Autumn and Chris’ wedding
{Beaulieu Abbey and The Domus, Beaulieu}

Another glorious day in the New Forest, just perfect for Autumn and Chris’ wedding at Beaulieu Abbey and their celebrations in the cloisters and The Domus.  Earle made his way over to East Boldre, Chris’ family home for the pre ceremony photographs while I was at Carey’s Manor where Autumn and her bridesmaids and parents were preparing for the day ahead.

Beaulieu is without a doubt our favourite local venue and the beauty and history of the abbey and The Domus was fully enjoyed by everyone there but perhaps particularly Autumn’s wonderful American family and friends.  The scream of joy her bridesmaid let out when they saw the white Rolls Royce’s parked up waiting to drive them to Beaulieu was priceless and the Guard of Honor formed by British and American Navy officers outside the Abbey added that extra touch of pride for the bride and groom.

The late afternoon sunshine provided a wonderful opportunity for the location shoot by the lake in front of Palace House before everyone was due inside The Domus to enjoy the delicious food and wine, speeches and then the evening party and great entertainment.  With the party well underway we did of course nip out into the cloisters again with Autumn and Chris for those every popular after dark images we love creating.  It has been a memorable day for everyone, Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Autumn and Chris on their marriage and a wonderful wedding day.  Please enjoy a taster of the images we have so loved capturing and leave a comment, we love hearing from you all!

Shenay and Dan’s wedding
{Rhinefield House Hotel}

It was one of those glorious October mornings in the New Forest which makes you feel completely delighted to be out and about before most other people.  The drive through Rhinefield to the hotel was stunning and a great day with Shenay and Dan was about to get started.   I met Shenay and her Mum with the bridesmaids during their preparations at Rhinefield House while Earle was meeting Dan and the boys back in Bournemouth before they made their way over to the hotel later in the morning.

The sun was streaming through the massive windows of the Great Hall as Shenay and her father walked up the aisle to Dan for the marriage ceremony and it shone brightly still for them as the day continued outside for the drinks reception and the formal family photographs which we completed before taking Shenay and Dan off into the forest for some of those all important bride and groom photographs.

We were back spot on time for Michael Judd the Master of Ceremonies to officiate over the receiving line and wedding breakfast and take care of everything right through to the first dance.  Once the party was under way we popped outside again with Shenay and Dan for a few photographs of them both in the grounds of Rhinefield House then returned to the party which was enjoying the Turkish influences of Shenay’s father and family!

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Shenay and Dan on their marriage and a wonderful wedding day, we have selected a few of our favourite images for you all to enjoy while we complete the full post production on the proofs.  Enjoy….and please do join in with our blog and leave a comment if you wish:-)

Tara and Dapo’s wedding
{St John’s The Evangilist, Porchester Hall, Bayswater}

Last Saturday was another trip up the motorway to London and this time it was to photograph Tara and Dapo’s wedding and lively celebrations.  The morning began with Earle dropping me off with Tara in north London to photograph her preparations with her bridesmaids while Earle made his way south again to the church of St John’s the Evangilist where he was due to meet with Dapo and all their guests as they arrived for the ceremony.

We always love the vibrancy and energy which accompanies nigerian wedding celebrations and this wedding was no exception, after the ceremony the customary procession of wellwishers dancing up the aisle to the bride and groom was a joy to see and the dancing bearly stopped for the rest of the day.  Photographing the bridal train, the two families each taking their turn in dancing into the wedding breakfast is always a favourite moment of ours and the space in The Porchester Hall allowed the trains the best possible entrance.  The talented singers from Elegant Entertainment provided some wonderful entertainment during the wedding breakfast performing their own act as singing waiters which delighted everyone before the evening party was started with Tara and Dapo thoroughly enjoying their first dance together.

Earle and I send our congratulations to Tara and Dapo on their marriage and wish you both a long and happy life together, we have selected some images from the day for you to enjoy while we prepare the proofs.  Please feel free to join in with our blog and leave a comment if you wish.

Jane and Sebastian’s wedding
{The Guildhall and Hotel Du Vin, Poole}

Jane and Sebastian’s wedding day was small on numbers but extremely big on relaxation and good, solid fun times.  We met Sebastian at the Guildhall in Poole where their wedding ceremony was taking place and their guests were assembling for the arrival of Jane and her Uncle.  The order of the day for us was to keep a low profile and just do our thing photographing the events as they unfold and with such a lovely group of people enjoying themselves this was a perfect setting for us to capture some great images both at The Guildhall and the Hotel Du Vin

Take a peek at a few of the images from Jane and Sebastian’s wedding day and please feel free to leave a comment.

Jing Jing and Edison’s wedding
{Balmer Lawn Hotel, Brockenhurst}

Regular followers of our blog will know we are often to be found working in the New Forest area but this was our first visit to the Balmer Lawn Hotel in Brockenhurst.  Jing Jing and Edison were celebrating their wedding here with a fantastic group of friends who all enjoyed an afternoon of eating and drinking before the evening party which included the bride and groom performing their first dance followed by Edison and his groomsmen dancing for the girls then Jing Jing and her girlfriends performed their dance.

The weather had been pretty harsh most of the day but by early evening the rain had stopped and we were able to take Jing Jing and Edison out into the forest for their wedding photoshoot which they had been looking forward to since we first met with them and a selection of the stunning images we captured in the forest are included below with some of our other favourites taken during the celebrations. 

Many congratulations to Jing Jing and Edison on their marriage and a hugely successful celebration, take a peek at our selected photographs below and please do leave a comment if you wish.

Sarah and Andrew’s wedding
{St Peters Church, Iver and Pinewood Hotel}

An early start for us on the motorway as we headed up to the outskirts of London to Iver, where Sarah and Andy were marrying in St Peters Church.  We knew exactly the lay of the land as we had been in the very same area for another wedding in the family earlier this year and we were really looking forward to seeing many wonderful people again.  All the preparations went to plan and Sarah was ready to leave for church in plenty of time. 

Sarah and Andy’s wedding will always be remembered by Earle and me as ‘the sticky bun wedding’ owing to the entertaining sermon from Brian Griffiths, the minister conducting their ceremony.   We  have never witnessed so much laughter in a church and it set the scene beautifully for the reception celebrations over at the Pinewood Hotel

It was a great day, filled with fun and joy from beginning to end, we have had great fun choosing which are our favourite images to show here on our blog and if you would like to join in by leaving  a comment we will be delighted!   Earle and I send our very best wishes to Sarah and Andy and warmest congratulations on your marriage.
