Best Wedding Photographs of 2017

After finishing off our two Christmas weddings we have taken stock of the last 12 months. We have put together a selection of our best wedding photographs of 2017

2017 was a crazy year with all kinds of different weddings for us to work at…..

A Harry Potter wedding, a Rock and roll wedding, a wedding with 28 bridesmaids! A same sex wedding with Helicopter ride and barn dance and Punch and Judy show. We will never forget the pirate theme wedding in Lulworth Castle. Lots of rum, a dog called Rum and Captain Jack Sparrow pouring rum!

As well as capturing amazing wedding photographs in 2017 we both got married (not to each other!!). A near disaster when the original marquee for my wedding was trashed by a storm! Enter Western Marquees  to the rescue. Needless to say it turned out to be the best day ever!!

Best Wedding Photographs of 2017 – New Wedding Venues

Last year took us far and wide throughout the UK from Dorset and Hampshire to Bristol and London We were fortunate to have worked some stunning venues that were new to us.

The Trafalgar Tavern in London  is perfect for weddings, the grand space of the Nelson Banqueting Rooms overlooks the Thames, offering gorgeous views of London to compliment the plush surroundings. A world away from the Purbeck countryside Amy and Neil’s Greenwich wedding day is a definite for inclusion in our best wedding photographs of 2017.

The  Coppleridge Inn  in North Dorset is set within 15 acres of meadows and woodland, overlooking unbroken views of the Blackmore  Vale. Carly & Alex’s subtly dinosaur themed wedding photographs are going to stick in our minds for a while!

Amy & Dan’s The Old Vicarage wedding on the Dorset Hampshire border was in a gorgeous country House venue set in the heart of 10 acres of stunning gardens and woodlands.

Scaplen’s Court wedding venue is a truly unique hidden gem in Poole. This beautifully unique Grade I listed ancient building, offered a romantic and inspiring setting for Amy & Dan’s wedding photographs.
