One of the things I love about doing wedding photography is the people I meet, and its really special to be an observer to that one day when they are most happy and with all those who love them. I knew my old work colleague Robin in the context of supply chain, spreadsheets and management meetings, so it was really nice to step away from that and see him marry the lovely Becky, with a big group of friends and family.
They were married at St Mary’s Church in Winterbourne Abbas, a country church where Robin grew up. After the vows and a few photos dodging the drizzle, the party moved on to Lulworth Castle in Dorset for their reception. Part destroyed and then restored, Lulworth castle is a beautiful open space inside, lit by fairy lights, and livened up by the bright cerise pink colours of the their flowers and decor. Guests enjoyed bubbly and canapes, before sitting down for a colourful wedding breakfast and some funny and emotional speeches. As everyone moved through to the other room for the evening reception, Becky and Robin kicked off the party with a choreographed first dance culminating in a Dirty Dancing Lift to much applause.

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…
Winter wedding season is upon us, and the dark nights and chilly weather make for warm and cosy weddings indoors. Nicola and Matt got married at Athelhampton House in Dorset, an opulent 15th manor house filled with historical details and snug open fires, the perfect setting for a winter’s evening celebrations. I’ve picked this photo from the ceremony as a sneak peek, I just love the moment between just the two of them in amongst the room of happy friends and family. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sleat!
