On Thursday we joined Rachel and Christian for their beautiful wedding at the Skylark Golf and country club at Skylark Meadows in Fareham for what was the hottest day of the year so far and a perfect way to start the holiday weekend.
We started our day in the nearby Solent Hotel which is another wedding venue for preparations with Rachel and the bridesmaids and had a great hour capturing the girls getting nervous and lots of beautiful details as well as the lovely moment Rachel’s mum and dad arrived before we headed off up the road to Skylark Meadows.
Skylark Meadows is a new wedding venue for us but we have 4 weddings booked this year so I am sure we will get to know it very well as the season goes on. We met with Christian and the boys for a few photos and then as the guests filtered into the beautiful barn I hear the Bentley arriving with Rachel and her dad. I was greeted with the best smile from our gorgeous bride and this smile never left her all day.
Rachel walked into the barn looking amazing to a hushed room and down to her very nervous Christian. Rachel and Christian were then married in a beautiful ceremony interrupted only by beams of sunlight which was just amazing. Afterwards we left the barn for a small area outside which is used for hugs and kisses and family groups. This was the only let down for such a beautiful venue which could in fact be perfect if only they had another space allocated for this. But after the family groups we were all invited over to the main building for drinks and nibbles.
After this Sue and I took Rachel and Christian off on a couple of golf buggies to get some shots around the course and boundaries which were lovely and will help to make this a beautiful wedding album. Despite the threat of Adders I am pleased to say we all made it back safely 🙂 The grounds are just splendid.
Back into the main building and a few details before dinner. After the wedding meal we had the speeches which were short and sharp but 6 of them so very entertaining indeed. Lots of drinking, eating and laughing later we setup our Funtime Foto’s for an hour of dress up whilst we waited for the evening guests and eventually cake cutting and first dance.
As I said it was our first wedding at Skylark and the staff were absolutely amazing and could not have been more helpful, Shame about the “group photo” positioning but hey ho if you book your wedding here they will apparently make you aware of this although Rachel and Christian were not 🙂 overall its a very nice venue and I look forward to the next one in a few weeks.
Rachel and Christian had the most amazing day and Sue and I loved every minute of it so thank you guys you were just awesome X
Here are a few photos from this wonderful wedding I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,
