Tiara's by Becky

A client and now good friend has just launched her new website.

Excellent headpieces and we've seen a few now, but also "everything to match and tie in with their theme. I now do dress jewellery perfect for adding the vintage touch to a dress without the vintage cost, shoe clips, bridal belts, brooch bouquets, jewellery and garters.  Along my journey i have also been a finalist in the dorset wedding supplier awards 3 years in a row, which i won in 2013."

Take a look

Dorset Burlesque 2015 Retrospective 20151120-_MG_0915-PanoDorset Burlesque

2015 has also been a fantastic year for me personally in attending the Burlesque shows organised by the amazing Sensu'elle

The girls put so much effort into their performances from the first timers through to International performers. Although the girls and the acts are stunning it is always a challenge as I have no control over the lighting and also attempt to provide video coverage as well. Never the less each show is a fantastic experience and well worth the trouble.

Busy day in Broadstone I managed to actually spend a whole day today in Broadstone, a 3 minute journey!

First appointment was at the superb Franco's Restaurant . This was a small gathering of local members of the Federation of Small Businesses where Michael Tomlinson, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole was visiting in support of Small Business Saturday. It was good to have a chat with him about some of our issues. Also met some local traders.

With an hour to wait before the start of the Broadstone Christmas Parade I decided to take up an offer from Jen and Jan who run Good Vibrations in the Junction health centre. Wow! 10 minutes on the machine and certainly felt like a workout but have to admit my back (carrying cameras round my neck has taken it's toll!) felt a lot better after. Yes will be returning. Apparently it may help with reducing certain areas which seem to wobble a little excessively!

Next up was the Broadstone Christmas Parade. I haven't covered this since my kids stopped being in it. It was really good to see all the participants and a great turnout from the people of Broadstone. A very Christmassy atmosphere and all the kids seemed to be having a great time. All the photos have been now put on the website.

Of course I should of then gone home for a hot Christmas Toddy but it was a cup of tea, Mince pie and 2 hours of editing !

A lovely day in Broadstone

Cabaret at the Barrington Theatre, Ferndown On the 20/11/15 we were fortunate enough to be booked by Sensu'elle to cover a Cabaret evening at the Barrington Theatre, Ferndown. The evening had been arranged by Steve Lugg to raise funds for EDCC charities.

20151120-_MG_3383Steve Lugg

The Barrington theatre is always a pleasure to work at due to their fantastic technical team for lighting and sound.





The first act who had been called upon very last minute due to illness was the absolutely amazing Samantha. At 23 she has an extensive repertoire with a phenomenal vocal range.

After a wonderful hour of Theatre, Opera and Comical songs we had a short break before the second half.

The second half contained the Burlesque acts opened by Sensu'elle and the gorgeous Burlesque Belles.

Following the Burlesques Belles was Felissy Tease.  "a curvy cutie from East Anglia" who certainly lived up to her name.

The next act up was Rose Devine with 'Cruella de Vil'. A gorgeous pastiche on a very famous dark character!

Next came Trixi Treat. Trixi performed a beautiful act to the music of Christina Aquilera. A wonderful imaginative act.

We were then treated to acts by the gorgeous Miss Talulah Teasecake."A tasty slice of burlesque. Burlesque performer from the Southwest of England."

 And the classic beauty Lady Emerald. A real, original Bunny girl. 20151120-_MG_0967-EditTallulah Teasecake

Then came a superb piece of work. A fantastic juxtaposition of Ballet and Burlesque from Miss Avant Garde performing Swan Lake.

Of course for the final act we had a fantastic performance from the International showgirl herself, Sensu'elle.

Purbeck Wedding With Weddings slowing down a bit now I might finally catch up on our Blog before the Party season starts !

AdrianLambert Photography were very fortunate to be booked for a gorgeous Purbeck Wedding in the Summer. A lovely couple from Somerset getting married in their home village of Kingston, Dorset with the reception at the lovely and very scenic Purbeck Golf Course. We had already provided a Pre-Wedding shoot with the couple and knew they were going to be fun to work with.

After dropping off my Second Photographer at the Brides house in Harmans Cross I made my way into Wareham to find the Groom and Best Man at the Barbers, Barnets Barbers to be precise.

The weather was not good but the forecast was for sun. So after a soaking in Wareham we headed off to Swanage to the lovely B&B the Groom was staying at to find sunshine ! Meantime preparation was progressing well at the Brides house with the careful attention of Make up artist Kirsten Sare.

Bournemouth Wedding Just published the lovely Wedding of Dani and Gav at the Riviera Hotel, Bournemouth.

The day started at 8.00am introducing Claire, the second photographer and Maxine her assistant off at the Brides house in Ringwood. I then drove into Ringwood to meet the boys at Champion, the mens groomers.

From there I returned with the boys to the Grooms house for the preparation. Meanwhile the girls were doing well.

We then returned to the hotel to setup the Photoguest book for what looked to be a very busy evening.

As I thought the Guestbook was very busy, lots of photos, not much signing but the Bride was happy with that. An interesting dance was performed by the Groom, Bestman and usher and then the first dance.

Hectic Weekend What a superb weekend we have just had !  Friday afternoon saw us visiting the New Milton Junior School. Always an enjoyable afternoon with the studio photography being very popular. This year a number of girls from another school visited and numerous group poses !

IMG_0976-EditSchool Photography

For Friday night, a short drive to Milford on Sea following an invitation to attend the Jazz Club from James, the band leader of The Red Fez OrchestraWindmill  Community Swing Band opened the evening with a number of great renditions of Swing band classics followed by The Red Fez Orchestra.

IMG_1337Windmill Community Swing Band

This was the first time I had seen the full band. They are superb. Not only great music from the earlier part of 20 century but also a brief introduction to each tune from James or Howard and sometimes both providing an element of cabaret to the proceedings. You'll have to go and see them to understand the Red Fez element! After two encores for The Red Fez Orchestra I made my way home.

Saturday took me down to Bridport for the lovely Wedding of Gem and Daniel. Bridal prep contained all the usual elements plus snakes, lizards and Tortoises ! with the Ceremony and Reception at the beautiful Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens. You could spend hours doing Bridal Modelling in this lovely part of Dorset but we had to get back for a sumptuous BBQ. More details on this lovely Wedding when we publish it for Gem and Daniel.

Sunday found me at the Riviera Hotel, Bournemouth covering the Recce of a forthcoming Wedding and then over to Studland for a coffee in the sun followed by a torrential downpour.

Lyme Regis and West Bexington Wedding Still within Dorset but a bit of travelling for us on this one. We started early with Claire and myself meeting up at the reception venue and also the Brides preparation location, The Manor Hotel, West Bexington. A gorgeous hotel 100 yards or so from the beach. When we got there I took a quick an opportunity to check the sea state which rather put pay to any beach shots or so I thought.

beachRough sea at West Bexington  I left Claire with the Bride and drove off to St Michaels in Lyme Regis. A gorgeous old Dorset church. Unfortunately the Groom had to spend the morning running around Dorset and so didn't want and Prep shots so I took the opportunity to have breakfast in the town. eandb_54St Michaels, Lyme Regis, Dorset

At the appointed time I met the Groom in the church and proceeded to set up the video cameras as well as a few Reportage shots of the Groom and the Best Man.

Meantime Claire was covering the Bridal prep back at the Manor house.

eandb_66bBridal Prep Soon the guests started arriving. I went outside to await the Brides arrival. She was a good few minutes late but that is accepted but did require some rather rapid Bride and Bridesmaids shots. We proceeded into a very expectant church for the Ceremony.

A slightly nervous Groom

and so a delightful Ceremony ensued. We were not allowed to take photos so concentrated on video.

Due to the weather we took a safety group shot in the church which proved to be a good move. The guests then departed for the Manor Hotel and Claire and I took the Bride and Groom to the beach as the weather was now very different.

We then also made our way to the Manor hotel but unfortunately the weather didn't, continuous rain ! So we did the group shots inside before a superb Manor Hotel Wedding Breakfast.

During the Wedding Breakfast the rain stopped, so I took the opportunity to get some venue shots.

South Coast Gems Tomorrow I will be out getting wet and so I thought  I would schedule a Blog post for you about a a couple of superb photoshoots we covered back in February to read on a wet Bank Holiday Saturday. Yes I know its May but we have been very busy!

The Allendale CentreA previously taken image from the Winter Wonderland Wedding Fair.

Wendy from Saphire Styling had arranged a Photoshoot for the girls from the South Coast Gems to be run over two Saturdays and asked us to be the photographers. Wendy had arranged the whole thing from the girls, Makeup and Hair to booking a room in the Allendale Centre, Wimborne, Dorset. We just had to turn up with Backdrop, Lights, Cameras and ideas.

We had no idea who would turn up or what they would be wearing. We also didn't know their level of modelling experience, so a great opportunity. For the first shoot I enlisted the assistance of Gary Graham, A fashion photographer who I have known many years. The girls arrived and Wendy and her team went to work. The girls were stunning to start with but with a bit of extra magic applied Wow! All we had to do was to capture their beauty in camera.


A small selection of the girls and photos from the two days :

After doing Pro and Amateur model shoots for many years I must say how impressed I and the team were with the professionalism shown by the girls from South Coast Gems. With only 20 minutes on set each they were amazing. I look forward to working with you all again sometime.

Thank you Wendy for not only the makeup and hair but also all the management in arranging this very enjoyable shoot.

Compton Acres Wedding. As ever the Wedding season has truly started and the blog has suffered ! Here is a bit about a gorgeous Wedding we covered at the Italian Villa, Compton Acres.

It was an unusual Dorset Wedding for us as the Bride did not want any prep shots but the Groom did. So I met the groom with his Best Man and Mother on a gorgeous sunny day.

Groom, Grooms mother and Best Man EandN_14_2EandN_14_2  From here I went with the Groom and Best Man to The Cliff, in Canford Cliffs. On a gorgeous sunny day an ideal venue for pre-wedding drinks especially as it is just up the road from the Italian Villa.

On arrival at the Italian Villa I set up the HD video equipment and had a quick chat with the Wedding Co-ordinator and the Master of Ceremonies. The Bridal party arrived on time and after a couple of pre-wedding group shots made their way into the Ceremony.

As expected the evening was very enjoyable with the Best Man also being the superb  DJ Michael Artwell. Not only did he entertain the guests but also dragged our second photographer onto the Photo Guestbook set.

A very good weekend This weekend started with a very positive Friday. Two Wedding Confirmations, one in 2015 but the other in 2016. Perhaps the world is getting back to normal  for the Wedding industry.

Saturday  morning I setup a studio in the Allendale Centre, Wimborne for a day long photoshoot with the lovely ladies of the South Coast Gems. Excellent models with one lady being her first time.

I left our photographer, Gary,  there and headed off to Lyme Regis for a Wedding Recce. I have never seen the sea that rough, hope it calms down for Saturday !


From Lyme Regis I then drove to Leweston School near Sherborne for their 6th Form Ball. A superb evening with wonderful people. The theme was Mardi Gras with a very nicely decorated restaurant. We also did the standard group shot.

Dudsbury Golf Course Wedding fayre _DSC2738Dudsbury Golf course Wedding Fayre

First Wedding fayre of the year. A very busy day at Dudsbury Golf course. As they quite rightly state on their website "The standard is set for others to follow". It was good to meet up with Paul and Sarah again as well as Sam from Pretty Mades Bridal  and Wendy from Sapphire Styling who prepared  the gorgeous models from South Coast Gems. We have agreed to do a lot more work with Sam, Wendy and gems in 2014 including Photoshoots and attending the first Verwood Wedding Fair on the 2/3/14. Here are a couple of 'snaps' of the event.

2014 I promise to do better I have just noticed how bad I was at updating our Blog last year, Sorry. What with Facebook and Google + it would appear I completely neglected my own Dorset Wedding Photographer blog after July !

Oh well New Years resolutions and all that, lets see how this year goes.

A very busy start so far with a good number of 2014/15 Wedding bookings coming in and a good number of parties to look forward too. So don't leave it too late to book.

A bit of a wet start to the New Year. This is us at the ABSA Husky Dog racing two weeks ago.

Happy Birthday surprise_MG_8785 Last year we were fortunate enough to be asked to cover Bob's sons Wedding at Dudsbury Golf Course where we included our Photo guestbook Service. This was such a success that Adam secretly arranged for us to provide just our Photo-guestbook service at his fathers 60th Birthday party

The Chine Hotel, Bournemouth Just published our photos from the lovely Bournemouth, Dorset Wedding of Jo and Gary at the Chine Hotel.

We met both Jo and Gary at the Chine which makes life easy with Claire covering the prep and myself in the bar with the Groom and his entourage.  The Ceremony was held downstairs and after we went for the formal group shots on the lawn.

The weather was rather windy and not for the first time we had to pose the group shots into wind! With an intrepid Bride and Groom and a healthy amount of followers we headed off for Boscombe Pier for some Bridal modelling.

Dorset Bride and Groomjandg-13_319 After making it through the sandstorm the wind on the pier was ferocious but we all made it to the end for a couple of shots and a group shot of the 'explorer' party.

We returned windswept but intact for the Wedding breakfast. After a lovely meal a period of 'chilling' led to the evening Disco and impressive Chine Hotel Barbecue.

All our best to Jo and Gary in future together.

Leweston Leavers Ball Yesterday we were fortunate enough to be invited to provide our Event Photography service at the very impressive Leweston School near Sherborne in Dorset. We have covered this event for a number of years now and always look forward to it. The girls, staff and guests have always been a pleasure to meet and the venue superb.


As always we not only provide our full size studio with onsite printing but also our Reportage coverage of the whole event.

LLB-13_50 LLB-13_71 With a superbly decorated Marquee and a live band we had plenty to cover. Traditionally we provide a group shot indoors and weather permitting a group shot outside although this we also provided a 'mad' group shot at each location.

Dorset Steam Wedding kands-13_355kands-13_355

I delivered the gorgeous Wedding of Kirsten and Steve yesterday. It was probably the most emotional delivery I have made in 15 years !
Received this lovely message this morning.

"Hi Adrian, Thank you for sitting through all the blubbing last night. It was great to have you over and also to see what wonderful shots had been taken. We couldn't have asked for more."

A gorgeous Wareham church of St Martins on the walls. Dorset's oldest church. Who'd of though that they would have built a church so exquisitely designed for photography in 1030 AD. The superb Harman's Cross, Village hall, The Swanage Railway, A charming Vicar, superb Guests, lovely couple and of course the excellent Dorset weather all made our day perfect as well.

Thank you all and all our best to Kirsten and Steve for their life together.

Dorset Christening Just back from a lovely christening at St Marks in Talbot Village. The parents were one of our Bridal couples from 2009. We had already covered the Christening of their first born and today was the Christening of their second child. We also covered the Wedding of the brides sister last year. It is so good to keep in touch with our Brides and watch their families grow. Such an honour.Thank you.

Upton Country Park Wedding Fair Yesterday we attended the excellent Upton Country Park Wedding Fair.

Dorset Wedding Photography_DSC1640

Apart from our recent excursion into Somerset it is the only Wedding Fair we do so when yesterdays was one of the best they have provided, I felt it was worth blogging about. It was good to see our usual friends there 'Dream Cakes my Michelle', Penn Hill Weddings, Dave Jackson PhotographyParadox Photography, Absolute Fun Casino, Holly Marsh Photography, All Aspects Wedding Services and Swanage Event Hire but also new boy IanH Photography. Another new addition was four Fashion Shows provided by Girls of Elegance which appeared to have full attendance but unfortunately as we were so busy all day we didn't have a chance to go and look or take photos but next time I'll take more staff. So an excellent range of Dorset Wedding Suppliers in a gorgeous Dorset Wedding venue visited by a large number of Dorset Wedding Couples. Lot's of enquiries for 2014 dates and beyond.

Well done 'The Friends of Upton Country Park' and 'The Borough of Poole'.

Wedding Wishing Well Masquerade Ball Feedback One of the things that makes my job of Wedding and Event Photographer so enjoyable is all the great feedback we get on the quality of our work and us in general, but when it comes from someone who is actually working hard for others and in distressing circumstances herself it makes it that much more special. 

Thank you Naomi it is much appreciated.



“Adrian was brilliant at our annual fundraising event this year, he arrived with plenty of time to spare to make sure he had his equipment set up and to get a few photos of the venue before our guests arrived. He even brought another photographer with him to to make sure nothing was missed. The set up he has for event photography is superb, with instant printing there and then for your guests to take away. The standard of photography was exceptional and he always took a few shots to make sure he got one that everyone was happy with.
On top of his photography skills he was such a lovely gentleman. We really enjoyed working with Adrian Lambert Photography, we will most certainly work with him again and would highly recommend him for any event or wedding”

Wedding Wishing Well Foundation 1st Masquerade Ball Woodlands Castle Wedding Venuewwwf_21 Last Friday we headed off to Woodlands Castle in Taunton, Somerset. An excellent Wedding Venue who had donated the use of the venue to the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation for their 1st Masquerade Ball sponsored by IDN. The foundation has been the idea of Naomi Thomas and in the words from their website:

"In 2010, she was told it had spread and was therefore no longer curable.

Naomi had been with her fiancé, Graham, for 3 years and desperately wanted to get married.

However, the burden that cancer brings to a family’s finances meant that it just was not possible.
Then in late 2011 a local wedding planner offered to help Naomi organise her wedding and also to find wedding suppliers who would work for free.
She succeeded and on 6th June 2012 Naomi & Graham married.
After the success of her big day, Naomi was determined to turn her experiences into something positive and set up The Wedding Wishing Well foundation in 2012 to help others in the same way she was to marry her prince!"

The Marquee had been beautifully decorated and in addition had a Casino, a Photo Booth, Sweet Cart and of course a Bar. Woodlands Castle Marqueewwwf_1

We were to be housed in a lovely room inside the main House. We proposed to use our White Backdrop but Naomi convinced me to use the actual fireplace. We just had to watch that we didn't get ourselves in the large mirror above the fireplace when doing the shots ! Woodlands Castle Event Photographywwwf_41


We were introduced to David Stallworthy the Master of Ceremonies and two "Secret Singers".

The guest started to arrive and were greeted by David by the Red Carpet.

During the meal the "Secret Singers" performed their superb act to a surprised house !

New Site 'Almost' As part of our annual clean-up I have taken the big step of moving our website onto the Zenfolio servers where our Customers Gallery has been sited for many years. I hope you like the cleaner, fresher and more integrated look. 

The only downside will be that previously customers accessed their photos at this url is now and the previous one has gone. It just means adjusting your bookmark etc to replace gallery with www. Sorry for the inconvenience and of course it will not affect new galleries.

The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation  

Whilst perusing the Web last week I saw this charity The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation. In their words "The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation is a new non profit organisation founded in 2012 by Naomi Thomas & Samantha Williams.The aim is to facilitate a bride or groom who is terminally ill in marrying their life partner."

AdrianLambert Photography will be supporting them in any way we can.

Social Media for Dorset Wedding photographer  

It's that time of the year again where I realise that I need to get someone in to do the Social Media side of the business. I suppose you can tell how busy we get by the amount this blog gets updated !!!!!
Well we now have a Google+ Page Dorset Wedding Photography and a Facebook page AdrianLambert Photography and of course Twitter and this Blog. So between them you should be able to keep with our activities.
This year see's us with an almost full Wedding Calendar (certainly for Saturdays) with trips out to Bristol, Kent and Salisbury. Claire onboard offering Pet and Baby Photography and hopefully a considerable amount with The Regular Joes and some Burlesque. I also will attempt, yet again, to learn to dance !
My apologies now if this Blog gets forgotten.
