Harmans Cross Village Hall Wedding Photographs of Bridal Preparations

We began this day of Harmans Cross Village Hall wedding photographs at Sarah’s parents house. It was a hive of activity with hair being styled and make up being applied. It was clear that lots of thought had been put into the details for this special day. Even Sarah’s shoes had been detailed with the words ‘Wifey for Lifey’ on the soles. Soon after arrived the wedding flowers delivered from April Flowers . The bright sunshine shone through the windows lighting up the wedding morning activities. Once the bridesmaids had got into their dresses it was time for the bride to follow suit.

Harmans Cross Village Hall Wedding Photographs of the Groom’s Wedding Morning

A short distance across Swanage I found the chaps at the Castleton Hotel. Once it was conformed that everyone had the correct size trousers they began to get wedding ready. All wore matching blue suits with the groomsmen in pink ties and the groom with a paler tie with matching pocket square. Daniel had little gift for his groomsmen, personalised glasses and something to go in said glasses. He also received a gift from his wife to be, a gold Tissot watch, the final piece to his wedding attire. They all headed across the road to the Crows Nest pub were they enjoyed a quick drink and meet other family and friends. Button holes were given out and pinned in place before a mini bus arrived to transport everyone to St Mary Church in Swanage.

St Mary’s Church Wedding Photographs  or Wedding Ceremony

Guests gathered outside the church before being directed inside to take their places. First to arrive were the bridesmaids who waited out of the wind. Sarah arrived with her father in the off white convertible wedding car. With everyone now in place she paused in the entrance way to the church to gather herself . Daniel checked his watch nervously as he waited.

The bridesmaids lead the way followed by the bride, arm in arm with her father. Once at the front he confirmed that he was here to give away her hand in marriage. In between two readings the happy couple made their promises to each other and exchanged rings. After the paperwork was taken care of the new Mr and Mrs made their way back down the aisle. Outside the guests gathered armed with confetti, which showered down on them with a little rain as they came out.

Harmans Cross Village Hall Wedding Photographs of Wedding Reception

The newly weds were taken away in the wedding car while many of the guests took the Swanage Railway steam train to Harmans Cross enjoying the Purbeck countryside on the way. Having arrived first they had time to check out the decorated village hall before many of the guests had arrived. Details varied from a handmade wooden order of the day notice and signing panel to sweet filled bags of wedding favours from the newly weds, fantastic for Harmans Cross village hall wedding photographs.

With the weather much improved we stole Sarah and Daniel away and took them down to Swanage beach for some couple photos.This was the first chance they has to talk just too each other since becoming husband and wife. After capturing some shots at various points along Swanage sea front we returned them to their guests.
