Nichola and Andrew’s Blessing
{All Saint’s and Castle Malwood Park, Minstead}

Those of you who follow our blog may well recognise Nichola and Andrew from their wedding day last June at All Saint’s and their delightful afternoon tea reception at Lainston House before they both left England once again to take up their new life together based in Dubai. Well, they have returned to England to celebrate their first anniversary in marvellous style with a Blessing ceremony back in All Saint’s church and celebrations at Nichola’s family home in the New Forest.

Andrew and his party were all in Lyndhurst preparing for the day ahead and this is where Earle met them all while I was with Nichola and her family and bridesmaids in Minstead until the time came to leave for church.  The horse and carriage delivered the Mother of the bride and bridesmaids to church before returning for Nichola and her Father who were able to enjoy a lovely journey through the leafy sunblessed lanes of Minstead to the dear little church where Nichola and Andrew married last year with just their very closest family present.  Today the church was full to bursting point to share in the renewal and blessing of their vows.

A glorious reception with influences of Nichola’s Hong Kong childhood followed complete with a Chinese Lion dance before retiring to the marquee for their wedding breakfast and evening party.

It has been wonderful to see Nichola and Andrew again with their family and so many of their friends, Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to you both and hope you enjoy the images of your incredible day.

Lucy and Andrew’s wedding
{Beaulieu Abbey and The Domus, Beaulieu}

Lucy and Andrew were staying at The Montague Arms the night before their wedding and it was here we were to meet up with them. Andrew made his way with his best man and father to the pub for a little pre wedding sustinence. Lucy was with her bridesmaid, sister and mother busy with all those lovely girlie preparations, hair, make up and lots of excited chatter.

Beaulieu was looking exceptionally memorable in the glorious sunshine, the Domus and Cloisters a perfect setting for the drinks reception after Lucy and Andrew’s beautiful marriage ceremony. We were able to complete the formal family photographs while everyone enjoyed their canapes and very welcome drinks. Once Lucy and Andrew had been able to enjoy some socialising we guided them around the grounds of Palace House for those important photographs they had been looking forward to of just the two of them together. We could not be too long as the wedding was moving onto the National Motor Museum for a private reception there until returning to the Domus for the wedding breakfast and evening party.

Once darkness fell we popped out into the cloisters again with Lucy and Andrew for a few portraits amongst the arches while the party continued. It was not long before the bride and groom were ready to take their leave along a tunnel of sparklers leading out to the car waiting to whisk them off to Lainston House Hotel.

A simply stunning day all round, huge congratulations to Lucy and Andrew on your marriage.  We have selected a variety of images from Lucy and Andrew’s day for our blog while the full edit is completed. Please join in and drop us a line through the comments box below.

Nichola and Andrew’s wedding
All Saints Minstead and Lainston House

Thursday morning and we are off to the New Forest and the lovely village of Minstead for the wedding of Nichola and Andrew in possibly one of the most quirky and dearest little churches we have visited.  Nichola and Andrew’s wedding was a very intimate occassion with only their immediate family present and they all enjoyed a very special and particularly personal ceremony by the alter just inside the chancel arch.  We then all made our way to the lovely Lainston House Hotel where the wedding party was able to enjoy the incredible garden setting overlooking the glorious lime avenue while champagne and afternoon tea was served.
