A Dorset Seaside Wedding in February….quite a gamble with the weather, but I like living dangerously!
Claire & Leighton’s wedding was held at the Cove House Inn. A small, intimate wedding venue over looking Chesil beach in Dorset.
With the couple living and working over in Dubai, this was a close family ceremony with a dozen guests. I love small weddings, they have a unique charm and as this day proved to be memorable. Delivering some lovely documentary wedding photography full of raw emotion. Less emphasis on the commercial details, keeping the focus on the people that matter- Bride, Groom and their gathered guests.
It’s touch and go at the best of times with the weather for a Dorset seaside wedding, especially in February. This year though, the area had been making national news on a daily basis with its extremely harsh weather of 30ft waves battering the venue the proceeding week. Two days before, the wind dropped and come the day, the sun shone… spectacularly!
A full post will follow shortly, but for now just the two images to share. One documentary group shot of the bridal party walking from the venue, everybody present and captured in context – naturally. No need for posed formal shots when you can get a perfectly framed real life wedding photo.
The later shot, being more of a contemporary portrait of Claire & Leighton. I love working as wedding photographer on the south coast. The weather is changeable, but when the sun comes out – it’s so worth it. That deep blue sky is a beautiful backdrop within which to frame a couple and get some wonderful wedding portraits.
