If Capa Shot Weddings!
April 28, 2009
I love featuring weddings from the UK. Have a gander at this little beauty sent in by British photographer
Phillip Allen. They look like that had a lot of fun…
Petia and Chris married in March at Poole Guildhall in Dorset, UK.
One of the most exciting aspects of the day for me as a photographer
was a beach landing they made at Studland on the Isle of Purbeck,
where their reception was held. After the ceremony they sailed out of
Poole Harbour on a 40 foot yacht with family and close friends (who
own and crewed the yacht) with a small outboard craft trailing
behind. As we approached land, bride, groom, photographer and yacht’s
skipper alighted the outboard and headed for the beach. The water was
somewhat on the nippy side it not quite yet being Spring in the
region but it added an exhilarating stimulus to an already exciting
method of moving between wedding ceremony and reception. Prior to the
big day I’d been researching Robert Capa’s beach landing shots,
though thankfully we weren’t under fire on the day in question
itself! A friend did retrospectively suggest adopting the approach of
Method Wedding Photography though, stating that I should have ordered
the groom (and by consequence the bride) to hit the surf face down!

Coastal Cornish Wedding: Betty & Johnny
Dot and Lucy
May 24, 2013
I'm not really supposed to have favourites, but Betty might just be one of the most beautiful and radiant brides I've ever seen... I am totally smitten with her 1940s vintage lace dress (bought on eBay for £40!) and that adorable white faux flower crown and simple bouquet combo. Total perfection. She married Johnny in Cornwall during April and the wedding only cost £5000.
Southend Pier Wedding: Lorna & Dave
May 25, 2013
Lorna & Dave were married in Southend in April. Their ceremony took place at The Culture Centre, right on the pier, and their reception was at Ocean Beach, a restaurant on the beach. "The theme for our wedding was British seaside with a touch of vintage", wrote Lorna. "The beautiful blue sky and sunshine really made the day that extra bit special. It was amazing! The children were able to run about and play on the beach at the reception and the view from the decking at Ocean Beach was incredible."

Antonia and Harvey had a three day wedding at Roskilly's Ice Cream Farm in Cornwall.

The weekend happened to be the hottest of the year which couldn't have been more perfect for their outdoor, ice cream farm celebration!

Well here's something you don't see everyday! The wedding of Joanna and Stephen was held at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay, but instead of just walking down the aisle, Joanna and her father zipwired from the clifftop above down on to the beach. AH-MAZING!
A Backyard Beach Wedding Planned in Three Weeks: Nellie & Matt
September 13, 2012
Nellie & Matt planned their Whistable wedding in just three short weeks. They wanted something small, something personal and something relaxed. They found the amazing Beacon House, right on the beach, for their ceremony and were able to use the back garden of the bride's brother's holiday cottage for the reception.
"Serendipity and our amazingly supportive family and friends brought our wedding together in just 3 weeks," the bride began. "Matt and I had been engaged for 3 years, neither of us are planners but we had a clear idea of the kind of wedding we wanted, a relaxed, seaside celebration centred around our close friends, family, good food and drink. But every option we explored in Cambridge and Brighton, our two home cities, in one way or another tied us into expensive packages, so we put off the wedding and skipped to the baby."
