Hampshire wedding photographer – the wedding of Niki and Duncan in Brockenhurst .. the heart of the New Forest
I was delighted to be asked to photograph Nikki and Duncan’s wedding in the New Forest, especially as I’d photographed her Sister’s wedding at the same church last year. We’d met up a couple of times before the wedding, and the last occasion was to shoot their engagement photographs at Hordle in Hampshire …. the spot where Duncan proposed (check here for the Blog post)!
For this particular shoot I was accompanied by the lovely Anna – a professional fashion photographer who’s looking to move into wedding and wanted the experience of second shooting with me. It’s nice to have company on a shoot, although we were both concentrating on capturing the day that we didn’t really have the chance to chat much! 🙂
We started at Niki’s family home in Lymington, and having shot one daughter’s wedding already I knew what a lovely family they were, and we were welcomed like old friends, which is really nice. Anna and I split up to shoot different elements of the bridal preparations and before we knew it we off to St. Nicholas Church in Brockenhurst to shoot the arrival of the guests and “the guys”! Friends and family had come from all over the country, and we were blessed with a lovely day and were treated to a wide variety of hats from the ladies! After the ceremony we moved onto the reception in a marquee in the lovely surroundings of Setley Ridge Vineyard – yes, a vineyard in the middle of the New Forest, and a what a wonderful wedding venue it is. I have to admit it was quite late before I eventually managed to drag myself away from the celebrations (I let Anna leave earlier as she was driving back up to London!), but I know that everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves – we certainly did, and thank you both for allowing us to be a part of your very special day.
Here’s a taster of some images from the day …
