Beaulieu Treehouses Wedding – Sian & Jordan

Beaulieu Treehouses weddingSian and Jordan weren’t about to allow a bit of rain stop their incredible day at one of my favourite ever wedding venues – Beaulieu Treehouses in Hampshire. In fact, spirits were so high and everyone had so much fun, I doubt they even noticed!

Getting ready at The Crown in Lyndhurst Sian had her make up done by the fabulous Frances Moore MUA, who it’s always lovely to see on the morning of a wedding. Sian wore a classically beautiful gown with lace and layers, which perfectly complimented the blue shades of the bridesmaids dresses.

I’m always so excited to photograph a wedding at the Beaulieu Treehouses –  its one of those quirky venues here in Hampshire that ticks a lot of boxes; outdoor, a bit unique, has a meadow and a fire pit near by…Oh and a rope bridge too, perfect!

We luckily dodged the showers after the ceremony when we all went outside for some family photos during the canapes, then Sian, Jordan and I ventured into the woods for some couple shots.

After the delicious meal of breads, salads, meat and cheeses, Sian & Jordan cut the cake, before guests were treated to ice cream from a cart outside the venue then warm apple juice and whisky at the fire pit. And of course, toasted marshmallows on sticks!

This day was truly special, everyone made Dan and I feel so comfortable and welcomed, thank you! Congratulations to you both, thank you so much for choosing me.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from their lovely day – thank you to Dan who second shot for me, some of these photos are his.

I absolutely love a quirky wedding venue and there is none more quirky and just so flippin’ cool than Beaulieu Treehouse in The New Forest at the Countryside Education Centre. It is exactly as awesome as it sounds; a real woodland wedding treat, complete with a rope bridge to boot!

As a recommended supplier of the venue I’m very lucky to get to shoot there regularly, and so I’ve compiled some of my favourite photos to give you some real wedding inspiration below. As you can see, the treehouses are nestled on the edge of the woods, with a clearing out the front with a perfect space to hold a decent sized crowd for reception drinks and of course, confetti!

After the wedding ceremony, which can be in either of the treehouses, guests are free to wander the grounds and take in the peaceful views or tuck in to the tasty canapes and nibbles. You can choose to either stay around the treehouses, or move on down to the meadow, where you can have your reception out in the open or under a marquee. You could even hire some lawn games!

The woods make a beautiful setting for some romantic couple shots and are ideal for family group photos as it’s cool and shaded in the summer and offer protection on rainy days. Back up at the treehouses for dinner, you can opt for a yummy summer BBQ, or a 3 course sit down, whatever you fancy. And then for speeches, you could either keep your guests seated at their tables, or for something a bit different why not all walk en mass down to the fire pit! There you could sip hot cider, toast marshmallows and enjoy the warmth of the fire as you listen to the speeches.

Beaulieu Treehouses in Hampshire is such a special and unique venue. However if you think you’d like to book it for your wedding you’d better be quick as they only book 12 a year!

Beaulieu Treehouse Wedding Photography – Kate & John

treehouse_wedding_beaulieu_001Kate & John’s Treehouse wedding in Beaulieu was seriously brilliant in so, so many ways. Not least because they picked one of the most unusual and quirky venues in Hampshire – how utterly wonderful to get married in a treehouse above the trees!? This wedding had loads of fabulous touches, like superhero details and Lego men favors…o, and a 1990’s music evening sound track! This is exactly the type of wedding where I wish I’d been a guest, SO much fun! I absolutely loved the fact they did their speeches around the fire pit in the evening over cups of hot cider, heaven 🙂

Congratulations you two, what a perfect day. Thank you to my lovely Ange for helping me shoot part of the day, some of these photos are her’s.

Beaulieu Treehouse Wedding – Carlie & Tania

Like Treehouses? Check. Like The New Forest? Check. Like Alice in Wonderland? Check. Then you’ll LOVE Carlie and Tania’s Beaulieu Treehouse wedding! These two girls really know how to style a wedding and how to throw a party.
Carlie and Tania arrived together to Beaulieu Treehouse in the New Forest in a bright red camper van before being escorted down the aisle and to ‘I do’ by their dads. Every part of the two treehouses and the surrounding woods was decorated in Alice in Wonderland themed memorabilia such a giant playing cards and ‘drink me’ vials (plus I was very happy to see flamingos there too) 😉
As guests enjoyed their BBQ we took the opportunity to sneak out for sunset photos on the meadow behind the treehouses, before Tania and Carlie joined their guests again for the evening party.
What an awesome day, thank you so much for having me there! xx
