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.

Natalie and Richard’s wedding day
{The Elvetham, Hampshire}

What a superb day we had back at The Elvetham on Sunday with Natalie and Richard, an idyllic venue filled with lovely people many of whom we had met before while photographing the wedding of one of Natalie’s sisters.  The excitement around the hotel was wonderful, everywhere looked splendid and the joy of their ceremony brought tears to many happy faces!

The grounds at The Elvetham are extensive and beautifully maintained making a superb framework for this impressive 19th century mansion, this makes photographing there thoroughly enjoyable so combine that with Natalie and Richard and we were totally spoiled!  A very relaxed drinks reception in the grounds preceded the wedding breakfast in the light and airy conservatory from where everyone could still enjoy the views of the gardens surrounding them. 

Earle and I send our congratulations to Natalie and Richard, we wish them a long and very happy marriage.  Please enjoy some of the images here we captured during your wedding day while we complete the preparation of your proofs.  Any comments will be welcomed as always:-)

Lauren and John’s wedding
{Christchurch Priory and Captain’s Club}

What a perfect day this Friday the 13th was for Lauren and John’s marriage at the stunning Christchurch Priory and the very beautiful riverside venue of Captain’s Club in Christchurch.  The flowers all looked beautiful and the team at Captain’s Club were all very excited and delighted with the finished look of their venue for Lauren and John who had focused very strongly on English tradition and summer time colours giving the most perfect feel to their entire day. Michael Judd was as always wonderful in his role at Toastmaster and made sure everything ran completely smoothly.

We were delighted to have the opportunity to pop along to Hengistbury Head with Lauren and John later in the day for a few minutes to capture some images of them on the beach and Cliffside which we are confident will contrast beautifully with the images earlier in the day around the grounds of the Priory.

Earle and I send Lauren and John our warmest congratulations and wish them many years of very happy marriage.  We have selected some of our favourite images for your enjoyment while we complete the post production for the proofs.

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.

Miri and Howard’s wedding day
{Pennyhill Park Hotel, Surrey}

What a fantastic day at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey with Miri and Howard on their wedding day!  A wonderful location, a great venue and a perfectly super gathering of their family and friends.  The energy and emotion buzzing around was incredible so to combine this with the music and dancing made for a particularly terrific occasion for us to photograph.  The team at Pennyhill Park Hotel were a joy to work with.  Earle and I had been recommended to Miri by her sister whose celebrations we had photographed in recent years and it was lovely to see their family again and meet Howard’s delightful family also.

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Miri and Howard, we hope you and everyone else enjoy our choice of images here while we complete the post production on your proofs.  We always welcome comments from anyone who wishes to contribute:-)
