Hampshire Wedding Photographer – best of 2018!

Hampshire Wedding Photographer – best of 2018

O my goodness – how do I even begin to put into words how amazing 2018 has been?! First of all, the year FLEW by, I can’t believe I’m sat at my desk again contacting all of my lovely 2019 couples to book in their planning meetings when I was only here doing this for the 2018 guys 5 minutes ago. This year just seemed really easy, with gorgeous weather, gorgeous venues and even more gorgeous couples with big smiles and even bigger hearts. I’ve honestly loved this year so, so much.

I’ll never ever take for granted the trust my couples give to me with capturing their most awesome day – I know what a privilege and honour this is. You allow me to do something that makes me truly happy in a vocation that I love, so for that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

So to each and everyone of my fabulous 31 couples in 2018, THANK YOU, and the happiest of New Years. Ooh, and…can you spot you??

Love, Mia xx

The Mill at Gordleton Wedding – Hannah & Tom

The Mill at GordletonGoodness me, what a gorgeous new wedding venue The Mill at Gordleton is! Just on the edge of The New Forest, Goldleton Mill is a lovely counrty pub, serving delicious food and drinks. Although they’ve been holding small weddings for a while, they have only recently gone through a whole new refit, and have had a huge white marquee erected in the gorgeous gardens, so are now able to hold large weddings with lots of guests. The most wonderful thing about The Mill at Gordleton though, is that you can have your wedding outside in the gorgeous gardens; right next to the water. That’s exactly what Hannah & Tom did one sunny day in August – they had my favourite celebrate, David, conduct their wedding in front of their nearest and dearest, in the beautiful sunshine.

The Mill at Gordleton is fast becoming one of my favourite new venues – it ticks SO many boxes for me and the types of weddings I absolutely love to shoot. The gardens have kooky and quirky pieces of art hidden among the flowers and an abundance of wonderful little secret spots which Hannah & Tom had their photos taken in.

One of my favourite things about Hannah & Tom’s wedding, was the incredible decor they pulled off inside their marquee. The styling was breathtaking; I think I said ‘O my goodness, wow’ about a thousand times. The garden marquee was dripping in flowers – all pinks and mauves, with real wild berries and figs. The name places were flower inspired too, with beautiful handmade name places and of course, a naked wedding cake!

Such a gorgeous day, thank you so much for having me along to share it with you both, it’s been an absolute delight to get to know you both.

Hampshire Garden Marquee Wedding – Lauren & Harry

Garden Marquee WeddingOne of my absolute favourite types of weddings to shoot in the world is garden marquee weddings on private land. They’re always so relaxed and so much fun – you can put your personality and stamp on the day with absolutely no restrictions from anyone else and you can decorate the wedding exactly how you choose. Lauren & Harry’s wedding was no exception – the wedding was held in the Church next door to Harry’s childhood home and then the reception in the family garden inside a huge marquee. They house attached to the garden is simply beautiful – we wandered around the grounds for their couple shots and used the fabulous front of the house as a backdrop.

Although they hid from my camera on the day, Harry’s family garden homes several beautiful peacocks, and so little peacock touches were dotted around in the decor and even on the cake. Harry & Lauren’s wedding had so much colour everywhere, from the bouquets to the ceiling of the marquee, to the handmade paper birds…all so wonderful.

I’m so delighted to have been a little part of this gorgeous wedding, thank you so much for having Emma and I along! Some of these photos are Emma’s.

Rhinefield House Wedding – Amy & Kudzi

Rhinefield House

O Rhinefield House, how I love you! This venue is the most fabulous place to photograph – buried deep in The New Forest in Hampshire, Rhinefield House is surrounded by ancient trees and woodland. The gardens are simply beautiful; with tall blue gates and flowers with bright, bursts of colour.

Amy & Kudzi said their vows at St Saviours Church in The New Forest in front of their nearest and dearest, before leaving to a good old soaking of confetti. We stopped off on the way to Rhinefield for some photos, however because a storm was on the way it was extremely windy – not ideal for couple’s photos however the light was incredible! Luckily, the weather held off and we were able to capture the family photos outside in the lovely gardens at the hotel, before everyone went in for their dinner. Sometimes if the weather is a bit dodgy in the daytime, we are rewarded with a glorious sunset later on, and so happily we were able to pop out in the evening for some more photos, just as the sun dipped down behind the trees.

What a wonderful day, thank you to you both for making Holly and I feel so welcome. Thank you too to Holly who shot alongside me, some of these photos are hers.
