Emma and Edward contacted me earlier in 2012 and commissioned me to photograph their winter marquee wedding down in Baughurst, Hampshire.
December is always a special month to get married in and I’ve found over the years that many clients opt for a winter marquee wedding at this time of the year.
For me, as usual, the day started with some bridal prep photography at Emma’s parents home before we headed just across the lane to St. Stephen’s Church which is a wonderful little church with lots of character and actually, in this low light of the winter, was a perfect place to get married.
Once the ceremony was completed Emma and Edward and their guests took the few short steps back across the lane to the marquee reception.
I think everyone was pleased to get into the warmth at this point as it was a bitterly cold day.
The wedding breakfast and reception was wonderful and the caterers & cooks did a remarkable job in feeding so many people on time.
Once the formalities of the meal were out the way it was time for the speeches and both Emma’s father and Edward delivered elegantly, with stories and funny anecdotes along the way.
Of course, it wasn’t until Edward’s two best men took to the mike that the real stories came out and it was lovely to see so many people enjoying the fun, laughing and generally having a great time.
This winter marquee wedding was drawing to a close for me and my final mission was to take the dance floor and capture the first dance.
If people join the dance floor once the first dance is completed then I always stay a little longer to capture “some shapes” – and this wedding was no exception….
