West Bay – ‘stripped bare’

Chiaroscuro (English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊəroʊ/; Italian: [ˌkjaroˈskuːro]; Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.

A few days R&R in West Bay, Nr Bridport, Dorset. Normally a bustling harbour, but rather different as the approaching Hurricane Abigail did it’s worst on a mid November evening. All images shot on the Fuji XE2. These are SOOC (straight out of camera) with absolutely no processing.

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday was probably the wettest day of the year and today wall to wall sunshine.

Gemma’s preparations were at the Sandbanks Hotel overlooking the glorious Sandbanks beach. Everyone was busy with the preparations, there was a calmness but with an air of excitement about the day ahead..

At the church we found the Groom, Best Man and Ushers busy with the final preparations for the ceremony. The guests were arriving and with the imminent arrival of the Bride everyone took their places for the ceremony.

Gemma arrived in style and looked amazing. Her Bridesmaids made sure that she looked perfect and  the veil was pulled over her face, she was ready to walk down the aisle to Gavin for the wedding ceremony to begin and for them to become husband and wife.

The newly married couple processed back up the aisle  out of the church for a few family and group photos before making their way down to the Sandbanks Hotel for the afternoon celebrations.

The wedding breakfast was served, speeches delivered and the evening’s entertainment set up. A Ceilidh band got everyone to their feet. Everyone was enjoying it, there was much laughter,  a few wrong steps (and some correct ones!), clapping when they got it right and laughter when they got it wrong, but most of all everyone was smiling and  having a good time!

We wish Gemma and Gavin all the very best for their future together. The following link will take you directly to their online galleries within our client area where you will find all of the images from the day. You will need the password provided in order to access the galleries.

Bournemouth Wedding Photographer – The Guildhall & Harbour Heights, Hotel, Poole,Dorset – Paula and Ray’s Wedding

Ceremony  – The Guildhall, Poole
Reception Venue – Harbour Heights Hotel, Sandbanks
Florist – Signature Flowers

Paula and Ray married on what was probably the wettest day of the year!

Paula was getting ready at the Harbour Heights Hotel. Throughout the preparations we all had our eyes on the weather and were hoping that it would brighten up as the day went on.
Paula looked amazing, she would certainly brighten up the day.

Over at the Guildhall we found Ray and the guests taking cover from the rain and having a quick drink to steady the nerves in The Angel Pub! The rain was not letting up so after a few photos  of the Groom in the ceremony room we waited armed with umbrellas for the arrival of the Bride.

After the ceremony it was quick dash to the car, unfortunately the weather was that bad that we couldn’t do the usual shot of everyone on the Guildhall steps and we also had to forget the planned stop off at the beach and head straight for the Harbour Heights for the drinks reception and photos inside.

During the wedding breakfast Paula had planned singing waiters as a surprise for Ray. No one suspected anything and as they burst into song there were some amazed faces and soon everyone was joining in with the entertainment. It’s a really nice way to get everyone involved especially after they’ve had a drink or two!

It is a shame when the weather isn’t what the Bride and Groom hope for and you would expect it to be fine in July. It’s even more disappointing when the day either side is lovely as it was in this case, However, Paula and Ray enjoyed their day and made the most of it celebrating with family and friends. Paula will also have the opportunity of wearing her dress again ( not many Brides get to do this) as we are planning a photo shoot on the beach  with them as Paula so wanted to do this.

We wish Paula and Ray all the very best for their future together. The following link will take you directly to their online galleries within our client area where you will find all of the images from the day. You will need the password provided in order to access the galleries.

Dorset Wedding Photographer – Athelhampton House, Dorchester, Dorset – Kristen and Chris’ Wedding

Another visit to one of our favourite wedding venues.

Kristen and Chris were the first couple to have their wedding ceremony outside at Athelhampton House, it was an honour to be part of this.

The driveway down to the historic manor provides a long aisle for a Bride wanting to make a grand entrance and Kristen certainly did. The long slow walk down towards Chris was fabulous and gave everyone a chance to soak up the atmosphere of this very special day and to get a long look at the gorgeous wedding dress that Kristen has chosen.

The weather had been kind – a perfect day for a lovely couple at a fabulous venue. After the ceremony and a few family photos the couple left their guests enjoying a drink and some garden games on the lawn in the afternoon sunshine while they went off for a walk around the gardens stopping off for a photo here and there. The gardens are amazing and provide so many lovely locations for photos that we are spoilt for choice.

During the Wedding breakfast Chris had organised some singing waiters as a surprise for Kristen, they burst into song as the desserts were served. As they began to sing  no-one was quite sure as to what  was happening but very soon they realised and were joining in with fun, even the staff at Athelhampton joined in (you can always rely on them to participate in helping to make your day special).

To start the evening celebrations Kristen and Chris performed their first dance which started as a shuffle hug and to the guests delight and amazement after a few steps turned into a fabulous choreographed routine.

We wish Kristen and Chris all the very best for their future together. The following link will take you directly to their online galleries within our client area where you will find all of the images from the day. You will need the password provided in order to access the galleries.

So it was the day after the worst storm that I can remember and during the night our thoughts turned to Melissa and Jamie hoping that the weather had not affected any part of their wedding day.

During the morning’s preparations everyone kept checking the forecast and looking out to see if the sun was going to make an appearance as promised. The morning slipped away quite quickly and soon Melissa was stepping into her beautiful wedding dress. As we left for the church to meet Jamie we passed the horse and carriage that was being prepared to take Melissa to Wimborne Minster, what a surprise that was going to be for her, she was certainly going to arrive at the church in style.

As the guests waited to see the Bride arrive Jamie took his place in the church so that his first glimpse of his beautiful Bride was as she walked down the aisle to be by his side.

After the ceremony the newly married couple processed out of the church into the warmth of the afternoon sunshine.

After a few family photos Melissa and Jamie left for a ride around the town in the horse and carriage and their guests made their way on to the Sandbanks Hotel for the drinks reception.

At the hotel everyone was relaxing and enjoying the drinks reception on the terrace which has fabulous views over Poole Bay and Old Harry Rocks.
