HANNAH & BRADS AWESOME DEANS COURT WEDDING
On May the 28th, we had the huge pleasure of photographing Hannah & Brads beautiful wedding day.
The day started with Dave and I heading out separate ways. Dave headed over to the beautiful Deans Court https://www.deanscourt.org/the-venue while I headed out to Brads house to photograph the boys getting ready.
Dave joined Hannah and her Fab bridesmaids for a beautiful morning getting ready in the picturesque cottage inside the grounds of Deans court. The girls looked stunning as they prepped for the big day. Hannah’s dad, Chris, found it hard to hold back the tears on seeing his daughter in her dress but held his composure for the big day to come.
Meanwhile, Seb joined Brad and his many groomsmen back in Bournemouth. He captured the organised chaos of morning, then off to a neighbour’s house to photograph the groom’s party in their garden. After a few nerve calming drinks and some informal shots in front of the wedding car, they headed out to Deans court for the big day.
Arriving at the venue, we were blown away by how beautiful it was. The earliest parts of house date back to 1705, although you would be forgiven to think it was built in the 19th Century.
The ceremony takes place outdoors under a pergola looking back out to the lawn where you get a perfect view of the bridal party as they walk down the aisle.
Brad and his best man waited eagerly as the stunning bridesmaids led Hannah together with a very proud father, Chris, down the aisle.
As Chris gave the hand of his daughter to Brad the emotion couldn’t be hidden.
After a short ceremony the couple had tied the knot and headed down the aisle to the reception, followed by confetti and bubbles
Family photos followed in the court grounds and with help from the court staff (thank you for the massive ladder) we shot the group image.
A super relaxed afternoon was followed by the wedding breakfast and speeches, which were wonderful.
We decided to take the bride and groom together with their party for a few photographs around the house, notably on the stone bridge, which is one of the most beautiful spots for a great picture. Then back up by the lake to play with smoke grenade’s, which was epic fun!
After taking a few images of Hannah and Brad by the house we headed back to the reception for the cake cutting and first dance.
A perfect day for a perfect couple , we wish you all the best with your new life together and look forward to catching up soon.
As a final note, we have to say 'thank you' to the staff at Deans Court for being so helpful and welcoming. We really hope we can work with you guys again.
A Fab day.
