Rhinefield House Wedding – Catherine & Alex – Part One
Rhinefield house wedding
It was gorgeous weather for Alex and Catherine’s wedding at Rhinefield House wedding one of those cold bright days you often get at this time of year. Low winter sunlight and a dusting of snow on the ground made it a stunning day to take pictures. Winter weddings don’t get much better than this!
I’d been excited to photograph their wedding at The Priory Christchurch as it’s one of my favourite parts of the world. The couple had planned to tie the knot at The Priory and then head to Rhinefield House Hotel in the heart of the New Forest for their Rhinefield House wedding reception.
The Priory is such a stunning church to photograph in. The church is huge and light was great and their vicar very kindly allowed me to shoot from the front which is always the best place to capture all the emotions and expressions during the service.
I loved their service – it was crammed full of smiles and emotions and some of my favourite hymns were sung. The best part though was the looks exchanged between Alex and Catherine. It was a real pleasure to shoot, especially the amazing sequence of images when Catherine walked down the aisle with her father.
I really hope I get the opportunity to shoot a wedding at The Priory Christchurch again, it has to be one of my favourite ever churches!
Before the wedding at The Priory Christchurch, I started the day with Catherine’s wedding preparations at The Kings Arms also in Christchurch.
I decided to split this blog into 2 parts so I could share more of the images I shot that day, here are some of my favourites in part one – Their Wedding at The Priory Christchurch…..
