Snowy Wedding- Sneak Peek of Katie & Dan’s Hampton Court House wedding

Snow can bring this country to a standstill overnight but it also turns the bleak December landscape into a beautiful winter wonderland. It doesn’t happen too often down this end of the country, so while the snow still lay on the ground at Hampton Court House, Katie and Dan were absolute troopers getting out in it for their wedding photos. Here’s a little sneak preview.

Sneak Preview: Nicola & Matt’s Wedding at Athelhampton House

Winter wedding season is upon us, and the dark nights and chilly weather make for warm and cosy weddings indoors. Nicola and Matt got married at Athelhampton House in Dorset, an opulent 15th manor house filled with historical details and snug open fires, the perfect setting for a winter’s evening celebrations. I’ve picked this photo from the ceremony as a sneak peek, I just love the moment between just the two of them in amongst the room of happy friends and family. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sleat!

Lee & Natalie’s Winter Wedding at Hampton Court House & The Wharf

Lee & Natalie got married at Hampton Court House, a private school during the week, transformed into a gorgeous venue for their winter wedding with ornate ceilings and burning log fires.  After they were married everyone headed off to celebrate at The Wharf in Teddington, a trendy bar & restaurant on the river.

It was one of the most well organised weddings I think I’ve ever worked on but everything went by without any stress (but there were a few tears!) Natalie was already getting her dress on when I arrived 2 hours before the ceremony, so the afternoon’s preparations were relaxed with a heavy air of anticipation. The bride looked gorgeous in an elegant fishtail dress, accompanied by her bridesmaids in sophisticated black cocktail dresses (and little Lauren looking like a princess) Lee and the men all wore slick suits and bright red ties.

The simple civil ceremony was warm and just a little bit teary. With a 4pm ceremony we had just enough of the day’s light left for a few photos of the bride & groom before leaving for the reception. Lee & Natalie had said to me before the big day that they wanted to the emphasis to be on the party- celebrating with their nearest and dearest before they both embark on a year or more travelling around New Zealand and beyond. (sooo jealous!)

Fizz and canapes were served in the Wharf bar while some of  their friends played and sang before the speeches. Natalie took the microphone for the first speech but surprised everyone by singing a beautiful song to her new husband. She really is so talented, I was amazed! Lee, her dad and best man Dave gave some great speeches too, and then the DJ started and the party continued into the night.

We ran a photobooth in the upstairs bar, always good for a giggle, and many thanks to my assistant Liz for running the show. Photobooth pics coming soon..

Lee & Nat tell me they have been eagerly walking down the road to check the internet and see some pictures while they are on honeymoon in the lake district,  so here’s a few more sneak previews to make it worth the walk in the cold!  I’ll keep posting more as I get through the editing, promise!

Carrie & Terry’s Christmas Wedding at Rhinefield House

Happy New Year! Just before Christmas I photographed Carrie & Terry’s wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest. It was my last wedding of 2009 and gladly continued my run of no rainy weddings for the whole year! (am I a lucky omen?) While the rest of the country was blanketed under snow, it was one of those sunny, crisp and cold winters days on the South Coast. Rhinefield is one of those venue’s thats great in summer or winter, and it is certainly a cosy setting with the christmas trees, wood burning fires and chandeliers.

The wedding was of course festive themed. During the ceremony the congregation sang Rudolf the Rednosed reindeer, and the tables were named after Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Dixon (and Bernard?) The table centrepieces were mini-christmas trees and the place names written on colourful baubles. 

Everyone was in good spirits and Carrie & Terry are a very easy going couple and it certainly felt like they are going to have a happy life together.

Here’s some sneak previews of their wedding photos (an extended post as they’ve had to wait until the after Christmas break!) The full gallery will be up for friends and family by the end of the week.   Many Congratulations Mr & Mrs Whittaker!
