New Forest Wedding

A few weeks ago, I photographed a beautiful New Forest wedding. The ceremony took place at St. Mary’s in Copythorne, Hampshire and the wedding breakfast and evening reception was held at the well-known, Mortimer Arms  which is right at the entrance to Paulton’s Park!

I really loved this wedding because of it’s simple elegance. The bride and groom wanted the whole day to be as laid back as they are. The bride, along with her bridesmaids made their own stunning bouquets with flowers from M&S and the cartoon-like drawings of the very talented groom graced the covers of their orders of service and even the top of the wedding cake.

The flower girls carried tulle pom-pom wands made by the Pom-Pom Shack, which is based in Winchester, Hampshire. The pom-poms matched their beautiful dresses just perfectly!

The bride and her mother arrived at the church in a beautiful vintage Rolls Royce, owned and operated by Abbey Cars, based in the Southampton area.

The beautiful wedding cake was made by the groom’s mother and it’s simplicity reflected the laid back personalities of the happy couple.

The bride’s dress was handmade by Barbara Webb, a very talented dressmaker in Bitterne, Hampshire. The dress was just perfect for this beautiful bride. It was elegant, soft and it photographed very well!

I always say that only a real man can carry a bouquet and look good doing it! 😉

I always like to do at least one of these poses in the car in black and white. It works well with the vintage car.

 

Mortimer Arms

This is the framed signing mat that comes will all of my packages. It’s a great way to display one of your pre-wedding portraits and it’s an alternative to a guestbook!

 

Place Cards

All of the place cards were made by the groom. I thought they were so creative and very personal too!

Whew, the food at the Mortimer’s Arms was delicious and those Yorkshire puddings are the largest I’ve ever seen!

A surpise guest during the best-man’s speech! Hysterical and of course, the groom did not get off lightly !

To wind the groom up, the guests were handed envelopes with what the groom thought were embarrassing photos – hee hee! The desired effect was achieved!

The bride and groom, meanwhile, were looking at the actual embarrassing photos! Very funny, Mr Best-man!
