It’s very unusual for me to have not met the groom before the pre-wedding shoot but in this instance however that was the case. Jamie works abroad and has also recently had a operation, so this was the first time for all of us to get together since Abi booked me as their wedding photographer.
We started off in Flirt, a very funky cafe in Bournemouth. Over coffee Jamie and I got to know each other. The couple were full of giggles and laughter, following some furniture rearranging and temporary celebrity status, we made our way to Bournemouth gardens. With much humour and lots of laughs, we chatted about the wedding plans and came to the conclusion we all preferred fun and natural photos of ourselves.
I am very much looking forward to documenting their special day at the fantastic Dorset wedding venue the Italian Villa (Compton Acres, Poole) in a few weeks.
