Wowsers! What a fabulous day it was in Bournemouth, Dorset today!
The day after the Royal wedding and there was a no-less important wedding to attend today in Bournemouth. The one of Sammie and Marc, we started off with Sammie and then onto the Church, and finally to the beautiful Parley Manor. It is from there that the sneak peek was taken.
So have a GREAT honeymoon guys and I'll see you when you get back!
Today I caught up with Ben and Hannah who's wedding I'm photographing later this year (who also have a hogroast :) :) :) - i like this :) )
We met up at a secret location in the new forest where we had some fun with rope swings, horses, trees, bits of wood, logs, roads and finally a bridge and a camper van.
There is a bit of a story here - Ben and Hannah have a camper van booked for their wedding (hope that wasn't a secret!). and there was a bridge at this secret location. So we went to the bridge and i wanted a nice shot of a car going past them. So we took a couple (including an old transit as it passed). Then as we'd packed up and were walking back up the road Hannah saw a VW camper van coming towards us. So we sprinted back to the bridge, whilst i ran down the bank and threw my bags/cameras on the floor and setup position by the tree waiting for the camper van to pass.
Here is the result!
Today saw me in Romsey, then in Portsmouth aboard the HMS Warrior for todays Super Sunny Wedding. It was then back to Ampfield for the reception after some awesome photography on board the ship.
The Sneak peek today is an epic photograph with a blossom tree and a fast setting sun!
Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Turner!
See you when you get back!
Today saw me at Highcliffe Castle for the Wedding of Kathy and Keith, and what an awesome day it was!
I took this spectactular ring shot complete with two ladybirds.
and after the great ceremony we went down to the beach to take some images with the sea behind us.
I went for black and white with this sneak peek. What do you think? comment below please :)
Enjoy some awesome dorset wedding photography by an awesome dorset wedding photographer!
And many thanks go to Graham Fry for assisting me today. Thanks Graham!
Here's a wedding from the archives that I've not posted from before.
The wedding was up at Chelsea Registry office and i was second shooting with the Legendary Tim Churchill.
and here we are being given tickets
There was even a belly dancer with a sense of humour - draping her hair over the bald fella here
Then it was onto some heartfelt speeches..
and some equally great reactions
and also be fun for your guests at your wedding
and finally a fun one of irina to finish us off so to speak
and finally (i have to say it)... from russia with love!
Thanks for being so awesome and thanks to tim for having me along - legend as always.
In order to pass the time it seemed like a sensible plan to stay out at a nightclub taking some photos until 4am (and deafen myself in the process)
Last weekend saw a big meetup of like minded photographers who like to spend time rolling in leaves, having their photograph taken and shouting 'me! me! me!'. But enough of me! :)
Seriously though - this was a great event organised by Juliet McKee of Sugar and Spice photography where 30+ photographers (not all from the wedding industry) got the chance to meet up and put each other at ease (like we do when we're photographing a real client - i.e. you!)
So we met up at some ridiculous time (10:30am) and split into several smaller groups. Despite what people often think of a male dominated industry there were mainly women at this shootswap, so I guess times are a changing when it comes to wedding photography and now it's just as likely (if not morw) that your wedding photographer will be wearing a skirt and not a suit!
Anyways - here's a few of my favourites from the day....
and nothing to do with photographers, but a nice swan
and finally here's one of me hanging around during the session :)
Today saw me make the trip back to my roots to photograph the wedding of Jools and Heather. I first spoke to Jools quite some time ago via Twitter, so it was an honour when he asked if I could photograph his forthcoming wedding up in the very picturesque Cressbrook Hall.
So the day arrived and it was all set to be another awesome wedding photography adventure, with rolling countryside and breathtaking vista's.
And what a great day it was! I was made to feel very welcome and was given a delicous meal ending with an scrumptios pudding that i wolfed down in about 2 bites!
Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Turrall! I'll speak to you both soon and thanks for making the wedding photography such fun! (Just as it should be I hasten to add!)
And as a reward for reading this far (and not falling off the precipice) - then here is a sneak peek from todays wedding photography (not in dorset this time).
My new wedding photography albums arrived, these are from a fantastic UK based supplier so I don't have to worry about my carbon footprint being through the roof and I get to support UK companies which is great!
I met up with Kirk and Sally this last weekend to do an engagement shoot. I knew from the moment I met them both that they'd be up for a laugh and true to form we ended up getting a go on the big slide that was by bournemouth beach this weekend.
I'd have loved to get on their but obviously health and safety dictated i couldn't ;-) (honest).
I've been remiss in my blogging the latter half of last year, so firstly apologies. And here's a wedding that I photographed way back last year at Parley Manor, near Bournemouth Airport.
The day started off with surprise Ferrari's that the Groom hadn't known about!
and Vicky had a quiet moment before the chaos ensued
and having some fun before the ceremony
What an awesome dorset wedding!
