Christchurch Harbour Hotel Wedding Photography – Courtney & Karl

So we are currently almost finished week 2 of ‘lockdown’!  I’m sorry if you’re having to deal with all this at the same time as planning your wedding. It’s an INCREDIBLY stressful and difficult time for us all but together we can get through it! AND I’m on your team as I’m also a postponed June 2020 bride! So please feel free to message me for a natter anytime (I’ve checked my diary and I’m pretty much available all of the next few weeks!). During this time I’ve been looking back and reminiscing over past weddings and today I am blogging Courtney & Karl’s beautiful Christchurch Harbour Hotel Wedding. Courtney had booked me to capture her special day after seeing my photos from her best friend’s engagement shoot (who was also named Courtney!). Courtney & Courtney were each other’s maid of honours and it was great to be able to capture these special memories for them. On the day, we spent the morning at the bride’s parent’s house, perfectly situated just down the road from the church!

New Milton Church Ceremony

Courtney was looked STUNNING in her gown from Stephanie Frances Bridal. Soon it was time to make our way to St. Mary Magdalene Church for their ceremony which was filled with joy, singing and music!

Coastal Dorset Wedding Venue

Christchurch Harbour Hotel & Spa is a luxury spa coastal hotel in Dorset sat on the water’s edge of the beautiful Christchurch Harbour. It was the perfect venue to host Courtney & Karl’s wedding reception after their beautiful ceremony and has stunning views across the water. Karl kindly helped sweep the confetti from his wife’s hair before we headed to the gardens for welcome drinks and photos.

The wedding breakfast room was decorated elegantly with personal touches. Photos from their engagement shoot were made into confetti and scattered on the tables and the room was filled with foliage and greenery. These guys know how to PARRTYYYY! After their meal the guests headed straight to the dancefloor where there was some epic dancefloor moves!
