Emma + Jordan's Winter Wedding - Milton Abbey, Blandford Forum, Dorset

Emma + Jordan both work at Milton Abbey School, so getting married at the Abbey in the school grounds was the perfect choice for their December wedding.

The weather started out all misty and grey, but in the end played fair and we were treated to a gorgeous golden hour!

This was a short commission as the bride's father, a keen photographer, wanted to cover most of the day, however, he would have struggled to document himself walking down the aisle with his daughter :)

It was an honour to photograph their ceremony at such an amazing and jaw dropping venue!

Congratulations to Emma and Jordan, wishing you all the best!!



Sarah + Ian's Wedding - Miramar Hotel, Bournemouth

First of all what a glorious day! Sarah and Ian could not have dreamt of better weather for their big occasion. Blue skies and fluffy clouds followed them where ever they went!

The Miramar Hotel on Bournemouth sea front set the scene for a beautiful garden ceremony, followed by celebrations and partying into the night. The happy-go-lucky couple and their friends were also able to have a giggle on the beach as well (sorry Ian and Sarah, who walked up and down the rather steep zig-zag path...twice!)

Thank you both for letting us share your fun-filled day, it was a pleasure, and we wish you so much happiness!

Anna + Danny's Wedding - All Saints Church, Southbourne & The Lord Bute Hotel, Christchurch

Anna and Danny's September wedding took place at All Saints Church in Southbourne, and was followed by celebrations at the Lord Bute Hotel in Highcliffe.

These two wonderful people could not have shown more love for each other, the amazing day was filled with the sound of laughter (as you can see by the photo-story below!) accompanied many times with tears of joy.

It really was a complete honour, not just to document such a lovely couple, but to be allowed to be a part of such an important day in their lives.

A BIG congratulations to Anna & Danny !!

Anna + Danny's Pre-Wedding Shoot - Sandbanks, Poole

After having met 10 years ago whilst both working at the Sandbanks Hotel in Poole, Anna and Danny appropriately chose Sandbanks beach for their pre-wedding photoshoot. The area clearly means an awful lot to them - there were plenty of stories as they happily reminisced about that summer and those that followed.

Anna and Danny are one of the most loveliest and energetic couples I have had the pleasure to photograph, and it was a joy to get to know them better before their big day in September. They will be getting married at All Saints Church Southbourne, with a fun-filled reception afterwards at The Lord Bute Hotel in Christchurch. Looking forward very much to documenting their day.

Sarah & Ian Pre-Wedding Shoot - Walk to Coy Pond, Bournemouth to Branksome

We met up with Ian and Sarah in Bournemouth Gardens on a beautiful summers evening and they chose to head through the Upper Gardens towards Coy Pond in Branksome. The walk takes in lush planting, cute little red bridges and even a lovely old folly which apparently is now a home for bats!

The warm evening glow was perfect whilst making our way over boardwalks and strolling through long meadow grasses, before arriving at our destination of Coy Pond. Here Sarah and Ian had a quiet moment together before a spot of first dance practice - we can't wait to capture the perfected dance, and the rest of their special day in a few months time at The Miramar Hotel.

Charlie & James Pre-Wedding Shoot - Branksome Chine, Poole

A pre-wedding shoot with a difference…romance and puppy-love!

James and Charlie chose the beautiful Victorian Walk down to Branksome beach as the location for our get together before their big day, and it couldn’t have been a better time of year with the Rhododendrons out in fabulous bloom. I was also introduced to little Yankee, the couples playful bundle of fluff, who I have to be honest not only distracted me from my job but also stole the show in many a photograph!

We strolled down to the beach where both James and Charlie couldn’t hide their playful side, we had lots of dancing and silliness which was a joy to photograph, all the while Yankee was trying to dig to New Zealand...

The couple are getting married locally at Talbot Heath School, I can't wait to document the fun, games and celebrations in a few weeks time.
