We started out with the bridal prep shots which were done in the Brides Brother's house nearby to St Mary's church, Bransgore. The bride's brother and wife were just great and being newly weds themselves helped out a lot. We got some really great shots of Beth getting ready as well as some super family shots with her Dad and the children. Beth's daughter showed us what it means to dance joyfully and carried on doing this for the whole day as far as I can remember, bringing an air of lightness and joy to the whole day!
Not to be left out, however, the groom, best man and ushers met at that really special place The Three Tuns Pub. I might say located in a pretty good location, literally over the road from the church. Guess I will have to assume thats good luck rather than planning. Anyway the pub has a lovely oak-beamed bar and fireplaces which we used for some really memorable shots of Martin and the guys. Not just content with that, however, we wandered around the lovely extensive gardens and plants and super water features grabbing some more photos of the groom while he tried to finish his pint! This is no ordinary pub ...and the beers good as well.
Onto the church and the bridesmaids arrived first in the amazing ivory coloured Bramworth wedding car. An immaculate special 4 door saloon car with number plate C3 VOW ! The car then collected the bride and as the car came around the corner and stopped at the church we managed to get some great shots as Beth (looking absolutely radiant) left the car and walked up the path escorted by her Dad and the bridesmaids. The only thing was it was very windy on this mid June day and so we had to be quick. All worked perfectly, however.
After the beautiful service we grabbed a few wedding photographs outside the church before the wind blew us all away and then drove to Christchurch for the main reception but first of all stopping off at the Christchurch bandstand to grab some very special shots indeed of Beth and Martin together (and thankfully sheltered from the wind and rain by the roof of the bandstand). From then on the Bride & groom made there way to a private evening venue for party and wedding breakfast. An unusual day with the weather but it made it all that more special to help remember those very special moments, and there were many of them, which we truely captured on camera.
