Carrie & Terry’s Christmas Wedding at Rhinefield House

Happy New Year! Just before Christmas I photographed Carrie & Terry’s wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest. It was my last wedding of 2009 and gladly continued my run of no rainy weddings for the whole year! (am I a lucky omen?) While the rest of the country was blanketed under snow, it was one of those sunny, crisp and cold winters days on the South Coast. Rhinefield is one of those venue’s thats great in summer or winter, and it is certainly a cosy setting with the christmas trees, wood burning fires and chandeliers.

The wedding was of course festive themed. During the ceremony the congregation sang Rudolf the Rednosed reindeer, and the tables were named after Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Dixon (and Bernard?) The table centrepieces were mini-christmas trees and the place names written on colourful baubles. 

Everyone was in good spirits and Carrie & Terry are a very easy going couple and it certainly felt like they are going to have a happy life together.

Here’s some sneak previews of their wedding photos (an extended post as they’ve had to wait until the after Christmas break!) The full gallery will be up for friends and family by the end of the week.   Many Congratulations Mr & Mrs Whittaker!

    Dear Amy – I am in tears again, what beautiful photographs. Thankyou for your time and energy and skill and vision – the shoes as she got out of the car is inspired and capturing them looking at each other – fantastic

    To catch that look of love as their eyes met is amazing.

    I have never seen two people look so happy, and you have caught that feling to perfection.

    My eyes fill with tears and I could burst with pride each time I look at your photographs. I can’t wait to see the rest!
