A really brilliant day was had by all at Bella and Charlie’s excellent Studland and Wilkswood wedding in Purbeck, as is certainly evident in their wedding photos. Both vets and with Charlie working closely with a local dairy herd, they have a special affinity for the handsome rolling hills of the Purbeck. Their wedding was a celebration of Dorset rural life as well as their love for each other, being set in the heart of Purbeck at the superb Wilkswood Wedding Venue. A Dorset wedding venue like no other, Wilkswoood offers phenomenal views, a field and some truly masterful event organisers.
Bella and Charlie’s wedding was packed with everything from a tuk-tuk, to festival flags, camping, hay bales and local Swanage postcards as place settings – not forgetting a bovine themed wedding cake, I kid you not! This all made for an extraordinary day filled with a terrific energy; this overflowed from the packed St Nicholas Church Studland (complete with a very forgiving vicar who let me stand practically on top of him to get the right shots) to the beautifully staged marquee reception, laced with fresh sweet peas and paper lanterns.
A bright September day gifted the couple with sunshine, although the breeze was somewhat enthusiastic, sending clouds racing across a blue Purbeck sky, which for a wedding photographer with a constant eye on the light in each shot, definitely kept me on my toes.
Add to all of this a hog-roast, some wonderful locally made canapés and a really great band and it’s easy to see why Bella and Charlie’s wedding was such a fantastic day for all involved, including the wedding photographer. Perhaps some of my favourite shots (aside from the Brides stunning yellow shoes) were taken in the evening with Bella and Charlie sharing a quiet minute together outside, with the lights of the marquee and enjoyment of their guests glowing in the background. Huge congratulations Bella and Charlie and thank you for letting me be a part of your extraordinarily charming wedding day.
