Helen and Tony held their wedding reception at the impressive Rhinefield House in the heart of the New Forest. With it’s striking gothic and tudor architecture and beautiful gardens, including an enormous ornamental pond, it makes a perfect setting for a wedding.

Helen and Tony were keen to make the most of those features and get some images of the just the two of them together in addition to the documentary coverage, and I was very happy to oblige.

A few of those images are included below, but the story telling starts with the preparations at Helen’s parents house in Ringwood before moving on to a traditional ceremony at St Mary and All Saints Church in nearby Ellingham. The church sits right next door to a primary school and as the wedding was on a Friday Helen was welcomed by an enthusiastic crowd of waving¬† children. A heart warming touch probably enjoyed by many brides at that church before and since.

Rhinefield House is a venue I always enjoy shooting at so if you’re planning a wedding there and looking for a photographer to unobtrusively and creatively capture the day for you please do get in touch. I’d love to speak to you.
