Sopley Church Wedding Photography

Peter & Jo / Sopley Church Wedding and Mill at Gordleton

Peter contacted me in a bit of a stressful situation - the wedding photographer he has previously booked for his Sopley Church Wedding had let him down! Luckily I was available and was delighted to capture their wedding day. Peter and Jo's vision for their wedding was relaxed, laid-back and surrounded by close family members. All their planning really paid off, it was joy to be part of!

Myself and my wonderful second photographer Emma, met Jo and Peter (and their two beautiful daughters) at their home whilst they got ready for the exciting day ahead. Jo was a true boho bride with her hair in a gorgeous plait intertwined with pretty flowers. She wore a simple lace dress for their ceremony and an equally gorgeous embellished Monsoon dress at The Mill at Gordleton afterwards. The bridesmaid dresses for their daughters were also from the children's range at Monsoon. Peter wore a very stylish tweed 3 piece suit.

After Jo and Peter had their confetti exit from their Sopley church wedding, there was just enough time for some group photos before it started to rain. Not a problem, the guests made their way to The Mill at Gordleton whilst we grabbed a couple of umbrellas. Peter, Jo and their daughters walked across the road to a little bridge for some quick photos. After this, they popped home for Jo to change into her second dress. By the time we got to The Mill the sunshine was back out - yippee! With the sunshine and the mill's beautiful gardens, everyone was able to enjoy a drink outside. Their was a lovely family atmosphere whilst the children all played games on the lawn. Peter and Jo enjoyed a meal with their family in a private dining room. Followed by speeches and cake cutting back in the gardens.

I hope you enjoy looking through these images. To view the rest of this special day or to order any prints, please contact the bride and groom for the gallery password. You can find their online gallery here. If you're been looking for a Sopley Church Wedding photographer please feel welcome to contact me here.

Thank you Peter and Jo for having me capture your wonderful wedding day!

Hampshire Wedding Photographer at Careys Manor Hotel

Lily & Craig / Careys Manor Hotel Wedding

It's currently a freezing day in January so to remind myself of the sun, I have been looking back at my sunny spring/summer weddings of 2017. One of the most unexpectedly glorious weather weddings was Lily & Craig's on Easter Sunday with Careys Manor Wedding Photography by Rachel Elizabeth Photography. Lily and Craig chose to get married at this lovely venue because next door is Brockenhurst College, which is where the couple first met whilst both studying plumbing many years ago.

Lily, her mum and bridesmaids, all got ready at Careys Manor. The bridesmaids looked beautiful in mint green lace-up dresses, which suited them all perfectly. Lily wore a stunning strapless lace dress and really did look like a true princess. I was excited to hear that Owen from Little lillies would be creating lots of gorgeous floral art for the day. Lily's and her bridesmaids bouquet were so exquisite - a mix of airplants (my new favourite item in the world), minty green hues and delicate pink roses! The bride and groom were married underneath a walkway of branch arches, decorated with more air plants and greenery. You can see this and the rest of his fantastic work in the images below. You can also see their amazing wedding cake by Cake Luxe, which featured the best tasting carrot cake that I've been lucky to try! The ceremony and drinks reception was accompanied by the wonderful sound of a saxophone. The music was a lovely touch whilst everyone was enjoy the sunshine and sipping a few drinks on the lawn. Lily and Craig's Careys Manor Hotel wedding day was a great day, which was filled with so many happy moments - one of the highlights being Lily and her father's dance off!.

I hope you enjoy looking through these images. To view the rest of this special day or to order any prints, please contact the bride and groom for the gallery password.

Photography at Limewood Hotel

Sheila's Birthday Celebrations / Lime Wood Hotel

The Lime Wood Hotel is one of my all time favourite venues! Set in the heart of the New Forest, The Lime Wood has heaps of history and is bursting with character. Classily luxurious without being stuffy or pretentious. The staff are always amazing and it's joy to visit. So I was very happy when I was contacted regarding Limewood Hotel Event Photography.

On a crisp January evening, I arrived at Lime Wood to capture Sheila's birthday celebrations. Sheila, surrounded by her family and friends, celebrated in the Lime Wood's study. A lovely cosy private dining space with a very welcoming open fire. I had a wonderful time capturing lots of natural images whilst being unobtrusive. They even treated me to a delicious cocktail (non-alcoholic of course but still extra tasty!). In between courses we had lots of laughs whilst doing some relaxed group images. We finished off the evening with a surprise cake followed by a couple of photographs in Lime Wood's beautiful bar area.

I hope you enjoy looking through these images. If you are planning a Lime Wood Hotel event or wedding and are looking for a relaxed, natural wedding photographer then please pop over a message to me on my contact page.

I would also highly recommend treating yourself to the Lime Wood Afternoon Tea.

Wedding at Kings Arms Hotel

Laura & Ricky / The Kings Arms Hotel

Laura and Ricky are truly made for each other. With warm hearts, friendly personalities, family focussed and a shared love of Marvel and Harry Potter! Their Kings Arms Hotel Wedding was on a lovely spring day - a complete contrast to the engagement shoot we did a few weeks before in thick fog and showers! I started the day with Laura and her lovely bridesmaids and mum whilst they got ready in one of the Bridal suites at The Kings Arms. Laura looked every inch the beautiful bride in her stunning strapless wedding gown and beautiful wedding bouquet by Simply Flower. Simply Flower also provided their light up giant LOVE letters, which were a great hit with the guests for photo opportunities.

The crumb factory created an amazing wedding cake to add to the Marvel theme which not only looked amazing but smelt just as good! Laura and Ricky cut their wedding cake with a Gryffindor sword in true Harry Potter fan style.

A big thank you to my second shooter Keith Bridle for being brilliant/hilarious/looking cool. Thank you also to the happy couple for our bottles of bubbly to take home and enjoy - they know the way to my heart!

Megan & Oli / The Old Vicarage

Where do I begin with this beautiful day at The Old Vicarage Christchurch! Megan and Oli had put so much thought into the whole day and it was filled with personal touches, little quirks and tons of emotion -There was not a dry eye in the room as they read out their vows that they had written themselves. Here is a beautiful extract... "People are like cities: We all have alleys and gardens and secret rooftops and places where daisies sprout between the sidewalk cracks, but most of the time all we let each other see is is a postcard glimpse of a skyline or a polished square. Love lets you find those hidden places in another person, even the ones they didn't know were there, even the ones they wouldn't have thought to call beautiful themselves." - Hilary T. Smith.

I started the day with Megan, her Mum and bridesmaids who had spent the previous night relaxing in the spa at Christchurch Harbour Hotel. Megan presented each of her Bridesmaids with pretty pink floral boxes filled with little gifts for them to enjoy and a necklace for them to wear - such a great idea! Whilst the girls were having the hair and make-up applied by the talented Grace Bailey, I nipped outside to get some photos of Megan's lovely shoes and bouquet (which was created by the florist who Megan had worked for whilst she was a schoolgirl). It was then time for Megan to put on her 1950s Vivien of Holloway gown and I made my way to The Old Vicarage Christchurch. The venue was filled with homemade decorations such as pink pom poms in the trees, a kissing booth that the couple had made, a polaroid gallery, decorated crates, lanterns by Fundoo Weddings... the list goes on! I also must mention their amazing wedding rings, Megan had a lovely diamond bow design and Oli made his wedding ring HIMSELF out of part of one of his bicycles - How cool is that!! Oh and the groom got covered in cake after Megan shoved the slice of cake on his face after they cut the cake! The whole day was amazing, so relaxed but so much fun. I had a great time and thank you again Megan & Oli and your family and friends for being so welcoming, funny and lovely! I hope you enjoy looking through these images, to view the rest of the wedding images from this special day or to order any prints for yourself, please contact the bride and groom for the password before finding their online gallery here. Enjoy...

Hollie & Dan / Whitchurch Family Estate Wedding

After a wonderful Christmas and New Year I have finally got round to blogging this absolute stunner of a wedding day! This beautiful day was the last of my own wedding's of 2016 and it was definitely a feast for the eyes! Hollie and Dan arranged to meet me and chat about their Whitchurch wedding plans at Dan's Auntie's Home. I could tell straight away their wedding day was going to be stunning, upon arriving at the impressive Roundwood Estate I was greeted with gorgeous landscaped gardens, koi ponds, bridges, and the most beautiful views across the estate - it could easily be mistaken for a french chateau.

Despite a little afternoon shower, Hollie & Dan's wedding definitely did not disappoint! The sun soon came out after we returned from their Whitchurch wedding ceremony at Saint John Fisher Church, which meant we were able to make the most of the gorgeous house and grounds at Roundwood Estate for all our photographs. The happy couple and their guests then found their seats in the beautifully decorated house to enjoy a delicious meal by Red Cherry Catering - a local wedding caterer in Dorset who I would highly recommend! Myself and my second shooter Matt Hardy managed to steal the couple away from their guests to take some creative couple portraits during the last few minutes of sunshine. After a performance by a group of local singers, we then all made our way down the fairy-lit path to the black barn where the Groom and his Brother's set up their band and everyone partied the night away! We had a fabulous time and thank you again Hollie & Dan for inviting us to capture your beautiful day! To view the rest of the wedding images from this special day or to order any prints for yourself, please contact the bride and groom for the password before finding their online gallery here. Enjoy...

Abigail & Lee / Tyrrells Ford Hotel Wedding

I was over the moon last year when Abigail and Lee asked if I could be their wedding photographer - I knew it was sure to be a wonderful day! I was a close friend of one of her brother's whilst we were teenagers so knew what a lovely, welcoming and very talented family they all are. It was lovely to see that Abigail & Lee were still together after all these years and to see how all the family had grown (and to say hello to their lovely black Labrador, Max!). Abigail and Lee chose the perfect day to get married - Bright, warm sunshine! I started the day with the stunning bride and her parents and bridesmaids at her family home (just around the corner from my mine!), whilst Nicola from Nicola Streader Photography met Lee and the boys at Tyrrells Ford Hotel where they hired a red vintage bus to take them all from the hotel to the church. There were so many special touches to their day - The gorgeous horse drawn carriage, a brother playing the piano at Crowe Hill Church, everyone joining in with the amazing Ceilidh at the Tyrrells Ford Hotel, a surprise duet from one of the bridesmaids and ushers and an even bigger surprise for everyone when Lee, Abigail's Father and her brothers all joined each other on the dance floor to serenade her.  It was lovely to work alongside Bryony from BCT videos, we all had a fabulous day and thank you again Abigail and Lee and your families for being so warm, welcoming and amazing! To view the rest of the wedding images from this special day or to order any prints for yourself, please contact the bride and groom for the password before finding their online gallery here. Grab a cuppa (or a cheeky glass of prosecco!) and enjoy...

Bride and Groom by lights at Balmer Lawn Hotel

Michelle & Paul / Highcliffe Castle & Balmer Lawn Wedding

'Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale'. Michelle & Paul's special day looked just like how you imagine a fairytale wedding at the stunning Highcliffe Castle which was filled with fabulous blooms by the talented Jennifer Poynter.

Bride having make-up applied at New Forest HotelI started the day bright and early with Michelle and her bridesmaids at the Balmer Lawn Hotel in the New Forest whilst Andrew from Andrew Christopher Photography was with Paul and the boys at the couples home near Ringwood.

Paul asked his two sons to be ushers and they had the great responsibility of presenting the wedding rings during the ceremony - a very special moment! Paul's daughter was their flower-girl who gave her Dad the biggest, loveliest hug when she walked down the aisle.Ring bearers during vows at Highcliffe Castle WeddingWedding Ceremony at Highcliffe CastleHappy couple signing the register at Highcliffe Wedding

Highcliffe Castle has the most gorgeous natural light flooding in from all the windows which overlook the gardens. It was a photographer's dream to capture! After their ceremony we used the wonderful grounds for the group photographs, then myself and the happy couple walked down to the beach for some couple portraits whilst the guests made their way across the New Forest to the Balmer Lawn Wedding Reception.

The marquee at Balmer Lawn Hotel looked absolutely stunning, Jennifer Poynter Flowers had created gorgeous floral displays and decorated an incredible 4-tier naked wedding cake which was made by a friend of the bride and groom - It looked (and smelt) delicious!

Just like Michelle & Paul, their guests were a great laugh. One guest even asked if I could pretend he was famous whilst I was photographing him - I do love funny requests!

Whilst the marquee got ready for the band and the guests hit the bar, Andrew and myself took Michelle & Paul away for a quick few photographs around the grounds of the Balmer Lawn Hotel. Then all that was left was to cut the cake and the first dance then we let the happy couple and their guests party into the night! To view the rest of their wedding images please contact the bride and groom for the password before finding their online gallery here.Thank you Michelle & Paul for letting me be part of your very special day!

Damerham Village Hall Wedding Reception

Joel & Daniela / Alderholt & Damerham Hall Wedding

"You can't control everything. Sometimes you just need to relax and have faith that things will work out." All forecasts leading up to Joel and Daniela's special day were predicting heavy rain and thunderstorms, even on my way to their Alderholt church ceremony it was still forecasting a thunderstorm right in the middle of when we had planned to do group photographs at Damerham Hall. But not one drop of rain hit the ground, instead we were blessed with the most beautiful sunshine all day for their Dorset wedding!
Bride getting ready at home in Ringwood with bouquet and dress
I started the day with the bride, Daniela, and her lovely bridesmaids at her home in St. Ives near Ringwood. Daniela wore a stunning lace dress and sash from Isobel's Bridal & Groom in Parkstone with her bridesmaids in beautiful blue lace midi dresses by Chi Chi London at Asos. Whilst I was capturing the morning with the ladies, Louise from Louise Emily Photography was with the groom, Joel, and his best men and parents.

Daniela and her father arrived at Alderholt Church in a lovely classic red Mini. It was almost identical to the first car that Joel owned!

It was a beautiful ceremony at Alderholt Church filled with joyful singing, heartfelt prayer and lots of emotion - from happy tears as Daniela walked down the aisle, to tears of laughter as Joel cheered after they said 'I do'.Praise and singing at Alderholt ChurchBlack and white photo of singing, children and a selfie at Alderholt Church

The whole day felt completely relaxed, personal and fun - which you can see by all the smiles on everyone!

Confetti outside Alderholt Church

Daniela is Italian and there were plenty of wonderful Italian influences throughout the day - Giggi's Ice-cream was served after the ceremony, they hired a Jalopy Pizza truck for their wedding breakfast at Damerham Hall. As well as gummy pizza's for wedding favours and all toasts were washed down with shots of limoncello!

As you can see the beautiful Italian food and drink was going down very well with the guests! Next were the speeches which were the perfect mixture of humour and sentiment. Joel's younger Brother created a hilarious slideshow of embarrassing family photographs from Joel's childhood, which were also hung up around the venue for everyone's amusement.

Speeches and reception fun at Damerham Village Hall

Damerham Village Hall is surrounded by beautiful trees, a quaint little bridge and a lovely stream. I was over the moon that the dreaded rain never arrived so we were able to do all our group photographs outside in the gardens and we had lots of fun doing so! Group photo fun at Damerham Hall Reception

I adore Joel & Daniela's couple shots, so much gorgeous greenery! During their pre-wedding shoot we stopped of at Ringwood Forest after Damerham Hall, and I was so excited when they said they wanted to take a detour to the forest after the wedding ceremony!

Bride and Groom at Ringwood ForestBride and Groom at Damerham Village Hall

Joel is part of a band with other members from his church, who surprised him by setting up their band set to get the party started after the first dance! After lots of singing and dancing (especially some amazing moves by Father of the Bride!) the happy couple then exited through a tunnel of sparklers where their carriage awaited.

Lauren & Dave / Eling Church & Emery Down Village Hall Wedding

'All you need is love... and cake!' Or in Lauren & Dave's opinion... a village hall filled with cakes! Seriously, I have never seen a room filled with so many different gorgeous cakes! It was an afternoon tea delight at their Emery Down Village Hall wedding reception after their lovely Eling Church ceremony. Whilst editing their photographs I had to always have cake on stand-by for the unavoidable cravings!

Thank you to the lovely Emma Moore from Emma Moore Photography who was my second shooter for the day!

Selection of bride and groom prep photographs at Eling homeI started the day with Lauren whilst she had her hair and make-up done by the talented Miriam King at her parent's home in Southampton, whilst Emma captured Dave and the boys getting ready at the couple's home in Totton. The couple have a gorgeous little girl called Ava-Rose, who was rather pleased with all the attention she was receiving - a natural in front of the camera after her baby photoshoot a few months ago!

Lauren booked a perfectly vintage styled VW camper (named Mr Happy) to take her dad, bridesmaids and herself to Eling Church for the ceremony. St Mary's Church at Eling is just up a little hill from a gorgeous quay and surrounded by woodland - perfect for couple photographs of Lauren & Dave after their ceremony!

Styled by Fundoo Weddings, the hall looked absolutely amazing with pastel bunting, pom poms and a sweet-tooth's haven with a candy cart, beautiful wedding cakes and cupcakes, as well as a delightful afternoon tea by Forget Me Not Elegant Events washed down with cocktails from Tom's Bespoke Bartending Co. Lauren gave me a slice of the chocolate cake (one of many cakes on their table!) and I have to say it was the best chocolate cake I have ever eaten!
