On Sunday we joined Will and Jade-Marie for their lovely wedding at the beautiful Careys Manor hotel in the New Forest. For a complete change it was a beautiful sunny August Sunday so lots of happy people as we arrived for preparations. We found Jade-Marie in a suite with the girls and spent an hour or so capturing some lovely details and the manic’ness of all the 5 children 😀 as well as Jade-Marie stepping into her beautiful wedding dress and her 2 brothers seeing her in her dress for the first time.
After a short walk to see the registrars we were off to get married. The ceremony room was beautifully decorated and perfectly silent as the bridesmaids and children came in one by one, Will and Jade-Marie’s son Joseph was the exception because he literally sprinted down towards Daddy. It was just perfect. Jade-Marie then came in with her 2 brothers and we had a lovely ceremony. Joseph was the ring bearer and all went very well. Afterwards we headed out into the sunshine for a traditional sword arch followed by confetti.
We then spent a couple of hours photographing family and friends as well as our formal shots and couple shots including a few in the secret gardens. The groups at Careys Manor consist mostly of the front area but its broken top into sections quite nicely and we are never more than a few metres from all the action. After out time outside we were then called into dinner and to break with tradition it was speeches first. 3 relatively quick speeches later it was time for food, Carey’s Manor is known for their food so I am sure it was delightful.
During the meal the inevitable rain came BOO! so we were inside the various lounges enjoying a little time before the party started. The DJ Toby decided to bring the first dance forward and after cake cutting thats exactly what we did, danced and played with balloons 💕 The dancing was fun but also brought our day to an end. Absolutely lovely day with wonderful people. Sue and I headed home shattered and ready for a snooze!
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,
