Hengistbury Head is a pretty spit of sand, dunes and beach huts down in Dorset near Christchurch. I met Katy and Tim in Mudeford Quay where we got the little ferry over to the rather remote headland one breezy, drizzly evening. Its a really beautiful spot and the chilly weather meant we had the sand to ourselves for their engagement photos. They get married tomorrow, looking forward to a great day and praying for some sunshine…
There was actually one day this month when it wasn’t raining. This was the evening we went to beautiful West Wittering beach in West Sussex for Lucy & Matt’s pre-wedding portraits. I like a good location for photographing and the deserted sandy beach, colourful beach huts, dunes, blue sea and warm evening sunlight were perfect. Looking forward to Lucy and Matt’s Hillier Gardens wedding next week (more sun please!)

Natasha and Peter did things a bit differently for their wedding photos. Putting aside the tradition of the bride not seeing the groom before the wedding, we met up in the morning for their wedding portraits. As a photographer this was a bit of a treat as I rarely get to spend so much time on the bride and groom photos. It also meant we were able to hit the beach and the colourful beach huts, before they went off to get married elsewhere. We went back to Hayling Island, where we had shot some pre-wedding portraits on a reconnaissance mission a few weeks ago. The sun was out and we had bright blue skies, it was a gorgeous day on the beach. Natasha and Peter are a really fun couple and you could feel the excitement they shared for their wedding in a few hours, and hopefully that shows in these photos.
Here’s a selection from their wedding day. Natasha & Peter, I hope you had an amazing wedding celebration and many congratulations!
Natasha & Peter are getting married in a few weeks on Hayling Island. We met there today for a pre-wedding portrait session on the beach, for a bit of a trial run before the big day. The beach huts provided a colourful backdrop for some fun photos, and the love shack- what a find! We brought some props along for a bit of a beach theme, and I think these made for some quirky photos. Thanks to Natasha and Peter for being great sports and being relaxed and cheerful in front of the camera. I’m really looking forward to our next session on their wedding day where we can build on some of the things we’ve tried to today.
