Wedding photographer in Dorset

Let's face it Dorset is gorgeous. From the hills in the far west to the sandy beaches on the south coast, it does have a little bit of everything. A little bit of bias as living here all my life has something to do with my statement. Being a beautiful county means a lot of couples want to get married here and I totally understand why.

This is one of my favourite Dorset weddings this year. Bank holiday weekend; Gorgeous hot weather; Best speeches ever and a 110 year old car brought back to life just for this day. Rob & Katie had it all.

Gorwell Barn Wedding

tom & amy / gorwell barn

Tom & Amy had a fab wedding at Gorwell barn which is in a secluded valley in the heart of the Dorset Countryside. I have so many memories of this great day but the main thing that shone through was their connection with each other.

'Comments' about my work

dorset wedding photographer

'We have seen Charles' work at three of our friends weddings and decided we would book him for ours. The best decision ever. Before the big day we met with Charles a couple of times to discuss the day and what he would be doing. Charles even gave us a lesson in how to pose for pictures!! I would definitely recommend Charles Thorne Photography to anyone needing a photographer. Thank you for creating the photo memories of our special day.'




'We absolutely LOVE the photos Charles took of our wedding at Highcliffe castle. We are so happy to have them all to keep to remember our special day. Not being able to be everywhere at all times throughout the day, we also now have some new moments to be able to remember that we would otherwise have missed, so HUGE thanks again for capturing all our loved ones and happy memories so incredibly well. We will treasure these for a lifetime.'
