Dorset Wedding Photography – Jenny & Sam’s Kingston Country Courtyard Wedding

Err wow, another stunning wedding…not sure where to begin?! At the beginning, I guess!  Jenny saw me photograph her friend’s wedding and liked what she saw (hoorah – always a nice compliment!) so asked me to photograph her big day.  She told me she was marrying Sam in Kingston Country Courtyard…I live just down the road from Kingston (Surrey) so thought it was a nice local wedding.  Turns out it’s in Dorset, near Corfe Castle.  This is further than I normally travel for weddings but she sounded so nice (and I’m rubbish at saying no) that I happily accepted her invitation to photograph her wedding.  Boy, am I glad I did!

Corfe Castle is a stunning part of Dorset, and Kingston Country Courtyard has a most fantastic view from the bottom of the garden – you can see the castle and right over the Dorset countryside to the sea.  I imagine it’s beautiful on any day, but on this August day there was barely a cloud in the sky and the view was gorgeous (and we got stunning soft, warm light in the ‘golden hour’ before sunset – hoorah!).

The combination of a great wedding venue, sunny day and a lovely couple always makes me a very happy wedding photographer.  This wedding ticked the first two boxes, but what about the last one?!  Well, this was more than covered of course – Jenny and Sam are two of the most sweet, smiley people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing!  Neither were huge fans of having their photo taken but were so cute with each other that you couldn’t tell.  I was there to photograph them (separately) opening wedding cards/gifts they’d given each other before the ceremony – these were lovely moments, and one of them shed a tear…I won’t say who ;).

Jenny and Sam had an outdoor ceremony (which I always love), followed by a drinks (and ice cream!) reception in the garden.  Kingston Country Courtyard has a lovely relaxed vibe, making everyone feel very at home.  After a delicious wedding meal (with hog roast – yum) and some great speeches it was on to the dancing.  The band (whose name I didn’t catch, sorry!) played some fab rock and roll, and there was some impressively enthusiastic dancing.

Congratulations on your perfect day guys. x
