Love this birds eye view photo from a rustic wedding last year - and right now, wouldn't it be great to be a bird, able to fly up and away from all the stupid people on the ground who can't grasp the concept of staying at home? 🤦‍♀️ The longer they refuse to follow the rules, the longer it will be until weddings can take place again and this is making my heart hurt so much. This is what I live and breathe, creating beautiful spaces for beautiful people to celebrate in. And I'm frustrated, restless and downright bored! All my stock is in storage 4 miles up the road, so I can't even play around with stuff. I know we are all in the same boat, but sometimes you've just gotta vent, right? 🤬 . .@robingoodladphotography @theoldvicarage_venue @conceptflowers @paula77sexton @scottbreck78 . . . #rusticcentrepieces #rusticwedding #weddingtabledecor #theoldvicaragewedding #hampshireweddingvenue

One good thing about all this is that I’ve got a little time (and by little I mean minuscule) to catch up on blogging last years amazing weddings. Not least these guys. Yasmin and James at @burleymanor Hopefully I’ll get it done tonight or maybe tomorrow, but keep your eyes peeled. They cool don’t they? . . . #newforestwedding #hampshirewedding #bridalinspo

Throwback to gorgeous summer times at hengistbury head - one of my fave places to shoot at! It's so versatile and if the weather is playing ball you can catch a right epic sunset. Totally recommend for engagement shoots if you're not sure where to go ❤🌞 I'm itching to get back behind the camera so I may attempt some self portraits today, hopefully they won't be as bad as my selfies (I cannot selfie to save my life) Not before braving Aldi though - apparently you're only allowed one in per household so not sure who'll win the argument on that one 😂! ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ . ⁣ Hair @victoria_tietheknothairdesign⁣⁣ Make up/nails/organiser @vibrant.beauty

I really am a believer that a wedding is the couple's special day, its all about what you want. Its not the photographers photoshoot, it's not aunt Janice's annual social. It's all about you and your special someone celebrating your love in a party that is personal to you. Thanks to Alana for this review, Swipe across to see some of my favourite photos from their stunning wedding at the Beaulieu Hotel @newforest_hotels "The pictures are amazing and I couldn't of asked for a better photographer, nothing was too much for him to do. Very professional, friendly and easy going. Highly recommend!!!!!" #weddingguide #weddinginspiration #weddinginspired #bridegoals #couplegoals #instawedding #weddingstagram #weddingportrait #portraitphotography #weddingphotographyinspiration #southamptonbride #Hampshirewedding #newforestwedding #newforest #hampshire #newforesthotels #totton #tottonwedding #tottonbride #beaulieuhotel #beaulieu #loveisallyouneed #jlawrencephotography

I have something to suit everyone and can tailor my packages to suit your individual needs I have 3 main packages, all which include full coverage of the day from bridal prep into the party (I don't put a time limit on the day) you'll receive all the photos fully edited on a custom USB. It's then up to you whether you want to add a large landscape 100 page bespoke wedding album to remember your day. I have smaller albums called 'parent' albums which make great gifts for parents or friends/family, often for those who have helped you out with the wedding I create beautiful framed wedding prints in a range of colours, sizes and styles to suit your taste which will look stunning on your wall and be a talking point forever more We can also add in an engagement photoshoot before the wedding so you can have some gorgeous photos and get used to being photographed and get to know one another better before the big day All of this can be discussed at your free consultation, where I will pop over for a cup of tea and a chat and show you examples of my work and we can create the perfect package to suit you, your budget and give you something to look back on and treasure . . . #dorsetweddingphotographer #weddingpackage #dorset #dorsetweddingphotography #dorsetwedding #lovestory #bournemouthphotography #bournemouthweddingphotographer #bournemouthwedding #bournemouth #newforset #newforestwedding #feelthelove #weddingdayphoto #weddingguests #creativeweddingphotography #weddingportrait #poole #dorsetbusiness #weddingparty #wedding2021 #wedding2020

From engagement to wedding - Swipe across! Wedding Advice - the first kiss is a special moment, of course. Because I attract couples that don't like having their photo taken, very often they aren't the most comfortable kissing in public either. But there's actually a lot going on - the registrar is jumping out of the way, the photographer is getting lined up, and if you're not somewhere light like this it can be hard to get a photo. So my advice is 1. Try to enjoy it and 2 if you want a beautiful photo like the second one here, don't rush it, even if you have a few pecks, youll ensure beautiful images 😍😘 #Firstkiss #youmaykissthebride #kiss #weddingkiss #wedding #photography #weddingphotography #weddingadvice #love #loveisallaround #weddingbliss #authenticlovemag #shesaidyes #ido #instabizweek #wedding2021 #newforestwedding #beautifulweddings #classicalwedding #tietheknot #authenticlovemag #modernwedding #weddingdream #weddingguide #adviceforcouples #couplegoals #engaged #engagementphotoshoot #engagementgoals #Romance #jlawrencephotography

I’ve been very busy during #lockdown, I’ve been helping out in local schools offering music lessons. Kids have absolutely loved learning about my @derwentharps and having the chance to play some @thedisneymoana on it. It’s been a really hard few weeks with booking cancellations and so many unlucky couples having to #postpone their weddings till next year with me. It’s been really nice to see the joy that music has brought to the kids, it has really made my week! As it’s Wednesday, here’s a little video to add to my #WeddingRequests. These videos are small snippets of songs that I am frequently asked to perform. A lot of brides ask for suggestions so hopefully these videos will help.

Being part of a Bride's wedding morning is such an honour, one that I cherish and quite simply adore. Things are so uncertain for us all right now and staying safe is the best thing we can do. Looking after our loved ones and ourselves is our top priorities. These last few weeks have reaffirmed how much I love my job and I am missing it very much. I am really looking forward to getting back into work once this is all over. Much love to all of my Brides that have had to reschedule their day. I know this must have been a very hard decison. Fortunately I have been able to move almost all of them. Also a big hello to 2021 brides that have recently booked me 🙋🏻‍♀️ Photo of the beautiful Charlotte on her Wedding Day.

Our wedding stationary 🦌🌿 . Following on from my post last week I wanted to share about the company that made our wedding stationary @prettyneatstudios . A lovely lady called Megan runs the company that specialises in laser cutting, engraving and fine art printing. After seeing Megan’s amazing work we immediately knew that we wanted our wedding invites to be laser cut. We gave Megan some rough ideas of things we’d seen online that tied in with our New Forest wedding along with our gold and grey colour scheme and what she designed was better than we ever imagined. Megan also made wooden deer Christmas tree decorations for our save the dates. We’d initially only planned to use @prettyneatstudios for our invites and save the dates but ending up ordering laser cut gold names for wedding favours, our cake topper, dinner menus, an order of events and our seating plan. We wanted a simple design for the prints with some foliage and they were perfect, we got them printed locally and placed in gold frames we got off eBay. Scroll across to see all of the bits ➡️. Unfortunately @prettyneatstudios are currently closed but honestly cannot recommend them enough and look forward to seeing them reopen when this is all over and share more incredible work 🤍 . #weddingwednesday #weddingstationery #goldandgreywedding #winterwedding #newforestwedding #decemberwedding #lasercutting #supportsmallbusiness

10 Questions I most often get asked by guests at a wedding... Having photographed weddings for many years now I’ve met so many unique characters along the way and getting to know them all is a real joy and lets me capture their photos warmly. I’ve chatted and joked with just about every type of person and as much as working with the general public everyone is different, people are creatures of habit and I can pretty much guarantee I’ll be asked all of these questions throughout the day. It’s all good fun though Hop on over to my blog (link in bio) or to my Facebook page - brianfarleyphotography for the questions and answers ❤ . . . #dorsetweddingphotographer #bournemouthweddingphotographer #bournemouthwedding #dorset #dorsetweddingphotography #dorsetphotographer #dorsetwedding #weddingphotographer #weddingquestions #weddingtips #loveweddings #weddingguests #bournemouth #poole #christchurch #newforestwedding #newforest #lovemyjob #weddingblog

I said I would post more sugar flowers to brighten your feed and here they are , some beautiful jubilee roses, in a dark burgundy red and a pale lemon with pinky red under tones... Imagine these on your beautiful wedding cake, and it's something that won't wilt, and you can keep forever as a reminder of your special day! Can't wait to get on with some knew designs, but for now I'm busy playing with flowers while we're not allowed to bake for anyone, I'm doing my schooling with #suzanneespernightschool and my daughter is doing her schooling with a mixture of nanny on face time and me 🤣🤣🤣 How are you spending your days? #inittogether #getthroughtheday #pretty #prettyflowersmakemehappy #weddingflowersdecor #couture #weddingcakeinspo #weddingcaketasting #prettylittlething #darlingcouple #darlingwedding #luxurylifestyle #luxuryweddingcakes #westsussexwedding #hampshirewedding #newforestwedding #statelyhomes #elegance #florals #tedbaker #designer #imengaged #floralweddingcakes #weddingcakesofinstagram #5starweddings

It’s taken me a bit of time to get my head around what’s been happening recently so I’ve been taking an Instagram break. I’m going to carry on forward by posting pictures from years gone by, to help with inspiration for once this movie script we are living in has ended. I’ll probably post some travel images too, again as inspiration for when we can once again travel to another country without having to hide in a room for 2 weeks when we get there! . . . . . . #getoutthere #weddingplanning #londonphotographer #surreyweddingphotographer #newforest #newforesteeddingphotographer #newforestwedding #autumnwedding #wedding2021

One of the things I have wanted to do since getting married in December is share all the little details and amazing companies we used but life kind of took over and I’ve not shared half of what I’ve wanted to. Now I’m at a point of feeling slightly insensitive for sharing at a time when so many couples are having to go through the ordeal of postponing their wedding but that also it would probably be a great time to share and support some businesses and suppliers that may be affected by what’s going on 😞 . I’ve decided I think it will be nice to share and today I’m starting with the amazing @burleyfudge we used for our wedding favours. We got married in Burley and immediately knew we wanted some local fudge, we’d used the Burley Fudge Shop many times so knew the staff were lovely and the handmade fudge tasted amazing! We decided to buy the fudge in bulk blocks and packaged up ourselves using bags off eBay and brown string for a rustic look. It was more cost effective but literally took me and my sister (and partly George 😆) hours to chop, pack and tie! In hindsight we probably would have opted for them to have packed it all for us which they do and have lots of personalised labels to choose from too. We went for the clotted cream flavour and ordered some vegan too for our vegan guest. They are currently still open to orders for delivery so I‘m definitely about to place one 🤭😁 . #burleyfudge #burley #weddingfavours #barnwedding #winterwedding #supportsmallbusiness #decemberwedding #newforestwedding
