Florence and Richard’s Studland Bay House Wedding Photographs
We have been waiting a long time to capture Florence and Richard’s Studland Bay House Wedding Photographs. Though they hail from Australia, the couple decided to honor their long-awaited union in the enchanting landscapes of Dorset. Originally planned before the pandemic, their wedding day had been years in the making. Last autumn, we captured their love story on the windy sands of Studland Beach during their engagement shoot, under entirely different weather conditions.
Nestled on the picturesque shores of Studland Bay in Dorset, Studland Bay House set the stage for a fairytale wedding that will forever be etched in the hearts of Florence and Richard. We love everything about Studland Bay House, the venue, the location, the staff, the wedding photos. So when they recommend us to their brides and grooms it gives us a fuzzy feeling and we get excited about all of the unique photographic opportunities there.

As the excitement of the day dawned, Florence and her bridesmaids found themselves basking in the delightful atmosphere of the bridal suite.

The talented team from Amazing Face worked their magic, expertly styling hair and makeup for the bride and her bridal party. Dresses were lovingly prepared, with creases carefully steamed out, and the bridesmaids donned their matching blue dresses.
The exquisite wedding flowers and bouquets, supplied by Martha and the Meadow arrived.

Meanwhile, Richard and his best man readied themselves downstairs at Studland Bay House before embarking on a short coastal walk to The Bankes Arms pub.
Here the rest of the groomsmen had assembled. A morning pint served as the perfect way to quell any nerves before they set off on the brief journey to St. Nicolas’ Church in Studland Village.

St. Nicolas’ Church in Studland Village served as the perfect backdrop for the heartfelt wedding ceremony. We have loved shooting weddings in Studland there in the past. Richard and his best man stood at the head of the aisle, anxiously awaiting Florence’s arrival. With great delight, the bridesmaids and flower children guided a beaming Florence and her father down the aisle. The proceedings were watched over by guests seated in the ancient church’s aisle and balcony. The wedding ceremony itself was a blend of relaxed and humorous moments. Laughter and merrily sung hymns resonated throughout the church. The couple’s son, Charlie, added his unique charm to proceedings playfully gesturing at the vicar throughout. After the exchange of vows and rings, Florence and Richard stepped into the bright sunshine. They left the church grounds surrounded by a cloud of blue and white confetti.
Seaside Drinks Reception And Group Photographs
Following the ceremony, Florence and Richard arrived first at Studland Bay House. They lovingly strolled hand in hand, through the breathtaking grounds toward the sea vista. Overlooking the sea and beach, wedding drinks were served, and guests enjoyed the picturesque view. Florence and Richard had a delightful surprise in store for their guests. The ever-accommodating Studland Bay House team supplied “Florence’s Cockles and Winkles” stall. They offered delectable canapes, smoked salmon, fresh local mussels, and prawns, complementing the drinks perfectly. Against the backdrop of azure sea, blue sky, and the iconic white chalk cliffs of Old Harry Rocks, we captured the couple’s group photographs, showcasing their happiness and the stunning surroundings. A brief walk through Studland Bay House’s enchanting woodland allowed us to capture Florence and Richard together in the sunshine.

The mouth-watering wedding breakfast, prepared by the talented chefs at Studland Bay House, delighted all, while the attentive staff ensured a seamless experience for the wedding party. The thoughtful couple had even organised childminders to care for the guests’ children, so parents could relax and enjoy the festivities.
As an intermission, guests relished the splendid grounds and partook in garden games before returning to the marquee for the much-awaited best man’s speech, filled with love and laughter.
Wedding Evening At Studland Bay House
As the sun began to set, Florence and Richard took a quiet moment together. They re-joining their guests on the top lawn for the cake-cutting ceremony.
As a unique twist, their cake cutting utilised a creation made from layers of different cheeses, topped with fresh fruit. Inside the marquee, the atmosphere shifted to focus on the dance floor. Truly Medley Deeply’s two-piece band set the perfect tone for the night. With wide smiles, Florence and Richard gracefully swirled on the dance floor, surrounded by their loved ones. The guest’s crazy dance moves amplified the energy and joy of the evening. Against the stunning sunset outside, we captured the couple in their element, both on the dance floor and in the serene countryside. As the night progressed, Florence and Richard were lifted onto friends’ shoulders. They were paraded around the dance floor in a jubilant display of love and celebration. With hearts and cameras full of joy and laughter echoing in the starry night sky, we departed the wedding, leaving behind the unforgettable glow of happiness at Studland Bay House.
