Weddings at Rhinefield House
I have the pleasure in producing a fair amount of Rhinefield House wedding photography, I’ve photographed over 120 weddings there to date, but Celia & Graham’s wedding has to be one of the most relaxed and fun occasions I have had the pleasure to be a part of.
Celia & Graham wanted a very relaxed approach to their wedding day giving them as much time to celebrate with their closest family and friends. Their approach to photography was very much the same as they wanted a very natural feel to their photographs. I think as you’ll see below we definitely completed the brief, and then some 🙂
This wedding was seamless from beginning to end as the whole day just flowed perfectly. The weather was also remarkable throughout, with absolutely not a cloud in sight, as the couple celebrated their civil ceremony in the Grand Hall before having a religious blessing in the stunning Forest Garden.
When photographing the guests during any reception drinks I always look for two things – light and moments. The light was perfect in this setting and the moments just kept coming as the guests drank Champagne and congratulated the happy couple on becoming the new ‘Mr & Mrs’.
For the couples time alone I chose to split this session with some time in the reception drink and some during golden hour later on in the day. I chose to stay by the main pond and then a setting with the New Forest landscape as the back drop. For the Golden Hour couple session the light really dictated where I chose to use as I wanted to achieve both a silhouette and incorporate some beautiful sun flare in the couples photographs. As Wirth all my couple sessions I gave a little light direction to achieve the emotion that I wanted but the couple did all the rest.
As a documentary wedding photographer I look to tell the story of the day through the photographs allowing the couple to relive their wedding for many years to come. This is always the way I approach every wedding and I think the photographs produced from Celia & Graham’s wedding are the perfect way to relive their incredible wedding at Rhinefield House.
