We always look forward to capturing Italian Villa documentary wedding photos. The almost endless locations within the Villa and Compton Acres are stunning.

Italian Villa Documentary Wedding Photos of Bridal Preparation

We began the day with Edie and her bride squad at Harmans Cross near Corfe Castle. There was a buzz of activity as the girls prepared for Edie and Ashley’s big day. With six bridesmaid there was a lot of hair and make up to be styled. Outside waiting to escort the bridal party were Dorset Dub Hire‘s campervan ‘Lulu’ and 1965 Beetle ‘Lilah’. Both were decorated with wedding flowers of their own.
