Rhinefield House Wedding & the Perfect Shade of Blue


Rhinefield House Hotel in the New Forest, Hampshire is always a perfect venue but for Duncan and Laila's wedding it was even more perfect...because of a shade of blue.


Not the shade of blue in the sky...which was totally cloudless...and which was indeed, in its own way, perfect....


Allowing us to get some stunning blue sky portraits around the grounds...


...including this lovely shot of the new gazebo finished only weeks prior to their wedding.


Laila and Duncan's colours were burnt orange...and...


...blue...the exact blue of the Rhinefield ornamental gates...so this is why Rhinefield was even more perfect their wedding.


Laila's Bridal Prep was in the gorgeous Rhinefield Bridal suite...


...and the Ceremony was in the stunning Great Hall.


Then it was a champagne toast for the bride and groom...

 

...and a few quiet moments alone before joining their guests in the gardens...


...for portraits and formal group shots.


It was delightful to see just how many times they'd sneaked a kiss.


Then it was off for a pleasant walk in the sun around the pond...


...and guess what...another sneak kiss!


The speeches were great fun and this was just one of many instances that Duncan was aghast at what he heard...and Laila didn't seem surprised at all.


After the speeches and after dark Duncan and Laila went back out to the pond...


..where they launched paper boats of burnt orange and blue (of course) in memory of both his Mum and her Mum.


Then it was time for the First Dance...and yes, there was more kissing.
