Becky & Sam’s Wedding Prep Shoot at Durdle Door

We met up with Becky and Sam at the weekend to talk through their wedding plans and have a scout around their venues.

They’re getting married soon at Lady St Mary Church in Wareham and afterwards having their reception on the grounds of Wareham Rugby Club.

Having travelled down from London, Becky and Sam wanted a few shots for their prep shoot at Durdle Door and the adjacent Man of War Cove.

We have photographic evidence we have been here plenty of times before, but there must be some kind of psychological reason why I never remember just how many steps there are to get down to the beach here – it’s hard work, especially when carrying camera kit. But always worth it.

Elsewhere, everyone was enjoying a sedate and summery evening, but the coastline around here is always up for a bit of drama and it was a bit of a blustery affair. Thankfully, the intense thunderstorms predicted held off long enough to have a good wander together.

Matt and Bethan’s Wedding at Lulworth Castle

Matt and Bethan held their wedding day at Lulworth Castle recently with their family and friends.

It was a day packed full of colour. The bridal party dressed in bright pink, navy and turquoise with flowers to match. And to polish things off the wedding breakfast room was adorned with extra colourful details, bright tablecloths and a blooming amazing cake.

Morning preparations started a short drive away in West Lulworth as Matt and Bethan had holiday cottages rented for the weekend, then the rest of the day was spent at at the Castle.

Their wedding had a wine theme. The seating plan came in the form of a wine rack and each table had its own different bottle of wine, collected by them on their travels. Matt gave a great intro to some of these different boozes during his speech. It was a wonderful idea and lovely to give each table something unique.

Matt and Bethan’s Wedding Prep Shoot in Lulworth Cove

Matt and Bethan are getting married soon with both their ceremony and wedding reception taking place at Lulworth Castle.

They’re going to be making a weekend of it with guests travelling down to Dorset to spend time in West Lulworth and Lulworth Cove.

We met up with them on a bright and breezy Sunday to talk through their wedding timings and go on a little wander around the Cove. There was a crazy high tide meaning we were quite stuck in the cove but we managed to manoeuvre our way around without getting swept away.

Anthea and Graham’s Wedding at Lulworth Castle

Anthea and Graham got married last week in the pretty little Chapel within the grounds of Lulworth Castle, followed by a reception and party inside the castle itself.

In the morning, Anthea and her bridesmaids got ready at the lovely Limestone Hotel, whilst Graham prepped for the morning in the nearby Weld Arms.

The wedding was packed full of classic and pretty details but most importantly it was a day focussed on celebrating with family and friends. The speeches were heartwarming, there were lots of thoughtful touches throughout the day and it was obvious everyone had a fantastic time and enjoyed spending the day together.

We woke up to rain hammering down on our roof. The report for the day wasn’t looking good at all – it often poured it down but every time we wanted to go outside it cleared up – just like magic!

As well as the ace and professional team at Lulworth Castle, special mention should go to the Blunter Brothers for providing fantastic entertainment. They really were top notch and we enjoyed listening to some less obvious wedding tunes. They inspired many a dance-off and at one point we got trapped inside a Conga circle.… Read Full Post

Anthea and Graham’s Wedding Prep Shoot at Lulworth Cove

We met up with Anthea and Graham in Lulworth at the weekend as they were in the area prepping for their wedding next month at Lulworth Castle. More specifically, they’re getting married at the very unique and very pretty Chapel within the Castle grounds.

After familiarising ourselves with the church and all hopping over to the Weld Arms for first Shandy of the season we headed down to the Cove for photos, just in time for all the tourists to go home. It was a lovely evening in one of the most beautiful spots in Dorset.
