Retirement

Retirement
Earle and Jane have decided after a prolonged period of consideration have decided to not just slow down with Concept Photographic but to retire it completely. We have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of making very special memories, bringing them to wonderful people who can now live with those memories through our images but it is now done. We are putting our energies into the less fortunate and very much younger people in the world and devoting our time to them for the foreseeable future.
Our gratitude to those who have supported and encouraged us over the years will be with us always as will our thanks to everyone who put their trust in Concept Photographic to capture and reflect some of the most important times of their lives you all in turn have enriched our lives.

Recent clients please be reassured your gallery, albums, prints will remain available to order. Any queries whatsoever please PM or email jane@conceptphotographic.com. We are not disappearing totally, no more bookings though!

Many thanks xxx

Dolly and Steve’s wedding
{St Mary’s, Sturminster Marshall and Mirimar Hotel}

Dolly and Steve married at the same church as her parents in the village of Sturminster Marshall where her family live, the groom’s family had a little further to travel….across the Irish Sea!!  The traditional Irish influence was a beautiful inclusion to the ceremony and reception.  A wonderful and joyous day to end our life as wedding photographers!  Many congratulations Dolly and Steve on your marriage, we have selected a few of our favourite images for you to enjoy.

Emmie and Dave’s wedding
{Wimborne St Giles Church, St Giles House}

A wonderful day in the heart of our local countryside for Emmie and Dave’s wedding, Wimborne St Giles is home for Emmie and her family, her Father was thrilled to be able to use one of his vintage tractors for the bridal transport fulfilling an important wish for his daughter.  St Giles House proved a superb venue for the reception where Emmie and Dave were able to enjoy the splendid surroundings with their family and friends.  We have selected a few favourite images with our warmest congratulations to the bride and groom!

Carolina and Nick’s wedding
{The Sandbanks Hotel}

Carolina and Nick’s wedding day was a wonderful mix of Colombian energy and  British custom, bound together with a wonderful helping of romance at The Sandbanks Hotel.  A selection of photographs from their very special day tell their story with our warmest congratulations and very best wishes for a long and very happy marriage.

Camilla and Kit’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

Camilla and Kit travelled from their home in Guernsey for their wedding day in The New Forest.  We met them in Brockenhurst, Kit and his party were ducking the beams in the very quaint Cottage Lodge before leaving for drinks in Monty’s while Camilla and her family were at The Pig busy with hairstylists and makeup artists.

By the appointed hour of leaving for their ceremony at The Domus the early morning mist had lifted and the day was looking bright.  The ladies from Exclusively Weddings had been incredibly busy creating a magical and very beautiful scene within The Domus and proved perfect for Kit and Camilla’s particularly wonderful ceremony.  After which they  were able to enjoy a lovely drive in their wedding car around Beaulieu and grab a little time together while their guests tucked into the drinks reception.   A small army of Exclusively florists were back at work in The Domus  creating a massively impressive scene for the wedding breakfast.

Beaulieu’s open top vintage bus was a popular option for guests to have a trip around the estate in the early evening prior to the cake cutting and first dance which kicked off an excellent party with serious celebrations!

Huge congratulations to Kit and Camilla on your marriage and a very super day.  We hope you enjoy the blog images, we will be in touch as soon as the full gallery is online for you.

Zoe and Ben’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

The New Forest at this time of year has got to be one of the best places to be and with the sun shining brightly for Zoe and Ben’s wedding day at The Domus in Beaulieu everything was looking perfect.

Jane went to meet Zoe at home in Minstead while Earle met Ben at Monty’s where he was meeting up with friends and family for a quick drink before the ceremony.  The Domus looked wonderful, the afternoon light was streaming through the windows throughout Zoe and Ben’s marriage ceremony and we were able to complete the formal family photographs outside in the Cloisters before they were taken for a drive around Beaulieu village in their very grand Rolls Royce wedding car and then enjoy their wonderful wedding breakfast.

It was important to Zoe and Ben to have those after dark photographs in the Cloisters, so they were more than happy to brave the evening chill after their first dance and we hope they are delighted with the results.

Many congratulations to Zoe and Ben on your marriage, a wonderful wedding day and for finding each other in the first place!
