Happy Monday morning, you lovely lot! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend and I wanted to start our week with something extraordinarily wonderful… a real wedding I’ve had stashed up my sleeve for a little while now, and one I love so, so much! Chrissi and Tom’s wedding is unique for their dramatic images by the ruins of Corfe Castle. Their wedding was photographed by fabulous Dorset wedding photographers Linus Moran and associate photographer Chris Gorman at Linus Moran Photography.

The energy of the couple, their relationship both between them and their gathered friends and family made the day special for me as photographer. This shone through in the images I captured on the day, with some particular favourites from last year’s shooting arising from their day. Namely the ceremony pictures of the bride and groom upon meeting each other at the altar. The look exchanged between them, the curve of Chrissi’s mouth, a beautiful moment of connection. This coupled with great light, composition and timing – its stands out to me. The exchange between mum and daughter at bridal prep with the two bridemaids looking on, and the series of images we did on the fields across from the ruins of Corfe Castle.
It’s a very dramatic Dorset view and perfect for some bridal portraits. When we set off from the chgurch – the heavens opened with a huge downpour. However this didn’t dampen their spirits, it just required a few brollies. The rain was hitting us all sideways but we kept going and we achieved what we wanted with some great portraits – even if the photographer did get drenched!
The reception venue of Kingston Maurward ws indeed great. Having worked there on numerous occasions last year, it’s turned out to be a regular in the calendar. They have great facilities keeping all guests nestled in amongst some of the most beautiful Dorset countryside. They always take care of other wedding suppliers working at the venue, with great quality food being provided. Couldn’t recommend them enough!
“We couldn’t be happier with Linus and Chris! They made us feel utterly at ease and the shots are stunning. Very calming and professional. If you want a documentary style shoot for your wedding then you will not be disappointed.” ~ Chrissi & Tom
