One of my fav’s set deep into the New Forest. It’s a grand manor house hotel with grounds to make every photograph from your wedding day look breathtaking. The service from the team at Rhinefield is second to none and I have no doubt that when you arrive you will be blown away! I am also fortunate enough to be the main wedding photographer for this stunning hampshire wedding venue.

A beautiful Barn wedding venue in Holybourne near Alton, Hampshire. This rustic barn wedding venue is a wonderful setting for any wedding reception and a venue that I love working at. The Barn is over 200 years old and can be decorated exactly the way you would like. There are beautiful views surrounding the venue and endless places to take photographs. One of my fav’s is the rows of trees at the entrance – just stunning.

If you are looking for something different as a wedding venue then I would highly recommend Spitbank Fort, a 5* Hampshire exclusive use wedding venue. With views of the South of England’s coastline and a beautiful Maritime museum interior you are sure to be wowed. The food is exquisite, the atmosphere is devine and if you wanted to you could even have the Spinaker Tower to light up in the evening with the colours from you wedding’s colour scheme – amazing, I know!! I know the exterior of this island fort is not amazing but please do not be fooled, the interior by makes up for it with a fire pit to roast marshmallows, a crow’s nest to view the Portsmouth coastline and a hot tub, need I say more?! I am very blessed to be a preferred photographer for this wedding venue and please head over to Emma and Martin’s wedding blog post to see some wedding photographs at Spitbank Fort – https://www.martinbell-photography.co.uk/spitbank-fort-wedding-photography-hampshire-wedding-photographer-emma-martin/
