Warbrook House Wedding, Holly and Steve, Eversley, Hampshire

The Forbury Hotel Wedding Photography, Reading, Berkshire

The problem I had with Holly and Steve at the pre-wedding shoot is that I couldn't stop them smiling and laughing, so I knew that thier wedding at Warbrook House in Eversley, Hampshire was going to be great fun and I was right. By mid afternoon even my cheeks were aching from smiling too much! I hope you get a sense of this from the photographs. Please take a few minutes to browse through Holly and Steve's Warbrook House wedding photography:

The Elvetham Hotel, Ele & Damien's Wedding Photography, Hartley Wintney, Hampshire

The Elvetham Hotel wedding photography, Hampshire

I love winter weddings, I love The Elvetham hotel and Ele & Damien are a fabulous couple who had loads of good stuff planned.  So it's fair to say that I was really excited about shooting their wedding day!

I wasn't disappointed, it was a brilliant day, although it just seemed to go so fast. I couldn't quite believe it when the fireworks started and I realized it was 10:00.

 

Please take a minute to have a look at a few of the images from Ele & Damien's Elevetham Hotel wedding day:

Hampshire Family Photography, Cath, Frazer & Family, Mortimer

Hampshire Family Photography, Mortimer

I love doing lifestyle family shoots  and photographing Cath, Frazer and their fabulous kids reminded me why. Whilst they're playing it really lets their personalities shine through. There are no forced smiles here, well okay, maybe a couple:)  and I got the impression the whole family enjoyed running around nearly as much as I did (Cath?). 

Here's a selection of images from our Hampshire lifestyle family photography shoot.

The Elvetham Hotel, Ele & Damien's pre wedding photography, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, The Elvetham Hotel Wedding

It was good to be back taking photos at the beautiful Elvetham Hotel near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire. We had a great afternoon shooting Damien & Ele's pre wedding photographs in advance of their wedding at the Elvetham in November. We haven't gone through all of the wedding details yet but form what they've told me it sounds like it's going to be a famtastic day!

Here's a few images from Ele & Damien's pre -wedding photography at The Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn WeddingRivervale Barn Wedding, Victoria & David, Yateley, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn Wedding

Rivervale Barn always looks fabulous but Victoria and David really pulled out all the stops with their children’s book and teal themed wedding day. It never ceases to amaze me how creative couples (and of course their families ) are! For example all that bunting was handmade, as were the rings, the cake, the signing board and look at all the book page details!
Rivervale and probably the whole of Yateley certainly knew when David arrived. He led a convoy of sportscars in his TVR. Wow, the noise was just immense!

Congratulations and thank you for a brilliant day!

Here’s a selection of images from their Rivervale barn wedding day:

Wasing Park Wedding, Laura & Robbie, Aldermaston, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Wasing Park Wedding

I had the great pleasure of photographing Laura & Robbie's wonderful wedding day. The ceremony was at my local church, St James' in Bramley, before the reception at Wasing Park in Aldermaston.

I ws lucky enough to photograph Laura's sister's wedding, Hannah,  a few years ago so it was great to catch up with the families again.

Wasing looked lovely in the sunshine especially with all the home made bunting (100 meters!) and the beautiful country style flowers from Lavender Hill.

Here's a few images from the day:

Victoria and David booked me over two years ago so it was great to meet up again for their pre wedding shoot at Morgaston Woods near Bramley in Hampshire.

Wasing Park Wedding Photography, Laura & Robbie, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Wasing Park wedding

I met Laura and Robbie a couple of years ago when I photographed her sister Hannah's wedding at Rivervale Barn. Photographing weddings is a fabulous thing to do anyway but it's always that bit extra special when you already know at least half of the family. They're getting married at Wasing Park in Aldermaston which happens to be one of my favourite local wedding venues... So all in all I'm really excited about the wedding!

We did a pre wedding shoot in advance of the wedding at Morgaston woods, not too far from Wasing Park hoping to capture some of the Autumnal colours, here are few images from our mornings walk:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Claire & David, Highfield Park, Hook

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Highfield Park Wedding

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Claire and David's fabulous Highfield Park Wedding. It was one of those days where nobody was quite sure about what the weather was going to do so the decision whether to have the ceremony out in the Gazebo or within the hotel was left as late as possible. The decision was finally made and fortuneantely, it proved to be the right one as the weather was just perfect!

Here's a few images form their fabulous day:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Emma & Mark, Warbrook House, Eversley

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Warbrook House

Emma & Mark were married at St Giles in Reading before a wonderful wedding reception at the beautiful Warbrook House near Eversley in Hampshire. I met Emma while she was getting ready at Warbrook in the morning. Many of their guests were staying there so Emma & Mark had organised a vintage bus from Ages Past to take the guest to the church in Reading. We were hoping to do a few a group shots at  St Giles but the torrential rain made us change our minds pretty quick and head straight back to Warbrook. Not before getting a few great shots with the umbrellas!

Here are a few images from Emma & Mark's wonderful Warbrook House wedding:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Hannah & Aaron, Rivervale Barn, Yateley

Hampshire wedding photography, Rivervale Barn

Hannah & Aaron were married at the wonderful Rivervale Barn in Yateley in Hampshire. Always a great wedding venue to shoot at but at this time of year Rivervale barn is exceptional. There is so much colour in the gardens it's just beautiful. Flowers played a big part in Hannah and Aaron's day, Hannah's close friend Gregor is a florist and he incorporated flowers from family gardens to give that extra personal touch.

Take a look at the cakes too, instead of a single wedding cake, guests made and contributed about a dozen different cakes, what a fantastic idea!

Here's a few images from what was a fantastic day, thank you:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Hannah & Aaron, Morgaston Woods, Basingstoke

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Rivervale Barn

Hannah and Aaron chose Morgaston woods for their pre wedding shoot but are getting married in a few weeks time at Rivervale Barn in Yateley, Hampshire. Hannah was a bridesmaid at Lucy and Dan's wedding which I photographed almost exactly 3 years ago at Nortbrook Park so it's a real honour to have the opportunity to photograph her wedding too!

It was a real pleasure meeting up at Morgaston, the weather, for once, was gorgeous and it finally felt like spring in Hampshire!

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Henri & Matt's Wedding. The Elvetham, Hartley Wintney

Hampshire Wededing Photography, The Elvetham Hotel

Henri & Matt were married at the Elvetham Hotel near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire. The weather was absolutely freezing, but I don't think I've been to a wedding with more warmth and laughter, particularly from the bride & groom! I'm sure you'll see that, and maybe a few tears in the photographs below. Thanks for a fantastic day!

The Elvetham Hotel Wedding

Henri & Matt are getting married in March at the Elevetham Hotel and chose to do their pre wedding shoot here too. the Elvetham is a fabulous wedding venue and I'm excited about the wedding already!

I'm sure he won't mind me saying but Matt was, initially, a little uncomfortable about having his picture taken. He soon relaxed though! Here's a selection of shots from our morning at the Elvetham:
