Highcliffe Castle Wedding Photography Dorset | Athena & Mike

Highcliffe Castle wedding photography in Dorset is always a huge pleasure to be commissioned for, even on a dodgey weather day such that we had with sporadic rain showers. Yes Highcliffe Castle is just a 5 minute drive from my photographer home, which may explain why it is my most visited wedding venue, and also as I am one of the most regular Dorset wedding photographers to visit the Castle I am one of the most accomplished when it comes to making the most out of this amazing wedding venue.

Athena got ready at the lodge just near the Castle and there was still time for some preparations for various things, and all was very chilled with family members popping in and out all looking forward to the day to come. I knew the rain would arrive at some point during the day, but was never the less confident that we would get some amazing photos throughout the day as Highcliffe Castle is just fantastic in any weather!

Athena looked beautiful in her dress and I loved both her Mum and Dad walking her up the isle together to give her away and also the little flower girl using her toy to push up the isle on her own was a great idea for her not to get distracted on her way, and she was then followed by more of the kids as pageboys and flower girls/bridesmaids. Mike looked a little nervous, which is very normal, lots of deep breaths were made, and also Athena had a big rise in butterflies on her walk up the isle. I love that you can see these emotions in their images, just makes the story of the day.

Little page boy was given the job to hand over the rings, which he did, and once the ceremony was over we managed to get outside in a break in the rain to get a quick big group shot.

How lovely are the tables, with the theme of colours, so bright and vibrant with each table with its own designated colour, and I loved the Bride and Groom chair covers as well, such a great job Athena and Mike had done for their wedding breakfast room. As it did rain during the day and it was a very dark day for August I went for a very different look in the romantic shots of Mike and Athena, a very dusk look, but just so much atmosphere of love! they worked really well.

The evening reception had a surprise, the best man did a strip! yes you read that right, the best man did a striptease for the Mother of the Bride and Groom, this was a first for me, and a surprise and I had to work hard to keep the camera steady as I laughed all the way through and got some….well…..cheeky shots….BUT before you scroll down the screen to view the resulting images I have left them out of this post 😉 but will do another post where they will appear in full colour!
