Sopley Lake Wedding Photographer | Peter Smart
Sopley Lake Wedding Photographer – A selection from Shelley & Toby’s wedding at Sopley Lake, Sopley Farm, Sopley, Christchurch, Dorset.
Thank you Shelley & Toby for choosing me to capture your wonderful September wedding. Sopley Lake is one of my favourite outside wedding venues/locations and always seems to provide me with tons of inspiration for natural candid shots. My style of photography lends itself well to this kind of environment as I absolutely love taking photos outside in a countryside setting or in woods as the movement of shadow and light provides real drama to an image. Sopley Lake has a dreamlike rugged beauty about it that’s hard to describe, it’s a Lake with an island surrounded by woods which sits snugly inside some farm land where you can also pick strawberries and flowers to buy. It’s quite perfect for a medium or large wedding celebration and people can stroll around to their hearts content.
I always carry out a recce of the area about an hour or so before I start and there are so many stunning areas for shots at Sopley Lake that I was spoilt for choice. Throughout their day I spent a long time simply wondering around picking out moments that would tell their story in a natural way. With kids playing, games and laughter everywhere, I was inundated for moments to capture. Toby and his Groomsmen were all decked out in fabulous vintage tweed suits which perfectly complimented Shelley’s stunning dress and fitted the style of their wedding wonderfully. It was a full-day wedding for me which right up to the first dance was one that will live long in my memory.
