THE OLD THORNS HOTEL - HAMPSHIRE
This was my first time shooting a wedding at the old thorns hotel, it was an amazing venue with the lovely golf course as a back drop. Lauren and charlie were an absolute dream to photograph, The day started quite early with the bridal preparations and there were a few nerves in the room. Lauren soon became chilled and there was a lot of people popping in to wish her luck. while lauren was having some time with her friends i made my way over to the other side of the venue where the groom and his best man and usher's were getting ready. I got some shots of the boys having a laugh before making my way back the the bride to be. As soon as the dress was on and done up it was time to make our way down to the ceremony chapel. Once the ceremony was over everybody headed outside in the glorious sunshine. When the couple had said their hello's to guest we were whisked off across the golf course in the buggy by the staff for some shots. Once we were back and everyone had relaxed i got some more natural shots of people enjoying the day before heading the the gatsby room for the meal and reception. The speeches were done and it was then on to the first dance and cake cutting, the bride and father dance was spectacular, it wasn't the usual dance but more of an upbeat rehearsed dance with the bridesmaids as well. It was such a great day! Here are a few from Lauren and charlie's big day.
