Basingstoke Country Hotel Wedding Photographer

Amy & Daniel Britten

Daniel and Amy got married on Saturday April 4th 2015 at North Camp Methodist Church in Farnborough. I had to capture this wedding with a different approach to normal, as both Dan and Amy wanted more traditional photos of their wedding day. Amy looked beautiful in a traditional style white dress, accompanied by her two wonderful bridesmaids dressed in purple. Daniel and his groomsmen wore traditional matching grey suits with purple cravats and handkerchiefs to match the bridesmaids.

The ceremony was wonderful, packed front to back with friends and family, it was followed by cake and drinks for everyone before the main wedding party headed over to the Basingstoke Country Hotel, Hampshire. Daniel and Amy took a ride in a stunning 1937 Rolls Royce Sedanca De Ville, giving them sometime to reflect and enjoy the moment together.

The Basingstoke Country Hotel, Hampshire is just off the A30 on the outskirts of Basingstoke. It is set within its own grounds and made for an excellent wedding venue, offering plenty of photo opportunities. Upon arrival we grabbed a few shots outside of the venue before heading inside for drinks reception and formal photos.

After the formal photos we headed in for speeches before guests sat down for the wedding breakfast. The speeches were fantastic filled with plenty of emotion and of course the embarrassing stories provided by the best men!

Earlier in the day I spotted an iron framed bandstand which I knew would make a great shot. So after wedding breakfast, I took Dan and Amy outside to do some portraits and made the most the bandstand capturing some great portraits. I knew this shot wasn’t going to keep within the ask of traditional photos, but it paid off as they both loved the image.

It was a total pleasure to photograph such a wonderful day full of happiness and joy! I wish Amy and Dan the very best for the future, thank you for using Matthew Lawrence Photography.
