with Fleur De Lis and gowns from Brides of Winchester

I still have lots of real weddings lines up to show you all from last year, but I thought I’d sneak this one in quickly as it shows the new home of Winchester Registry Office – The Basing Room.  Doesn’t it just look amazing?  I wouldn’t mind having a registry office wedding here at all!  These photos were taken at the meet up I attend with other Hampshire wedding photographers where we practice new skills, try out various equipment and generally learn and have a laugh.  As usual I shot on both film and digital and we practised with various lighting situations – using off camera flash, natural light, and continuous lighting.  Esme was our very patient model for the day, Brides of Winchester supplied us with the amazing Suzanne Neville Grovesnor gown, and a SoSassi gown by Sassi Halford.  Fleur De Lis came along as well and supplied a stunning floral arrangement and beautiful bouquet.  Thanks to Stephen Duncan for arranging us to have access to the Basing Room and The Great Hall of Winchester!

If you’re having your wedding at The Basing Room Winchester, or indeed having your reception at The Great Hall, do give me a shout if you are still looking for a photographer!  I still have some spaces left for 2015, but am now booking for 2016 and 2017.

Maternity Photography at Southdowns Manor

 

It’s funny how things turn out.  I haven’t shot a baby bump in an age, then this month I will be having a run of maternity shoots in Hampshire. The other week, I shot a beautiful bride who is expecting her first child (she was radiant and blooming!), next week I’ll be photographing another baby bump and baby shower, and I also had the pleasure of photographing Jana and Charlie not so long ago at Southdowns Manor.  They were very kind enough to model for a group of local photographers, and I decided to shoot them on film as we approached the golden hour.  The following photos were taken on a canon eos 3 camera and with kodak portra 400.   Film scanned and developed by UK Film Lab.  This post is also part of my Film blog circle group so if you’d like to see more film photos from around the world, do please take a look at Erica’s blog post here and then follow the links around until you get back here!  Happy viewing.

“Someone told me there’s a girl out there,

with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.”

I’m very excited to show you the results of a seventies wedding beach inspiration shoot which was put together in the shortest of time but still came together in the most serendipitous way.   Betty the VW Bug is actually from the seventies!  And of course the dresses are seventies inspired.  Thanks to Karen from Vinnies Vintage Vehicles, Lisa at Lisa Sheridan Frocks, and Kenzie and Vicky for modelling on that bright but cold march day at Eastney Beach in Portsmouth.   Doesn’t it just remind you of relaxed California beach weddings?!  And yes, I may have been playing a bit of Led Zeppelin to get into the groove whilst editing.  Bring on the summer with beach weddings, relaxed bohemian weddings, blue skies and ice cream shades!

As I get ready for my first wedding of 2015 at the weekend, I thought I would share another beautiful West Sussex Tipi farm wedding which I second shot last year!  After a beautiful church ceremony in St Mary’s Church in Chidham, West Sussex, Jessie and Harry went off in Jessie’s vintage beetle, and their friends and family followed on via a range of transport which included a tractor ride, golf buggy, and bikes!  Their celebrations took place on a family friend’s farm where a tipi and barn provided shelter from the glorious summer sunshine and the West Sussex countryside provided the backdrop.   What a fantastic day, and massive thanks to the lovely Gemma of Cotton Candy Weddings for having me along to second shoot.  Here are just some of the shots I took, but for more, please take a look at Cotton Candy’s blog post on this same wedding.
