Lindsey and Michael are getting married at beautiful Rhinefield House in the New Forest at the weekend. We met up a couple of weeks ago out in the Forest on Rhinefield Ornamental Drive for their pre-wedding photos, amongst the amazing tall trees.
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.

I love Rhinefield House in the Autumn, from the drive there through the golden foliage of the New Forest, the house and dramatic clouds reflected in the ornamental lake, to the cosy evenings celebrations in the Great Hall. Penelope and Daniel’s wedding was an autumnal treat, glamourously styled with rich reds and oranges. Penelope is one of those people who is super organised and obsessed with detail, and all credit to her for the fine little touches, from the monogram letters to the hand made menus. She looked amazing in an elegant dress embellished all over with intricate beads, and carried a bouquet of dramatic dark red roses. Daniel was flanked by another glam lady, his sister and best person Lucy. (which seems unusual but she’s the third best lady I’ve come across this year.) The day flew by, from ceremony to afternoon drinks, photos in Rhinefields gorgeous grounds and the dinner and speeches- Here are some highlights. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Richards!

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny autumn day in the leafy New Forest at Rhinefield House for Penelope & Daniel’s wedding. Here’s a little sneak preview of their wedding photos, more to follow in a few weeks time.
More highlights and the full gallery will be online in a few weeks time. To stay up to date why not follow me on facebook.
Back to beautiful Rhinefield again, this time for some pre-wedding portraits of Penelope and Daniel who are having an autumnal wedding there in October.
Belinda and Paul had a beautiful intimate wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest. After an emotional ceremony, and drinks in the sunshine, they celebrated with close friends and family in the amazing Alhambra room, a Moroccan styled private dining room at the hotel. The bride looked stunning in a vibrant purple dress, and I’m pretty sure she didn’t stop smiling all day. As a photographer at a small wedding you really cannot stay detached from the party, so it was great that everyone was so welcoming to me. The couple made my job easy, being fun, relaxed and romantic without need for any prompt, and with the luxury of some dedicated time for photos we made good use of all the fantastic locations in Rhinefield’s grounds for their portraits.
Here are some highlights from their day. The full gallery is online for friends and family here.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Duckson
