I arrived at the Coppleridge Inn for Alexandria’s bridal preps with one eye on the sky; we were forecast for regular showers all day and as usual I was hoping that we escaped them for the biggest outdoor moments of the day! The Bridal room was busy as usual, filled with bridesmaids, Alexandria’s sister and her …

Oddly, I began this year’s season right back where I ended last year , with a wedding at Symondsbury Tithe Barn, right here in Dorset. The weather was unexpectedly lovely – bright and warm, and not at all what I expect to contend with for a February wedding!

After the recent run of ‘interesting’ wedding weather, I was glad that last Saturday’s Dorset Wedding at Sherborne Castle seemed set for some rather unremarkable Autumnal cloud – with no rain forecast!

Autumn weddings beach wedding Dorset Wedding 16th September Louise and Kieran’s Beach Wedding in Bournemouth

Friday’s Beach Wedding in Bournemouth was a bit of a surprise day for me. I hadn’t actually met Louise and Kieran before the wedding – and in fact we hadn’t even exchanged a phone conversation since early in the summer, due to the fact that they’d opted for a pre-wedding honeymoon and had spent the last …

Last Saturday I  headed to the village of Buckhorn Weston for the wedding of Jessica and Chris.
