What an amazing and beautiful day!
I was so privileged to be photographing this special day, the beautiful Wedding of Georgina and Adam Turner.
I arrived at the St George's church around 11:15pm for a final pre-check of the church and a quick word with the lovely vicar Fiona Hall who spent a short time of her busy schedule quickly running through with me how the service was to run and any restrictions I had to follow.
I then briefly met a excited and nervous groom outside the church before driving 2 minutes down the road to meet his lovely bride. En-route to the Brides house, I saw the very beautiful horses and carriage warming up by trotting along around some dorchester roads near the brides house.
When I arrived at the house, I was warmly greeted by the lovely Bride and I was stunned by how beautiful she looked getting ready for one very lucky groom.
I photographed as much detail of the goings on inside the house as possible and also had the great opportunity in capturing Georgina looking at herself in a tall mirror which was being held by her father, this was my first favorite photo of the day.
When it was time to leave for the horse and carriage, I took another beautiful photo of the father and bride about to leave the house.
I captured the Georgina getting into the horse and carriage and then leaving for the church.
I then ran to my car as fast as possible and caught up with the horse and carriage.
Whilst behind the horse and carriage, It was a lovely view of them with the church in the distant and I looked at my camera and thought, yep this was something I should definitely capture, so I stopped briefly and captured a beautiful photo from inside my car. (no, I wasn't driving officer, honest!) :-)
Its a shame about the other cars in this photo but it was still a shot not to be missed!
The Horse and Carriage arrived outside the Church and I quickly parked up, grabbed my gear and ran up to the Bride and party by the horse and carriage and took a photo before they entered into the church yard.
During the ceremony, I was restricted to standing at the back of the church but using my 70-200mm zoom lens, I still managed to capture the exchanges of loving looks between bride and groom and the atmosphere of this beautiful Wedding.
When the first part of the service was done, I quickly swapped to my walkabout lens and ran up to where they were signing the register and captured lots of beautiful photos here. One of my favorite photos was of Georgina's sister Jackie with tears of joy at her sisters wedding, I thought this was so beautiful and made for a lovely photo showing the emotions of this special day.
After the ceremony, I took lots of photos outside the church before
following the newly wed happy couple in their horse and carriage heading of to the very beautiful Borough Gardens in Dorchester.
I really enjoyed photographing the Bride and Groom here as well as various other photos and group shots. This was such an amazing
place and the weather was sunny enough to capture some truly beautiful photos. There was also a nearby fountain which made for some very beautiful bride and groom photos indeed.
Lots of beautiful photos were taken here and then it was time for the reception.
During the wedding reception there was lots and lots of guests there to celebrate Georgina and Adams wedding and everyone was having a great time!
The food served looked fabulous and the Wedding cake (which was made by Adam) looked amazing! He obviously put a lot of effort into it and the retails of the Bride and Groom and Dalmation as the cake topper was so clever!.
I spent time here taking as many candid photos as possible just to show the atmosphere of the event rather than posed photos. (although I did do a few posed photos of a few various guests including a beautiful photo of a baby boy who was so photogenic!)
To summarise, I had a great time photographing this momentous event - The Beautiful Wedding Day of Georgina and Adam Turner and I was very happy to be part of such a wonderful day!.
All the Best
