Aaah first wedding of spring 2016. Waking up to blue skies and sunshine was just the start of a very lovely day featuring Ollie & Beatrice who tied the knot in Hampshire.
Bea & Ollie getting ready was made more fun than usual by the fact that they got ready in the same house. Calls of “groom coming down the hall!” were a regular occurance but it went super well and it was great to be able to shoot both of them getting ready at the same time.
The day was filled with luscious South African influence. Everywhere one turned you would find the South African national flower, the protea, making a beautiful appearance. It’s a unique flower which I’ve never seen before – a first!
The ceremony was at at St. Mary’s Church in Buriton and the skies stayed happy and blue for their getaway in a red 1965 Alvis convertible. How gorgeous are they?!
The Tithe Barn in Hampshire is an utterly stunning venue which, now that I’ve shot in so many barns in the UK, I can say is definitely one of the best we’ve experienced. It’s bright and pristine and has such a calming ambience. It’s big but not too big. Cozy, but not small.
One of the most precious points in the wedding day as far as photography goes is the opportunity to get away for a few moments of peace when we steal the couple away. Usually, it’s the first time they’ve been alone all day and it’s always a pleasure to be able to facilitate that and create some beautiful images while we’re at it.
