Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Photographs with Carly & Marc
We had met Carly and Marc a couple of times at their gorgeous wedding venue Dudsbury Golf Club and saw just how photogenic they are at their Hengistbury Head engagement shoot. So it was with great excitement that we set out to join them for their Dudsbury Golf Club wedding photographs.
Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Morning Photographs
I arrived on the wedding morning at Carly’s family home to find the girls well prepared for the wedding day. Makeup and hair products, flowers, food, drinks, mirrors, clothing and bags were placed throughout the tables and chairs in the huge conservatory.With the thin cloud cover the conservatory glass worked as a huge soft box. The perfect natural lighting with which to capture the girls as they whizzed from one position to another.
Carly and her bridesmaids were wearing white silk dressing gowns with their roles in Disney lettering on the back. Occasionally dashing about with the go-pro that the wedding videographer Joe Green had left for them to use.
Marc had scored some serious brownie points by overwhelming Carly with a gorgeous gift of a Swarovski Crystal Cinderella, a bottle of her favourite perfume and a heartfelt card full of Disney love quotes!
Upstairs I shot Carly’s beautiful wedding dress backlit amongst the striking blue bridesmaid’s dresses. The sound of laughter and singing echoed throughout the house. Carly had chosen lovely custom coat hangers marking the girl’s names and wedding date.
I noticed Scarlet, the youngest of Carly’s bridesmaids (who had just arrived after being to school!) admiring the wedding flowers. Carly’s gran had performed a miracle with her stunning ivory silk flower bouquets and button holes.
All of the ladies now looked incredibly stunning, in contrast to Carly’s father who after a morning of running around helping out was still in a towel and shaving foam! With her veil in place and her bridesmaids having recovered from their first sight of the wedding dress the girls were now ready for the Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding.
Rodger from Christchurch Wedding Cars arrived with Jasmine, a hand-built Branford Elite Tourer Deluxe, the most amazing stretched wedding car we have ever seen Meanwhile Murray joined Marc and the chaps at home preparing for the Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding. A bit of last-minute PlayStation was enjoyed in-between bouts of getting ready. Personalised cufflinks and socks were added to their outfits as was Marc’s shiny new watch (a present from his wife to be).
Wedding Morning Photographs at Dudsbury Golf Club
The ‘wedding Polaroid’ camera was first utilised for a ‘chaps’ picture before they leaving for the Dudsbury Golf Club wedding. Marc and the boys borrowed a club from the pro shop and headed off to the driving range to whack a few golf balls.
Back inside Dudsbury Golf Club-House the wedding ceremony room was beautifully decorated. Stood between the aisles under the huge chandelier with a view across the golf course Marc looked a little nervous. He soon found himself greeting the arriving guests and sipping water on the balcony while he waited for his bride to arrive.
Outside Dudsbury Golf Club the bridesmaids in blue arrived in the wedding car and waited for Carly and her father. Marc and the guests waited upstairs while listening to wedding saxophonist Claire Manners. Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Ceremony Photographs
As Carly entered her Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Marc was not the only person dealing with nervous anticipation. The silence in the room was only interrupted by the occasional sobbing guest. As she approached, Carly’s huge infectious smile broke the mood and the room was filled with joyful smiles.
Carly and Mark then boarded a wedding golf buggy, decorated with ribbons and a flower heart and headed off into the golf course. They were shortly followed by myself and videographer clinging on to our own buggy.

On their return they were greeted by applause from their guests. Everyone enjoyed a drinks reception against the green countryside view before headed onto the tee for some quick group photographs.
In the meantime the wedding ceremony space upstairs had been transformed for the wedding breakfast. Blue bows decorated the chairs and Lilly’s in water the tables. The gorgeous four-tier wedding cake stood proud next to the top table, which in turn was adorned with a hand-made wooden ‘Mr and Mrs Dyer’ sign in a Disney themed font.
Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Breakfast
Once wedding breakfast had been called the guests discovered their funny nose clip cards, with which all ages had fun posing for pictures around the tables. Carly and Mark entered to a standing ovation and the wedding speeches began.
Carly’s father led the way with a speech that created more smiles and laughter thought out the room. Marc continued the humour and took a look back to his stag do and the interestingly named ale ‘Dead Pony Club’. He made the stag group drink it for a toast even though he stuck to drinking bubbly!
Dudsbury Golf Club Wedding Evening Reception
After wedding breakfast Carly and Mark cut their cake set against the setting sun. We headed outside back onto the golf buggies. A short drive around the golf course later and we took some sunset images of the happy couple by a lake.
Meanwhile Party Dexx wedding DJ had set up in the ceremony room as the golf club staff expertly cleared for the evening ahead.
On our return it was time to perform the first dance. With the glow of disco lighting Marc and Carly gracefully swirled about the dance floor happily gazing into each other’s eyes. At the end of the song all of the guests joined them.
As well as the music and dancing there was a casino set up in the corner of the room from Absolute Fun Casino complete with roulette wheel and card tables.
We left the happy couple and all the guests dancing and gambling the night away.
