Wedding photos from Lianne and Justin’s wedding at Christchurch and Gordleton Mill

Yippee !! Another perfect spring day for wedding photos in west Hampshire and the Dorset coast ! I met up with Lianne and her trio of bridesmaids Christine, Kim and Emma at The Kings Hotel in Christchurch. There was another separate wedding party getting ready in a nearby room, but after several enquiries and snooping past doorways, I was fairly confident that I had the correct one. Preparations were pretty well at the final stages by then; odd hair tweak here, shoe strap there, sip of bubbly here, there and everywhere. The ceremony took place at St Katherine’s church in Christchurch, [...]

Photos from Jim and Martina’s wedding at Lainston Country House Hotel Winchester

For a wedding photographer, its always a pleasure to shoot at the superb Lainston Country House Hotel nr Winchester in Hampshire. Jim and Martina’s wedding was no exception with beautiful spring sunshine and outdoor ceremony in the lovely grounds of the hotel – picture perfect ! Martina’s preparations took place in one of the lavish four poster bedrooms of the hotel, while Jim and the best man strode about downstairs purposefully checking this and that. One of the best man’s tasks was a crash course in falconry to enable a bird of prey to fly to him at his call, [...]

Wedding photos from Julian & Amanda’s day at Chawton House and The Long Barn in Newton Valence

It was a gorgeous day for wedding photos for Amanda & Julian’s Hampshire wedding. All the elements came together perfectly for the quintessential classic vintage English country wedding with a Scandinavian twist ! First location was the couple’s cottage in Newton Valence with Norwegian flag on the door ! Amanda’s father and Julian were just fixing button holes before Julian made scarce out the side door, so as not to see his bride to be getting ready in the sitting room !  Her beautiful vintage dress designed by Jane Bourvis was also hidden hanging behind the spare bedroom door. With [...]

Fiona & Elgar’s colourful wedding at The Montagu Arms Hotel

For colourful wedding photography, it didn’t get much better than at Fiona and Elgar’s super wedding day at The Montagu Arms Hotel in Beaulieu !! After a long dull chilly month it felt as if all the guests had each bought a bucket of sunshine with them, whether they were a part of the NZ, Aussie, Swedish, Turkish gangs……. or other multiple guest destinations. Sunshine was radiating out in all directions to showcase the colouful flowers, decorations, outfits, gardens, cakes……. It was a lovely relaxed day with a lunch time ceremony, so the afternoon could be spent basking in the [...]

Wedding Photos from Mary & John’s wedding at Chewton Glen

The superb Chewton Glen Hotel and grounds provided the lavish setting for wedding photos for Mary and John. Mary’s family had travelled over from Canada (where it has been -20 degrees C) and Mary’s father remarked that it was always fine weather when he came to UK. Not wanting to shatter his illusion, I enthused that of course we enjoyed a warm temperate climate here, indicating the blue skies and spring flowers as the norm and not mentioning the wettest winter on record had only just started to dry out !! Mary and Johns wedding was an intimate family gathering, [...]
