Kathy & David Wedding St Micheal and Dudsbury Golf Course

Kathy and David's wedding was at St Michael and All Angels in Verwood. Not only is the church visually beautiful with it's intricate paintwork, the joy of the ceremony with music provided by Kathy and David's friends made for a very happy start to their married life.

The wedding car picked up Kathy in the morning and took the newlyweds to Dudsbury Golf Club for the wedding reception was provided by Reg and Christine at Barnes Wedding Cars

Dudsbury Golf Club made a great backdrop for the romantic wedding portraits and as is customary there Teri went with the couple to the far side of the golf course in golf carts for some romantic images at bridge and lake. Kathy's wedding veil worked wonderfully in the light breeze to create some stunning images to feature in their wedding album.

Everyone had a great time and the day was rounded off when nearly all the guests took to the dance floor for a reprise of timewarp underneath the impressive chandelier in the main reception room.

Gemma and James Pre-Wedding Session

We knew we wanted some fun engagement images of Gemma and James to include the third family member Daisy a bouncy 8 month old Golden Retriever. When Gemma and James mentioned they liked the graffiti wall pictures we'd shown from a previous engagement shoot and that James was a keen skateboarder we knew that had to be part of the shoot.

We finished up at Hengisbury Head, it's 1 pound for adults and 20p for Daisy to travel on the land train from the car park and since we wanted some sunset images we didn't mind the walk back as the train stops running at 6pm (varies).

Some great images, Teri used our portable softbox for the image of Gemma and James against the sky and though I got some neat images of the couple one of my favourites is of Daisy pouncing onto a coke bottle just before she shot off to find one of us to throw it again for her :)

Suz and Ryan's Beach Pre Wedding Shoot

We met up with Suz and Ryan midday near the Bournemouth end of Sandbanks beach, on their wedding day they knew they wanted some wedding images on the beach so the engagement session provided a good warm up. Since we were close to their wedding reception venue at the Miramar hotel we took a quick look round with them just to double check the layout is as we remembered it (it hadn't changed much though now the civil ceremonies are on the front lawn rather than the back as they used to be).

We finished off the day by taking Suz and Ryan to Upton Country Park, so many of our couples love the images we shoot there and it's a great venue, we always try to bring out something new even when we've shot an engagement or wedding venue many times.

Suz and Ryan were good sports and it was great to chat and get to know them better over a spot of lunch near the pier at Bournemouth :)
