As a preferred wedding photographer of Rhinefield House, I was delighted to photograph Sarah and Peter’s wedding day. They found me via the preferred supplier list that Rhinefield House gives to all Bride and Groom’s who enquire there and we then organised to meet at their home for me to show them my portfolio and talk through their wedding plans and aspirations.
Providing a relaxing start to the day, the Bridal preparations were covered in an unobtrusive way to capture the nervous excitement of the bridal party at Rhinefield House and then headed to the wedding ceremony at St Nicholas Church of England church in Brockenhurst to meet Pete and his Groomsmen. During the planning and preparation of the wedding I was pre warned by the couple that I was not allowed to photograph from the front of the church. So I photographed from the back of the church, incorporating the stunning stain glass window that the church has beyond the alter. This provided a beautiful unique backdrop for the couples ceremony photographs.
I was able to capture Sarah and her dad before they entered the church as he took her hand and placed it on his arm – a truly touching moment between father and daughter. Photographing from the back of the church meant that I couldn’t achieve the Brides entrance down the aisle (one of my favourite moments on a wedding day) however I managed to capture a wonderfully affectionate smile as Pete saw his Sarah for the first time.
We stopped for some personal photographs in the New Forest and for one of the shots the wind took Sarah’s veil beautifully high into the air as she kissed Pete. Timing is everything in photography to get these special moments – right time, right place 🙂
On returning to Rhinefield House for the wedding breakfast I saw Exclusively Weddings had decorated the Grand Hall so beautifully, providing an exquisite background for the photographs I was to produce later in the day.
Cracking speeches and a pub quiz from the Best Man was one of many highlights, followed by crazy dancing well into the evening.
If you are having a Rhinefield House wedding please feel free to get in touch to check on my availability and fingers crossed I will be available for your special day.
I could go on forever about this stunning wedding but I think it’s time you saw it for yourselves – enjoy 😉
