I like to share just one photo from each wedding before I blog the full set several weeks later, so here is a slightly-later-than-planned preview of Sue & Rich’s wedding last weekend at Botleigh Grange in Southampton. Congratulations! More when they are back from their Florida honeymoon…
All the photos from Shelley & Simon’s wedding at Steeple court manor are now online.
I had such a fun day at Shelley & Simon’s wedding yesterday. They got married at St Mary’s church in Sholing, with the wedding reception at Steeple Court Manor in Botley. The weather has been bad for the past few weeks but they were so lucky, it was a gorgeous day. I joined Shelley while she was getting ready at home, looking very glamourous in a beautiful full dress and some very high heeled shoes! No photos during the church ceremony unfortunately, but plenty of catching up later at the reception at Steeple Court Manor, which has a lovely garden for drinks and photos.
The traditional wedding stuff out of the way and the highlight of the evening had to be the photobooth. I have not laughed at a wedding so much, it was such fun watching everyone donning stupid hats, glasses and props and being silly for the camera. With the aid of my assistant Libby we set up a mini-studio in the corner of the marquee and brought along some props for the guests to get crazy. I think it went down a treat and everyone had great fun posing for pictures. I think Simon lied to me when he said he didn’t like having his photo taken earlier in the day- maybe the feather boa gave him that confidence he needed.
Mr & Mrs Arthur- thanks for being up for a laugh and being great fun. Hope you had an amazing day and many congratulations!
Having a Photobooth means you also get wedding photography: the late night extended mix… and more stupid dancing photos.
Hope everyone on the South Coast has been enjoying the fantastic weather we’ve had this weekend- lets hope this is the sign of a great summer to come. I spent my Saturday shooting Leanne and Rob’s scorching wedding at Botleigh Grange, Southampton. It was a double celebration for Leanne as it was also her birthday and she couldn’t have asked for a nicer day for it. Most of the wedding was spent out on the patio, enjoying the sunshine, with the kids chasing kites and putting golf on the lawn. The ceremony was emotional (not just because Leanne was running late and made Rob wait!) and it is clear these two are meant for each other.
Here’s some sneak previews of their wedding photographs. The full gallery is now online HERE and the password is the bride’s maiden name.
