Highlights of our 2013 Weddings


2013 was a fantastic year for us and in putting together some highlights we hardly know where to begin. But the first notable thing was the weather, 2013 was a spectacularly good Summer.


We didn't just have amazing weather we had romance...


...and intimate moments.


We had grooms in fast cars, this groom got to drive his friend's Mercedes SLS...


...and this groom got a Ferrari California.


We also had fabulous brides...


...fizzing in expectation before their ceremony...


...during Bridal Prep.


We've had brides on stairs...


...on grass...


...in amazing venues...


...and even on a vintage fire escape of an ageing cricket pavilion we found just round the corner from the venue.


We had a groom secretly bring the bride's horse to the wedding. It was a complete surprise to the bride and guests until after the ceremony.


We even had a blue rhino at a wedding...it was actually part of a series of rhino sculptures funded by Marwell Zoo for charity during the Autumn.


We even had a wedding on Red Nose Day.


We had a groom on a Buckeroo ride...


...and a bride at the cricket crease...


...and the "boys" against a cricket sight screen.


We've had glorious sun and fabulous venues.


We've had cosy Christmas weddings.


We've had drama...


...and fun...


...and elegance...


...and style...


...great groups...


...and fantastic confetti


...and private moments.


We've had reflections in mirrors....


...and reflections in water...


...and reflective moments...remembering loved ones.


We've had walks through Spring petals...


...and walks through the grounds of grand venues.


We've had fabulous cakes...


...and creative themes.


We had special moments in the last few minutes of daylight...


...and even just after the sun had gone down.


Even after dark and in the rain, we had some great times. Here the groom wanted a shot with himself and his groomsmen looking at the pocket watches he'd given them as presents.


Of all the special weddings we had in 2013, surely the most extraordinary was the hand-fasting ceremony at Stonehenge at sunset just after the Summer Solstice.


We had lovely weddings at lovely venues...but best of all we had lovely couples...


...whose love for each other was a privilege to witness.


Jacqui and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our couples, all their guests and all their wedding professionals for our time with them during 2013...it was indeed an exceptional year.

Thank you
