Pete and Carol’s wedding at Oakley hall basingstoke

On Saturday Sue & I travelled basingstoke on Saturday for our first wedding at the lovely Oakley Hall to photograph the lovely wedding of Pete and Carol who we mave met at a couple of previous weddings.  Although the weather was not kind to us we did manage to get outside just long enough to do a few family groups which made all the difference to the day. We were very lucky with the venue because inside its beautiful and the staff were very helpful moving furniture etc.

All in all it was a beautiful wedding day despite the rain,  We started our day with Carol for a few relaxed preperation photos before metting Pete and the boys for some equally relaxed photos, we then moved into the ceremony which had a couple of lovely readings before moving back into teh main hall for drinks, we had a lovely couple of hours before the wedding breakfast and onto the speeches, After teh speeches Carol’s 2 boys played solo’s on their guitars and kept us all entertained for 30 minutes before the DJ set up and the dancing commenced.

We met Caril and Pete when we photographed Ben and Emily’s wedding and Dan and Nicola’s wedding and I have a lovely photo of all 6 of them which I will post last.

Great day guys x

This was our amazing 3 couples, Ben and Emily,  Carol and Pete, Dan and Nicola, 3 great couples and 3 great weddings,

A lovely letter from Ash and Jo

This morning we received a lovely letter from Ash and Jo who’s wedding we shot at  Beaulieu Abbey last month and we thought we would share it with you all.

Dear Jules and Sue,

We cannot begin to thank you both for the wonderful photographs you both produced of our magical wedding day. From the outset we felt at ease with you both and everyone at the wedding have commented on how fantastic you both were on the day.

We literally couldn’t be happier with the record you have provided and we simply will never get bored of continually looking at such wonderful pictures.

Thank you so much,

Love Ash and Jo  x

Neil and Rebecca’s wedding at Lainston House Winchester

On Saturday we joined Neil and Rebecca for their amazing wedding at Lainston house, When I say amazing I really do mean amazing 🙂 It was indeed a very lavish affair with 2 best Men, 7 Ushers, 5 Bridesmaids, 5 flower girls, 1 page boy, 5 vintage wedding cars and a beautiful Horse drawn carriage decorated with the family crest, 3 videographers and us 3 photographers……….

We started our day with Rebecca at her parents house which is in the next road up from us for some relaxed preparation and make up (done by Sarah Keenan) photos as well as some fun formal photos in the gardens whilst our 3rd photographer and good pal Gareth Cooper was with Neil and the boys at Neil’s house to cover the lads,  We then met at St Edmunds Church on the Avenue for a beautiful full mass service led by our good friend Father Paul followed by confetti on the steps.

We then headed off to Lainston House, Neil and Rebecca in the Horse Drawn Carriage and everyone else from the bridal party in the cars,  All of the cars were supplied by our very good friend Tony from Apollo Carriage who we have worked with and featured on our blog many times, his range of cars is simply amazing, I will post the details of the beautiful horses soon but I lost the card 🙂

Waiting for us at Lainston House was the most amazing Marquee and a lovely champagne reception with Italian singers and just the perfect afternoon, we spent a couple of hours wandering around taking formal and informal photos of teh guests enjoying themselves which was particularly good for me because I knew lots of there friends from either past weddings or studio work and from growing up where I did.

We then headed into the wedding breakfast for a fun filled bumper few hours and were entertained by the 3 waiters as well as some great dancing and then speeches and then some more dancing and singing and drinking and cake cutting and wow what a cake it was thanks to ispiration cakes and then the bouquet toss and the find the ring game which is apparently an Italian classic at weddings before we moved onto the first (yeah right) dance which was equally as mad as the rest of the dancing,

All in all it was an amazing wedding and I would like to Neil and Becci for looking after us and a great big thanks to Gareth for coming along as well, it was great fun mate.

Now I think I need a week off 🙂    happy days………..

Jules, Sue and Gareth.

Wedding photography @ East Close Hotel in the New Forest Hampshire with Tom and Hannah

On Friday we joined Tom and Hannah for their relaxed and beautiful wedding at the newly opened East Close Hotel in the New Forest on what was a warm but breezy day which thankfully stayed dry. We started our day with Hannah and her parents at her parents home in Nomansland near Salisbury for some very relaxed preparation shots as well as a few lovely portraits in the garden before we headed off to the East Close hotel for the ceremony.

When we arrived we found the boys in the bar and had a few moments with them before Hannah arrived in style being driven by her dad in his Morgan which was amazing.  We then headed into a lovely ceremony and then out onto the lawns for a couple of hours with the guests sipping champagne and enjoying a few nibbles whilst we took some lovely relaxed photos both formal and informal.

After a couple of hours we went into the wedding breakfast which was followed by some great speeches from the usual 3 as well as a few other Norwegian guests and Sam, Hannah’s brother.

We then headed into dance with tunes from Under the Covers which was fab.

We also bumped into Kevin and Rachel who’s wedding we shot back in 2006 which was just great.
