A sneak peek at the beautiful an intimate family Brownsea Island Wedding in Dorset.
We adored photographing this beautiful wedding on Brownsea Island!
It was a very gusty day when we set out from Poole on the ferry with our bridal party. However the weather was bright and sunny.
After a calm 30 minute ferry trip we arrived at the jetty to be greeted but some very helpful National Trust staff who helped everyone off the ferry. From the jetty it was a short 10/15 minute walk up the beautiful church. There was just enough time before the brides arrival for me to shoot the flowers, Order of Service and rings. I chose to photograph the rings on the step of the church. I just loved the delicate ring box! I took the time to photograph the church in several directions while I waited for the bride to arrive.
After a beautiful ceremony I shot some lovely images of the bride and groom on the church step before organising a set of family group pictures.
This was an intimate family ceremony with less than 30 guests so this allowed me 45 minutes of shooting time for some bride and groom pictures.
Brownsea Island is beautiful, but you do have to be prepared to walk quite a distance to capture some of its hidden beauty.
During the walk up to the church I had scouted out a few photogenic locations for my Bride and Groom images. So I was prepared to take them to these spots after the ceremony to maximise our time. During our shoot the sun came out creating some very bright direct midday sunshine. I took this into account when deciding on final locations.
In total I guess we walked for about 25 mins to various locations and photographed for 20 mins.
The John Lewis partnership kindly allowed us to shoot some pictures in the castle grounds which was a delight!
This was such a wonderful and relaxed wedding. As always I did my very best to make the images as beautiful as possible.
You can see a small sneak peak selection of them below.
