Saturday was a wonderful day for this photographer in Hampshire for the wedding of Sally and Mark. The day started at Trevor Mitchell International in North Baddesley for hair where I met up again with Sally, her mum and three lovely bridesmaids, after which we went to the Potters Heron in Ampfield where Sally was getting ready. Sally had her make-up done by Helen Spenser, an exceptional make-up artist who I frequently work with and whilst there I got some images of the dress and shoes as well.
Then it was onto the St John the Baptist church also in North Baddesley, an amazing little church which somehow managed to cram 90 guests, myself and the vicar in for a very moving and enjoyable service. The guys arrived with Mark in a Porsche and cars held a theme through the day with Sally arriving in a 1952 Armstrong Siddeley Whitely Saloon driven expertly by Nigel Eversfield Morgan.
After the service it was onto St Jermyn’s House at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens for the reception and some formal photographs before Sally, Mark and I took a quiet walk to get some more relaxed images. After a (very tasty!) barbeque three lovely speeches ensured and Mark was treated fairly in a great speech by best-man Brian before they stepped onto the dance floor for their first dance.
Here are a few images from the day. Sally and Mark have the access code and details for the online gallery, which they will send out on their return from their honeymoon and their images are planned to be up by the 26th September. I hope these keep any family and guests going until then !
Finally Sally and Mark had a pre-wedding shoot at the Hillier Gardens, here in Hampshire, and as part of their wedding photography had a framed print included. They brought this to the wedding, and displayed it at the entrance to the marquee next to the box for cards, and also just behind the custom guest book I created for them from the images taken at the pre-wedding shoot. I thought this was a great idea – and good use of the print, and of course I was touched they were so pleased with it that they wanted to show it off to everyone as well !
