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.

Hanna and Calum’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith at Beaulieu}

What a beautiful summer’s day it was for Hanna and Calum’s stunning wedding in the heart of the New Forest.  We drove out to meet them for their preparations at their locations and spent a lovely morning immersing ourselves in the wedding day vibe.  The red routemaster wedding bus was filled with guests travelling from Brockenhurst village to The Domus where everyone awaited the arrival of Hanna and her father in glorious sunshine which stayed shining the whole day.  Jules of Jules Florist in Mudeford had created the beautiful floral arrangements for The Domus and of course all the bouquets, it was lovely to see her work again.

After a wonderfully animated and touching wedding ceremony Hanna and Calum enjoyed a drinks reception and wedding breakfast with their family and friends.  Making the most of the beautiful weather the early evening light was perfect for us to wander out into the grounds and photograph Hanna and Calum together.  They were keen for some portraits out by Beaulieu river and fortunately the tide was in so all was going our way!  Those after dark shots were also a ‘must have’ so during a break from the Ceilidh dancing the four of us popped out into the warm night air and enjoyed capturing what must be our most sought after style of work.

Earle and I send our warm congratulations to Hanna and Calum on your marriage and a beautiful wedding.  We hope you enjoy a small selection of images here, the proofs will be available shortly within the website gallery.

Gemma and Gary’s wedding
{St Mark’s Church and Barford Park}

We have known Gemma for a long time now through our work and were more than delighted when she and Gary became engaged, they then asked us to photograph their wedding day!  A major thrill for us, Gemma knows the wedding world inside out having worked in the arena for many years but above all they are a wonderful couple.

Earle and I both travelled out to Fairfields Farm where Gemma developed her love of the countryside and horses as a young girl.  Today she was preparing for her wedding day there, and was travelling to her own wedding in one of the beautiful horse carriages she used to polish for brides  in her childhood.    Gary was at his parents home, so Earle soon left to meet him before they all tractored to the pub for pre ceremony drinks.

St Mark’s Church in Ampfield was bathed in glorious sunshine for Gemma and Gary.  The ceremony was filled with joy and laughter with plenty of confetti being thrown over them as soon as they were back down the aisle and out into the sunshine.

Barford Park lies on another farm just outside Downton and the task of dressing this lovely barn for Gemma and Gary was in the very capable hands of Jo Hicks.  The flower arrangements, bouquets and the two enormous show stopping flower balls hanging from the rafters of the barn were outstanding. The barn looked perfect. Hay bales and wheelbarrows filled with ice and cold beers were scattered in the grounds outside and the caterers, Keats were all set with their incredible menu.

It was a beautiful day, Gemma created the team to help her achieve the perfect surroundings for her marriage to Gary, it was however Gemma and Gary together who were the team bringing the sense of joy and fun to the celebration.  We could not be happier for you both.

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.

Leanne and Julian’s wedding
{Rhinefield House Hotel, New Forest}

Leanne and Julian’s fantastic and emotional wedding at Rhinefield House was a joy.  The seasonal Christmas vibe was still very present with the giant Christmas tree filling the window in the Great Hall welcoming the guests and bride and groom for their marriage ceremony. The Willy Wonka wedding cake was just one of the many  features Leanne and Julian had decided upon to be sure their day was filled with laughter and fun for everyone there.  The evening party began on this occasion before the traditional first dance with Julian having organised some of his friends from the entertainment world  to perform for Leanne, their family and friends, starting with a terrific fire performance out in the grounds then back indoors again for the incredible jugglers and puzzling mathemagician!

Earle and I send our warmest congratulations to Leanne and Julian on your marriage and a superb day.  Please enjoy the selection of images from your day here while we prepare your proofs.

Kaleena and Ian’s wedding
{The Domus, Leith’s at Beaulieu}

Christmas at Beaulieu, a superb and festive atmosphere surrounding Kaleena and Ian for their wedding ceremony and celebrations in The Domus.  the wintery sun shone throughout the daylight hours streaming through the windows of this ancient building creating a perfect pool of light for Kaleena and Ian as they stood together exchanging vows in front of their family and friends.  We were able to complete the formal family photographs out in the quadrangle before taking the bride and groom into the immediate surroundings for just a few minutes for a few photographs of them enjoying the moment!  Kaleena was particularly keen to return outside after their wedding breakfast so we could capture some of our signature after dark images which had caught her imagination.  Brave girl….it had become pretty chilly but she was determined to brave it and out we went!  What stars they were, totally entering into the joy and creativity and as a result we have some rather special wedding photographs for them both to enjoy.

Earle and I send our heartfelt congratulations to you both on your marriage and the birth of your dear little boy, we hope this new year brings you everything you both dream for.
