Our Best Wedding Photographs of 2016
After another full year of shooting weddings we had some time for an introspective look at our best wedding photos from 2016 and picked out some of our favourites (you can see our best wedding photographs of 2015 here).
Bridal Preparation Photographs
We find that our friendly, unobtrusive style really helps when it comes to capturing bridal preparations. 2016 saw a lots of bright wedding mornings with beautiful brides and bridesmaids, here is a selection of some from our best wedding photos.
Other experienced wedding suppliers can really make a positive difference to wedding morning preparations. In viewing our best wedding photos of 2016 we realised just how lucky we were to be working with such fantastic Wedding Hair Stylists and Wedding Make Up Artists such as Amazing Face, Cat Mutter, Blushing Brides Bournemouth, Bournemouth Bridal Make up, Tara Sanger, Laura Mackenzie, It’s All About Me, Dorchester Bridal Hair and Claire Bowring.
Wedding Dress Photographs
Over the years we have seen some jaw dropping wedding dresses. Our best wedding photos of 2016 did not disappoint, with the talents of Aubrey Rose Bridal, Courtyard Bridal, Twobirds Bridesmaid and Ruth Millian Bridal Couture.
Groom Preparation Photographs
There are times that I think that Murray must have a more challenging job shooting a wedding morning with the chaps. They are generally more subdued than the girls with less wedding accessories to deal with. Murray’s personable character comes into play allowing him to capture the story as it naturally unfolds, wherever that may be. As you can see by our best wedding photographs of 2016 that sometimes involves getting wet with a waterproof camera housing!
Wedding Transport Photographs
One of the joys of our job is working with beautiful classic vehicles at their best. In 2016 we saw brides helped on their way to the ceremony by Dream Day Campers, Superior Wedding Cars, Dorset Dub Hire and RR Elite Wedding cars.
Wedding Ceremony Photographs
As wedding photographers in Dorset we have the joy of working at many stunning local wedding venues. As you can see from our best wedding photos selection 2016 saw us shooting weddings further and further afield, including some wonderful destination wedding photographs in Slovenia.
It seems that every year our bride and grooms get happier and happier. We thought that one of our 2016 couples might actually explode with joy a couple of times their wedding day.
Wedding Flowers Photographs
Stunning wedding flowers from Dorset, Hampshire and beyond were supplied by Simply Flower, The Oak and Owl florists, Concept Flowers, Beyond the Gate Florist and West Dorset Flowers. We are constantly being blown away by what these talented people can achieve.
Wedding Food Photos
Wedding food is not only important for the wedding party but allows us to keep going, able to work the whole day, without time limits. This last year Beales Gourmet Catering’, The Salt Pig and Rabbit and Rose Catering have made our mouths water!
Wedding Cake Photographs
Taking of food, our 2016 weddings have produced some particularly stunning wedding cakes. From naked sponges draped in roses to a nautical number complete with a life-like octopus! Thanks to Abby’s Truly Scrumptious Cakes, Ice Gems of Swanage and Claire’s Cupcakery for sharing their skills.
Best Wedding Photos From Our 2016 Wedding Venues
Over the past 12 months we have worked at some stunning venues for the first time and re-visited some that are close to our hearts. Sopley Mill, Isle of Purbeck Golf Club, The Haven Hotel, Stockbridge Farm Barn, Eastbury Hotel , The Priory Wareham, Highcliffe Castle, The Italian Villa, Harbour Heights Hotel , Deans Court, Balmer Lawn, Sandbanks Hotel, Lulworth Castle, Froyle Park, Sunningdale Park and Plush Manor to name a few.
Wedding Party Photographs from our Best Wedding Photos of 2016
We have met some amazing people who came together to celebrate with friends and families. Thank you for the joy and laughter.
Best Wedding Photos of Wedding Couples
Our brides and grooms of 2016 will tell you that we really don’t like to pose them for couple shots. There is nothing better than witnessing the natural joy and happiness a of a wedding couple together on their big day.
Best Wedding Photos at Wedding Receptions
Wedding receptions tend to be more of a whirlwind of people, details, moments and emotions than any other part of a wedding. Our ability to blend in with the wedding party helps us to capture them all.
Wedding Entertainment Photographs
The soundtrack to our 2016 weddings was provided by The Bendeicts, The Coasters, Party Dexx, Brendan Mills, Teenage Kicks Wedding Band, Silver Service Singers, Pegasus Disco. Supplying a little extra magic the incredible Chris Piercy and Sean Haydon.
2016 saw us meet an exceptionally talented pair. Kat and Ed from KE wedding Films not only worked synchronously with us but also produced jaw dropping quality wedding films.
Best Wedding Photos of Wedding Evenings and Wedding Fireworks
The fantastic weather of 2016 wielded some gorgeous sunsets. We were privileged enough to see some truly spectacular firework displays later in the year.
A final thank you to all our Brides and grooms and everyone we have worked with in 2016. We look forward to working with you again soon!!
