Zadi and Pihl – Intimate Bournemouth town centre wedding at the Hilton Hotel

Earlier this year I was contacted by Zadi and Phil who were looking for relaxed and informal coverage of the intimate wedding that they were planning in Bournemouth Town Centre. Their ceremony was in The Willows ceremony room at Bournemouth Town Hall, going on to the Level8ight Sky Bar at Bournemouth’s Hilton Hotel.

For their town centre wedding, Zadi and Phil were particularly keen to have journalistic and natural wedding photography, without too many formal and posed group shots. Walking between the ceremony in Bournemouth Town Hall’s Willows Room and the reception at the Hilton Hotel, I couldn’t resist stopping the guys for a couple of portraits in Bournemouth Gardens. The light was stunning and when you’ve got a couple who look as good as these guys, how can you go wrong?

Onward to the Level8ight sky bar for drinks, lunch and board games. Level8ight provided really relaxed atmosphere, and cocktails that looked amazing – I’m far too professional to have partaken in them, of course! While the guests were enjoying themselves, the room provided me with a great chance to capture some relaxed and candid moments.
