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,

Pig On The Family Portrait’s – June’s 80th Birthday

I was invited to a rather special birthday lunch at the stunning pig on the beach in Studland. I was there to photograph and document the celebrations. I was booked by the family of Jo who was turning 80 in the week. They had organised a lovely lunch with of course cake which I kindly declined still being on my 2016 health kick.

The lunch was served in a lovely little outhouse of the grounds which made a incredible setting for her birthday party. After the main course we explored the beautiful grounds of the hotel as it overlooks old harry rocks and bournemouth seafront. This made the perfect backdrop for family photos.

Below are a small selection from the day.

I would also like to personally say HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jo!

So its the turn of Ollie and Kate to get married,

A lovely local wedding that started off in the gorgeous Guild Hall in Poole on a sunny Tuesday. I really like this wedding venue as its situated in old town Poole which we walked through on the way to the Hotel du vin. It made for some stunning portraits on the old cobbles and brickwork. Although being a sunny day its was the end of December and rather chilly so it was not long before we all headed inside to warm up and get the celebrations underway.
