To start their April spring wedding I met Lauren and her bridesmaid in the Airbnb she'd booked locally in Wimborne, it was a really relaxed morning with hair and make up being done for her and 6 bridesmaids by Grace Bailey Hair and LCC Beauty. Before it was time to get in their dresses, I drove down to the local pub close to Deans Court to get some snaps or Ash with his best men and groomsmen. Once make up and hair were complete Lauren's mum and I arrived meaning it was time to put the dress on.
Fortunately after a drizzly morning the ceremony still went ahead outside, at Deans Court they have a beautiful outdoor location in the garden of the house, which was perfect for a spring wedding. After a beautiful ceremony we set our way around to the front of the house to begin bubbles which Lauren & Ash had chosen as an alternative to confetti. We then moved straight in to their group photos around the back of the house, I always highly recommend getting your groups done as soon as possible after the ceremony, it avoids people wandering off and then you know they're done and can enjoy the rest of your drinks reception.
Due to Lauren & Ash having a larger group list I then whizzed them off for their own couples photos, this then allowed them some time and space together and also allowed us to guarantee we'd got some shots of them together incase we were unable to do to a change in the weather later on.
Deans Court have your wedding breakfast in their spacious marquee area which allows you the freedom to decorate as much or as little as you please, these two decided to go with sage green with eucalyptus and white roses to give it a very modern and fresh look.
After some great speeches, especially the best mans, I whizzed the couple and their wedding party out for their photos. Evening shots with your wedding party can be great as you get the perfect soft lighting but also it means your group shots earlier in the day aren't so dragged out and with these lot you know you can have some fun. Lauren & Ash had also hired Dom Balls Films for the day, who was a pleasure to work with, so we got the group to do some silly walking resulting in some great laughs and fab shots.
Then came along the evening fun starting with the cake cut and first dance, followed by a beautiful Michael Bublé song sung by the best man for the couple as a surprise. The evening ended with some sparklers and it was an all round amazing day!
Luckily for me I had two more weddings booked throughout the year at Deans Court and this wedding confirmed to me that they'd be just as amazing!
