Lucy and Alex’s wedding
(Canford Magna Church and The Lord Bute)

Following a week of carefully watching the weather forecast it was with a very happy heart we headed off to meet Lucy and Alex at their respective locations with the sky and roads free of rain and the expectation of the day remaining dry.  Lucy was with her bridesmaids and Mum at MalcolmtinaBarker hairdressers where I was to meet them and Robyn Vallender of Folio who was taking care of Lucy’s makeup.  All the girls were soon ready to move along to Lucy’s childhood home in Merley to grab a bite to eat andhelp each other into their dresses before the wedding car arrived.

Earle had made his way over to Alex at home before he left for the pub and a quick drink with his family and some friends before everyone started arriving at Canford Magna Church.  With everyone in place Lucy arrived with her Dad right on time with the church bells ringing out loudly setting an idyllic scene.  Canford Church is always lovely to photograph in and with Lucy and Alex beaming at each other throughout the entire ceremony the picture was complete!  It seemed no time at all before Lucy and Alex were walking back down the aisle and out of the church as a very happy Mr and Mrs North.  We were pleased to have a moment for some photographs of Lucy and Alex having a quiet moment together in the serene and peaceful surroundings of the church before leaving for The Lord Bute  in Highcliffe and their wedding celebrations.

Following a relaxed drinks reception and receiving line everyone was seated and ready for the speeches and a lovely meal.  By early evening Lucy and Alex were ready to take a trip with us to the beach for those extra special photographs of just the two of them that they had been looking forward to.  It was blowing an unexpected gale on the coastline but they were total heros and were determined not to be thwarted so off we went down onto the beach and some stunningly atmospheric photographs of our very happy couple!  Lucy’s dear sister Alice, was on hand upon our return to The Lord Bute to recover Lucy’s beautifully styled hair and here I must compliment Tina on how well Lucy’s hair did cope with the blustery conditions and her long veil did not budge an inch!!!!  With Lucy looking completely refreshed and radiant as ever and Alex by her side the night’s party was ready to start, only then did the rain arrive, after dark and with everyone busy partying did anyone worry one jot?  I think not!!!!

A brilliant day, Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to a wonderful couple, we look forward to you having your full set of images to enjoy very soon but for now here is a selection of a few of our favourites from your wedding.  Our comments button likes loads of exercise so please click on it and join in on our blog.

Kimberley and Luke’s wedding
(The Lord Bute)

We met Kimberley and Luke a long time ago when they were in the earliest stages of wedding planning, they were very keen to be assured of the best possible record of their wedding day therefore the photography was extremely important to them so naturally Earle and I were delighted they chose to book with us and we were looking forward to a lovely day with them.

With the ceremony in Ringwood organised for midday it was an early start for us all!  Kim was getting ready over with Emma in Christchurch, Emma’s home was a hive of activity with the comings and goings hairdressers, make up artists, florists and family all adding to the excitment and anticipation of the day ahead.  Laura from LauraFlora had worked closely with Kim help her achieve the floral impact Kim had dreamt of and when Laura arrived with all the bouquets there were tears of delight!!!  Laura was then hotfooting it off to The Lord Bute to complete the decorations there.

Earle met up with Luke at home for some photographs before the boys all left to find a pub in Ringwood which was open for some early morning business…not always the easiest thing but Luke and his best man Darren struck lucky and were able to quench their thirst before making their way with Earle to the registry office.

Kim arrived for the ceremony in good time and looking beautiful.  The packed room was full of emotion throughout with tears of joy all around and a wonderful reading from Amie set the scene perfectly.  Mr and Mrs Luke Barrows were now ready to celebrate with their friends and family, following the showers of confetti outside the registry office we all made our way over to Highcliffe and The Lord Bute where Chris was waiting to welcome the bride and groom.  Earle and I took the opportunity to take some photographs of Kim and Luke in their gorgeous Garden Room suite while they were enjoying a refreshing drink together and waiting for their guests to arrive.

Everyone was enjoying the brilliant sunshine and garden area while we completed the family group shots before the wedding breakfast. The sunshine continued into the evening when we took Kim and Luke off for some photographs on the beach while the room at the Lord Bute was prepared for the DJ and loads of energetic dancing.  The evening light and air was wonderful giving us the perfect opportunity for some great images which Kim and Luke will be able to treasure along with all their other memories of this wonderful day.

Kim and Luke, thank you both for your very kind hospitality, Earle and I sincerely appreciate your generosity.  We have chosen some of our favourite photographs from your lovely wedding for you and your friends to enjoy while we work to prepare the rest for your online gallery.
