Jack and Katie had their gorgeous New Year's Eve wedding in the picturesque village of Corfe in Dorset. We had met Jack and Katie earlier in the year when we were photographing their friend's wedding.
It was delightful to see Katie during her Bridal Prep, she was so excited.
Katie's Bridal Prep was just up the road from Corfe at Kingston Country Courtyard where she had a sumptuous bridal suite with lots of light and plenty of room and a four-poster bed.
They were married in the Parish Church right in the middle of the "chocolate box" village of Corfe which still had its beautiful street Christmas decorations on display.
We were very grateful to the National Trust for letting us shoot some bride and groom portraits in the gate house of Corfe Castle so we could have a photograph of them with the distinctive silhouette of the Castle's Keep.
We were also able to shoot a few wide shots of the happy couple on the cobbled bridge to the castle with the village in the background...
...plus a tight shot of Jack and Katie with the pastel shape of their church in the background.
It was then back to Kingston Country Courtyard where they had their Reception and First Dance in a very nice barn conversion.
When we had asked Jack earlier as to what sort of dance he had planned...he said, "Nothing special"...to start with things went according to his plan...
...then THIS happened and there were cheers of delight from all their guests.
Jack and Katie are a lovely couple and they got married in a very special part of the world and on a very memorable day...many of us husbands might wish we had an equally memorable date for our wedding anniversaries...no excuses Jack!
