Chris & Rosey's Wedding - Lulworth Castle, Dorset

It seems like ages ago that I was in sunny Doset to photograph Chris & Rosey's wedding at Lulworth Castle. I did a reccie the day before, starting at Poole Harbour and the gorgeous Hotel du Vin where Rosey and girls were getting ready, and ending at the stunning Castle which was very Spring-like - lots of little lambs frolicking about and a mass of daffodils. Absolutely beautiful.

On Saturday morning the girls visited the Aveda salon (I LOVE Aveda salons) which was bustling but very calm. It was really nice to be able to hang out with them all and it meant I learnt who was who. Lots of giggling and fun from them all and Rosey's hair was breathtaking. I then dropped in on the guys for a quick lemonade at the pub before heading to the Castle and the simply stunning Chapel within the grounds. Lots of merriment as guests arrived and were welcomed into the Chapel to beautiful sounds from Venetia on her harp.

Samuel & Abby were brilliant as they headed down the aisle followed by Rosey & her Father and finally the three girls. Father Dorricott is part of Rosey's family and married Rosey's Parents so it was really wonderful that he married Chris & Rosey. Readings from Patrick, bidding prayers by Liz, Jo & Tom as witnesses, Summer delivering the communion wine, and finally William on the organ for the entire service - he did an amazing job. All in all it was a very personal and elegant service, a delight to watch.

After some group photographs on the steps of the Castle everyone enjoyed the champagne reception while I took a few shots of just Rosey & Chris. The dining hall looked amazing with the most stunning display of flowers and some lovely touches on the tables, especially the champagne theme. Chris & Rosey entered to great applause and the meal went without a hitch with staff carrying hundreds of plates up from the crypt up a set of perilous steps. Very impressive. The speeches went down really well with Peter, Chris & Tom encouraging much laughter. I loved Chris & Rosey's reactions. Cake cutting and spectacular first dance followed. They really did have some smooth moves and the final flourish from Chris had everyone cheering like crazy.

A truly fabulous day filled with love and laughter with some wonderful memories for me. I liked how your families and friends all had as much fun as you two - everywhere I looked people were laughing. Huge congratulations & do keep in touch with all of your news. x
