Beach Weddings Bournemouth – Claire & Matt

Beach weddings Bournemouth

Living in Hampshire gives me such a lovely assortment of wedding venues to visit, woods, fields, or like Claire and Matt’s wedding, the beach with Beach Weddings Bournemouth! Did I mention the newlyweds rode on a zip wire? No? Read on!

There is something very special about a beach wedding; the sound of the sea, the golden sands, the feel of the sun on your face…even though its here in the UK! We are lucky to have some wonderful beaches close by, living here on the South.

Claire got ready at the local Highcliff Marriott hotel with her lovely maids and little flower girl daughter, before making her way down to the beach in the famous cliff top lift. Claire looked incredible in her lace detailed gown as the bridesmaids complemented her in their blush pink dresses. The little sons looked so cool matching the other groomsmen in their little suits and bow ties – such cool kids!

The beautiful floral and driftwood archway was the perfect place for Claire and Matt to say their vows, while their family and friends watched and listened to their special readings. After ice creams, drinks and lawn games I took a walk along the beach with the couple, the sprinkling of rain wasn’t a problem and I got some shots with the sea and the beach, and even the cute beach huts, such a great backdrop!

Now, the part we are all waiting for! The ZIPWIRE! Claire and Matt were very brave as they decided on the spare of the moment to ride the zipwire from one end of Bournemouth pier right down on to the beach! I am sure it was such an exhilarating end to their day! After that excitement the couple had their first dance and celebrated into the night with their family and friends. I’m seriously lucky to have such cool clients to photograph!

Such a special day, and the zipwire was a first for me too! Congrats Claire and Matt xx

Here are a few of my favourite photos from their lovely day – thank you to Michael O’Sullivan who second shot for me, some of these are his.

The Sandbanks Hotel Wedding – Amy & Tom

The Sandbanks Hotel Wedding – Amy & Tom

The Sandbanks HotelGoodness me! What a BEAUTIFUL wedding Amy and Tom had this July in the wonderful The Sandbanks Hotel here on the South Coast. This incredible wedding venue is sat right on the edge of the beach in Poole overlooking the world famous Sandbanks Beach. The couple could not have asked for better weather; totally tropical temperatures and glorious sun shine made it feel just like a holiday. Absolute bliss!

Laid back romantics suit beach weddings and Amy and Tom fitted that ticket on their wedding day! Gentle tropic pink tones complemented beach blues and grays, we could have been in the Caribbean! The bridesmaids looked lovely in their pale pink hues, and the lace gown Amy fell in love with is just stunning. I love the shots on the beach with day trippers and holidaymakers in the background, just adds to the sense that these guys were doing something extra special! How many of us are lucky enough to say we strolled hand in hand on the beach moments after getting married? Just perfect.

In keeping with Amy and Tom’s tropical beach setting a steel band entertained the guests and later the lucky friends and family were again thoroughly entertained by a brilliant magician. I have studied the photos very carefully and I still can’t work out how he did it! Amazing! The whole day had an atmosphere beach and romance and just gorgeousness the little shells and pearls finishing off the look in the dining room were just perfect.

Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day guys x
