Gemma and Alex’s wedding
{Christchurch Priory and Captain’s Club}

Earle was not due to meet Alex until 11.00 and all our locations for Gemma and Alex’s wedding day were very close to each other so we thought it would be fun for Earle to come with me to see Gemma and the girls at Scissors in Christchurch and join in with some of their preparation photographs.  There was plenty of space there so we didn’t step on each others toes too much:-)  Our dear friend and much trusted make up artist Robyn Vallender was there also so the team was in place for all the girls to look their very best.

Next stop for Earle was Christchurch Priory where Alex was due to arrive with his family ready to greet the wedding guests, while I followed the girls back to Gemma’s family riverside home where the final preparations were taking place, dresses, shoes, flowers by Maria in Southbourne all set out and ready to go and in no time at all the bridesmaids were ready, the flower girls arrived, parent’s fully organised and Gemma was having the final touches to her veil and gown.

Spot on midday Gemma’s father walked her up the long aisle of this glorious church to where  Alex was waiting for her and their marriage ceremony could begin.  The wonderful music was accompanied by The Bournemouth Symphony Chorus Wedding Choir adding huge atmosphere to a very beautiful ceremony.  Outside the weather was being relatively well behaved, the sun shone and the plans for all the guests to arrive at the Captain’s Club by river ferry were going to be fulfilled while we photographed Gemma and Alex around the Christchurch Ruins, a favourite location for them both.  It was then their turn for the river ferry to be greeted by their guests who were enjoying drinks and canapes on the terrace.

With early evening drawing on and the wedding breakfast and speeches completed the casino was running for some after dinner entertainment.  Alex’s family are Viva Las Vegas, who we have met several times before and their casino always proves to be hugely popular and naturally no exception here!  The later evening was greeted with the four piece vocal harmony group The Imaginations kicking things off providing the music for Gemma and Alex’s first dance and rest of the night.  Wonderful fun and a packed dance floor!!!

It’s been a great day to be part of, we wish Gemma and Alex all the happiness for their life together.  Thank you both for your very kind hospitality.  We have chosen a few of our favourite images for you all to enjoy while the proofing is completed.  We always welcome comments from our readers here, please join in and click on the comments box below.
