As I drove down the lane to Axnoller is was very clear to see why Ian and Wendel had chosen to travel 165 miles for their perfect venue.
It was stunning, the sun was shining, no breeze to speak of, the venue was faultless, calmness spreading through this idillic location set in 100 acres of Dorset rural countryside. Ian & Wendel had found their little piece of perfect for their wedding.
We started the weekend by taking a stroll around the grounds for their pre-wedding shoot, accompanied by their gorgeous dog Morri…
We finished our pre-wedding shoot by taking a walk back to the house to welcome Ian & Wendel’s guests and crack open a bottle of champagne or two!
It all started at Uni. Well to be precise, it all started at the bus stop!
When Alistair met Jennifer at the bus stop on what was to be like any other day, little did they both know, that nearly 10 years later they would be planning their wedding together.
It is evident to anyone looking in, there is a special spark between them. From the outside I could see a gorgeous smile between Alistair & Jennifer that just meant they were with their soul mate.
We wondered around Warwick University discussing what had changed in 10 years, what was new, where they studied, what they did in their spare time on campus. I sure did miss out on the uni life by the sound of it. What I haven’t missed out on is having a job I LOVE and being able to capture special moments like this!
Alistair and Jennifer you truly are a special couple and I am delighted you asked me to photograph your wedding. I look forward to seeing you both very soon, when you get married at what is a truly special venue – Kenilworth Castle
