On Thursday we joined Paul and Laura for their wedding at the newly refurbished Burley Manor Hotel in Burley (obviously haha) in the New Forest. I know this area very well because its on one of my cycling routes so was quite excited about our first wedding there and more so once we met Laura and Paul because they certainly had an amazing eye for detail and much like the sunshine it shone on the wedding day.
We started our day with Laura at Burley Manor Hotel ion the bridal suite for some lovely preparations and details. We spent an hour or so working alongside our friend and Videographer Neil capturing the morning as it unfolded which is always a great way to start our wedding days.
We then joined Paul in the bar along with a few early guests and eventually the best man for some pre wedding lads photos around the beautiful grounds which included today a herd of deer in the field next door which was the perfect backdrop.
We were then whisked into the ceremony (literally whisked, the manager had a bug in his arse and wanted to rush rush rush Laura which was a great shame) but I managed to slow things down a little for her and grab the important photos that she had dreamed of which IMO are much more important than getting married “5 minutes early” as it happens the registrars were late talking to Laura so all good haha.
After the brief but beautiful service we headed outside onto the patio’s where we pretty much did all the photos. I would have preferred the grass but we had horrendous rain all day Wednesday so the grass was very soggy and the patio was safe 🙂
After family groups and a few relaxed photos we did some nice portraits and headed into a beautiful barn for the wedding breakfast room filled with the most amazing details including just about the best seating plan I have ever seen, awesome. The meal was absolutely gorgeous and the guests very happy so the speeches were next and a real fun thing to photograph.
After the speeches there was some downtime before we headed back to the barn for the cake cutting and evening dancing with the most amazing band who I will post details of later.
All in all the most perfect wedding day in glorious sunshine.
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,
