East Close Hotel Wedding : Kate & Andrew

Andrew & Katie found me last year and asked me if I would photograph their wedding and I was delighted. During their engagement shoot at Coy Pond they told me how Andrew went about popping the important question.

Andrew got in touch with the Bing team and asked them if they would help him create an extra special wedding proposal for  Katie. The Bing team thought it was a fantastic idea and helped him to create an all singing and dancing marriage proposal in Bournemouth’s town centre. Take at look at

So a few weeks later after the Coy Pond engagement shoot the wedding day was quickly upon Andrew and Katie. I had the pleasure of Maxine A’liette Crowhurst assisting me for this wedding as my 2nd shooter and her past experience at weddings and ability to think ahead and outside the box proved to be huge success throughout the day.

The East Close Hotel is a historic listed building full of charm and character but fully modernised internally. We arrived at the hotel nice and early as usual and had a walk around the beautiful grounds to check the various locations we had spotted on our previous visit were still accessible. This hotel is so peaceful and has many areas that are tucked away so I would highly recommend exploring this little treasure in the country.

We met Katie and all her bridesmaid in her hotel suite and were greeted by a room of Scandinavian beauty and they were all as beautiful in their nature too. Andrew arrived with their two adorable sons and he was checking the venue which Katie had gone round earlier and put all her finishing touches to. Soon the guests arrived and filled the grounds with excitement. Katie and Andrew’s ceremony took place inside the hotel and afterwards guest cooled down with Pimm’s and then we had a great group shot which I took from the top of the hotel. The Marquee hosted the wedding breakfast and speeches and a Child entertainer later enthralled the little ones whilst other games on the grounds were in full swing including the bouncy castle which was entertaining to photograph the adults invading the children’s zone. A nice selection of signature shots were captured around the grounds and we had plenty of time to get a lovely collection of candid shots of the guests and family members. The evening reception started with their cake cutting and first dance after which we slipped off to let them enjoy the rest of the evening’s party.
