Axnoller Wedding Photography

A gem hidden in the north Dorset hills, Axnoller is simply the most perfect and luxurious exclusive wedding venue there is. I love working as a wedding photographer here, the setting amongst the rolling hills, with private gardens and courtyards, stunning houses and barns, and a real sense of luxury and privacy from the world is sublime, and it was an honour to be asked to provide the wedding photography for Ali and Luke’s Jewish wedding.

Ali and Luke’s story is one of those romantic ones that always warms the heart – they met by chance in a new York ice skating rink when Luke was over from England on holiday, though of course the divide of the Atlantic was too much for a fleeting romance, and that was that. But then a chance re-encounter through Facebook a year later saw Ali take a trip to England out of curiosity, and the rest is history. After several years together in Dorset, they moved to Ali’s native New York after the wedding, true love and commitment.

This was the first Jewish wedding I have covered as a wedding photographer, and I was amazed by the energy and excitement, such fun it would be great to see another weddings. The Hora dance culminated in both sides of the family being thrown in the air on chairs, not without risk, but a real focal point of the day, and the whole family really become the focus of the wedding.

A midnight sparkler exit, and then we finished with some sparkler painting under the Chuppah, where Ali and Luke had exchanged their vows hours earlier. The perfect end to a perfect day!

    Simply incredible. Not just in the way two people can find each other at an ice rink in New York but the images as well. I loved the dress juxtaposed with the painting. Great work
