Sopley lake wedding day : Claire & Tony

Here is my blog for Claire and Tony who celebrated after their ceremony at Sopley Lake Wedding venue.

I have known Claire and Tony for 4 years. I first met them at a festival where I got some great photos of them with their faces painted and well and truly in the festival zone. They were interested in my style of Photography and have followed my journey ever since. Tony and Claire over the years have become great friends of mine. I was truly overwhelmed when they approached me and asked for me to photograph their wedding day. Knowing their characters and tastes I knew straight away this wedding would be in a league of it’s own and something quite different.

Their ceremony took place in the Oak Court at Salisbury Guildhall. This venue was used as a Magistrates Court until 2012. It is a replica of the Old Bailey and designed on the diagonal for maximum capacity and constructed in 1896-97. Their Wedding Reception venue was at Dan Tanner’s Sopley Lakes which is just a beautiful picturesque setting for a wedding. I have been fortunate enough to photograph at the lake earlier in the year. The day started early at Claire’s for me where she was being pampered with a professional massage and maintaining her dignity my camera stayed in the bag. I dashed upstairs to get some shots of the flowers, dress and various funky accessories.

Claire’s two little dogs were lapping up the attention from all the family and friends that were there making sure the bridal preparations were all going to plan. Even my fiancee Holly was there to keep a nice calm aroma. We made our way ahead of the bridal party to meet Tony at the Oak Court. What an amazing historic venue it has to be said. Claire arrived and was led into the court room by her bridesmaids to be greeted by her Dad who handed her over to Tony.

After the vows, readings and register signing we gathered outside for some photos on the steps. Then we all made our way back down to Sopley in Convoy. The Marquee was full of hay and a dance floor and the Wimborne Town Crier Chris Brown soon got the party into full swing. The Wedding events manager was none other than Allie Kay. With all her years in events management industry was bound to throw a great party for the newlyweds and their friends and family to celebrate.

Within the friends and family in attendance were numerous performers and musicians which provided the entertainment for the night. I retired my cameras to the car early in the evening to enjoy myself as a guest and what a memorable day and night it all turned out to be. Enjoy their Sopley Lake wedding blog below and we wish them every piece of happiness they both so much deserve.
