A festival of colour – Teresa and Allan at The Dover Marina Hotel

I was delighted to join Teresa and Allan for their seaside wedding last June.  It really was a fiesta of colour and the room was most beautifully set up with pom poms and butterflies galore.

We were so lucky to be beside the seaside because the weather had turned quite humid but there were cooling sea breezes (and air conditioning in the ceremony room!)

Teresa and Allan seemed just so relaxed and Teresa even had time to pose briefly with her brother at the door of the hotel …

We decided to have the formal shots on the grand steps in front of the ceremony room … for two reasons, one, ease of access and two, because the sun was out and incredibly warm!

Teresa and Allan were just a joy to photography, happy and relaxed the whole time. And they also received lots of congratulations from other people enjoying the seaside too!

In the UK, with hot weather often come thunderstorms and this was the case but we had just a few minutes to dash outside and get a few more portraits on the beach.

I so very much enjoyed photographing this colourful wedding with such a lovely couple and also had great fun working with them on producing their album.  I am sure that our paths will cross again in the future and I wish you both all the very best of luck in your future lives together and keep smiling xxx
