Hampshire Wedding, New Place, Devere Hotel, Southampton, Hampshire

Uncategorized

Christine & Dave got married and had their wedding at New Place in Hampshire. If you want a grand, Hampshire wedding, then what a beautiful, grand facade; impressive from the start. The autumnal colours were in full bloom, oranges and reds. And the weather was impressive with sun and warmth.

The bridesmaids were so helpful and pretty in their purple dresses http://www.forherandforhim.com/ and hair and make up was kept to time and so natural by Claire Nicole. http://www.clairenicole.co.uk/ … check out here amazing dressing hanging in the paneled area of New Place and the beautiful autumnal bridal flowers with berries! And the cake, was made by the groom’s brother (the leaves were so real).

For a wedding photographer in Hampshire, New Place is a dream to photograph. It has everything from colour to grandeur and space! It also has an Arden Suite at the back of the hotel, which allows larger parties. Marrying in the oak paneled, stone fireplace room, Dave & Christine giggled their way through their vows. The guests were able to drink and canape on the steps which flow down to the formal lawns behind the hotel. This autumn wedding allowed me to shoot through the most beautiful, colourful trees and for a wedding photographer, this is the best time of year.

Notice the amazing table displays from Little Lillies, http://www.little-lillies.co.uk/index.html which have a wooded/star wars theme! Incredible tree topiary designs from Little Lillies; which were painstakingly put together throughout the morning.

The video guys were young, fun and cute! from Devoted Films; http://www.devotedfilms.co.uk/ they produce unusually, natural and beautifully put together wedding films. I left the guests about to scoff chocolate strawberries and the like from The Hampshire Chocolate Fountain, http://www.hampshire-chocolate-fountains.co.uk/ Mmmmm as they were dancing the night away. Thanks for choosing me to cover your day … x

A few words from Christine!

Where did you two meet?

We actually met on match.com, I had come back from spending two years working in Australia and decided that I wanted to settle down with a nice English Boy. I didn’t have any money though as I had spend it all on travelling before coming home so my mum had to pay for my months subscription. You could say that Dave was bought for the bargain price of £29.99! Things fell into place quickly as we realised how well we got on together. A couple of years later we went to New York for a week in December 2011. I thought Dave might propose whilst we were there but there was no sign of a ring. Instead he kept me waiting for another couple of weeks when he proposed to me on Christmas Eve, hiding the engagement ring in the number 24 of my advent calendar. I was so surprised I forgot to say yes!

Did you go on a honeymoon?

We spent the week straight after the wedding at Center Parcs in Elvedon, it was great to escape for a few days! We are going to the Sandals Resort Ochi in Jamaica for 2 week late January. At Center Parcs we went to the spa, played badminton, went swimming in the Tropical Paradise Pool which includes a fun Tropical Cyclone slide and also took part in Field Archery (which I won).

What did you love about New Place?

We loved the setting, the house looked fantastic. We also liked how the hotel rooms were separate to the main manor house and the wedding reception space (Arden Suite) was set out the back so it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The grounds were great too.

Who was your favourite provider on the day?

Ali was fantastic, you kept everyone in check with your own way (being bossy… in a friendly way of course) we loved having her as our photographer. You kept us laughing and relaxed during the photos and wondered about guests unnoticed the rest of time time. The way you also made me feel beautiful and you gave me confidence while getting ready. Cant wait to see the photos they are going to be amazing.
