Karen and Dougie got married on 15th October in the beautiful village church in Bradford Abbas. They then had a banquet and a good old knees up at Lower Stockbridge Farm's medieval barn.
Here is a preview from their wedding day as the sun set that evening. The rest of the photographs are on their way!
Joanne and Jason got married on 17th September in Shillingstone, a village just outside Blandford Forum. We met Joanne and her bridesmaids at her parents house as preparations got underway. During the morning we had a visit from one of the ushers, who had come to deliver a gift from Jason to Joanne. He had bought her a beautiful Pandora bracelet with a church charm for her to wear.
We made our way to Shillingstone Church, where the ceremony was taking place and guests were filling up the pews. Joanne arrived in a vintage car and walked with her father and bridesmaids to the church.
Following the ceremony as guests were congratulating the couple as if out of nowhere the heavens opened. We all dashed for cover under a yew tree, whilst we waited for it to blow over, unfortunately that didn't happen so we headed off to Durweston Village Hall for the reception. As soon as we arrived it had stopped; There's no beating English weather!
We didn't let it put a damper on the day and were able to head out on the green for some shots with the couple in the beautiful evening light, which you can see in Part II
Following Joanne & Jason's wedding ceremony in Part I their reception was held at Durweston Village Hall, which had been beautifully decorated with butterfly details and purple and white flowers. We left the church in the rain and luckily the showers stopped as we arrived at the village hall.
We had planned to take some shots in the field behind the church but weren't able to due to the weather so throughout the evening Scott and I kept an eager eye on the weather in the hope for a break in the clouds.
Luckily in the early evening there was a break in the clouds and the sun shone through. We made a dash for the green with Joanne and Jason and the light was perfect, that soft Autumn light you get in the golden hour. Well worth waiting for!
