Elmers Court Wedding Photography: Kirsteen & Matt

Kirsteen and Matt got married at Elmers Court in Lymington on a sunshiney Spring day. The day was so easygoing, from when I joined Kirsteen and her bridesmaids getting ready in the morning, to the evenings silly celebrations. I loved the balloon artist who entertained kids and big kids with elaborate creations and a bit of close up magic too, and we had a great laugh with the photobooth. Congrats Kirsteen and Matt and enjoy your honeymoon to China, I am very very jealous!

Also, Big Thanks to Anna Morgan who worked with me on this wedding.

Chris & Becky’s Wedding at Stanwell House in Lymington

Becky and Chris got married at cool boutique hotel Stanwell House in Lymington. Becky was an absolute star, having spent the morning in A&E for a scratched eye, she stayed chilled and cheery as she got ready. She wore one of my favourite dresses ever (why did noone tell me about these when I got married!), a stunning sequinned dress by designer Jenny Packham. It was lovely civil ceremony at Stanwell, I loved Chris’ mum reading ‘Dizzy, my head is spinning’ and they wrote their own vows which was really special. The reception was a like a big reunion, with friends and family coming together from across the world (Becky is Australian) The setting, food and styling was very elegant but the day was relaxed and friendly.  Becky & Chris are great fun together, and clearly very much in love. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Angus!

Rhinefield House Wedding Photography: A look at one of my Favourite Wedding Venues

Rhinefield House in the New Forest is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the South, set in the heart of the Forest with stunning ornamental gardens and a variety of rooms for your wedding ceremony and reception, whether you are planning a grand affair or an intimate celebration. It’s one of my best wedding venues to work at as a wedding photographer in the New Forest. I just love the variety of locations in the grounds, which offer a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding photography. I find the interiors of Rhinefield House are fantastic especially for Autumn and Winter weddings, with log fires, cosy wood panelling and those huge chandeliers.

If you are considering Rhinefield House for your wedding, here are some photographs to show you around, all shot during real weddings at Rhinefield.

There are various rooms for you to have your civil ceremony at Rhinefield House. For large weddings you can get married in the aptly named Grand Hall or the Hurst Suite. It is also surprising for such a grand venue, that Rhinefield is also well suited to a more intimate wedding and smaller weddings can be held in the Keepers Room.

Rhinefield House has some great spots for your wedding portraits, and if you are willing to dedicate some time to your portraits a nice stroll around the grounds can make your bride and groom photo session seem very relaxed. There are lots of steps, trees, benches, fountains, an archway of trees, the blue gates to nowhere and the ornamental pond. Being in the forest, Rhinefield changes dramatically through the seasons, from spring blossom to the reds and orange of autumn.

The Grand Hall looks amazing when all made up for your wedding reception, and as darkness falls it always feels very cosy despite the size. I think Rhinefield is my favourite Christmas wedding venue, it just feels very festive with the tree in the corner, and wreaths and fairylights. The Kings room which leads off from the Grand Hall is great for a disco or band and there are also lots of other rooms for guests to split off for a quiet chat.

The Alhambra room is a hidden gem at Rhinefield House, an intimate private dining room designed in a Moroccan style. It is a spectacular setting for a very special intimate celebration.

Claire & Dave’s Outdoors Wedding at Elmers Court, Lymington

With autumn bringing rainy grey days and dark evenings, its lovely to look back at Claire and Dave’s bright, summertime wedding at Elmers Court. The New Forest venue has a lovely patio overlooking the long lawn down to the sea, and can host the wedding ceremony outside in the sun. It was only fitting that Claire strolled down the aisle to ‘I’m walking on Sunshine’. It all felt very Mediterranean, with spanish guitar, tie-less floral shirts and zingy orange accents. After the happy ceremony, friends and family enjoyed Pimms and canapes outside, as the kids raced around causing mischief. We had a quick stroll down to the deceptively long lawn for some photos overlooking the sea at Lymington, before everyone sat down for dinner. In the evening Claire and Dave did a brilliant first dance, and then everyone doce doed into the night to the ceilidh band.

Here’s some highlights from their fun and relaxed wedding, the perfect end to my 2010 summer season. The full gallery is online for friends and family here. Congratulations Claire and Dave!

Claire and Dave’s outdoors wedding was possible because the actual ceremony where the bride and groom stood took place under a fixed roof. Completely open air weddings are not lawful in England which is rubbish. If you think so too please support the Any campaign and sign the petition to legalise marriage anytime, anywhere.
