A Red and blush pink colour scheme for Melissa & Ashley’s elegant wedding at Rhinefield House
Here are a few of my favourite photographs from Melissa and Ashley’s elegant wedding at the stunning Rhinefield House. Even though there were a few scattered showers throughout the day every guest loved being a part of the couples day. We managed to get all of the photographs within the luscious grounds that this exquisite venue has to offer which I know was extremely important to the couple.
Melissa and Ashley are a really wonderful to work with and are both athletes for the Great British Athletics team. With the clear vision they had for their wedding I knew it was going to be a wonderful day to be a part of and boy was I right.
The day began at Melissa’s parents house in Poole for the bridal preparations and there was such a wonderful buzz of excitement which was the perfect way to start the days coverage.
The couples ceremony took place in the Grand Hall and the setting was perfect for such a special occasion. Elegant white lanterns decorated the aisle as Melissa walked down with her father eager to meet her husband to be.
The couple opted for a 15 minute drive through the forest alone after the ceremony whilst their guests mingled and drank Champagne. With the rain coming and going I set up a location indoors for the group photographs however just as we were about to start the rain ceased and I whisked the couple and their guests into the grounds for some photographs.
The speeches were fantastic and produced some quite spectacular moments with the guests hanging onto every word.
It was soon time for the first dance which took place in the Grand Hall and this produced some magical moments between the couple. There were spins, carries and dips as the new Mr & Mrs Bryant opened the evening celebrations in style.
As the storm set in for the evening the couple desperately wanted a rain shot and as a result the final shot was produced. A real showstopper to end their incredible collection of photographs.
