Katrina & Wayne’s Portrait Shoot on Bournemouth Beach

001-sbeachport_oct17_bb

Newlyweds Katrina and Wayne got in touch with us wanting some photos to celebrate their marriage to each other. They opted for a short Portrait Shoot on the beach in Bournemouth.

It was a bit of a blustery day with rain threatening the entire day. We had to cut our shoot in two halves to shelter in our cars from a heavy shower.

Our friends Amazing Face were on-hand that day for Katrina’s hair and make-up.

Josh & Emily’s Wedding in Swanage and Corfe Castle, Dorset

001-swancorfe_oct17_bb

If there was ever a wedding to epitomise what our Short & Sweet wedding days are perfect for it’s Emily & Josh’s.

They got married on an autumn day in Swanage with a small number of family and friends and we tagged along for a couple of hours.

Popping in to see Josh in his holiday cottage on the way we started coverage during the wedding ceremony at Holy Spirit & St Edward’s church before making way to Mortons House Hotel in Corfe Castle for their drinks reception.

Emily and Josh wrapped up their wedding day by tea-time and spent their evening enjoying some peace and quiet in their pretty little holiday cottage in the shadow of Corfe Castle.

After their meal we walked down together before we went home to take some photos on the platform of the Swanage Railway station. Sadly, the steam train had been cancelled for the day but this may have been a blessing in disguise as it meant there were no crowds and we had the freedom to wander and soak up the fabulous atmosphere.

Ali & Helen’s Wedding at Poole Guildhall & Shell Bay, Studland

001-shellb_sep17_bb

Helen and Ali had us along for one of our Short & Sweet days recently taking in their morning preps, wedding ceremony and drinks reception. The morning started off with bridal preps at the lovely Hotel Du Vin in Poole, where we worked alongside our friends Amazing Face.

Their ceremony took place at Poole Guildhall just a short drive away from the hotel. The morning had been lovely and sunny but as soon as Helen and her Bridesmaid’s opened the door to walk down the aisle to “Here Comes The Sun” the heavens opened and it absolutely poured it down.

It was so torrential entire wedding party had to squeeze in to the bottom floor of the open top bus to take the over the Sandbanks Ferry to Studland as the bus to the stairs acted as a waterfall. It took everyone really by surprise and hadn’t been forecast at all but was a fun and memorable moment.

Ali and Helen had a drier ride in Dorset Dub Hire’s VW Camper sipping champagne to Shell Bay Restaurant with a brief stop at Evening Hill along the way.

After a bit of drinks reception we then made our way over to the beach at Studland for a few photos of the newlyweds before leaving them to enjoy their food and the rest of their day overlooking Brownsea Island.

Chris & Emma’s Wedding at The Master Builders, Beaulieu

001-masterb_sep17_bb

Back to the New Forest we headed for Chris & Emma’s wedding at The Master Builders and for once this year there wasn’t a brolly in sight.

It was a beautiful, still and peaceful Summer’s day down by the Beaulieu River.

The morning started with Emma and her bridal party getting ready a short hop away at Bailey’s Hard with a cool Riverside Retreat cabin housing the bridesmaids. Meanwhile Chris and his Groomsmen got ready in one of the cottages at Buckler’s Hard.

Emma and Chris chose to have a ceremony inside the Master Builders with Celebrant Jacqueline Justice leading the proceedings and keeping everything laid-back and personal.

With a potent smelling home brew as their table favours lining stomachs the evening got off to a bang with plenty of dancing and spinning. The band were the exceptional Brando – a bunch of very talented musicians with an incredible full sound.

Josh & Emily’s Wedding Prep in Swanage

001-swanage_sep17_bb

It’s our last wedding of the season on Saturday and we’ll be heading over to the Purbecks to meet up with Emily and Josh.

They’re getting married at Holy Spirit & St Edward’s Church near Swanage seafront before heading over to Corfe Castle for a wedding reception at Mortons House Hotel. We’ll be joining them for one of our Short and Sweet days.

Making the most of their holiday week before their wedding we met up on a lovely evening for a walk near Swanage Pier and along the Prom.

Kirsten & Duncan’s Back Garden Wedding near Glastonbury, Somerset

046-mearesom_aug17_bb

Kirsten & Duncan’s Back Garden Wedding was a spectacularly thoughtful day, with so many beautiful DIY touches and a real festival feel. A paddock next to the Groom’s Mums house was cleared to play host to an impressive marquee. Being extra resourceful this grass was transformed into hay bales for guests to sit and enjoy the warm Summer’s Day under the shade of an apple tree.

The day started with Kirsten and her bridal party getting ready at their home in Somerton before heading towards Glastonbury for a wedding at St Mary’s and All Saint’s Church in Meare. The very church Kirsten’s Mum and Dad also got married in.

They definitely didn’t have the same vicar though as Kirsten and Duncan’s Wedding was his first!

After a spot of confetti guests then made the drive over to Low Ham near Langport to spend the rest of the day eating ice creams, playing ping pong, darts and dancing.

At one point in the day we headed off to a nearby Orchard which Kirsten and Duncan had asked permission for us to take some photos in.

The marquee was really something special – bright but cosy, helped along by good honest grub provided by Pieminister.

Ali & Helen’s Wedding Prep Shoot in Studland

001-shellstud_aug17_bb

We took an early evening adventure over on the Sandbanks Ferry to meet up with Helen and Ali who are getting married next month.

They’re having us along for the ride for one of our Short & Sweet days. We’ll be there from bridal preps at Hotel Du Vin in Poole before heading over to The Guildhall for their ceremony and reception at Shell Bay Restaurant and Bistro in Studland.

The evening shoot was lovely and we enjoyed some great light, wandering up and down the dunes. It was also great to see inside the restaurant for the first time – we’ve always wondered what it’s like there and the views are unbeatable.

Clem & Ben’s Wedding at St Nicholas Church & Harry Warren House, Studland

001-hwarren_aug17_bb

We can’t think of a wedding party better suited to deal with such a bonker’s British Summer’s day. We spent a large part of it (sometimes unsuccessfully) dodging heavy showers with thick black clouds. But no sooner had we resigned ourselves to snuggling in the marquee the sun would make an appearance and tempt everyone out for impromptu races and deckchair sitting again.

A spot of rain wasn’t going to hold back Clem and her bridal party walking from The Pig on the Beach where they stayed and got ready in the morning, through the little country lanes to St Nicholas where their ceremony took place.

Led by a fiddler procession the wedding party made their way to Harry Warren House for fun and frolics where their reception was held.

Making the most of the location the wedding had a seaside theme with carefully crated details and Clem’s hand-painted peep-through.

Later on, when the clouds cleared for good, we all made our way down to the beach to mess around by the water before heading back up for dancing and chips in the marquee.

Chris & Emma’s Wedding Prep in the New Forest

001-burley_jul17_bb

We’re heading back to The Master Builder’s next month to join Emma and Chris for their wedding day by the water-side.

They have some fun plans in place and we’ll be spending the entire day at Buckler’s Hard with them.

We met up for the first time last week in the New Forest to talk through their wedding timings and go on a wander for a little prep shoot.

As we had been to The Master Builders just a few weeks ago we decided to go for a walk in another pretty New Forest area.. revisiting where we had a quick stop-off shoot during Nicola & Ross’ wedding earlier in the year. The day had been a bit grotty but we figured this location would give us the best chance of getting a bit of sunlight!

Nicola & Martin’s Wedding at Highcliffe Castle

001-high_aug17_bb

Nicola and Martin’s Mid-Week Wedding took place in Christchurch, Dorset with a ceremony and reception at Highcliffe Castle.

First of all, both the bride and groom stayed over at the Lord Bute in Highcliffe with Nicola and her bridesmaids having the luxury of getting ready in their amazingly spacious Bridal Suite. Morning preps were taken care of by the expert hair and make-up styling of Laura Mackenzie and Tara Sanger.

We managed to get through a whole day without rain but it was a very blustery day – we almost got blown away on the beach and had to abandon our shoot down there for fear of ending up on the Isle of Wight, instead taking shelter around the castle grounds.

There were some pretty details throughout the day with the wedding taking on a bit of a literary theme. We were very impressed by the brilliant cake rustled up by Nicola’s Dad. Although I got a bit stressed playing the Wed-Libs game dotted around the tables… I realised I needed to swot up on my Verbs, Adjectives and Nouns. The shame.

Chris & Emily’s Wedding at Upton House and Sandbanks Hotel, Poole

001-uptsand_jul17_bb

We’ve had a bit of a wet and unseasonal peak Summer week of weddings. All of them have been by the seaside and have either been incredibly windy or very wet. Luckily for us though, we’ve been in the company of some great couples who haven’t been afraid to get out, arm themselves with umbrellas or entire cans of Elnette to make the most of their day.

Chris and Emily’s wedding set the trend. Their day was held in Poole with a ceremony at Upton House in Upton Country Park followed by a reception at The Sandbanks Hotel.

The day started with Emily getting ready at the hotel with the help of Amazing Face taking car of hair and make-up.

A little drive away the ceremony was held at Upton Country Park followed by a short drinks reception. We made use of the excellent scope of the house for photos before the rain set in for the day.

The wedding party travelled to the Sandbanks Hotel by bus (one of my old school buses no less – the distinctive Reg plate was a dead give-away and made me chuckle. To be honest, I’m surprised it’s still road-worthy the way we used to treat it back in the day!). Sadly, plans of drinks, games and ice creams on the beach had to be reigned in a little bit as it was just too darn wet to play outside. However, armed with some umbrellas we did manage to get the Bridal Party outside for some photos during a brief respite later on in the day.

The reception room looked wonderful, full of pretty and thoughtful decorations polished off with blooms by Jennifer Poynter Flowers.

Kirsty & Alun’s Wedding at St Nicholas Church & Harry Warren House, Studland

001-stnicharwar_jul17_bb
On a beautiful, sunny Saturday we boarded the ferry over to Studland to join Kirsty and Alun for their wedding. They’d travelled down from London to make the most of the unbeatable views and idyllic village life in our favourite Purbeck village.

As they’d hired a cottage for the week to enjoy a bit of downtime after the wedding Kirsty and her entourage got ready here helped by hair and make-up artist, Lorraine Milligan.

Meanwhile, after a meet-up at the Bankes Arms and The Pig on the Beach Alun and his Groomsmen made his way to St Nicholas Church for the ceremony. It’s one of our favourite churches for its friendly and accommodating approach and its convenient little hidden photographer nook in a priviledged position at the front.

Kirsty and Alun’s baby girl joined them for the ceremony and even got to enjoy the confetti run before spending a chilled day with her Nanny so her Mum and Dad could party! We hope she loves looking through these photos when she’s older so she can see the part she played in the day.

After a short walk from the church guests enjoyed the sunny views of Harry Warren House in its spectacular location overlooking Old Harry Rocks, Poole Bay, Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight.

The Wedding Breakfast and evening reception was held in a marquee next to the house where guests enjoyed food and speeches. It was a really busy day out on the water with a holiday atmosphere in the warm sunshine.

Just before the evening began we went for a little wander down to the shoreline before dancing began.

One detail we really loved from the day was Kirsty’s bridal party. Rather than opt for traditional bridesmaid styling each of the lady’s had their own bespoke hat made my Rosie Olivia Millinery which they can keep and wear again.
