Terry & Sarah @ The Elvetham

On Saturday we joined Terry and Sarah at The Elvetham Hotel for there wedding on what turned out to be an amazing september day.  We started the day with Sarah and her bridesmaids for some relaxed prep shots before meeting with Terry and the lads in the bar !    we then had a wonderful ceremony and then drinks on the lawn which was beautiful.

After a lovely wedding breakfast and some fun speeches we headed out for a few evening shots and then some serious dancing before a break for the Hog Roast which was very scrummy and moreish,

Later in the evening we were treated to a magnificent firework display which finished our evening.

Phil and Rebecca’s e-shoot

Last week we met with Phil and Rebecca for their engagement shoot in our studio in Bassett Southampton, We are photographing Phil and Rebecca’s wedding next April and as with all our clients we offered them a shoot, it was great fun and we got some fab photos which is exactly how these shoots should be.

We are both looking forward to Phil and Rebecca’s wedding which is in the beautiful Hedsor House in Taplow Bucks and of course we are looking forward to more fantastic photos.

New toys, opp’s I mean tools

After moving across to Nikon earlier this year and after a fantastic wedding season we decided to buy another camera, This time its Nikon’s flagship D3X which is beyond fantastic and can only be describes as an awesome camera, and with nearly 25 million pixels to play with its perfect for our studio and our beautiful portraits.

It was a huge investment but one we think you will notice as we post a few photos in a week or 2,  Sue & I have always used pro cameras despite the fact that we could at least half our equipment costs if we used lesser models like a lot of people out there, We take comfort in knowing that we have the best equipment money can buy and that tied with us two being the best photographers money can buy, its a win win situation 🙂

We will post a few portrait very soon,

Jules

Ollie and Michelle @ Manor Barn

On Saturday we joined Ollie and Michelle for their wedding at Manor Barn in Buriton and just as expected it was a day filled with tears and laughter.  We arrived at Manor Barn to find Michelle and her parents were enjoying a picnic on the lawns underneath the chestnut tree which is a pretty perfect day to start any day and especially your wedding day, Michelle  bluntly refused to share her balaclava (ha ha) cakes but apart from that it was perfect.  We  then started our day with Michelle and her Mum for some preparation photos before being joined by her sister and day, the whole day was very relaxed and this all started here.

We then met with Ollie and the boys who were dead set on capturing a chicken for some reason 🙂  anyway after several failed attempts we left them to it and joined Michelle ready for an amazingly emotional service thanks to the Mums and their readings.

Then out onto the lawns for some lovely photos and drinks before heading on down to the duck pond to feed the ducks with all the children, Ollie was the only naughty one who refused to give his bread to the ducks 🙂   (see Ollie, I told you I would get my own back)  after the ducks we all headed back to the barn and into diner which was roast lamb cooke by these guys and it was scrummy, a few drinks later and the speeches started which again were very emotional,

We finished our day with some dancing and then a lovely night shot,  Thanks guys, we will remember your wedding for a long while to come, great venue, great guests and you were a great couple.

Gareth and Lyndsey @ the Marriott Bournemouth

Our second wedding this weekend was with Gareth and Lyndsey who were recommended to us by Steve and Helen who’s wedding we shot a couple of years ago in Rhinefield.  We started our day with Gareth at home before leaving to meet the land train at Allum Chime, after a beer at the local bar we all boarder the land train for the short journey to the cliff top lift which took us right up to the hotel and to meet Lyndsey who was getting ready there.  After a few prep shots we headed off for the ceremony which was out in the pergola area and what a wonderful day it turned out to be for it.

After the ceremony and a few relaxed photos we headed on into the wedding breakfast, unfortunately David, Gareth’s dad was taken poorly then and missed the rest of the wedding but Sue & I were pleased to hear of some progress the next day and continue to wish him our very best for a speedy recovery.

After the meal we headed down to the Beach for some portraits and tehn back to dance the night away, and boy did everyone have a great night

Thanks for a great day guys
