The Wedding of Chris & Helen at Symondsbury Estate Dorset

A bright and breezy day in early May for the wedding of Chris and Helen at the wonderful Symondsbury Estate.  I photographed the whole day from bridal preparation in the morning through to the first dance in the evening. Despite the windy conditions there was plenty of sunshine so the guests could enjoy the lovely garden at the Tithe Barn.

As always, I photographed the day from a documentary perspective capturing lots of natural, candid moments throughout the day. I made time for formal family photographs as well as some intimate shots of the couple, some of which we took in front of the famous Colmers Hill as the sun was setting.

We met before the day and the couple made it clear they weren’t comfortable in front of the camera. With that in mind I kept them as relaxed as possible and captured the genuine happiness and love they have for each other with next to no direction.

Take a look below at a selection of images from the day.
