Christchurch Priory Ceremony & A New Forest Reception | Jess and Al’s Wedding

“We’ve only just had a chance to sit down together and go through all the photos (!!) so let me just say, what absolutely beautiful photos you’ve captured. They made us remember all the feelings of the day so perfectly. I don’t think we could have asked for anything more! We’re so so SO happy with them. And I’m glad you love them too, you made us feel so easy and natural all day, absolutely amazing.”

Jess and Al reached out to me about their wedding day plans just over 2 years ahead of their date in July 2018! Being super organised they wanted to secure the most important suppliers to them as soon as possible. We met for a drink and chatted through their dreams of their wedding day and the photography services I could offer them. To say we got on like a house on fire was an understatement, and when they contacted me to say they wanted to go ahead and book me I was so over the moon! Their wedding day didn’t disappoint – it was amazing!

They chose to get married at the beautiful Christchurch Priory, an incredible parish church in Dorset and hosted their wedding reception at Bartley Lodge in the New Forest. The whole day was amazing, super relaxed and that definitely came down to how they had planned the day and had been leading up to the wedding. Nothing was forgotten, it all ran smoothly, everyone was having a great time, just the perfect wedding day.

They also had an awesome team of suppliers – all of which I love and highly recommend! Fiona from FLC Hair and Makeup did such an amazing job, Jess and her bridesmaid looked incredible. Lauren from Concept Flowers made the most beautiful summer bouquets and florals arrangements for the venue. Emma from Fancie Buns made the cake and macaroons….which were a taste-sensation as my husband would say!! Harry from Harry Wedding Films who I have worked with a couple of times now and is just the loveliest guy, and a new introduction to a band called Entree who were AMAZING and I would recommend to everyone – I think they are hands down my favourite band I have ever seen/heard at a wedding!

Here is a small selection of images from Jess and Al’s wedding, I hope you enjoy them!
