I met up with Michelle and Sarah the other day for their pre wedding photography shoot in Bournemouth, I’m due to be their civil partnership photographer in a few weeks. They have only recently moved to Hampshire and previously lived in London. So we exchanged stories and great places to visit in Dorset and London. They used to visit the New Forest at the weekends and stay at Careys Manor, this is also where Michelle proposed to Sarah and the wedding venue for their marriage celebration.
We arranged the pre wedding shoot to take place on the beach as they both love the seaside. On our adventure we explored the beautiful Bournemouth gardens and the beach. I took advantage of the new rainbow coloured beach huts and the ladies coordinated stripy pink tops (they both deny it was on purpose). After some shenanigans on the groins we made our way back. The sky had become quite dramatic with the sun hidden behind the clouds.
It was a fun pre wedding shoot, Michelle and Sarah are a lovely couple and I’m very much looking forward to documenting their civil partnership.
