Yesterday I shot the wedding of Nicky & Allan at the Lyndhurst Park Hotel in the New Forest. Another sunny weekend after weeks of rain (I’m getting very lucky this year) and a light hearted and fun wedding. I knew Nicky had put a lot of planning into the wedding by the sheer number of bridal magazines scattered around while she was getting ready. She did a great job pulling together the blue colour theme, with the beautiful vibrant bridesmaids dresses and co-ordinated reception room decor.
No one planned for the Forest Mela Festival next door, but the thumping Bhangra music stopped for the ceremony, just so we could all hear Allan mess up his vows and the string quartet battled valiantly against the african drumming during the reception drinks. During the meal guests had a wedding quiz to keep them occupied, and they had a sweepstake on the length of the speeches, with Best Man Mark doing a great job despite admitting his nervousness many times. Nicky is a dance teacher and she managed to teach Allan a few smooth moves for the first dance, leading the way into the evening reception.
Here are some sneak peeks from the wedding. The full gallery is now online for friends and family at www.amywass.photoreflect.com and is password protected with the bride’s maiden name.
Many congratulations Mr & Mrs Vincent!

I love driving in the New Forest usually, but with the A35 closed after Lyndhurst and horrible rain it was such a relief to finally get to Rhinefield House on Thursday. Kerrie & Rod are getting married there this September and we met up to go through their final plans. I know this couple will be a pleasure to work with, they volunteered to stand out in the rain for some photos while I hid under the cover I think that earns them a beautiful sunny day for their wedding. Here’s a few from our session…
Nicola & Allan are getting married at the Lyndhurst Park hotel later in the summer. Here are some photos from our pre-wedding meet up at the New Forest hotel. Looking forward to the wedding in August…
