Lindsey and Mike were married at Rhinefield House in the New Forest back in the Spring. Friends and family travelled to the New Forest from all corners of the UK, and Lindsey and Mike named their tables after the various places they have lived in their time together. Rhinefield House was looking stunning, decorated with dusky pink florals, candles, paper roses and ivy trails. Lindsey had put so much attention into the details with personal photos adorning fireplaces, a beautiful mirror for the table plan and a thumbprint tree as a guestbook. The day was fun and relaxed, and it always make my job easier and enjoyable to work with a nice group of guests and a such lovely couple. Congratulations Mr & Mrs H!
Sarah and Tim were married at the elegant Hotel Du Vin in Winchester on one of the first sunny Spring weekends of the year. They planned an intimate celebration on the wedding day with close friends and family, and held another big party a few weeks later. The Hotel Du Vin was a perfect setting, with its quirky interior, and reputation for good foods and wines, and they had decorated the tables with dusky pink and cream flowers and Parisian themed decor. Located right in the centre of Winchester, we were able to explore some back streets of the historic city for the bride and groom’s portraits. It was a really relaxed day with drinks in the sunshine and Sarah and Time both just smiled non-stop all day. Here are some highlights from their Winchester wedding…

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.
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.

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.
Shelley and Mark’s full photo gallery is open for friends and family at GALLERY and here’s a selection…
Caitriona & Rich got married at one of my favourite wedding venues, the Eco-friendly Longhouse in Somerset. It was early April and a beautiful Spring day in the countryside. With a relaxed day planned they chose to have their portraits before the wedding ceremony and met in the garden for a romantic ‘first look’ before heading off around Bruton for some photos. Seeing each other before the wedding is a break from tradition, but by arranging a set up First Look, you can share a moment much more intimate than at the altar in front of everyone. You can then do your portraits without missing the party and spend more time with your guests during the reception. Its something I would encourage all my brides and grooms to consider and I hope these photos show what a nice idea it is.
Anyway, back to the wedding, and the morning’s non-traditional meeting did not take any of the magic away from the lovely ceremony. After the marriage everyone went out into the gardens for Pimms and canapes. During the drinks reception the happy couple stepped away from the party and took a private moment together to sip champagne. Meanwhile the room was set up for the wedding breakfast, with handmade daffodil and grass table centres and chocolate brownie wedding cake. Caitriona put loads of hard work into making things for the wedding, growing the daffs for the table centres and stringing up bright felt bunting and even knitting the bouquets and buttonholes.
Into the evening and guests danced to the Ceilidh band and when darkness fell a small group ventured into the field and released chinese lanterns which was a beautiful end to my day. Here is a selection of photos from their beautiful wedding day. Congratulations Rich & Caitriona!
