The Elvetham Hotel Wedding, Hook, Hampshire Wedding Photographer
Chen & Sally
I met Chen and Sally before their wedding day, for an engagement shoot on Brighton seafront. After meeting this amazing couple and capturing their smiley nature first hand, I couldn’t wait to photograph their upcoming ceremony.
Chen and Sally’s beautiful wedding was held at the Elvetham Hotel wedding venue in the quaint Hampshire countryside. Surrounded by 35 acres of exquisite grounds, the 19th century architecture and attentive staff ensured a day to remember for both the couple and their guests.
Sally got ready at the hotel’s premium Bridal Changing Room, with hair and make up by Maggie & Karen Hair & Makeup Design. Meanwhile, in Southampton, Chen and his best man, Brett, got suited up at Brett’s home before heading to the venue.
The ceremony was intimate and heartfelt; both the bride and groom looked beautiful and elated throughout the proceedings. Afterwards, their guests enjoyed garden games and a confetti shoot in the stunning grounds before heading in for the reception.
Beautiful touches really made this wedding unique. Sally had lovingly made all the table favours herself, and all stationary and decorations were made by the couple. They had both had dance lessons before their first dance – which was executed beautifully and made for some stunning portraits of them two of them.
My other favourite shots were of the sparklers and the newlyweds in front of a warm autumn sunset.
Congratulations to Sally and Chen – not only for their happy marriage but for their beautifully tender and personal day at a breathtaking venue.
