Venue: South Lawn Hotel

A Christmas-themed extravaganza of a wedding, at the lovely South Lawn Hotel in Milford-on-sea. If you're going to get married during Christmas week, then you may as well go all out with a Christmas theme, this time, mixed with South African touches of native flowers and safari animals as a fun nod to the Groom's homeland.

My Favourite Part of the Day:

It took over a year and 3 reschedules and location changes to make this couples big day finally come together (thanks for nothing, Covid). But it did mean that this was one of the happiest couples i've ever photographed. They were just so thrilled to finally be getting married, they couldn't stop grinning all day. They had a huge wedding party, which I love love love, their portraits were photobombed by gorgeous New Forest ponies AND there is something incredible and confident about a bride who dresses her 5 bridesmaids in floor length, white gowns. That's a bride who knows that no-one could ever outshine her on her big day. There was so much I loved about this day!
