Time really does fly by. Especially, it seems, when you’re a wedding photographer! I often lose track of how many years it’s been since my couples got married, so that’s why they’re now in my system calendar! Barely seems credible, but it’s been a year since Charlotte and James married at the Hotel Terravina in the New Forest.
The Hotel Terravina’s a boutique hotel, tucked away in the village of Netley Marsh. You’d never know it was there, nestling quietly in peaceful surroundings on the edge of the Forest woodland. Although I’ve been to the hotel before several times, this was the first wedding I’d shot there, and what a delightful day it was.
I met up with Charlotte and James at the hotel earlier in the year and we “clicked” immediately. They were having an intimate celebration with family and a few friends. They wanted discreet, documentary coverage that captured the fun and the emotions of the day without intruding. I knew from the outset that this was going to be a lovely wedding.
As usual, the Bridal prep was filled with laughter and just a few emotions. Might have been the influence of a few bubbles in there as well! Before we knew it, it was time for James and the guests to arrive and the excitement was building.
The ceremony was delightful – personal, relaxed and full of fun and emotion. Afterwards the wedding party moved out into the courtyard for the drinks reception, then onto the lawns for the photographs. It was a lovely day – a wonderful couple, a gorgeous venue and a real privilege to be a part of.
Happy anniversary Charlotte and James, and here’s to many more xx
