Katrina & Wayne’s Portrait Shoot on Bournemouth Beach

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.

Katie and Andrew’s Wedding Farewell and Rock The Frock

The final instalment of Katie and Andrew’s 4-day wedding is here.

Following on from their UK Wedding, Wedding Rehearsal Dinner, and ceremony in France at Chateau Talaud, the weekend ended with a final farewell to all their guests and a Rock The Frock shoot in the iconic lavender fields of Abbaye de Senanque and Gordes.

The day after their wedding we headed back to Chateau Talaud where guests had gathered again for a relaxed day playing games, taking a dip in the pool and eating good food.

In the afternoon, Katie and Andrew were due to head off for their honeymoon starting in Gordes. This gave everyone the chance to give them a good, old-fashioned send off complete with tin cans and a wave from the Chateau’s balcony. Not something you see very often much anymore, which is a shame as it’s a lovely tradition.

We followed them from the Chateau to join them in the first hour or so of their honeymoon. We were chauffered about by Katie’s Dad who did an excellent job of navigating the roads. Before heading over to Gordes where Katie and Andrew were staying we stopped off at Abbaye de Senanque. They’d sought special permission for us to shoot among the lavender.… Read Full Post

Leigh and Doug’s Rock the Frock Shoot

At the start of this month we had an enquiry from Leigh and Doug asking whether it would be possible to arrange a post-wedding portrait shoot somewhere near to Bournemouth. Their wedding took place in Yorkshire last year and although we weren’t on their radar for that event, they got in touch after wanting some shots to put up in their home, taken where they both went to University.

We knew we’d have to work quite fast if we wanted to fit this in before the winter set in and it would be too cold venture out in a strapless bridal gown. So, after a couple of phone calls we arranged to meet up for the first time on the morning of the shoot. Leigh had sorted it for her hair to be made-up by a friend and after an introductory coffee and a quick change we bundled them into our car and set off for our afternoon adventure.

Poor Leigh and Doug must have thought we were absolutely mad when we suggested we take the Noddy Train (or as Leigh calls it, the “Wally Trolley”) down to the beach. I have to say, I did start questioning our own sanity when we piled into the mini children’s carriage, complete with mini chain to stop us from falling out.… Read Full Post
