Beautiful wedding with Alex and Becky

On Saturday we joined Alex and Becky for their wedding in the beautiful New Forest at the Bartley Lodge Hotel. It has been a favourite venue of ours for a long time so we were both excited about this day.  We met Alex and Becky when we photographed her sister’s wedding back in 2015, “Ian and Laura’s big day” This was also an amazing day so we had plenty to be excited about. Alex is also now one of my cycling buddies and will be joining my cycling club very soon which is also pretty exciting stuff.

We started our day with Becky and the girls at Dad’s house in Wellow, Once again a lovely peaceful vibe and whilst the girls got ready the bubbles flowed and Sue and I got to work. Lots of beautiful details and preparation shots and with almost every shutter click the weather got brighter and better until all we could see were blue skies.

Sue and I then headed off to Bartley Lodge to meet with Alex and the boys, a few fun shots and a few more details and we were happy and waiting for our beautiful bride. Becky arrived a few minutes later in a truly stunning VW camper “sleepy Jean” supplied by our friends at “Vinnies Vintage Vehicles”  I love when our clients get creative with their wedding transport. 😃 A few photos then into the ceremony for a lovely wedding with probably the most emotional reading from Alex’s Mum, Sue that I have ever hear, Beautiful and heartfelt.

Afterwards, we spilt out into the gardens and the sunshine for a lovely hour enjoying the day, Sue and I took some beautiful photos before heading off with Alex and Becky for a few photos in the New Forest with the Camper. Then back to the family groups and in for the wedding breakfast which started with the speeches. 3 really lovely speeches and then dinner.  Afterwards, we headed back outside for a couple more photos before being called in to cut the cake, just after we were dancing and shortly after that our day came to a close.

I was pretty excited to get home and upload the photos today, sure enough, there were some crackers so after a few facebook teasers Sue and I headed off to bed, tired and very happy.

Another absolutely wonderful wedding with amazing people. I hope you enjoy these taster photos that I hope will keep you going until Alex and Becky return from South Africa.

Thank you, everyone, for making this such an amazing day
