Beach wedding theme – documentary wedding photography
Sandbanks is such a beautiful location for a wedding reception. The view from the Sandbanks Hotel was an epic seascape looking over the beach to the Purbeck’s in Dorset. The above photo features some of the table decorations that Vix & Simon hand made themselves.
The couple requested some organised group photos on the beach as well as some more playful fun ones. The friends and family encouraged the hat throwing, it became a bit of competition as to who could throw the highest. However a strong cross wind made for a difficult catch! Best man’s speech deserved an oscar! The whole room was in tears with laughter including myself! There was some illegal betting on the speech lengths, the cash pot was quite high for the winner!
When the nighttime celebrations began, one of the couples friends DJ’d, the room was transformed into a nightclub. After the first dance a really good band played modern rock & pop classics, everyone was having a great time. Really enjoyed capturing all the fun of the celebration. It was an amazing day and very honoured to have been chosen as their documentary wedding photographer.
There was so many great moments, it was hard to choose my favourites, here’s a selection from the wedding reception:
Oh! and you can play spot the iPad in this set of photos 😉
