I like to share just one photo from each wedding before I blog the full set several weeks later, so here is a slightly-later-than-planned preview of Sue & Rich’s wedding last weekend at Botleigh Grange in Southampton. Congratulations! More when they are back from their Florida honeymoon…
First wedding of 2011 on Saturday and a great start to the year with Rob and Karen’s winter wedding at Chilworth Manor in Southampton. Here’s a little sneak preview of the newly weds. The full gallery to follow in a few weeks when they are back from their snowboarding honeymoon in Canada. Congratulation Mr & Mrs Convery!

My 2011 wedding season kicks off in a few weeks with Karen and Rob’s winter wedding at Chilworth Manor in Southampton. We met up last week, taking a pleasant break from the dreaded tax return, for some pre-wedding portraits at Chilworth. Looking forward to a great start to the wedding year…
Melissa and I did A level photography together a few years ago. Back then neither of us knew our f stops from our ISOs and we muddled our way through with our new SLR cameras, hand developing prints in the darkroom and going backwards and forwards, giving it another 10 seconds exposure, burning in here, dodging there. A few years and a name change later, it was a real honour that Melissa wanted me to photograph her wedding.
They got married at Southampton Art Gallery which is a brilliant, bright space for a civil ceremony in the centre of the city. Traffic in the centre of the city, not so brilliant, and there was some tense moments waiting for Melissa to arrive. After the lovely ceremony they had drinks in the gallery and then we strolled into the opposite park for some photos while everyone headed off to the Holiday Inn for the reception. The tables were poker themed, with cards as favours, and later on a magician entertained guests with card tricks. Melissa works in child care and loves children who were a big part of the day, running around in the hotel, playing and laughing and filling the dancefloor later on. It was a lovely, family fun day and Melissa and Damian seem so very happy together. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Brierley!
You are welcome to leave your comments and congratulations for the happy couple below.
Lisa and Mike got married at Chilworth Manor in Southampton on a sunny September day. I love photographing the wedding day but have to admit I sometimes get a bit bored of editing photos, however I have really, really enjoyed going through Lisa & Mike’s day again. It made me think really what a wedding is all about. I do read far too many wedding blogs and magazines and get obsessed over uber stylish designer dresses, or cool homemade table decorations, but actually a wedding is about two people in love, and sharing that with their nearest and dearest and having a really good time. Lisa and Mike look so happy, and there is such fun and excitement coming across in their photos and dress, shoes, venue and flowers aside, THAT is what a wedding is all about. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Moreton, may your happy wedding lead to an even happier marriage!
It doesn’t seem long ago I was photographing Sam & Glenn’s wedding and now they have another big moment in their lives to celebrate- the birth of their first baby. Welcome to beautiful baby Isabel, who was just 11 days old when I took these pictures.
