St. Ambrose Church wedding, westbourne

Dorset wedding photography – the Bournemouth wedding of Rowena and Nathan

A while ago (actually it was the Saturday of the Diamond Jubilee weekend – whoops, my blogging’s fallen behind again!) I had the pleasure of photographing Rowena and Nathan’s beautiful St. Ambrose Church wedding in Westbourne, Bournemouth. The sun managed to shine on us (yes, a rarity this Summer I have to admit) and everyone had a great day. Rowena and Nathan run their own video company, so it was quite amusing to see the Groom setting up video cameras in the Church before whilst the guests were arriving! For the reception it was a quick hop across the border into Hampshire (luckily the  border guards were off-duty) to Gaddens, a lovely wedding venue just outside Ringwood on the edge of the New Forest.

Here’s just a small selection of images from their day …
