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.

Chloe and Alex travelled down from Scotland to get married in the historic venue of Winchester Guildhall. Despite the grandeur of the setting they made it clear they wanted the day to be light hearted and relaxed and have photos that captured their friends and families enjoying the day. They had clearly put a lot of effort into making it an enjoyable event, with table football, big Jenga and connect 4, balloons and piñatas and an amazing band for the evening do. (All interesting things which photographers love too!)
One of my favourite parts of the day is the speeches, when I actually get to hear the real juice on the people I have been trailing around all day. It was a really lovely story to hear how Chloe went off all over the world after they left university and how they have both ended up together still- clearly it was meant to be! Chloe & Alex, many congratulations and my very best wishes for the future.
Here are some sneak peeks of their wedding photos. The full gallery is now online HERE for friends and family and is password protected with the Bride’s maiden name.
