We headed to my home town of Poole last week to an area I know well, the Quay. Here we shot the wedding of Laura and Lee at St James’ Church in Old Town. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky for the entire Saturday which made for quite a hot and bright day. Although there was a nice breeze coming from the Quay and lots of shady spots things heated up quite considerably when we moved onto the open space of Canford Magna Golf Course for the reception.
Laura didn’t want bridal preps so we were both there to meet Lee and his party before the ceremony.
Lee headed off with his groomsmen to the Custom House on the Quay for a couple of pre-wedding pints.
A random lady enjoying a coffee in the sun helped out Lee with his button hole. Little did she know she’d just put herself up to to about six more. I don’t think she knew what had hit her.
Lee’s Dad joined them for a pint too.
Thirsts quenched we all headed back to St James’ as time was getting on. Not only that but we’d all seen Laura arrive already in her Rolls Royce when we (including the Groom) were on the Quay! We weren’t late, the driver was just playing it safe in the Saturday traffic.
Introducing Laura who wore a beautiful, floating chiffon dress. St James’ has quite a long aisle but for maximum effect her dress came with a separate, longer train. Gorgeous.
There was another wedding at the Church soon after so we just had a bit of time to have a play around Old Town before making our way to the golf club.
Here, the guests enjoyed their Pimms in the blazing sunshine. Summer had arrived.
The balcony had a nice view of the course.
Because it was getting so sunny the meal kicked off soon after.
The speeches took place after the meal. Here, Laura’s Dad and new husband had their say
as well as Lee’s two Best Men.
Once the sun had gone down a little and we could venture outside without the risk of the girls getting frazzled we took some shots around the edges of the course. We were only allowed around some designated bits for fear of us disrupting play and having to dodge flying golf balls.
Laura and Lee had a routine worked out for their First Dance much to the delight of their guests.
Then, the evening started off with a singer.
Things had cooled down a lot on the terrace so the guests could enjoy their drinks in the breeze and enjoy the unspoilt views around them.
Congratulations to Laura and Lee x
