Vicki and Luke get married in the Tithe Barn

On Sunday we joined Vicki and Luke for our third wedding on the weekend which was at the beautiful Tithe Barn in Ditcham near Pretersfield on what was a beautiful unexpected summers day and such a treat after what had been forecast.  The Tithe Barn is a magnificent Grade II* listed building has had many uses over the years. Now restored to its original state to be used as a wonderful wedding venue. The interior is a delight! It is unusually grand with six huge stone arches, half hammer beams and a flagstone floor. The old grain bins have been opened into a fantastic balcony ideal for our Funtime foto booth Sue and I have worked at the Tithe barn in Hampshire since 2005 and its one of Hampshires top wedding venues.

We started our day with Vicki at home in Southampton for our usual hour of Bridal preparation photographs which is where Sue and I start to get creative for the day and today was no exception, we both loved capturing all of Vicki’s little wedding details that she had put so much work into as well of course as capturing the usual hair and makeup photos but before long it was time for us to head off over to Buriton and the lovely Tithe Barn to meet with Luke and the boys.

We arrived early due to the traffic gods being on our side so we setup our photo booth before Luke arrived and we got on with the boys photos, we had a great time and despite Luke being a proper “jack the lad” he was exceptionally quiet so we left him to it and to enjoy his moment whilst we waited for Vicki to arrive a beautiful vintage car, after a few shots outside with the 4 bridesmaids we headed into the barn to a very tearful Luke,  after a very emotional service we headed out into the sunshine for some relaxed photos and a few family groups and then we went for a walk with Vicki and Luke for the most amazing 30 minutes of portraits in and around the barns including the beautiful meadows filled with amazing yellow flowering crops which are simply beautiful. Although most things are late growing this year because of the weather the north field at the barn was beautiful, one of the many bonuses of Sue and my experience is that we know most venues very well and that we know where to look for not only the “light” but also locations which we have found over many years of shooting, often they are only moments away but unless you know they would never be seen.

After more drinkies and relaxing in the gardens we then all went in for dinner and speeches which were fun, Luke and his brother Eddie both said great speeches and I am pleased to say Luke was back on top form and had the room in stitches more than once,  The Tithe barn is the most amazing space and it looks simply stunning when it is all setup and Sue and I had the birds eye view because we then started up our funtime wedding foto booth to take advantage of the hour before the evening started and it was a whole lot of fun as you will see from the links below, again we had such a laugh, first with Vicki and Luke and then everybody visited the booth and as you will see the photos are simply amazing and a perfect memento from a perfect evening.

The first dance followed which was sung by a guest which made it so special and the photos are amazing as you will see, again the barn offers the most amazing backdrop if you know how to use it and of course have the right equipment too and then a few more dances before Sue and I packed up and headed home exhausted but buzzing from what was our third fantastic wedding this bank holiday.

Another TOP wedding with another amazing couple. Today we had lovely weather, lovely company and a fab fun couple thanks to you all for giving us a fun wedding and  I hope you love the photos below as well as the funtime fotos from our  wedding booth photo website HERE

Weddings of 2011 with Jules and Sue

Its come to that time of year when we reflect on our years weddings and look forward to another amazing year of weddings in 2012,  this year we photographed 31 weddings which was 1 over our target of 30,  in previous years we have had a target of 40 but this year we decided to cut it down to 30 weddings to give us a little more time together with the family which is so important, we only went over by 1 to accommodate one of our lovely bridesmaids from a previous wedding.

We love our weddings and hope that shown in our photos, we would love you to leave us a message at the end of this blog post to let us know your favourite photo, I am sure the couples will appreciate that as will Sue and I, during 2012 we will be running a monthly ‘COMMENT CONTEST” and the best comment every month will receive a prize so get commenting folks 🙂

These photos are in no particular order, This first couple are the lovely Joe and Abbie who got married at Minley Manor on an amazing day, we had a lot of fun and have really enjoyed getting to know them, as with all our Military weddings it was a great day, highlighted by the most amazing firework display in the evening and the fact that it was our longest wedding ever.

This next photo was taken at Lainston House in Winchester which is very local to us, Adam and Mandy got married on our wedding anniversary 3rd September and as a treat they gave us dinner in a very romantic room 🙂 unfortunatly we had the grumpy bloody videographer there too hahaha.  We had a great day with lots of sunshine tho and it was a fab way to celebrate our anniversary.

This wedding with Jeremy and Sarah was at the amazing Elvetham in Hartley Whitney,  it was a last minute booking for us but none the less amazing, great location with real fun people and wonderful weather and lots and lots of champagne.

Caroline and Will got married on there own trout fishery in the Meon’s  we met them a few years earlier when they won a voucher and we took photos of them and there dog Basil, the wedding day was amazing as was the weather, great ride back to the fishery for all the bridesmaids in Will’s tractor, so much fun its hard to fit it all into a couple of lines.

This next couple are David and Sarah who got married at Sarah’s parents house in Milton Keynes, David is a pilot and they have moved to Dubai for his work, I am sure they are in for a wonderful life together and we would like to wish them the best for there very exciting future over there.

Our next couple is Major Simon and Ebba 🙂  These 2 live all over the world  and found us online, we got to know Ebba via email and built up a lovely friendship, it was like photographing an old friends wedding at the amazing Brompton Barracks in Kent again the day flowed like a dream.

This next lovely couple are Adrian and Sarah, they got married at Burcombe manor on what can only be described as a pink wedding day 🙂  Sarah loves pink and I must say it was done very well indeed, another amazing couple, we stopped in a field on route to get this photo that Sue took before heading off to Burcombe, we had lots of rain but that never stopped the fun.

Tom and Laura 🙂  wow what a day, they got married in Salisbury and there reception was at our local and very popular Rhinefield House in the new forest which was a bit of a trek but well worth it,  we had a wonderful day and so much fun with these 2 and there families.

This next wedding was at Northbrook Park in Farnham which again has become very popular with us, Andy and Issy’s wedding was a lovely day, filled with amazing details and great people, our great friend Chef Gary cooked there wedding food and you all know how I feel about his cooking.

Jan and Angela got married at the beautiful Parley Manor on a lovely wednesday, such a lovely day and a fun couple who really knew what they wanted, lots of amazing details and the amazing singing waiters too. We just delivered there album in fact last week and it was our largest yet 50 amazing pages 🙂

Jodie and Alex were married in Gaynes park in Essex, if you look at there blog post here I think you will agree that its the most amazing wedidng venue.

Patrick and Laura were married at the Barn at Bentley which is a lovely venue, great couple and wonderful guests made this a very memorable wedding for us, we always enjoy barn weddings and they dont come much better than this one.

Helen and Keith were married at Audleys Wood in basingstoke on a chilly but sunny day in November, beautiful wedding and couple, Keith is a submariner so we had a lot of fun including a sword fight 🙂 now you don’t get one of those at every wedding.  use the search button below to find there blog post.

This next wedding was actually our last of 2011 with peter and Anabell and it was at the Clock Barn which again is a barn venue,  Lovely people made this day, I am not a huge fan of the staff at the Clock barn but that does not stop us getting amazing breathtaking photos, its all about the couple and there guests.

Richard and Adele were married at the Bartley lodge hotel in the new forest and had the most amazing wedding, we really enjoyed getting to know these 2 and I think it shows in there photos,  Such a lovely close family and I am very pleased to say that we keep in touch often through Facebook as we do with lots of our couples.

Ben and Jo were married at the delighful Careys Manor which is another favourite new forest venue for us,  We took Matt, another photographer along with us who also got some great images, we occasionally do this if we have larger weddings or in this case time restraints,  another lovely wedding and worth seaching here for.

Ben and Perry were married at there local church in Landford and then the reception back at Bens parents house which is a stud at landlord, amazing weather and day with lots of great music.

Medhi and Carol got married at al Elmers Court in the new forest,  the day will forever stick in my mind, Medhi was from France and Carol from Zimbadwe so we had lots of language issues to deal with but a whole lot of fun as well.

Simon and Alia had a wonderful wedding up at Northbrook Park in Farnham and it was an amazing day filled with all sorts,  we had 3 ceremonies lots of music and dancing and a whole lot of amazing people, such a great day finishing with a traditional Jewish chair dance, so much fun.

Stuart and Sarah’s day was a wonderful day, set at Rhinefield House in the new forest and it was a lovely day, we had the most amazing time with some great portraits and a whole lot of fun.

Dan and Laura will always hold a special place in my Heart,  we knew Laura before she met Dan so we were so excited when they announced there engagement, of course we were so happy to shoot there wedding which tok place at the ford social club.

This next wedding was another Careys Manor wedding, David and Claire are from Dubai  so all arrangements were made via email and although it was a shorter wedding for us we had a great day and it turned out to be a highlight wedding for us, such an amazing couple with so much love to share.

This next wedding was at the Di Vin in Winchester with Kevin and Ellen back in February, it was a great day with lots of our clients there including Matt and KJ from 2006 so it was like a bog family wedding for us.  lots of fun and some amazing donuts !  need I say more 🙂

James and Kelly were married at Richmond Park in London in Pembrooke lodge and it was a wonderful day, we had a surprise when Peter Crouch walked by so with James being such a footie fan I asked Peter if he would mind a photo, of course he was happy to, in fact it was the day that Peter announced his engagement, perfect timing or what !

Clint and Charlotte  live in Australia but we met them a few years ago when Charlotte was a bridesmaid at another wedding,  we kept in touch via Facebook and email and when they decided to get married we were there 🙂  they got married at East Horton  golf club which Charlottes family own, another great wedding.

Peter and Karen live in Canada and got married at Cain Manor in Surrey on the most amazing Autumnal day, it was very cold but the light was amazing as you can see with Sue’s shot below.  another fun filled cain manor wedding.

Kim and Stewart were married at Pitt hall Barn,  an odd venue actually on a working farm and in my opinion better suited to a much smaller wedding but none the less it was a nice day, the ceremony took place in a church in Whitchurch and then its a fair drive to pitt barn but a lovely couple and great wedding guests.

Rich and Nikki got married at the lovely Tythe Barn in Petersfied,  it was a great wedding, lots of fun and unexpected sunshine 🙂  Sue and I had worked with Nikki who was a model lots of times so this truly was a very special day for us.

Steve and Natalie got married at Rivervale Barn in Yately which is a sensational barn and a lovely place to get married, it makes for a perfect reception venue too, lovely grounds and amazing views. This was a great wedding for us with lots of friends and one that we will never forget.

Andy and Katy found us online for their Avington Park wedding, it was a lovely day filled with sunshine and amazing weather, we had lots of fun first at St Peters church in Winchester and then Avington.

Peter and Anna met us at 2 friends weddings over the past few years so it was a sure bet that we would join then at theirs 🙂  we had the most amazing day at the church and then Gatestreet Barn where the sun shone continually.  Lovely people and great day.

Rich and Nikki get married @ the Tythe Barn

On Thursday we joined Rich and Nikki for their wedding at the Tythe barn in Ditcham Nr Petersfield,  We have worked with Nikki many times before because she used to model for us so we were both extra excited about this wedding, well we started our day with Nikki and the girls at her flat in Whitchurch for a couple of hours prep including lots of detail shots of shoes and rings “of course” and some fun with the girls. We then headed off for the 1 hour trip to the beautiful Tythe Barn, the driving was awful, it was absolutly lashing down with rain and we thought that was it for the day but fortiunatly we spent the day with a mixture of rain, wind and intense sunshine so all in all much better than anticipated.

We did a few shots with the boys which was fun and once the rain stopped did them again 🙂  Are you getting a feel for the day yet ?  hehehe !!!   Nikki arrived looking amazing and the beautiful ceremony begun, we were then led into the gardens for a few photos and bubbles, well lots of Corona beer for the lads and bubbles for the ladies 🙂  although we struggled with the weather, the grass was too wet for photos and we had to avoid puddles on the path, I am pleased to say that we managed the whole drinks reception outside including some great portraits by the pond and of course on the tractor, did I mention Rich and Nikki were a lot of fun 🙂

We were then called into dinner, and O boy the food was amazing, all served up  by Tim from  Caper and Berry catering who were amazing on all counts, the food was delicious and the service was 5*  and we hope to see them again soon.

After the speeches and of course dinner we had a couple of hours just chilling in the barn before the music started and the dancing, we also managed to catch the lads and a few ladies outside for cigars which was a lot of fun !

All in all we had an amazing day and that includes the unsettled weather which was much better that forcast.

Thanks Nikki and Rich for a fab day and of course for looking after us, thanks everyone else for being so much fun, it really was a joy to be part of your day.
