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.

This is just wonderful! An outdoor wedding in the Dorset sunshine, with a beautiful bride and gorgeous groom and some inspiring details for styling and DIY. I think the theme of Alex and Jonny’s wedding is wonderful: there’s a little of everything from paper poms to vintage books, a fingerprint tree (or is it a hot air balloon in the style of Up?!) and some of the prettiest wedding flowers I’ve ever seen. Wow. Images are by the lovely Howard Lucas Photography

Kingston Maurward wedding

The cream teas look delicious. The lawn games look like so much fun! Photographer Howard Lucas says “after drinks and canapés at Kingston Maurward the bridal party continued onto Herrison Hall in Charlton Down, an absolute gem of a place and a relatively last minute decision. This was the most handsome of settings for guests to enjoy a traditional cream tea and games on the lawn before taking their seats in the carefully set and delightfully depicted reception.
