Jessica and Rhys wedding

We had a great day on Saturday with Jessica and Rhys celebrating their marriage with their family and friends.  The ceremony was taking place at the Methodist Church in Broadstone so a very local wedding for us then a quick drive out to Athelhampton House where the reception and party was being held.

Earle and I have been friends with Jessica’s parents for some years now and were really pleased to be asked to photograph the wedding.  Earle drove over to Walkford to meet with Rhys and his two Bestmen for some photographs at home and then over to the cliffs looking out across the Solent before they arrived at the church in plenty of time to greet the guests.  I was with Jessica in Broadstone at her parents home with her family and bridesmaids, Lisa and Sarah.  Amongst all the banter and giggles the girls were ready to leave at the appointed hour looking beautiful, and Dave as Father of the Bride you looked pretty damn good too – Michelle did a lovely job of your hair!!!  Although it must be said your lovely daughter Jessica knocked the spots off everyone – totally fantastic.

The staff at Athelhampton House greeted us with a warm and tasty glass of Winter Pimms,  very scrummy.  We managed to complete the formal photographs before the light dropped too low and then Jessica and Rhys came into the gardens with us for a  little more photography before we needed to retire back into the warmth and a delicious wedding breakfast.

It was a fantastic day, great fun mixing work with some serious socialising at the party.  Weird seeing David without his camera though, at least it meant Barbara didn’t have to carry the tripod!

Congratulations Jessica and Rhys and a massive thank you for the wonderful hospitality extended to us and the unconditional trust you showed in Earle and me from the very start.  Have fun always!

Laura – portfolio

We have fallen into the habit of posting the wonderful weddings we photograph and not posting the portrait sessions we have such fun doing.  In an effort to break this habit and share another side of our work we are now including a really successful portrait shoot we did recently with Laura.  Laura came to us needing a portfolio so having opted for one of our portrait sessions specific to her needs we set the date and with Laura on top form we all had a brilliant time.  Today Laura has her portfolio and she has chosen the images she wants for the web and is delighted, see some of them below.

Charlotte and Ed wedding

Beaulieu was the place Charlotte and Ed chose for their wedding day.  A stunning venue with a really handy river for lots of messing about in boats for those who fancied it, in fact fire and water featured heavily throughout the day!  Ed and his friends spent much of the morning in the Montague Arms Hotel where Charlotte was also preparing with her Mother and bridesmaids.  The boys however decided it may be fun to leap into their boat and motor around the river and across to the church despite the rain.  Earle went with them but drew the line at climbing in the boat – much better photography was going to be achieved on ‘dry’ land apparently.  So with a brolley jammed into the branches of a well located tree Earle took shelter and has come away with some wonderful shots of six men in a boat on the river.

Beaulieu Abbey offered us wonderful opportunities for some photography during Charlotte and Ed’s marriage ceremony and we were able to complete all the formal photography inside which was fortunate.  Totally disregarding the weather Charlotte and Ed were brilliant sports and were happy to come outside afterwards into the lovely grounds for some photography in the fading light.  We had found a couple of spots where they could take some shelter and the results are really rather wonderful – so a great big thank you to you both for that time and we hope you are equally as pleased with the results!

Inside The Domas the most wonderful wedding celebration took place with a huge warming log fire burning adding to the festive atmosphere.  Here I must make a very special mention to Ed’s Father and his dancing, it was just fantastic.  We had a brilliant time photographing the whole party, the sparkler guard of honor worked a treat and the departure of the bride and groom on the boat back across the river was the crown on a truly successful and wonderful day.

Charlie you looked beautiful, your Uggs were an inspired addition to your dress! Earle and I are really looking forward to you both viewing all your images but for now take a look below to enjoy some of our favourites from your wedding day.  Congratulations to you both.
