Marie and Mark are two wonderful people who are part of two lovely families. They have two beautiful young girls to complete their family who are too adorable for words. Their eldest daughter is a very similar age to my daughter, Hetty, and as you will see below they really stole the show.
The couple opted for a Potters Heron wedding because they loved the venue at this time of year and felt it was the perfect setting to celebrate their special day. I couldn’t agree more and coupled with their church – St Peters C of E Church in Bishops Waltham – it proved to be a day full of happiness.
After having photographed Sophie and Adam’s Rhinefield House winter wedding the day before I was in full swing very quickly as I arrived to document the Bridal prep in Marie’s parents home. Looking for some different angles for the photographs I came across some tinsel which presented an array of colours around the preparing Bride. A really stunning set of photographs. Before long it was time to head over to the church for the Groomsmen photographs and arrival of the guests.
St Peters Church, a beautiful C of E church in the middle of Bishops Waltham, is a lovely place for a church wedding in Hampshire and with Christmas trees decorating the aisles it was the perfect setting for Marie and Mark to tie the knot. The ceremony itself flew by and highlighted with some wonderful moments with their eldest daughter it produced some wonderful documentary photographs to remember their ceremony by. The church had a very special meaning to the couple and their families as it is the church that both Marie’s parents and Grandparents attend on a regular basis. For this reason I recommended having their group photographs directly after the ceremony in front of the entrance to the church. Whilst seeing some big clouds looming overhead we quickly photographed the groups they had requested and then swiftly moved on to Potters Heron.
The forecast for the day was to be intermittent showers and a heavy bought of rain at some point in the afternoon. Luckily that downpour happened as we got in our cars to travel to Potters Heron after the ceremony and stopped as the cars pulled into the venue. As Marie and Mark stepped out of their vintage Rolls Royce their was a stunning scene as the sun was setting directly behind them.
The Potters Heron is an intimate country style venue with a contemporary twist. At this time of year it had a particularly cosy feel and I could see why Marie and Mark had chosen it as their wedding venue. Throughout the reception drinks I captured some lovely moments of the couple with their guests and apart from a 10 minute window where we caught sunset in the grounds they enjoyed every minute mingling with their guests.
Marie and Mark’s Potters Heron wedding was a great day to celebrate with two people so clearly in awe of each other. Marie and Mark, I cannot thank you both enough for allowing me the privilege to play such an important role in documenting the day as you would want to see it and I wish you both happiness in your future together.
