Lucy and Stu’s wedding at Beach Weddings Bournemouth, Dorset


I’m delighted to be able to share another of my Bournemouth Beach Weddings with you all!

Lucy and Stu are a wonderful couple and I was delighted last year when they asked if I’d photograph their wedding on Bournemouth’s golden sands.

As you might have guessed, their wedding took place at Beach Weddings Bournemouth and the weather smiled on us for most of the day, with only a very light shower but within a few minutes that had gone!

Lucy and her bridesmaids got ready at her flat and it was a really calm atmosphere when I arrived to shoot the Bridal prep. This is one of the most relaxed parts of my wedding day, because although the pressure’s on from the moment I start shooting, the girls are really excited and there’s usually a bottle (or two) of bubbly around to help calm the nerves! This equals some great photographs! Lucy’s dress looked stunning, and the bridal bouquet from Arcade Flowers was (as usual) gorgeous.

The wedding ceremony was full of laughter and joy, and really reflected the happy character of the couple. After the ceremony itself a drinks reception was held and canapes served to family and friends and everyone was having a great time – smiles everywhere I looked. I had no trouble persuading Lucy and Stu  to break away for a short time for some personal photographs on the beach!

To finish the day it was “all aboard” the Land Train for a journey along the promenade to Boscombe Pier and their reception at Urban Reef. There was a special request from the couple for some photographs on Boscombe Pier, as this is where Stu “popped the question” and proposed to Lucy (aahh). So, with the sun setting over the horizon we spent a little time both on and under the Pier, the two of them enjoying their special day in a very special place.

Thank you Lucy and Stu for allowing me to be a part of your special day – you’re a wonderful couple and I had a great time! xx

Anyway, here’s the bit you’ve been waiting for … a few sneak peeks from the day and a small slideshow of highlights from this great wedding ….
