ve said it before, but wedding photography’s all about observation and anticipation. True, you can’t grab every photo opportunity during the wedding day, but by watching what’s going on around the room you can get some great images.

Technical stuff ….

Camera – Nikon D700; Lens – 24-70 f2.8; ISO – 1600; Shutter speed – 1/160 sec; Aperture – f7.1
