Bournemouth Wedding – Daniel & Gina Get Married

This year has flown by for me and it has also been my busiest to date,

Another gorgeous wedding awaited and it was the turn of Daniel and Gina who were getting married at St Andrews Church in Kinson.

The weather was playing up but that did not stop us we had job to do. Rachel was off to meet the ladies and I headed to meet the men before the ceremony.

It would be my first wedding at St Andrews Church and I was excited to see how the renovations had progressed. After the prep shots and a few beers had been finished we all meet back up for the ceremony. a

The weather was still miserable however we pressed on and the most of the refurbished church which looked stunning. It had some of the best lighting I have seen in a church so we opted for family and group shots inside whilst it continued to poor it down.

We then headed over to Cobham sports club where a family friend had made the most stunning wedding reception for Gina & Daniel. Speeches, food and the celebrations continued I was determined to get outside for some lovely portraits.

The rain had finally stopped and we made the most of it. We all headed outside to the local wooded area for some portraits. It was so good to get them outside and let them have a little time as the new Mr & Mrs Scales.

Before long it was time to head back in for the first dance and a great way to end another stunning wedding.

Thank you to Rachel for 2nd shooting with me on the day, top job as always.

Below are a small selection of my photos from the day,

Corfe Castle Wedding – Jack & Hannah Get Married

Another Corfe Castle wedding and this time it was the turn of an old school friend Hannah.

We hadn’t seen each other since school so I was pleased that she had asked me to photograph her special day.

Since school Hannah had moved to London where she met Jack. They decided to get married back in Hannah’s home county of Dorset.

Dorset’s countryside makes a beautiful wedding day with some incredible landscapes.  Some of the guest who travelled from afar were most impressed.

It was clear blue skies and after a gorgeous ceremony we headed over to Kingston Courtyard for drinks and celebrations.

Below are a small selection of my photos from the day.

Corfe Castle Wedding – Rob & Kara Get Married

Today was Rob and Kara’s turn for their beautiful country themed wedding.

I love nothing more then a local countryside wedding. Being based in dorset I have so many beautiful backdrops for wedding photography.

The weather was playing up and with some light showers we had to make the best of it. I met with the lads at the pub opposite the church who were on fine form and ready for a good day ahead.

The church is in the heart of Dorset and overlooks the stunning Corfe Castle. Kara the bride arrived and we got underway with the church ceremony. After a gorgeous and well timed service we headed outside, the weather had cleared and we made the most of it with confetti and group images.

The celebrations took place at a local farm, Where the barn had been revamped for a stunning country themed party. We made plenty use of the surrounding areas to capture some portraits of the bride and groom before we headed inside to eat and toast the newly weds.

Below are a small selection of my photos from the day, if you are a friend or family of the bride and groom then you can view all the images here, (please just ask for the password ask the bride or groom)
