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.
I met up with Sue and Rich at Farley Mount near Winchester for their pre-wedding portraits last week. Oh how I love summer evenings and the beautiful golden sunlight, which is all a bit flary and ethereal. The yellow fields of oilseed rape made a really vibrant backdrop for the photos, and I’ve been aiming to do some photos here each year and never managed to schedule anything in so I am well pleased we found this spot. Here’s hoping for another gorgeous sunny day for their Botleigh Grange wedding this weekend.
Last week I met up with Rich and Caitriona in historic Winchester for their pre-wedding photos. The cathedral is a great backdrop for portraits, I love the textures of the walls and the archways of the flying buttresses. It was a fresh Spring day, with lovely warm sun and a first hint of the new season. They are getting married at one of my favourite venues, the Longhouse in Bruton Somerset in a few weeks, and I’m really looking forward to their (hopefully) sunny Spring wedding in the Countryside.
