A Scorcher at Southdowns Manor

Finian and Leanne's wedding was an outside ceremony at Southdowns Manor not far from Rogate near Petersfield. It's a remote place just across the Hampshire border and into West Sussex - it's not often we venture into foreign territories but we are so glad we did.

Their wedding was at the beginning of May but oh my word it could have been high Summer. It was glorious.

Leanne was meticulous in her preparations and the result was truly stunning.

Throughout the entire ceremony, Finian could not take his eyes off of his gorgeous bride...

...and it was obvious to everyone as to why. 

We spent a little time with them in the grounds of Southdowns...

...and what a perfect day it was for them.

Their speeches were a lot of fun but even then, Finian could not take his eyes off his gorgeous new wife.

As the sun went down on their perfect day, we took them back into the gardens for some romantic portraits... 

...but then it was time for silliness and it was up to the honeymoon suite where all the bridesmaids and groomsmen joined the bride and groom in the hot-tub.

During their First Dance they had their guests spell-bound and I don't even think they noticed. It was so touching to watch. They were so wrapped up in each other's company that I'm certain for that moment they felt as though they were the only two people on the planet.

Their wedding was a wonderful day in every way and they were truly blessed with the weather. Their guests were great fun and we had a brilliant day with them.

We wish Finian and Leanne the happiest of lives together.

Laughter and Tenderness at Sandford Springs

Daniel and Natasha had their amazing Spring wedding in Ramsdell Church and Sandford Springs Golf Course.

Bridal Prep was in the most perfectly named house ever - "Love Days Farm House." Is there ever a better named place for Bridal Prep?

Bridal Prep itself went without a hitch and perfectly to schedule...

...and with plenty of fun.

At the church, whilst waiting for Natasha, one of their friends rehearsed the hymns... 

...with the guests.

Daniel was stunned when his bride met him at the top of the aisle.

Ramsdell Church was a really nice church...  

and the ceremony was very moving.

As we came out of the church it was still overcast...

...but by the time Daniel and Natasha had driven to Sandford Springs...

...the sun started to come out...

...just long enough to get some blue sky romantic portraits of them.

By the time we got to the bridge with them the sun had gone back in but a bit of back-light helped to spice up the bridge for us.

The connection between these two was absolutely brilliant.

When the speeches began... became clear that Daniel was going to be the butt of many of the jokes...

...much to Natasha's enjoyment.

Daniel and Natasha's wedding was full of laughter and energy and tender moments. It was an absolutely brilliant day.

We wish them both all our very best wishes for the future.
