Lifeboat Station Engagement Photographs in Swanage
We first met Fiona and Adrian at their chosen wedding venue of Purbeck House Hotel to chat through their plans for their big day. Without revealing too much a sea-side theme was mentioned. Instead of traditional wedding favours Fiona and Adrian have kindly chosen to donate to the local lifeboat. So it seemed apt that we book in for some Swanage Lifeboat Engagement Photographs.
Swanage lifeboat is one of our chosen charities and has been saving lives in the seas around Swanage since 1875, 888 at the time of writing. We are often over in Poole creating RNLI College wedding photographs. In Swanage the new boat has recently moved into the impressive new lifeboat station in May this year. Now crewed by 37 local volunteers. So we recently joined the guys for a look around and to take some Swanage Lifeboat Engagement Photographs.
The station is well worth a visit, packed full of interesting history. The volunteers will guide you around, answering questions all against the incredible view back across Swanage bay.
As you can see it didn’t take long for Fiona to succumb to a case of the ‘chufties’. They were allowed to board the new lifeboat itself and explore below decks. These Swanage Engagement Photographs were a ‘dream realised’ for this fun-loving couple.
We then left through the holiday traffic for a walk around Corfe Castle where the happy pair were getting more excited the more they talked about their big day. They could barely keep their hands off each other. It looked like Adrian was doing his best to control himself to behave in public!
We finally descended onto the Swanage Steam Railway station with the beautiful view of the castle in the background.
We can’t wait to capture Adrian & Fiona’s wedding, which we anticipate will be a fun packed seaside adventure complete with beach buggies!
A big thanks to Dave Turnbull and all of the staff at Swanage Lifeboat Station. without them these Swanage Lifeboat Engagement Photographs wouldn’t be possible.
