DORSET WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHARLES THORNE

Thank you so much for coming on to my gallery page. Based in Christchurch in Dorset I photograph throughout the county, New forest and the south coast.

Here, you will get a good idea of what I do. Before you plough through them what type of photographer am I?

Well, Wedding photography in my eyes is a storybook of your magical day. I want to portray your nerves beforehand, emotions that relatives and friends show, the characters that make your day so special. Documenting your day with a bit of fun, portraying the candid moments. I will do group shots in a very relaxed way, not taking over, just adding to the atmosphere.

So answering your question. I am a mixture of candid and traditional with a little bit of cheekiness and a lot of fun!

Below will show my favourites over the last couple of years. From the beginning of the day to the very end. Enjoy!!

WHAT IS THE KEY TO ME BEING YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?

Hopefully you are getting an idea of my style and what your day could be like with me.

At this point I think it is important to explain what happens if you take me on as your photographer.

Well, I am certainly not the silent party who just turns up on the day and takes pictures. To get relaxed pictures we need to know each other beforehand. Before your big day we will meet up a couple of times. Firstly at a pre wedding shoot and secondly at our planning meeting which will happen hopefully at the venue. This is where we will discuss the day in detail so I have a good idea of what is happening on the day etc. We will also look at the weather and plan for different scenarios. I do like to be fully prepared.

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TESTIMONIAL

Thank you so much for sending our photos through, we are struggling to find the words to say how absolutely incredible they are. You have captured our day so perfectly and we have relived our wedding time and time again through your photos. Not only are they photos but they really are works of art; from the cheeky smiles of the flower girls to the raw emotion we both felt on the day and everything in between.

We have had so many comments from all our guests about how lovely you were on the day quite honestly we all forgot you were there. You directed us when we all needed it and as a result the photos are perfect.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so understanding in times of covid when we had to move our date time and time again. Never once did we feel like you would let us down. Our pre wedding shoot enabled us to gain excitement for our big day and you ensured it happened when we both felt down about our first wedding postponement.

We are genuinely over the moon and we cannot wait to show all our family and friends our wonderful day and to relive it over and over again.

Thank you
