The first of two weddings in the New Forest I am to shoot this summer and the couple is Amanda and Simon or Mr & Mrs G as they are now called. I met Amanda for the first time on the morning of the wedding at her house in Hampshire with her 3 bridesmaids and her wonderful mum and dad. During the preparations Amanda's dad cracked open the champagne and the cork went flying and the laughter didn't end there.
It was a lovely wedding ceremony at the Rhinefield House Hotel in Brockenhurst and it was a beautifully hot day. Simon and his best man looked immaculate in their tails and the bridesmaids were dressed in classic red dresses which made for some great colourful images. There was a great moment whilst we were shooting the bridal party when a Carlsberg truck rocked up and the boys suddenly felt thirsty. If Carlsberg did weddings......
The whole party made this photographer surfer dude from Cornwall very welcome and a great day was had by all, me included. During the early evening I was invited to have a drink with the groom and we celebrated by lighting a cigar with his best men and ushers. It was a privilege to be a part of the celebration and you are welcome to drop by on me and my wife in Bude, Cornwall. I wish you both all the best in your new lives together.
