The pretty village of Durley, the lovely rural Hampshire setting, the floral details, together with the glorious summer day all combined to give Clare and Matt the quintessential English country wedding day – and lots of visual treats for the wedding photographer !
Matt and Clare had booked me 20 months or so before the wedding day, so a great deal of work and planning had gone into this sumptuous wedding in that time – I hope the photos show it off !! Clare’s parents hosted the reception at their Hampshire farm, with a splendid marquee in a field and I started off here, shooting lots of details of the decorations and beautiful floral pieces designed by Jay Archer.
Then some photos of Mrs Collins fastening Clare’s very beautiful dress (see Brides of Winchester) as the farmhouse got ‘busy’ with the bridesmaids getting ready (checking/counting petticoats), Dad directing and Clare’s brother searching for his cravat…..
