A couple of weeks ago I had the great privilege of photographing this stunning wedding at the beautiful Christchurch Harbour Hotel in Dorset. Ami and Urs have become good friends of mine between the time that they booked me and now and in the last couple of months I’ve got to know them well – Urs even got me into Kitesurfing, which has become my new favorite thing to do!!
Ami & Urs’ wedding was absolutely full of lovely hand made details – the amount of effort that the family and friends had put into making the day as beautiful as possible was truly inspiring. Ami’s mother did an incredible job making the bridesmaids dresses, bouquets and cake from scratch, as well as all of the table decor and favours.
The day was full of emotion, and it was clear that this couple have made an impression on a great many people through their lives. Their friends and family traveled all the way from New Zealand (bride’s side) and Germany (groom’s side) for this special wedding.
Christchurch Harbour Hotel offers a stunning waterside setting, a stones throw from Avon Beach and right on the edge of Christchurch Harbour, so on a day like this when the sun was out and behaving well, it was a beautiful place to take photos.
Here are some of my favourite shots, followed by a little slideshow.
