Lea-Anne & David’s Wedding at Folke Manor, Dorset

It’s always super exciting to discover a new venue and yesterday I was pretty much in wedding heaven. We had a beautiful fresh sunny Septembers day, some lovely lovely people and an outside ceremony on a tiny island.

After making sure the legal part was all in order the day before, Lea & David chose to have a humanist ceremony at the gorgeous Folke Manor, Dorset. To kick the day off, Lea and the girls got ready in one of the cottages. When Lea got into her gorgeous dress, slipped on her pretty ballet pumps, she promptly took everyone’s breath away.

The day was amazing through and through, with a lovely relaxed atmosphere and some fantastic live music to boot. David comes from a family of musicians so it was no surprise when the grooms father played the violin beautifully as Lea walked down the hay bale lined aisle, looking just stunning.

The humanist ceremony was very moving – real, honest and personal. I love traditions at weddings although to be honest I am not sure I understand them all. Dont get me wrong, I love cake! But it is also wonderful to see things tweaked to make it a perfect fit for the bride and groom.

It is safe to say David and Lea ceremony was beautiful in so many ways their own personal vows, exchange of rings as well handfasting and jumping the broomstick made it all very touching.

As entertainment went David and Lea took centre stage for their first guitar riff as husband and wife which led onto their first dance as Deep Red took over for the evening dancing.

Thank you so much Lea & David for letting me capture your beautiful day for you, it was such a pleasure! I hope the honeymoon was everything you dreamed of, and more. x

Thank you Anna for being our dream photographer for our big day! You were absolutely fantastic and all of your photos are gorgeous! We’ve just finished taking a look through the full set and they’re everything we could have dreamed of and more. You truly are a gifted photographer and we feel soooo privelaged that we got to kidnap you for our day of mild chaos =)

To echo what Elaine said, you really were incognito, you’ve got so many photos that I didnt even know you’d taken and you must have been stood right next to me for a lot of them! Thank you again for all your hard work and devotion on our big day, and for providing us with the perfect set of photos to re-live our crazy wedding day!

Much love,

Flea (the blushing bride)

Oh Flea that is really the nicest message! It has made my day 🙂

I am THRILLED that you and David are so pleased with them. I cant wait to catch up with you both and find out your top images from the day. ( I love a little wedding chaos, it felt like I fitted right in )

love a very smily Anna (aka the secret Ninja) x x x

Oh wow – such gorgeous images, Anna – it looks like a stunning wedding.

Thanks Angela! It was stunning 🙂 Also beautifully simple in many ways, a real pleasure to be a small part of.

Beautiful pics Anna! It was so lovely to meet you and to experience a photographer who captured the essence of the wedding rather than tried to control it! Best wishes xx

Thank you Elaine, I always try to be as photojournalist as possible whilst keeping an element of control 🙂 A delicate balance, I love to tell the story of the couples day as it happens. Anna.xx
