Christmas weddings

With Christmas not far off, it got me thinking of Christmas weddings I’ve photographed in the past. There’s no doubt that churches, hotels, in fact any venue at this time of year look really nice. Look at this picture of a local church I worked at a couple of years ago. The altar just looks so much more attractive than usual.       Weddings at this time of year are, for obvious reasons, not that popular as it’s cold and the light is poor etc but to me and no doubt others, there’s always something special about a Christmas wedding.

Two new wedding bookings

In the past week or so, I’ve booked a couple of lovely weddings for 2016. Thanks to Amy and Andrew for booking me for their wedding at Merley House, a venue I’ve not worked at before so I’m excited about that and also thanks to Nigel and Donna who have booked me for their wedding at the Highcliff Marriott Hotel in Bournemouth, a really nice venue, perfect for weddings (you can get married in the gardens overlooking the sea which is stunning!) and also where politicians stay when their party conferences take place in Bournemouth. On a different note, I

Subtle wedding photos

Sometimes it’s the subtle detail photos which can really add interest to a set of wedding photos especially when presented in a wedding album. I took these three photos at a recent wedding and I like all of them for different reasons: the bridesmaid glass with the bridesmaid blurred in the foreground and the wedding guest shot with colourful foreground interest are particular favourites of mine. Remember, a professional photographer will spot opportunities like these and use techniques which add artistic effect.

Wedding at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel

Yesterday’s wedding at the Christchurch Harbour hotel was one of the most enjoyable weddings I’ve worked at for ages. The setting at the hotel is amazing as it sits right next to the water’s edge but also the weather was fantastic and the couple managed to plan a very relaxed day for all their guests. A whole group photo was made more fun by the releasing of a whole load of balloons. The venue has a little jetty which is perfect for wedding photos. After an ‘afternoon tea’ wedding breakfast and some excellent singing from Jason Jay Taylor, Clare and

photos on the beach!

Well it’s always good to go to the beach and I’m very lucky to live only about a ten minute walk from the beach so I’ll quite often take couples or families down there for photos. Claire and Andrew were keen to have some practice photos before their wedding in May so we headed down to Southbourne beach one sunday morning and these were a few of my favourites. Hope you like them and I can’t wait for the wedding at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel in a couple of weeks’ time.

Wedding Fun by the water

Karen and Jools’ wedding last week was great fun.  They decided to incorporate lots of different water themed elements into their wedding and they were lucky as the weather was ideal, if anything slightly too warm.  The couple got married at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel which is a beautiful hotel and directly overlooks Christchurch harbour. It even has a little jetty from which boats can be launched etc. Then a small rowing boat arrived and the couple slightly nervous, carefully boarded the boat desperate not to fall in the water! However their nerves soon subsided and it wasn’t long before

Photo of the week

I just found this photo whilst looking through some shots of a venue where I’ve been asked to photograph a wedding later this year. I just remember that on our way to the venue, the couple and I stopped off at the New Forest to capture some natural shots. What caught my eye about this photo was two things. First the lovely setting but also the great expressions on the couple’s faces.

A lovely wedding

I photographed a super wedding at the Chine Hotel last Sunday-the weather was great which helped as did the setting for the ceremony-a old church in Wimborne St Giles with a beautiful green outside for photos. Ozlem and Chris has chosen great venues for their wedding and both were excellent subjects on the day. The bridesmaids were stunning all dressed in red polka dot. The heat was rising so we headed down to the beach at Boscombe, just a short walk through the hotel’s gardens but first it was time for an ice cream! The beach wasn’t too busy and
