Abi and Lee’s Wedding at St Peter’s Church, Pimperne and The Victorian Barn, Blandford.
Our first location today was the Victorian Barn which is located in Woolland near Blandford. In the beautiful quiet Dorset countryside nestled in a valley surrounded by hills. Abi had stayed overnight here in readiness for her wedding day preparations.
Abi was first to have her hair and make-up complete and was soon being helped by her Mum and Sister into her beautiful wedding gown from Courtyard Bridal. Her veil was originally her Mum’s so that counted for not something just borrowed but for something old and cherished.
We left for the church for the Groom’s arrival, the day was turning out to be rather hot and as the guests arrived most went into the church to seek some shade.
The Bridesmaids arrived a little ahead of Abi and with a few arrival photos it was time for Abi to be escorted up the aisle by her Father to the romantic sound of a harp playing for the wedding ceremony to begin.
Unfortunately the Church does not allow photography during the ceremony so with only one shot allowed during the first hymn there was no further photos allowed until the signing of the register. A real shame as the couple will have no memories of this part of the day.
The newly married couple left the coolness of the church out into the hot afternoon sunshine to be greeted by some of the St John’s Ambulance volunteers to which Abi and Lee belong who formed an archway for the couple to take their first few married steps through.
After the formal family photos the couple were showered with confetti and then the guests left for the Victorian Barn and we headed for some shade with Abi and Lee for their photos.
With a ride through Blandford in their vintage wedding car it was back to the Victorian Barn with a stop off at Woolland Hill for a balloon release in memory of Nan.
The evening was cooling down and as the room had to be prepared for the evening and the sun was setting we stole a few moments with Abi and Lee before their first dance for a few more photos.
We would like to thank Abi and Lee and their families for their hospitality. We wish Abi and Lee all the very best for their future together.
