Bartley Lodge Winter Wedding – Laura & Arran

Bartley Lodge winter weddingBartley 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.

Bartley Lodge Wedding – Danni & Joe

Bartley LodgeBartley Lodge is a gorgeous boutique hotel, nestled in among the trees in the beautiful The New Forest. It’s small enough to feel intimate but big enough to feel grand and exclusive, with huge flowery gardens and enormously tall trees peering over it. Can you tell I love it here?! So yes, I was delighted when Danni & Joe asked me to photograph their wedding at the wonderful Bartley Lodge.

Thank you so much for having Emma and I along, we had such a lovely afternoon with you all! And thank you for introducing me to the wonder that is Macaroons, I’ve been dreaming about those ever since! Congratulations again, lovelies xx

The Elvetham Wedding – Izzi & David

Elvetham Hotel

What a wonderful celebration I get to show you all today on the blog! Izzi and David got married at the beautiful countryside Church of the Holyrood here in Hampshire and later on in the grand Elvetham Hotel. Such a gorgeous and happy day!

Izzi looked ever the English rose in wonderful her lace gown and her bridesmaids looked so fresh in their mint green dresses. In the church all the little floral touches just added to the traditional summer wedding feel that the couple had envisioned.

The Church of the Holyrood is set in such an idyllic part of the county, complete with a little duck pond and winding lanes. In contrast the stunning Elvetham Hotel is certainly a manor house, with huge grounds, rooms with antique detailing and did you see the outside of the hotel? It is just so gorgeous!

We managed to get some really good weather on the day so as the guests enjoyed some time on the lawn drinking in their surroundings we snuck off into the grounds to get some couples shots just before everyone went inside for dinner and heartfelt speeches. There was even an impromptu game of croquet! Which fitted perfectly with the surroundings.

Really lovely day guys, hope you enjoyed dancing the night away too! Thank you for letting me be a tiny part of your day, Leoni and I loved every minute. xx

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