Deans Court Wedding of Bethan and Gareth in Wimborne Dorset

Bethan and Gareth's August wedding placed me on familiar ground as their wedding was in Wimborne, just a stones throw from my studio.

The wedding ceremony was on the National Trust's Kingston Lacy Estate at St Stephen church set in the beautiful Dorset countryside, Bethan and her father arrived in style with a horse drawn carriage from their home in Wimborne. Upon arrival, they were greeted at the entrance by Bethan's uncle who conducted the ceremony.

The reception was a short carriage ride away at the stunning Deans Court in the heart of Wimborne. Deans Court is one of Dorset's most idyllic private homes dating back to the 11th Century. The wedding marquee was setup in the grounds of the manor house which provided a stunning backdrop for the romantic images of the couple, their family and friends.

Luxury Cruise Portraiture Aboard the Serenity

The month of May this year has been a very exciting and very busy month for me. I was invited to be the Master Photographer in residence aboard the luxury cruise liner, "Crystal Serenity". My background as a fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photographers qualified me to take part in the exclusive Crystal portrait masters program, guests aboard the cruise are able to take advantage of a fellowship level photographer for bespoke portrait commissions.

My wife Julie and I spent a few nights in New York City before setting off on our North Atlantic cruise adventure. The once in a lifetime cruise would take in Rhode Island, Boston, St John's Newfoundland, Reykjavik in Iceland, the Faroe Islands and Norway before finally finishing in Dover.

Though I can't include guests portrait at this stage I have included some of the sights along the way, including the church in Rhode island where Jackie Kennedy and JFK were married on September 12th 1953. Memorable sights I will remember from the 16 day trip were the sailing up the Norwegian fjords, the geysers and dramatic scenery of Iceland. Each day there was something new to see, including killer Whales swimming alongside the ship.

The cruise Julie and I will remember for many years, the level and quality of service aboard the Crystal Serenity was second to none, it was truly a pleasure and a privilege to meet and be able to create unique portraiture for discerning clientele.

I am now looking forward to get back into the full swing of this Summer's wedding and loose the excess few pounds put on as a result of the amazing cuisine prepared by the world class chefs aboard.

Beautiful Chewton Glen Wedding:

Chewton Glen Hotel set in the New Forest is a beautiful wedding venue, with stunning grounds combined with legendary attention to detail for every occasion.
Nicky and Chris were married in their local church, All Saints Branksome Park. After their ceremony the couple left in a traditional horse drawn wedding carriage en route to the Chewton Glen.
Nicky and Chris selected the perfect colour for the bridesmaids which blended in beautifully with the interior decor of the Lake suite.
