Highcliffe castle wedding photographer


Thank you for looking at my Blog and congratulations if you have just got engaged. It is daunting starting the search for your wedding venue for your big day. You are probably thinking – where do I start and what am I looking for? With this in mind I have done a map of Dorset for you with all the main venues on it. I hope you find it useful.

Here are some of my favourite venues in and around Christchurch. A lot of these venues are great and work together well. Some can be walking distance from each other which will make it easier for your guests.

West Dorset wedding


This West Dorset Wedding was a complete joy from beginning to end. Being on one of the hottest days of 2019 made it a day not for the jackets but of shade and the fizzy stuff. 

Gorwell barn wedding


Gorwell Farm is found in a secluded wooded valley just 2 miles from the village of Abbotsbury and Chesil Beach. As you enter the farm the views of the Jurassic coast is outstandings.
