I can’t even begin to tell you what a joy and privilege photographing James & Chris’ fabulous New Forest wedding at Emery Down Village Hall was! Well I could, but I’d literally be here all night. I LOVE these boys; they’re just so bloomin’ lovely. I knew they would be right from our first planning meeting when they invited me round for Tapas and wine. How could a girl resist?!
Chris & James got married at Salisbury registry office in front of their very best and closest family and friends before we all went into the pretty gardens round the back for some family photos and couple shots. On our way to Emery Down Village Hall, guests popped off to the pub whilst we made a fleeting stop in the New Forest opposite The Drift Inn for some New Foresty couple shots and to make the most of the gorgeous scenery.
Once back at Emery Down Village Hall, guests welcomed James & Chris into the garden under a shower of confetti before everyone went inside for a yummy picnic of meats, cheese and breads. Hilarious speeches were said in the great outdoors giving the lovely team of helpers time to turn the room around ready for the evening party where my favourite DJ Simon played a mix of non cheesy dance floor fillers. These guys also had the best sweety table I’ve ever seen – all garden themed to mark their love of their own garden. My son Ted would have lost his mind!
Thank you both SO much for pulling off the most fabulous day, I’m so happy I could share it with you and even happier I now get to call you both friends. Congratulations guys!

Hampshire Barn Wedding
O gosh I don’t even know where to start with how wonderful yesterday was at Clock Barn in Hampshire! Not only are Della & Keith two of the lovelies people I’ve ever met but they managed to pull off the most fabulous day at my favourite wedding venue…and boy, it was a cracker! It was one of those glorious wedding days when everything was on our side; wonderful people, wonderful venues, wonderful weather…just bloomin’ wonderfulness all round.
Della & her family got ready at Norton Park near Winchester before arriving in classic car style at St Nicholas’ Church in Andover. They had an incredibly lovely vicar who guided them through their vows before everyone spilled out into the church grounds to throw confetti before moving on to Clock Barn for canapes and drinks. All week the weather had promised rain and thunder storms so everyone (especially me!) was delighted when we could enjoy sunshine in the gorgeous gardens and photos on the lawns before heading inside for a delicious 3 course dinner by the fabulous team at Galloping Gourmet.
After dinner we were lucky enough to get the golden hour we had been keeping our fingers and toes crossed for, so we nipped up the road to a nearby cornfield (and you know I love a cornfield!) for a few romantic photos as the sunset over the Hampshire hills.
Thank you soooo much for having Holly and I along, we had the most fantastic day being among your lovely friends and family. You are both beautiful souls and I’ve loved every minute of getting to know you both.
Thank you to Holly for second shooting, some of these photos are hers.
