Robyn & Joshua’s Wedding Prep at Hengistbury Head

001-hhead_nov17_bb
Robyn and Josh are getting married in early 2018 and we’ll be joining them at Sopley Mill for one of our Short and Sweet days.

On a bit of a chilly November day we met up at Hengistbury Head for a chat about their wedding, a cup of tea and a walk down to the beach huts for some photos.

Although we’ve been down there quite a lot this year for shoots and walks I think this is the first time we’ve ventured down in the Autumn. It’s about a 20 minute walk down to the very end of the spit but that walk takes you through some lovely woodland. We stopped there on the way back for a couple of snaps among the fallen leaves.

We’re getting our winter woolies at the ready for Rachel and Matt’s wedding in the New Year.

They’re getting married at The Bell Inn near Lyndhurst in the New Forest on what we hope will be a crisp January day. It’s going to be a cosy and intimate midweek wedding and will be a lovely start to 2018 for us.

We met up at the Inn this weekend to have a nose at the pub that will be theirs for the day before heading over to Ornamental Drive near Rhinefield for a walk in the forest.

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.
