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!

While most people were eating leftovers, nursing a hangover and watching the Great Escape, Laura & Jason’s families spent Boxing Day celebrating in style. Rhinefield House is a stunning venue at any time of the year and was perfect for Laura and Jason’s Christmas wedding. The Grand Hall at Rhinefield was beautifully decorated with a huge Christmas tree, and was a grand but cosy setting for their ceremony and reception. The whole wedding had a wonderful festive theme, with crackers on the tables, gorgeous wintery flowers and the bridesmaids dressed in green and red (the ‘Hollies’ and the ‘Berries’) Everyone was in a great festive spirits and made me feel very welcome.
It was a beautiful winters day and Laura was determined to get outside for some photos in the sunshine, I think braving the chilly weather was worth it as the grounds are so nice too.
