On the beach – I love this image


Julie and Mark asked me along to photograph their ceremony with Beach Weddings Bournemouth. They’d originally planned to have a family member photograph their ceremony but decided a few weeks before the wedding that they’d prefer to have a professional photographer document their day.

It was such a warm, sunny day that Julie was determined to go into the sea. With the girls, and Mark in tow, they all waded into the surf. I don’t think the water was quite as warm as they’d expected! The shrieks and giggles rang out across the beach. It’s great to hear natural laughter at weddings. Laughter from the soul, real emotion.

That’s why I love this image. It’s not staged. Nothing’s posed. The reactions are natural. True emotion. Pure joy and fun. A great moment from their special day.
