It was nearly a year ago when Lucy & Simon came to visit us to tell us all about their plans for their wedding in Studland. I remember discussing the kind of wedding they wanted – relaxed, informal & fun but still sophisticated. I remember seeing the images that we would make for them in my mind. They were as clear as day to me and even though they were still sat at our kitchen table I had transported them to Studland Beach and they were dancing on the sand.
So almost a year later and many hours of planning it’s wonderful to see these beautiful images in print and brought to life. Lucy and Simon’s wedding took place at St Nicholas Church on Studland and their reception was held at Shell Bay Restaurant, Ferry Road, Studland in Dorset. Their day was a whirlwind of magical moments spread across three venues and incorporating sunshine and showers so we had it all. We could not have asked to spend the day with such a great crowd of people. Thank you guys for trusting us with your special day for looking after us. We’re really looking forward to creating your Story Book!
Many thanks to the team at the beautiful Shell Bay Restaurant in Studland for being so attentive and professional.
Here is a very small selection of our work from the day.

More about the photography.
Photography at this level requires planning and then the ability to react immediately to modify your plans at a moments notice. There is absolutely no room for indecision. Shooting and parking at multiple venues with only minutes to spare combined with complex lighting conditions coupled with sunshine, wind, sand and rain the logistics of carrying and protecting highly sensitive equipment whilst always being creative and keeping your mind 3 steps ahead of the action really is no simple task. It’s why many photographers & the majority of the public completely underestimate the complexity of the situation. It’s also why many people find the responsibility just too stressful. So if you do find yourself shooting a wedding with limited experience our advice is keep to what you know, definitely don’t attempt anything too complicated and be willing to change your plans at a moments notice, remember by the time you have seen something special the moment has probably already passed.
