Hywel and Kirsty get married at the beautiful Langrish house

On Saturday Sue and I joined Hywel and Kirsty for our third wedding of the weekend at Langrish house in Petersfield in Hampshire which is a beautiful wedding venue in a gorgeous location and I am sure one we will be working at again soon.

We have been excited about this wedding for a while now because it encompasses 2 of my loves, running and photography Hywel and Kirsty both run in the same club as me and I often run with Kirsty’s dad Chris who is also a Lordshill Road Runner like Sue and I.  We had all initially planned a parkrun together on the morning of the wedding but alas because of the travel and the timings I had to run Southampton parkrun which allowed me to get prep’d for the wedding whilst Chris ran his 100th parkrun in Petersfield, Well done Chris I wish I could have been there.

We started the day (well after my parkrun) with Kirsty and the girls at Langrish and it was already a warm day but not surprisingly we were forecast an afternoon of showers but I was fairly confident the breeze would be on our side today. after an hour or so of beautiful preps and chatting mainly about Daddy Longlegs and eating a few scrummy biscuits 🙂  we headed off to see Hywel and the lads at the church which was just about half a mile away and we met the vicar, Nick who was a lifelong family friend of Chris and Debbie (Kirsty’s Parents) so we were very well received. We shot the boys and the rings and found our spots in the church before Kirsty arrived looking sensational, I cant honestly remember seeing a smile like that as she walked down the crooked pathway hand in hand with her Dad followed by her bridesmaids. Perfect moment………

Into a stunned and silenced church and as she approached the alter and her nervous hubby to be the tears gently rolled down Kirsty’s cheeks to near perfect timing.  The ceremony was just perfect and very personal and I think we were all happy to be cosy in the church because we had the mother of all showers during the ceremony.  Afterwards we left the church and Kirsty decided to leave for Langrish straight away just in case the rain returned and to be fair it was probably a wise decision because at least we then had cover if needed,  thankfully it was not.

We then had a couple of hours out on the lawns in a mixture of beautiful sunshine and a scattering of fluffy clouds so ideal photography weather and we got on with some lovely family groups as well as lots of relaxed guest photos too.  We then took Kirsty and Hywel off for a walk and some photos and then back to enjoy the gardens, the band was playing which Chris is part of so he joined them for a number to too and the whole atmosphere was just perfect unhurried wedding bliss, it pays so much to have space to enjoy this important part of the day and make the world of difference.

We then headed into dinner and afterwards speeches, the 3 speeches were all very good and from the heart and made listening a pleasure, afterwards we headed outside onto the lawns again for 30 minutes whilst the Dj setup, this 30 minutes turned into 90 minutes but it really was a glorious evening and I think everyone was so relaxed, well everyone apart from the wedding coordinator who wanted things to run to time 😀

The cake cutting happened about 9:15 and after that a rather interesting fist dance choice “I Love To Bogie” by  T REX made for some fun photos and got everyone dancing too, then after a slice (or 2) of cake Sue and I headed outside to lease with the firework people who were setting up a surprise that Hywel and Kirsty had organised and kept secret so the next thing was to get everyone outside at 9:50 which we did and then we were treated to the most amazing firework display which was about 5 minutes long just right IMO for a wedding.

Sue and I then said our good bye’s and headed home after a long but fantastic wedding weekend singing “I Love To Boogie” all the way.

Thanks to Chris and Debbie for looking after us, Debbie for reminding me of the scooter incident, (what happens at the Billy Bash………….) and the amazing family and friends of Kirsty and Hywel for making the day so much fun but MOST of all to Hywel and Kirsty for never saying no and being so much fun, you guys make an awesome couple and I cant wait to run with you both again, although I have it on good authority Hywel mate that Kirsty is just “going to eat” from now on in 😉

Rob and Victoria get married at Cain manor

On Friday Sue and I joined Victoria and Robert for our second wedding of the weekend at the beautiful Cain Manor and Boy did we have an awesome day.  We met Victoria and Rob at a wedding we did back in 2011 for Paddy and Laura and as always we were chuffed when they contacted us to chat about their wedding, This is the second time Paddy and Laura has passed friends our way they are an awesome couple and I am pleased to say they have become friends too.

Paddy and Laura’s wedding

We started our day with Victoria getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite and spent an hour or so taking some lovely prep shots as well as Victoria stepping into her beautiful wedding dress but the highlight for me was her gorgeous Jenny Packham shoes which were adorable. We them met with Rob and the boys for a few shots before it was time for the ceremony.  Thankfully the weather was outstanding and the ceremony took place outside which is always a joy and made for some beautiful photos, The registrars were amazing and thankfully we knew them both and the whole thing was just perfect.

After the ceremony we had an hour in the beautiful grounds so after a few relaxed shots we did some lovely family groups and then took Victoria and Rob off for some lovely photos in the wild flower fields and the amazing grounds of Cain Manor.

We then did the everybody shot and the confetti before Victoria and Rob headed into the wedding breakfast which is when Sue and I said our goodbye’s and left because we were only booked today for our short package, You can check out our packages using the link below including our new “off peak” packages as well as some super special offers too.

Steve and Anna tie the knot in secret :-)

On Wednesday we joined Steve and Anna for our smallest wedding yet, it was just Steve and Anna 🙂  We met Steve at a wedding a few years back and have worked with him several times since including a rather saucy charity shoot we did for him.

Steves Charity Shoot

We met Steve and Anna at Winchester Registry office and after a quick chat with the registrars we headed into ceremony room 2 and the beautiful ceremony started and I can honestly say I have never felt more a [art of a wedding we have worked at,  Sue and I were also the witnesses so again it was quite moving to be such a big part of their day.

After the lovely ceremony we headed outside for 20 minutes to take a few photos before Steve and Anna were whisked off to the Airport and to Italy for a short break and honeymoon.

It was a beautiful morning that we will both cherish forever,

Adam and Stephanies Engagement shoot

Sue and I offer an engagement shoot free of charge to our weddings and these are normally done in the studio but if you can make midweek then sometimes we can do these at your wedding venue when we combine it with our meeting there.

Last week we met Steph and Adam at the beautiful Sway manor hotel in the new forest for their e-shoot and the weather was perfect as were the beautiful grounds of this very quaint hotel.

We are both really looking forward to the wedding in september which will be a few days after our California adventure so we will both be tanned and relaxed and ready for action 🙂

We offer a completely free Engagement shoot to anyone booking a wedding with us because we feel its a wonderful way to get to know our clients before the big day. Here are a few photos from this Brilliant Engagement shoot I hope you enjoy and love them as much as we do and look forward to your comments and seeing you again soon,
