Jenny and Duncan’s Civil Ceremony at Swanage Town Hall

Jenny and Duncan celebrated their marriage with a Humanist wedding on the cliff-top in Studland, overlooking the sea and an audience of guests and paddle boarders. Being utter spoil sports, the pernickety laws in this country don’t allow couples to get married anywhere that isn’t an approved, permanent and immovable structure.

Jenny and Duncan got around this by doing the legal bit with Registrars the day before, at Swanage Town Hall.

We were there to photograph the short ceremony in the company of Jenny and Duncan’s close family and friends.

We’ll be posting their big day at Studland Bay House soon…

Becky + Matt’s Wedding at Swanage Town Hall – Part One

Becky and Matt put together a blinding wedding last week in their home town of Swanage. It was a day packed full of character, fun and lots of lovely handmade details. Anyone who knows Becky will know what a skilled craftswoman she is – so this came as no surprise.

Things started in the morning at Becky and Matt’s new home, conveniently just a stone’s throw away from Swanage Town Hall. Here, she got ready with her four bridesmaids including Sara whose wedding we photographed exactly a year ago.

Becky and Matt caused quite a stir being driven to and from the Town Hall in the coolest bottle green Hillman Minx. And if a snazzy little retro car wasn’t enough to halt everyone on the streets of Swanage Town, their exit from the Registry Office certainly did. With the RNLI playing a big part in both Becky and Matt’s life, there was a guard of honour formed out of oars and a pair of giant knitting needles (a brilliant surprise from Matt as a nod to the Bride’s knitting prowess).

Here are some photos from their morning.
