Crown Hotel Dorset Wedding Photographer – Emma and Matt
Crown Hotel Dorset Wedding Photography – I love weddings at the Crown Hotel in Blandford, it’s my local wedding venue so I know it well. When Emma first came along and told me about her wedding I knew it was going to be a brilliant day! Even though in the weeks before the wedding we had floods of epic proportions the day of the wedding was glorious sunshine and we even managed to venture out onto the meadows near to the Crown Hotel.
The day started with me going up to see Emma in her room at the Crown Hotel, as usual things were running behind schedule. Francesca was great and very laid back reassuring Emma that everything was fine. I used this time to get some unposed reportage style wedding photographs of the getting ready. I also took some reportage photographs of Matt who seemed to be doing everyone’s cravats up!
Then it was time for a few photos of Emma, her sister and mother before the ceremony. Matt was relaxed as ever waiting for Emma to arrive. I love the walk down the aisle – always such great expressions. The ceremony was lovely with some great readings too! Always helps people relax.
After the ceremony I let Matt and Emma relax whilst i just captured the natural and relaxed fun photographs of people enjoying the wedding. It was awesome. Then before the meal I sneaked Emma and Matt away for 10 minutes to go for a walk and get some time alone for the first time since being man and wife! This is always a great time to get some fun and relaxed portraits of the couple and Matt and Emma were no exception. We even managed a mini homage to the beatles and abbey road with a black and white photo of them crossing a zebra crossing.
It was then onto the wedding breakfast and some great wedding speeches. Again great to photograph some reactions and there were some tears during the speeches. After the speeches the evening reception started and then wedding photobooth was a great hit! Then before long it was time for the first dance and the party proper to kick off!
What an awesome day! What an awesome wedding and an awesome couple. Thanks to Matt and Emma for choosing me to share there wedding day and also to the crown hotel for looking after me so well.
