A short trip across Bournemouth to the home of Samantha’s parents found us in familiar surroundings. Just 3 years ago we were here to photograph the wedding of Katie, Samantha’s sister who was now taking on the role of Bridesmaid.
We photographed the late stages of the bridal preparations and some bridal portraits. Samantha was ready on time and looked amazing in her dress from Daisy bridal while over at Branksome Chine cafe our other photographer Julian was capturing the men enjoying a drink before they headed off to All Saints church in Branksome.
Samantha arrived to a church full of guests eagerly awaiting her arrival.
She took her place next to Kris for the marriage ceremony. After a lovely service the couple left the church as husband and wife and with the traditional throwing of confetti at the church gate the guests were invited to join the couple for photos in the grounds of the church hall.
Kris and Samantha wanted their photos taken on the beach so we did this while their guests made their way to The Sandbanks Hotel. The weather was glorious, even better than forecast. Kris and Sam rejoined their guests after being greeted by Sebastien, the wedding co-ordinator with a very welcome glass of champagne.
The wedding breakfast was served and after the main course the speeches were delivered by the bride’s father, the Groom and the best man.
The first dance was to an acoustic guitar played by Nick a friend of the couple before the disco provided the music for the rest of the evenings celebrations.
We wish Kris and Samantha all the very best for their future together and would like to thank them for their hospitality, we look forward to seeing them when they return from honeymoon.
