Mark and Bryannie get married :-)

On Saturday we joined Mark and Bryannie for their wedding in Ringwood and who would have thought the day would turn out as it did after the past couple of weeks of our summer heatwave. We woke Friday to miserable rain and again Saturday but with 40-50mph winds thrown into the mix. Ouch, this was going to be tough but thankfully I knew even before I left home that Mark and Bryannie would be smiling no matter what.

Well sure enough we arrived in the morning to meet Bry after the hairdressers for some lovely preparation shots and were greeted with the most amazing smile,  We knew Bryannie because we photographed her lovely sister Erica’s wedding 3 years ago 🙂 after an hour or so preps we headed off to the Ringwood Parish church to meet with Mark and although it was incredibly windy, I am pleased to say the rain had gone 🙂 We spent the next half an hour or so shooting the boys and arriving guests.

I know I occasionally have a rant about vicars and quite deservedly so, But today we were greeted by the vicar who was without a doubt a Christian and if I were to ever recommend a church and vicar it would be this one. Genuinely lovely fella and his only interest was Mark and Bryannie and what was best for them. Awesome the church needs more people like this and I told him so. The ceremony was enjoyable for those that are church goers and those that choose not to. Everyone was welcome in this man’s church.

Bryannie arrived in an absolutely gorgeous Jag which was kindly supplied and driven by a family friend, and hurriedly walked into church alongside an equally excited Dad,  The room was genuinely silenced by just how beautiful she looked as was Mark. The following 45 minutes were absolutely a joy to witness  and the photos are amazing. I love it when we are not only allowed to do our job but actively encouraged too.  Outside to a make shift receiving line, well departure line really and then a confetti line up before we headed to our venue for the day Gaddens in Ringwood.  We stopped as planned on the way for some shots of Mark and Bryannie and then afterwards made our way to the venue to meet the guests. We always do a run through with our couples and often choose places to stop should time allow.

Once at Gaddens, we did a few family groups and then some relaxed photos and lots of fun with “Blue Lightning and the Boys” before everyone was called into dinner. After the mains, we had 2 speeches and then a break for desert, after which we had another awesome speech from Josh the BM and then coffee and afterwards we set up our Funtime foto booth for an hour which as always was a massive hit and a whole lot of fun.

The venue was decorated beautifully. This was a family wedding with lots of very special details, Dad made the table centres, Mom sorted the flowers, the candles were in little glass desert jars, Brianne ate all the deserts 🙂 all in all it made for a beautiful wedding.

We then had yet another speech from our groom Mark which made everyone cry 🙂 and then cake cutting with a lovely sword and into first dance. The dance was great, a few moments later everyone else was invited up and I have honestly never seen so many people dance so quickly. Great day, great people 🙂 A long but very rewarding day and I am pleased to say the weather was super kind to us too. Not only did we avoid the rain that most of Hampshire got, we also were very sheltered from the wind so a very positive win-win today.

Laura and Dan get married

On Saturday we joined Laura and Dan for their wedding at Audleys Wood near basingstoke on yet another beautiful July Saturday so we spent most of the day enjoying the beautiful Audleys wood gardens and grounds.  We started our day with Laura and the girls in one of the suites for some lovely peroration shots and lots of beautiful details. This is always a great way for us to start our wedding days because we get to know the bridesmaids and often Mum too so it helps with our relaxed approach so much.

After wards we headed off for a few shots with Dan and the boys, A few of the lads were held up in traffic so we just concentrated on Dan and the Best Man and did the rest afterwards.

The ceremony was just lovely, I love the ceremony room at Audleys Wood because it has space and light and is very comfortable. A reading or 2 later and we were all ushered out into the sunshine. Almost straight away we headed to the shade because it was honestly unbearable for those dressed up but it was just perfect. A few mingling shots, the family groups and some portraits of the couple all done in perfect time thanks to awesome people.

We then headed inside to the Air Conditioned (thankfully) reception room for dinner followed by speeches.  Afterwards we setup our funtime fotos and spent an hour having sone fun before the evening started with cake cutting and first dance.

All in all a pretty perfect wedding. 10/10 on all counts, maybe a little to hot but hey it will be raining next week so we really cant complain about that can we haha.

O and Dan’s lovely Mum absolutely loved cyclists so we got on like a house on fire 😀

Thanks guys for a lovely wedding day X

Tim and Phillippa and Beatrice have their day

On Saturday we joined Tim and Phillippa for their wedding day and the Christening of their daughter Beatrice at the Bell Inn at Bradshaw and the beautiful Hyde Church in Fordinbridge.

We started our day with Phillippa at her parents house with an hours preparation photos with lots of details including Phillippa’s beautiful gold Jimmy Choo shoes and her beautiful engagement ring, Phillippa love the details that we photograph at Julian Porter Photography  and we love our details especially those Jimmy Choo’s.

We then headed off to the Church to meet Tim. The weather was absolutely shocking with continual blustery rain and wind but inside the church was wonderful so we were very happy.  Tim arrived just in the nik of time so we managed to grab a couple of very quick shots before Phillippa arrived looking splendid in a beautiful silver Rolls Royce.  After a few minutes sorting out Beatrice in the shocking rain we all headed into the sanctuary of the church 🙂  and after a few moments Phillippa was walking down the isle to marry her Tim.

After a beautiful wedding ceremony and a rather enthusiastic church verger (to be honest rather this than the other way ) we were back down to the font for the Baptism of Beatrice which again was a nice service and made the wedding service that little bit more memorable.

Afterwards we stayed in the church for a few family groups before all heading the few miles back to Bradshaw and the Bell Inn.  We had arranged with Tim and Phillippa to stop off on our way at a spot we found for a few photos and we had our white brollies ready but thankfully the weather was starting to clear and we got some beautiful photographs.

Back at the Bell Inn we took a few photos of the guests milling around although it was tight so we took a few more smaller groups outside on the patio before being called into dinner.

After dinner we had the speeches and cake cutting before we setup our FuntimeFotos for an hour which went down very well. Then back into the first dance followed by a few shots outside playing with sparklers.

Sue and I then headed home after another fab winter wedding 🙂
