I met up with Annie, her parents, sister Emily and best friend Kate at The Sandbanks Hotel, the venue for the reception. All was calm and as Annie and her nearest and dearest got ready. Annie looked amazing in her Berketex of Bond Street gown, it was perfect for her. Her bridesmaids in their hot pink dresses from Coast also looked stunning.
Alan met up with Richard and his two best men, Dan and Sacha at Annie and Richard's home before heading off to All Saints Church in Branksome Park to await the arrival of Annie. The atmosphere was lovely, Richard is lucky, like Annie to have a wonderful family; here photos were taken with his parents and his four younger brothers, David, James, Robert and Henry before heading into the church.
The ceremony began and it was lovely, made more so by the choir from Parley First School, where Annie teaches. They did the happy couple proud as they heartily sang the hymns smiling as they witnessed Miss Tribe becoming Mrs Bannister! Bless them!!
Once the ceremony was over it was time to head to The Sandbanks Hotel for the reception, the sun shone and there was lots of laughter; groups shots were taken on the golden sands of the beach before the wedding breakfast commenced. Annie and Richard's speeches were great. We headed to beach for some more shots as the sun went down, before the evening celebrations and the dancing began.
Thank you for choosing us to photograph your wedding. We wish you much health and happiness for the future.
