Back on a greyish day in May, we were spending the day there with Stacey & Pete for their civil wedding. Stacey was upstairs in full on prep mode, so that was first stop.
Then it was time to make sure the fellas were getting their look together!
I love this caught shot of Stacey's flower girl and page boy having a chuckle just before we got the 'proper' photograph.
Soon enough we got to see Stacey and her dad making their way down the fantastic feature staircase (which we'll return to later) for the ceremony itself.
During the ceremony we were snuggled in at the back of the room with a great view of the proceedings, this enabled us to get some lovely shots from a discreet distance without being intrusive - photographers take note - registrars and vicars love us for this!
After the ceremony it was group photographs time - Ringwood Hall has a great balcony to get a view of the whole wedding party with the lovely countryside in the distance. On the way, we caught Stacey's young bridesmaid at full speed.
Now THIS is what you call a back garden...
Stacey and Pete were fantastic subjects, and despite the increasingly damp weather , and my worrying about dragging them all around the countryside, they were up for every shot we dreamed up!
We did retire inside for a shot with that wonderful staircase, but not for long - they soon had me out and about making the most of their fab location!
If ever there was a shot to liven up a greyish day with a poke of colour, it surely has to be the one below...
Congratulations Stacey & Pete!
