Bartley Lodge in Southampton is one of my favourite venues – it’s so cosy and homely with such gorgeous gardens that I was over the moon when Laura & Arran booked me to photograph their special day. I knew it would be perfect for a winter wedding too, because even when the flowers aren’t in bloom there still so much greenery about and the dark paneled walls inside give it such a warm feeling.
Laura & Arran’s wedding was styled beautifully, with soft pink pastels and roses, which looked gorgeous next to the boys’ smart tux suits. I love a man in a tux! They were brilliant enough to brave to cold with me and to wander around the grounds taking couples photos as well as their family photos before everyone went inside for a delicious meal and some very, very funny speeches. Because the night drew in quickly, we took advantage of the dark and got everyone out for a sparkler photo, which is always great fun at every wedding!
I had so much fun with these two, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your day! I’m very honoured to be a little part of it. A bug thank you to Ange too who shot along side me, some of these photos are hers.
