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.
When your father-in-law laughs at your jokes, you know you’re doing well.

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