The Italian Villa, Spring Wedding | Ali and Aimee

Back in April, I had the pleasure of photographing Ali and Aimee’s wedding at The Italian Villa in Dorset. A beautiful wedding venue tucked away in the gorgeous Compton Acres!

When I originally heard from Ali I was beyond excited that he and Aimee were considering me for photographing their wedding celebrations. I had known Ali for over 15 years as he was good friends of my younger brother back in the day! It was so special to get to know Ali and Aimee in the lead up to their wedding, we met for coffee and chatted through all their plans and visions for the day – which turned out exactly how they described it!

The day started with me capturing Aimee and her bridesmaids in the morning with an amazing bridal team, Grace Bailey Hair and Michaela Selene Makeup, and none other than Ru Paul on the TV which was a great morning distraction from the wedding jitters – it was so funny, I can’t believe I have never watched an episode before.

We then headed to The Italian Villa where Ali, his groomsmen and their guests were starting the celebrations. It was such a pleasure to photograph their day – a beautiful ceremony with a lovely reading from Ali’s granny, then leading straight into their drinks reception.

The day was just beautiful and here is a small selection of my favourites from the day for you to have a look at.
