Saturday’s wonderful winter wedding at The Domus in Beaulieu will go down in my personal history as the windiest wedding yet! Despite the crazy weather we had, Poppy and Ryan had the most beautiful day; saying their vows in front of their loved ones at St John’s Church in Boldre and then onto the glorious Domus in Beaulieu. Bell & Blossom created beautiful bouquets for poppy and her bridesmaids in classic white and thistles, to compliment Ryan’s Scottish heritage and of course, the kilts!
Even when the weather is being tricky I almost always seem to get lucky with the photos to have a small window of dry/calm wind, so we took full advantage when the gale dropped a little and took some photos outside. The best way to deal with strong wind during couples shots is just to go with it, laugh and have fun, and that’s exactly what they did.
The Domus is lovely for winter weddings because it’s so cosy inside with it’s huge, real fireplace and abundance of candles. Poppy & Ryan both have the warmest, loveliest families so I was made to feel right at home. Thank you for being so bloomin’ wonderful, I’ve absolutely loved being part of your day.

The Domus at Beaulieu is an absolute show stopper of a wedding venue – over 800 years old and originally the monks’ dormitory at Beaulieu Abbey. Old tapestries hang on the walls between candles in the windows, so the whole venue feels historic and that little bit magical.
Kerry & Pete’s wedding was simply perfect from start to finish. A unseasonably hot September day meant their guests could wander around the pretty gardens in the sunshine enjoying their drinks and canapes before moving inside for dinner and speeches. Because we had such a bright and sunny day, we were bless with the most incredible golden hour, so nipped outside again for a few minutes to make the most of the gorgeous light.
An absolutely beautiful day, thank you guys so much for having Holly and I along! Here are a few photos to keep you going before the whole set is ready.

It’s been a while since I’ve had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at The Domus in Beaulieu, so I was delighted when Vicki & Simon booked me to capture their day. The Domus is an extremely special and unique wedding venue; an 800 year old Medieval building steeped in tapestries and surrounded in beautiful, original architecture. Vicki & Simon fell in love with it when they saw it, especially as Vicki studied Medieval Studies at University so they knew the venue would be perfect for them!
In an exceptionally cute moment, Vicki & Simon’s absolute poppet of a daughter walked down the aisle holding both her Nanna’s hands, greeting her Dad with a look of total glee. The bridesmaids wore long bluey green dresses with bouquets of soft peaches and greens and with flowers in their hair which looked gorgeous for an early summer wedding.
The weather couldn’t make up it’s mind if it was pouring with rain, intensely sunny, gale force winds or dramatic and cloudy, so we spent most of the afternoon ping ponging back and forth inside and out, reacting to the sky. When they were able, guests wandered around the gorgeous gardens, enjoying a drink or two, before cosying down for dinner back in the Domus, surrounded by candle light. Fabulously funny speeches followed suit, during which we all learned about the hilarious antics of Simon’s stag do (or lack there of), before Vicki & Simon cut into their enormous cake made entirely of CHEESE (a couple after my own heart).
Thank you both for such a wonderful day, you guys made it so much fun. Sending you so much love, here are some highlights <3

Hannah & Dan’s wedding at The Domus in The New Forest in Hampshire was just so flippin’ beautiful!
The Domus is an absolutely incredible venue, it is seeped in history from top to toe. The building is part of the beautiful Beaulieu Estate nestled in the stunning New Forest here in Hampshire, the 800 year old Domus is surrounded by the most gorgeous old ruins in the garden grounds, perfect for creating some cherished memories.
Hannah wanted to look and feel like a princess on her wedding day and she certainly did with style and grace! From the delicate sparkles adorning her gown and jewelry down to the stunning horse and carriage, which no princess should be without!
We were lucky enough to even find a beautiful meadow of summer flowers to spend some time in for their photos, it was bliss! What more would you expect from a wedding held in the beautiful New Forest?
Hannah and Dan also marked their wedding at the Domus by placing a padlock engraved with their names onto a special structure in the gardens along with all the other couples that have shared the privilege, such a special way to remember their day.
The bridesmaids looked fabulous in their soft grey gowns, all smiles and happiness for Hannah & Dan’s wedding. The reception was also held in the beautiful hall, where the guests were treated to lovely opulent table settings with soft lighting, flowers and pearls, before Hannah and Dan and their guests enjoyed dancing the night away.
Congratulations lovelies, thank you for letting me be a little part of your day xx
