Athelhampton House Wedding Photographer – Sue and John – A Dorset Wedding
Athelhampton House is a lovely wedding venue in Dorset, near Puddletown. I’d met up with Sue and John for there engagement shoot previously but it was surprising how quickly the wedding day came around. I arrived early for Sue getting ready at a lovely cottage in Tolpuddle (I’ve actually photographed at the church in Tolpuddle before). The villages round here are all lovely little villages. After doing some photographs of Sue and some of the details it was off to see Andrew at another cottage a little further up the road (it was nice to be able to walk to it). Here I was greeted with my favourite – a nice bacon sandwich 🙂 Andrew looked great in his kilt and special belt that had been presented to him by Sue as a present 🙂
After this is was off to Puddletown Church where I captured some of the people arriving and also it started to rain a little bit. Though as was fitting a wedding day the sunshine was to make an appearance for the photographs later on in the day. Then there was a lovely service where I was able to take some photographs from the balcony at the back of the Church (thankyou Vicar!). From here it was onto Athelhampton House for the wedding reception. Athelhampton House is lovely and the staff there are so accomodating – thanks everyone!
We did some formal photographs then I concentrated on capturing the day with what the guests were doing. I then sneaked John and Sue away for 15 minutes to do some portraits in the lovely Gardens. It was also a good opportunity for Sue and John to get some time alone together as Man and Wife 🙂
So without further delay here are some photographs for you to enjoy.
