Every so often, my job as a Bournemouth wedding photographer takes me a little further afield than usual. Such as this wedding for the ever-so-friendly Sarah Jane & Oliver.
I met this adorable couple whilst working with the Swanage Carnival, since then they have moved away but never really lost touch.
The ceremony was held all the way up in Surrey, in the huge and stunning church of St Annes in Bagshot. A gorgeous well lit venue, perfect to get those all important shots with ease.
With the vows exchanged, and the group photos taken, it was time to head off to the stunning Hollycombe Working Steam Fair. They had booked the whole place to themselves and trust me, it really is a place to behold.
Most weddings are beautiful, stunning, adorable… But few leave you coming away thinking “Well that was different!!”. This wedding achieved exactly that!
On arrival we all assembled on the platform of the small steam train that navigates its way around the grounds of the museum, to await the arrival of the bride and groom.
With Sarah Jane and Oliver both being in the theater business, it came of no surprise that they had chosen this venue, and of course, the entrance they made by arriving on the steam train raised smiles and cheers and probably a resounding “encore” if that didn’t mean the train backing up and arriving once again.
We were all treated to a lovely meal before heading out to the Steam Fair to enjoy the rides and get some photographs in a style that I will probably never take again.
The bride and groom on the big wheel, the carousel.. Simply amazing and so privileged to have been asked to be a part of it.
Thank you Sarah Jane and Oliver from both of us.
We hope that your images that we have taken for you give you lasting happy memories of your amazing day.
