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.

Southampton Wedding Photographer – Meon Valley Marriott Hotel – Pasquale & Michelle

What a beautiful day for a summer wedding! Pas and Michelle tied the knot at Holy Cross Church in Eastleigh in front of their family and friends, many of which came all the way from Italy to celebrate their day with them. Pas and Michelle had the brilliant idea of popping over the the bandstand in Eastleigh park opposite the church for the family photo after the service, which I loved using as a really fantastic backdrop for the shots!

After the photos we all went back to Meon Valley Marriott Hotel for the wedding breakfast where guests were able to sit outside in the warm sunshine catching up with family and taking in the green surroundings before partying the night away on the dance floor.

I’ve loved being your wedding photographer guys thank you so much for picking me. Many, many congratulations to you both xx

Paul & Hannah’s New Forest sunset engagement shoot!

Of all the places to shoot engagement sessions, I reckon The New Forest is my number one favourite. Every time I go I am reminded of how lucky I am to live only 20 minutes away and I always promise myself I’ll visit more often. I absolutely love how happy Paul and Hannah are in there photos – what an utterly gorgeous pair! I literally can’t wait to shoot their wedding next month.New forest engagement shoot engagement shoot in Hampshire hampshire engagement shoot Hampshire sunset engagement shoot the new forest at sunset sunset engagement shoot couple having their engagement session in the new forest wedding couple in the woods in hampshire silhouette engagement shoot wedding photos in the new forest cute couple in hampshire mia-photography engagement ring in the new forest in hampshire hampshire engagement shoot

Hampshire Wedding Photographer – Ed & Chloe’s vintage wedding at Lainston House, Winchester in Hampshire

O wow, what can I say about Chloe and Ed’s stunning vintage wedding at Lainston House! This was by far one of the most elegant and well styled weddings I’ve ever had the enormous pleasure to photograph. Chloe got ready at home with her favourite ladies and had her make-up done by the lovely Gemma from Potters Beauty Barn and waited for her car to arrive.. or so she thought! Unbeknown to her until that morning, Ed had arranged for a horse drawn carriage to take her and her Dad to Romsey Abbey – what a romantic!

Whilst the girls got themselves ready, my good friend and second photographer Emma Moore met the boys at The Old House at Home pub in Romsey which they enjoyed good food and a bit of dutch courage before arriving at Romsey Abbey to greet their guests. The ceremony was heartfelt and emotional and tears were shed (mainly by Ed!) before a few family formals were taken outside the Abbey.

Once we reached Lainston House in Winchester, guests enjoyed canapes in the garden before going inside for a delicious three course dinner and then speeches, all helpfully directed by Malcolm Jones, the professional toastmaster. Before the evening party got started, Chloe, Ed and I went out to the mini ruins which are in the garden for some couple shots as the sun went down. A lovely day for a lovely couple, thank you so much for choosing me!
