Venue: Marwell Hotel, Winchester
Emma and I were at Marwell Hotel near Winchester for Chris and Lizzie’s wedding which was literally opposite Marwell Zoo! I first met them at the Marwell wedding fair a year ago when they were looking for a photographer. After chatting at my photography stand – that evening they emailed me wanting to meet again and see more of my work……the rest they say..is ‘history!’
When we arrived we headed straight to Lizzie’s room which was packed with her Bridesmaids, the mums and her closest friends – it was buzzing! We captured shots of Lizzie’s dress, shoes and Dr Martins!, perfume, flowers and of course her jewellery. We’ve found it is the little details on the day that when couples look back at their images, they just love.
Chris was also at the venue getting ready so we spent some time with him and his Bestman and Ushers before heading back to capture Lizzie putting on her dress. She looked stunning and her Bridesmaids did a super job of making it look amazing.
Once the ceremony began it was filled with laughter, Aliens! and tears….happy ones of course 🙂 The reading Lizzie’s mum gave was a bedtime story she used to read her during her childhood – what a lovely personal touch! After the ceremony the newly married couple had some time with their guests (great time for us to capture candid shots) before we captured a handful of family shots, followed by their couple shots around the grounds.
Soon after everyone went in for the wedding breakfast followed by the speeches and a game of ‘Mr and Mrs!’. Lizzie threw her bouquet and then we had their first dance (cute!) After an hour we left the wedding party to enjoy the rest of their evening.
Thank you for a great time – below is a selection of images.
Love, Lauren and Emma x
