April-Jane and Philip’s wedding
{The Italian Villa, Compton Acres}

We have known Philip and his family for many years and so it was with huge pleasure we were able to photograph his marriage to April-Jane last Sunday at the very elegant Italian Villa at Compton Acres in Poole.  AJ was spending the morning with her family and 6 bridesmaids while they all enjoyed a thoroughly girlie time elbow deep in make up and hairdressing accessories with any spare space being filled with champagne and bacon butties carefully prepared by her lovely grandparents.

Earle met Philip at his parents Broadstone home where everyone was enjoying a hearty breakfast while finishing touches were being put to some key speeches before leaving for the Italian Villa to greet all the guests for the 1.00pm ceremony.

AJ and her party arrived in good time, with the bridesmaids leading AJ and her grandfather up the aisle to Philip.  The registrar is a longstanding family friend and delivered a beautifully personal and relaxed ceremony just as Philip and AJ had hoped for, with lots of laughter and just a few tears.

The weather was extremely chilly so we did not linger outside for any longer than necessary after the recessional but we did pop along into the  gardens for a few minutes with AJ and Philip for some portraits.  A massive well done to AJ for this, you really were very stoic!  Everyone enjoyed the delicious wedding breakfast and brilliant speeches including some surprise ones for AJ!  With the evening rolling on it was big time party time:-)

We send our warmest congratulations to AJ and Philip on your marriage and for having the most wonderfully behaved baby!!  Little Freddie is a total star.  We have selected a few images from your day for you to enjoy while we complete the post production on your proofs.
