This is my first blog as a Bournemouth Beach wedding photographer. Now the winter is in full swing and the wedding season has become less hectic I though it was time to catch up on my summer wedding blogs: Lyndsay & Richard’s Wedding at Bournemouth beach and reception at the Boatyard cafe Sandbanks.

I thought it would be great at the end of each blog from now on to give as many as the vendors that contributed to making these awesome weddings a mention so you will see right at the bottom I have linked them in & networking is a big deal in this industry.

So my day started bright and early meeting Lyndsay and the girls at the Haven Hotel in Sandbank and then off to meet Richard and his groomsmen at the Marriot hotel.

The guys made their way down to the beach in the cliff lift and met all the family friends. This was my first time photographing a Bournemouth beach wedding and the weather was hot and not a cloud in the sky at that time which for the wedding party is great however the harsh light can be a challenge for us wedding photographers.

I got news that Lyndsay was arriving up on the cliff top so made my way back up there and met the bridal party arriving in the Bentley and limo. They made their way down to the beach and the marquee curtains were closed to hide them all from the wedding guests. The colourful bridesmaids entered one by one and were followed by Lyndsay and her Dad, Richard’s face was glowing at this point and once their eyes locked that was it, the emotions could not be held back. The ceremony went very smoothly with some readings and a great poem of sorts. Pimms cooled the guests off on the beach after where we got some great group shots.

These guys were so cute in the little surprises that they kept from one another for their wedding day and once we reached the top of the cliff Lyndsay had only gone and hired a Pink Cadillac to take them to Sandbanks for the reception. On the way we took a detour to evening hill and the world famous Sandbanks beach to get some shots of them together, this is my favourite part of the day to capture the bride and groom having some intimate time to themselves and its great to see them having a laugh and giggle away from all the guests. I even recall them calling one another Moneky and that is so sweet to see what couples refer to one another as nicknames.

Now all my weddings have couples I can see who are totally wrapped in each other and head over heels in love but I did recently read an article that some wedding photographers can see just how much they are in love and some who may not be at the same level – the article can be read here and was very interesting but luckily as I said my couples are all well in love with one another which I am sure is evident from my blogging.

The reception followed at the Boat Yard on the Sandbanks peninsular which was a great landscape setting offering a secluded area with views looking out to Whitley bay, Poole quay and Brownsea Island.

The wedding breakfast was scrummy and hats off to Richard Norris the Co-owner of the Boat Yard who certainly did not disappoint and did a sterling job as this was one of their first times hosting a wedding party.

The evening reception kicked off with a cake cutting and first dance but I managed to steal Richard & Lyndsay away for a sunset shoot on the boat pier first. This was a truly beautiful colourful and emotional wedding to capture and I wish these guys every bit of happiness for their future. Enjoy their photos!

These guys were stocked with their wedding photos and have had sent me a lovely review below

If you’re reading this review, then you’re probably looking for a Photographer for a special occasion... Well look no further and book now!! (If he is still available by the end of this review!)

Andrew photographed our wedding this year and we truly could not have wished for a better man to do the job! Professional yet personable, he has captured our day perfectly! Andrew is really passionateabout his work and this shone through on the day… Well it did when he wanted it to – half the time we didn’t even realise he was there, so you can imagine our delight when we saw his artistic capturing of those special moments! So many guests are still commenting on how wonderful our photgraper was! Now we just can’t wait to get our Album, also designed and organised for us by Andrew!
Andrew you really are one in a million and we can’t thank you enough for the time, effort and skill you put in to our special day! We now have treasured memories that will last us a lifetime... Lyndsay & Richard xxx
