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
