Pre-Wedding Photos on Highcliffe Beach: Jane & Mark

I am often jealous of  Californian photographers with their golden beaches and beautiful cali sunlight. Well we’ve got pretty evening sun and sandy beaches in Dorset too! This is Jane and Mark on Highcliffe beach. They get married this weekend at Norton Park so you’ll see more of them soon…


Lesley & Sam’s Wedding at Highcliffe Castle and Sopley Mill

Lesley and Sam got married at Highcliffe Castle, a gorgeous venue near Christchurch overlooking the sea. They had a unique wedding ceremony which was very personal to them. As guests found their seats they played some rather appropriate, but certainly not your usual wedding music, such as Eye of the Tiger and The Final Countdown to psyche everyone up for the big event. During the ceremony they had readings written by Dr Seuss and Edward Monkton (The Love dinosaurs), which were again not your usual wedding readings, but very appropriate.

After the wedding ceremony, the happy couple and I headed down the cliffs to the beach for some romantic photos by the sea. Highcliffe beach is a special place for Sam & Lesley as that is where he proposed to her. For me, this is where I shot my first wedding so it was kind of nice to me to go back and feel like I knew what I was doing this time! The weather wasn’t perfect, but I loved running around on the sandy beach barefoot. After hiking back up to the Castle for some photos by that huge doorway we rejoined the guests at Sopley Mill for a BBQ and celebrations.

It was definitely one of my favourite weddings with a very sweet and fun couple, lots of cool little touches and with lots of familiar faces from Nicky and Allan’s wedding last year, so I felt very welcome and really enjoyed the day. Here is a taster of their wedding photos. The full gallery is online for friends and family here.
