Sarah and Matt wedding

The start of the day for me started at Coleese again!  Those lovely people certainly know how to organise wedding hair!!!  Sarah and ALL her bridesmaids were with Coleese in Poole to have their hair styled brilliantly and I joined them there to photograph progress.  Earle meanwhile was with Matt and ALL his ushers and bestmen in the pub….. sometimes I do just wonder….??? :-):-) Anyhow while they were at the pub us girls all moved on to Sarah’s family home where the final preparations were to take place before leaving for the ceremony at Christchurch Priory.

The Priory as ever was quite stunning and the weather gave us the most beautiful conditions to capture some really show stopping images for Sarah and Matt. 

Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest was ready and waiting to greet Sarah and Matt with their guests for the afternoon and evening celebrations.  It was lovely to meet David Thomson, the Toastmaster/Master of Ceremonies whose welcome to all of us was hugely appreciated and the invaluable contribution he made to everyones enjoyment must be acknowledged.  We had a beautiful day there, the weather was warm and sunny and a lively party of guests set the pace for the rest of the day! 

Earle and I enjoyed capturing some very special photographs which we hope Sarah and Matt will treasure along with their memories of a truly special day.  Sarah looked a total beauty and Matt really did brush up pretty good too,  the happiness really shone through both families all day long.  Huge congratulations to you both but also to both of your families…. and we still don’t envy that very large christmas list you must have to sort out every year now!!!

Susie and David wedding day

The day of Susie and David’s wedding was unexpectedly warm and sunny, perfect for their beautiful New Forest wedding. 

Susie, her Mum and Katie were all having their hair and make up taken good care of by our old friends at Coleese in Poole where I had arranged to meet with them early in the day before driving back to the home of Susie’s parents where Susie and here family were finalising their preparations to be ready for the trip over to St Annes Church in Brockenhurst.  

Earle had enjoyed the morning with David and his family with a swift visit to the pub en route to the church where Susie and David’s ceremony took place spot on time!  We were soon all making our way over to another lovely area in Hampshire to find Elmers Court Hotel and Spa  in Lymington, the location for the wedding reception.  Amid glorious grounds all the guests enjoyed wonderful hospitality, some wonderful jazz singing and then a fantastic party with some incredibly energetic dance off’s!

Many congratulations to you both, Susie you looked radiant and David, you must have been the happiest man alive…. that smile never left your face!  Have a wonderful life together.

Earle and I have included a few of our favourite images from your day here for you to enjoy. 

It will be great if anyone wants to add a comment for Susie and David.

Miskin Family Portraits

The Miskin family came along to see us for a family shoot.  They wanted some relaxed and fun images in the studio so that is exactly what Earle and I set about creating with them.  The family knew just the sort of look they were hoping to have reflected and we are delighted they had the confidence in us to help them achieve it.  It was great meeting you all.

Natalie and Steven Pre Wedding Portraits

We met up with Natalie and Steven for their pre wedding portraits at Hengistbury Head.  It was one extremely windy evening making it pretty chilly down by the sea but they were complete stars and threw themselves into the portrait shoot with wonderful humour and enthusiasm.  Earle and I are looking forward to your wedding day and look forward to hearing which image you both decide on for your signature print!  Thank you both for being such fun.
