Time to start catching up on my blogging and sharing some photos of people I’ve been photographing these past few months. Way back on a sunny evening in Winchester I met up with Julie & Rob for their engagement portraits around the old city centre. Will have some more from their wedding coming up soon…
Winchester Wedding Photographer- Amy Wass
At the beginning of November I exhibited at the Nostalgic Wedding Fair run by the Vintage Parade, held at Winchester Guildhall. It was a fair aimed at Vintage and Alternative weddings, with wedding vendors selected who offer something a little different from the norm. There were local wedding suppliers from all around Hampshire, offering wedding photography, unique jewellery and hair accessories, scrummy cakes and tarts, creative floristry, and lots of quirky ideas, stationary and styling for your wedding day. All day there was entertainment from the lovely Amy Baker, singing nostalgic tunes, and Rock n Roll from the Voodoo Cats. It was lovely to meet all the future brides, grooms and their friends and family who came to see me on my stand.
Here’s a few photos from the day. Firstly here’s my stand,with my own take on vintagey styling; its not all about shabby chic and muted colours- I went for a bright floral tablecloth and some faux grass whic I think better suits my colourful photos and branding.
There were lots of pretty things to see, but my favourite was this amazing vintage tiara from Cherished. A real statement piece for a vintage bride. If you see something you like, head on over to the Nostalgic wedding fair page. to find all the other suppliers.
Outdoor weddings are amazing! Alex and Nick got married on a sunny April day in a field looking out across the rolling Hampshire countryside. They did the legal bit at the registry office the day before, so were free to have the ceremony out in the sunshine. It was so lovely being out in the fresh air and hearing the birds singing while they said their vows, with their friends and family providing the readings, music and leading the ceremony. Afterwards they went for a drive in the vintage Rolls Royce and we did some photos in the pretty bluebell woods on Farley Mount. They returned to the celebrations, held in a huge teepee tent, decorated with so many colourful flowers. Guests sat on reindeer furs on the long benches, tucking into pie and mash, and as the sun set, a fire was lit, and the summertime festival became a warm and cosy party. One of my favourite weddings to photograph, the outdoors setting was gorgeous, everything was so well put together and so personal, without interference from a church, council official, hotel or venue, and Alex and Nick were such a fun and chilled out couple. Many Congratulations Alex and Nick!
I met up with Alex and Nick and their black Labrador Cree (??) for their pre-wedding portraits up at Farley Mount near Winchester. They got married last weekend in an amazing outdoor ceremony in a field, but for now here are their pre-wedding portraits in the bluebell woods.
I’ve been so busy recently I have neglected the blog a bit and have many weddings and shoots to share. Things are getting back to normality a bit now so I will be blogging like a mad thing over the next week or so. For now, I thought I had better share Laura and Gareth’s pre-wedding portraits as they are getting married tomorrow. We met on a blustery summer evening at Cheesefoot Head near Winchester, with views over the rolling Hampshire countryside. Hoping for a beautiful summers day for their Romsey Townhall wedding tomorrow…
Yesterday I spent the day photographing Jane and Mark’s wedding at Norton Park hotel near Winchester. Despite the early ceremony, the day flew by but wow I ache today! It was a wedding with pretty handmade yellow details, sunshine, crazy dancing and lovely people, and kept me busy with lots to photograph. Best Wishes Jane and Mark!
If you’d like to see a few more previews head over to my facebook page, and remember to come back in a few weeks for the full wedding.
