Fun Dorset Wedding Photography

Welcome to the Fun Dorset Wedding Photography of {H} & {A}.


Bridal Preparation at Beaminster

Beaminster is a civil parish in Dorset. It used to be a linens and woollens manufacturing civil parish with abundant raw materials in the surrounding areas. Beaminster is noted for its beautiful architecture, particularly its tower, and so is the hair salon the bridal party was getting ready at. The architecture of the building is exquisite.  The entire bridal party was getting ready when I arrived. They were all in good spirits, with lots of laughter and joking.

It was a challenge to photograph the bridal party here. The room was big, with so many stories happening simultaneously. It’s the type of fun I relish and enjoy photographing!

Wedding in Toller Porcorum

Toller Porcorum is a civil parish in Dorset, near Dorchester, named after the village taken from the river. The Latin word ‘Porcorum’ means ‘pigs’. In the past, Toller Porcorum was known as Swines Toller. St Andrew & St Peters Church in Toller Porcorum has a magnificent drooping chancel (the part of the Church near the altar) and is situated on high ground.

The area also has evidence of a Medieval settlement and earthworks dating from the Prehistoric period. There are two reserves within the parish boundaries, home to various plants and animals, including fallow deer, otters, buzzards, hobby, kestrel, orchids, and rare butterflies.

Toller Porcorum is part of the West Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The bride and her friends returned to her parent’s home after hair and makeup. Oh, did I mention the reception was in the back garden of the house? Yes, it was, with a marquee.

The bride got ready, and then the bride, her father and the rest of the bridal party walked to the Church. Once the service was over, we made our way for some portraits, followed by the reception. The speeches were funny, and the main table was mostly in hysterics.

Thanks to my friend, Thiebauld, for flying over from France to document this fun Dorset Wedding.

Here are some of my favourite photos from this Dorset Wedding Photography;
