A later start for us today as we were to start with the Groom’s arrival at the church, St Saviour in Iford. The forecast for today wasn’t looking good, rain was on it’s way and it was just a matter of when it would reach us.
Graham arrived in a London red cab courtesy of a couple of friends who were also called Deborah and Graham and was met by Mark the best man. Mark is multi tasking today as he is also giving his sister Deborah away! We felt a few spots of rain while we waiting for Deborah but it was still holding off.
Deborah arrived in a car supplied by Superwed with Scarlett the bridesmaid and looked amazing in her red wedding dress from Chameleon bridal. This was the second week running that one of our brides had married in red.
The friendly vicar Andy put the couple at ease and conducted a lovely ceremony after which the the newly married couple processed out of the church to the gardens for the formal group photographs. The guests were co-operative with getting the photos done quickly as Graham and Deborah wanted to go to the beach for their photos, it was going to be a race against time before the rain arrived so we had no time to lose.
A short drive across to Boscombe and we were soon on the beach. We often use this area for beach photography as it’s also handy for the pier which we particularly like. We were so lucky to have got the location photography done without the rain which was now really threatening.
A short trip to The Orchid Hotel a chic boutique hotel in Bournemouth where the reception was being held and the guests were waiting for the Bride and Groom to arrive for the wedding breakfast. As the guests were seated we bid our farewell and it had just started to rain, what timing!!!!
We wish Graham and Deborah all the very best for their future together and look forward to seeing them again when they return from their honeymoon.
