Yesterday was the wedding of Sarah and Tom at the Manor Barn in Buriton.
Another wonderfully sunny, bright and warm day perfect for a wedding. I met up with Sarah, her mum, and bridesmaids at the Trooper Inn at Froxfield near Petersfield where Sarah was getting ready and got some details of her dress, jewellery, perfume, shoes and tiara as well as the preparations, hair and make-up. It was also an excellent opportunity to get to meet Susan, Sarah and Eliza and to get to know them a little.
On arrival at the barn I quickly captured the guys, and the guests arriving before Sarah pulled up in a Morgan driven by her father from which she headed off to see the registrars before processing across the courtyard to the barn and then down the aisle towards Tom who was patiently waiting. The ceremony was lovely and they were soon married and out into the sunshine again for drinks and canapes.
With a group shot and some formal photographs out of the way everyone mingled in the courtyard before being called in for speeches, followed by a very tasty hog roast cooked by the caterers – The Barbeque and Banqueting Chef.
I managed then to get a few more minutes with Sarah and Tom in the softer evening light, and wider expanses of shade around the side of the manor house on the impressive lawn and was able to use the dovecote as a feature in some of the images.
Finally the Magic Tones struck up and Sarah and Tom had their first dance and then danced the night away with their guests as I said my goodbyes.
Their gallery can be accessed from Sarah and Tom’s dedicated website page on our site, the password was either on one of the cards available at the wedding breakfast or directly from Sarah and Tom.
Here are some of my early favourites from the day.
