...and it was a lovely, lively, family and friends fun-filled beautiful day - ending in an evening full of dancing and a newlywed couple :)
Last week I had the honour of spending the day taking pictures for the story of Mark & Lucy's wedding day in Hampshire. The forecast was a bit worrisome - lots of intermittent greyness and wetness interspersed with some spells of bright sunshine - but thanks to some fortunate timing and some dynamic alterations to our photography plans, we managed to stay mostly dry. The day started with both bride and groom preparing at a Hotel on the outskirts of Winchester, before moving into the city centre - to St Peter's Church - for the ceremony, given by a very cheery priest. The heavens opened soon after the service finished and so we hot-footed it north to a stunning wedding venue - The Clock Barn - for the afternoon and evening receptions. On arrival we were greeted by some lovely gaelic music by Boondock with further music in the evening by an outstanding covers band, Anthem. We managed to nip outside once or twice between rain showers for a stroll around the grounds, before getting back inside for food and drink and finishing off after the meal with dancing. Lots and lots of dancing :) (And a little bit of drinking too...) Thanks to the staff at the Clock Barn for helping make my job easier, and to Daniel from Bainis Films who was videographer, but most of all, thanks to Mark & Lucy for involving me in their big day - it was an honour, thank-you :) Below is a taster of their wonderful day.
