Family & Engagement Photography in Hampshire – Jessica & Pete’s gorgeous little family

Family wedding photography in HampshireLast week I had the fabulous task of photographing Jessica & Pete’s engagement shoot in Jessica’s Mum’s beautiful garden so of course it was only natural that their gorgeous little boys Rhys and Jasper joined in the fun too! This lovely pair are getting married at Rhinefield House this summer with a Summer Fete style wedding – how amazing does that sound?! I absolutely can’t wait to be part of their day, I know it’ll be fantastic.

Jessica writes a warm, funny and honest blog called Lilypod and Sweetpea about her adventures of being a Mum. Definitely check it out, especially if you have little ones too! Thanks for having me over guys, roll on the Summer!

Marquee Wedding in Hampshire – Sarah & Dan

Marquee Wedding in Hampshire – Sarah & Dan

2015-04-19_0024As a Hampshire wedding photographer I love all types of weddings, from barns to hotels to village halls, but one of my absolute favourite types to shoot is a marquee wedding in a garden. When Sarah & Dan told me this was what they had planned for their day I just knew it would be fabulous. Sarah’s parents hosted the marquee wedding in their beautiful and large garden in Hampshire – the perfect setting for such a special day. Sarah’s Dad mentioned during the speeches later in the day that Sarah’s Mum and him had always dreamed that one day Sarah would get married in the little church down the road and then celebrate her marriage back at their house.

When I arrived in the morning I got busy capturing everyone getting ready for the day ahead. Whilst Sarah and her bridesmaids put their make up on upstairs Vanilla Catering busied themselves with the preparation of the food and drinks as the final touches of decor were being put in the marquee. The patio outside was lined with spring flowers and the side of the house covered in bright and colourful bunting; there was no mistaking a fabulous party was about to take place!

I met Dan at St Leonard’s Church in Burseldon, Hampshire, just down the road where he was nervously greeting guests and welcoming friends and family. The church was small but beautifully decorated in flowers and had even covered the window ledges with daffodils reminding everyone that spring had definitely begun.

After a very heartfelt service held by the lovely and welcoming vicar, Sarah & Dan left the church under an archway if oars – a nod to the fact they met each other at rowing club all that time ago. They were then met with a sea of confetti before jumping into the vintage car which had been hired for them as a total surprise. On the way back to the marquee, we stopped off at a few pretty locations for some photos, giving us a great opportunity to snap away from the crowd and to also help let the day sink in for Sarah & Dan. Once back at the marquee, friends and family chatted over the canapes whilst we took a handful of family pictures.

Once inside the marquee, everyone enjoyed an amazing 3 course meal, which my second photographer Dan and I were lucky enough to also indulge in. I couldn’t resist taking pictures of it, it was so pretty! Some wonderful speeches ensured with some very funny moments before everyone danced the night away in front of the brilliant band. As marquee weddings go this was definitely one of my favourites! Thank you so much for having me there, I loved every minute.
