The Norton Park Hotel in Winchester was the setting for Claire and Howard’s wedding. The venue is a stylish modern hotel that also offers superb open garden space and grounds beyond, running down to a lake. Great for romantic wedding photography with the full sunshine giving nice contrast of shadow and highlight.
Howard seemed extremely relaxed and organised, ready nice and early, smiling an easy grin as he strolled about with chilled pint in hand (oh it’s so so straightforward for us guys eh?). Claire too was nicely composed as she underwent her bridal transformation, dress adorning her already elegant figure, and just a few tears when Dad popped in to see how things were going!
Then a short walk arm in arm with Dad to the barn for the ceremony. Bit of a kerfuffle getting little ones in line (excellent return of phrase when crestfallen 4 yr old was asked to say “cheese” – “but I can’t say cheese…”) and the procession proceeded down the red carpet.
