Fee and Pete | Hannington, Hampshire Wedding

Saturday saw me at Fee and Pete’s lovely wedding in the little Hampshire village of  Hannington, not far from Basingstoke. The day was crisp and clear, a little cool but pretty much perfect for the day as Fee had planned to walk from home to the church. The reception was held in Fee’s parent’s garden, a magnificent marquee was set up and beautifully decorated. The day was a great success, everything seemed to go very smoothly and the bride and groom and their families made me feel very welcome. As usual, here are a few favourite photographs from the day so far. If you would like to know when the rest are available for online viewing drop me a line and I will let you know. Comments (click the link at the bottom of this post) welcome as always.

I started the day documenting the bridal preparations at home.

Village weddings are lovely when the bride and groom can walk from the church to the reception.

This image taken as all the guests had left the garden reception and headed into the marquee for the meal. Weddings can be a bit of a whirlwind for the bride and groom and it’s lovely to see them steal a few minutes for themselves. I like the depth in this photograph as well – the deserted chairs. The long shadows tell you it’s taken towards the end of the day as well.

The wedding wellies – essential for off-road brides.

The marquee was beautifully decorated. It looked fantastic and had wonderful views.

Pete and Fee were waiting outside the marquee for a few minutes whilst the guests were seated. I love this little sequence of images.

Thanks again Pete and Fee, I hope you have a fantastic honeymoon and I look forward to seeing you soon.

    Hi Simon

    Just had our first glimpse of your blog and our big day.

    WOW!!! You’ve got some amazing shots on here and we are so so pleased that we chose you. Thanks for being so good at your job and for not being the intimidating wedding photographer that every bride and groom fears!!

    Jamaica is more than we could have hoped for so it truly matches our wedding.

    Can’t wait to see the rest of the photos when we get back – we’re both so excited to see them all.

    Thanks again
    Pete and Fee

    Wow beautiful photos and what a stunning dress! You look amazing in it. May I ask what dress it is? The photos are lovely and relaxed… Think will have to enquire for our wedding next summer!

    Thanks Zoe. The jacket that Fee wore is quite unusual isn’t it? A lovely addition if you think your day might be a bit cool in the morning or evening.
