I am a bit behind with my blog (again!!!) after a very busy couple of weeks, so I’ll do my best to catch up.
On Saturday 5th July, I headed off down to the south coast for Annabelle and Harry’s wedding in Winterbourne Zelzton church and on to the Harbour Heights Hotel in Sandbanks.
Annabelle was getting ready with her niece, Charlotte, as I arrived in time for a coffee, before taking some shots of Annabelle and Charlotte in the conservatory. Then it was off to the church to catch up with a very relaxed Harry, his best man and ushers. Despite very black clouds, the rain held off during the service and afterwards, so we spent some time in the lovely grounds of the church, which was by a little brook, lined with weeping willows – very romantic!
Annabelle’s father’s other pride and joy (other than Annabelle!)- Betsy the red Morgan, was parked up for some photographs and then we headed off to the beach for a few shots of Annabelle and Harry. By this time the wind had really picked up and it was more like winter than summer, so a big thank you to Annabelle and Harry for braving the wind for a few minutes! By the time we arrived at the Harbour Heights, the heavens opened, but it wasn’t a problem as everyone was glad to sit with a drink and enjoy the lovely bar area with its views across the bay.
Annabelle and Harry had asked me to stay through the meal to photograph the speeches, so I tucked in to a delicious wedding breakfast with gusto! The speeches were very entertaining and, in the case of the best man, there had clearly been a lot of work to produce an alphabetical slideshow charting some more interesting sides to the groom. Harry – your secrets are safe with me!
Annabelle and Harry are away on a fantastically exotic holliday taking in several islands in the Indian Ocean – I hope you have a wonderful time guys and I’ll look forward to seeing you when you get back.
Here are a few of my favourite shots:
