A stunning Sunday for a beautiful wedding in Dorset. Its finally the big day for Alison and Martin and their woodland themed wedding at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel.

The day started meeting the bride who was having a few finishing touches on her hair and makeup,  It was then of to meet Martin (who wasn’t at the bar). Shortly after a few groom portraits it was time for the ceremony.

After the the I do’s we headed outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather and for some stunning portraits, whilst the guests where entertained by a magician and had the chance to handle some birds of prey.

It really is true time fly’s whens your having fun I love my job so much the day was just fantastic, before I knew it they were heading for the first dance which was rather entertaining due to a routine the happy couple had learned.

Mr and Mrs F Get Married

I grew up with Karmen – we are the same age and went to the same school and even lived on the same road as kids.  It was an honour that Karmen and Paul chose me to photograph their big day.

Knowing Karmen so well definitely influenced a lot of giggly shots and a fun packed morning with the girls whilst they got ready and listening A LOT to Gary Barlow (I think she is a fan). Someone you might recognise in some of the photos is my sister Catherine who was a bridesmaid and is also pretty much like a sister as they are that close.

After a fun filled morning I departed to meet Paul at the Days Hotel Bournemouth.  This was a lovely venue on the East Cliff overlooking the beach. It was stunning day and super hot which meant the wedding could be held outside in their beautiful garden area.

Karmen arrived soon after and the ceremony began with plenty more giggles by the excited young couple.  Afterwards we made use of the beautiful wedding car and headed to the beach for some portraits and downtime.

I find that wedding days go by very quickly and before you know it the speeches have commenced and it’s time to cut the cake and then get ready to party. Soon after covering the first dance and a few shots of the action on the dance floor it was time to let them continue to party with their friends and family and for me to head off.

My beautiful relaxed weddings start from as a little as £750 with lots of extras to add on.
