Camilla and Kit’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

Camilla and Kit travelled from their home in Guernsey for their wedding day in The New Forest.  We met them in Brockenhurst, Kit and his party were ducking the beams in the very quaint Cottage Lodge before leaving for drinks in Monty’s while Camilla and her family were at The Pig busy with hairstylists and makeup artists.

By the appointed hour of leaving for their ceremony at The Domus the early morning mist had lifted and the day was looking bright.  The ladies from Exclusively Weddings had been incredibly busy creating a magical and very beautiful scene within The Domus and proved perfect for Kit and Camilla’s particularly wonderful ceremony.  After which they  were able to enjoy a lovely drive in their wedding car around Beaulieu and grab a little time together while their guests tucked into the drinks reception.   A small army of Exclusively florists were back at work in The Domus  creating a massively impressive scene for the wedding breakfast.

Beaulieu’s open top vintage bus was a popular option for guests to have a trip around the estate in the early evening prior to the cake cutting and first dance which kicked off an excellent party with serious celebrations!

Huge congratulations to Kit and Camilla on your marriage and a very super day.  We hope you enjoy the blog images, we will be in touch as soon as the full gallery is online for you.

Zoe and Ben’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

The New Forest at this time of year has got to be one of the best places to be and with the sun shining brightly for Zoe and Ben’s wedding day at The Domus in Beaulieu everything was looking perfect.

Jane went to meet Zoe at home in Minstead while Earle met Ben at Monty’s where he was meeting up with friends and family for a quick drink before the ceremony.  The Domus looked wonderful, the afternoon light was streaming through the windows throughout Zoe and Ben’s marriage ceremony and we were able to complete the formal family photographs outside in the Cloisters before they were taken for a drive around Beaulieu village in their very grand Rolls Royce wedding car and then enjoy their wonderful wedding breakfast.

It was important to Zoe and Ben to have those after dark photographs in the Cloisters, so they were more than happy to brave the evening chill after their first dance and we hope they are delighted with the results.

Many congratulations to Zoe and Ben on your marriage, a wonderful wedding day and for finding each other in the first place!

Jane and Ben’s wedding
{Beaulieu Abbey and The Domus}

What a superb day for a wedding in The New Forest, the sun was out with a lovely cooling breeze as Earle met Ben at The Montagu Arms where he was enjoying a pre wedding drink with his best man and ushers.  I made my way across to the Romsey home of Jane’s parents where Jane and her bridesmaids were all preparing for the day ahead.  After a few final touches and button hole in place for Jane’s father everyone was ready to leave amid cheers and waves from all the neighbours.

Beaulieu Abbey was looking resplendent, filled with beautiful seasonal blooms arranged by a close family friend who took care of all the flowers for Jane and Ben’s wedding.  The drinks reception in the quadrant gave us opportunity to quickly organise those important family group photographs while everyone was able to enjoy their lovely drinks and canapés before retiring into The Domus for the wedding breakfast.

With the evening light settling Jane and Ben returned to the quadrant for some portraits before the evening party began and lots more guests arrived for a fun and full evening of dance and joy!!!

Congratulations to Jane and Ben on your marriage and a super day which we hope you will hold the best memories of for your life together. We have picked some of our favourite images from your day for you to enjoy while we complete the full post production of your proofs.

Karen and Ken’s wedding
{The Pig, The Domus and Marquee}

Ken and Karen started their heavily Scottish influenced wedding day off with the preparations at The Pig in Brockenhurst, the lovely New Forest hotel with charm and quality exuding from every corner.  The hair and makeup girls were taking care of Karen and her bridesmaids when I arrived with  plenty of hustle and bustle with various family members coming and going.  Earle was already at The Montagu Arm in Beaulieu waiting for Ken and his best man to arrive for their pint before moving on to The Domus and Karen’s arrival for their marriage ceremony and drinks reception out in the quadrangle

The wedding breakfast was arranged in the marquee at Ken and Karen’s lovely New Forest home where all the guests were able to enjoy a wonderfully relaxing afternoon before returning to The Domus for a large and lively party. 

Many congratulations to Karen and Ken on your marriage, we have selected a few of our favourite images from your wedding day for your enjoyment, we will be in touch soon with details of your gallery.

Devon and Mark’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

A return trip to Beaulieu for Devon and Mark’s beautiful wedding day at The Domus.  Totally loved the sparkling white Fiat 500 wedding car which delivered Devon to The Domus in brilliant style, this has got to be our favourite wedding vehicle to date!  It was lovely to meet up with Tori from Riot Hairdressing and Evie from MadeUp again, it is always a joy to see them at bridal preparations and the high standard to work they always achieve surrounded by lots of happy ladies!  The Domus looked particularly resplendent thanks to the team at Leith’s and the  floral talents of Lynda and her girls at Exclusively WeddingsFreddie and The Freeloaders provided the superb live music for the evening and made sure the dance floor was packed all night. 

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Devon and Mark on your marriage and fantastic wedding day.  Enjoy our selection of photographs here while we continue with the post production.  We welcome any messages.

Natalie and Kieryn’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

Easter weekend and The New Forest!  How wonderful to be photographing a lovely wedding day back in Beaulieu again!  Natalie and Kieryn chose to have a more intimate wedding day focusing on all things natural and country orientated which made for a particularly beautiful occasion for them and their guests.  Sam and her team at Leith’s did a superb job of creating a cosy and sociable atmosphere in The Domus with clever table arrangements and the huge fireplace lit to add to the welcome.  I met with Natalie over the road in the Montagu Arms just before she departed to meet with the registrars prior to the wedding ceremony.  Kieryn and Earle were of course already there with the guests assembling in the sunshine.  The weather for this Easter Saturday was just superb enabling everyone to enjoy the grounds before sitting down in The Domus for a quite outstanding meal.  Love, love, love the food here!!!

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Natalie and Kieryn on your marriage and a totally super day! We hope everyone enjoys our pick of just some of the photographs and we welcome any comments for us or Natalie and Kieryn.
