Harriet and Ben got married on a sunny spring day at Highfield Church in Southampton, with the reception at Balmer Lawn hotel in the New Forest. Harry said they were getting married in Spring because she loved daffodils. So we had to find some for their wedding, even if it was a roundabout in Lyndhurst on the way through the forest.
The full gallery is online for friends and family here, and here are some highlights from the day..

Thanks to the lovely Tarah Coonan for working with me on this wedding. Even though she just laughed when a tiny, mean pony attacked me and stole my softmints. Seems Londoners are easily wowed by New Forest ponies.
Shelley and Mark planned an intimate wedding with close family in their tiny local church in Quarley, Wiltshire. It was originally going to be a secret, but organising even small number of people into the same time and place proves difficult, so all bar the youngest attendees knew the plan by the day. However, their little girls Connie and Eleanor were surprised in the morning that there was a wedding and they were going to be bridesmaids alongside their older sister. I got a real insight into their busy lives photographing Mark and Shelley with the girls and 3 boisterous labradors running around a field- hectic! After the ceremony the party moved on to the Malet Arms, a country pub in a nearby village, where everyone sat down for a relaxed meal in the cosy pub. It was a privilege to be invited into the small gathering and photograph their day.
