Hampshire Wedding Photographer – Emily & Steve’s wedding at The Elvetham

The Elvetham Wedding photography – About 18 months ago I attended a good friend’s wedding at the Elvetham (a beautiful hotel and wedding venue in Hampshire, near Hartley Wintney) and I thought…”Ooh, I’d like to photograph a wedding here”.  Yes, I do find it hard to switch off from the day job when a guest at friend’s weddings!  Anyway, I was therefore delighted when Steve and Emily asked me to photograph their big day at The Elvetham.

All was calm when I arrived in the (giant!) room where Emily was getting ready with her bridesmaids and mum…partly due to a brilliant make up artist who kindly sewed a bridesmaid shoe back together after a bit of a wardrobe malfunction!  Emily walked down the huge staircase towards the ceremony looking absolutely beautiful…I love a wedding venue with a grand staircase, always nice to make a dramatic entry.  The look on Steve’s face as Emily and her dad walked down the aisle was wonderful.  Emily couldn’t stop grinning during the ceremony – it was like she lit up when she saw Steve.

After the meal and speeches (including a brilliant one from Emily – yay, I love a bride’s wedding speech!) it was on to the dancing.  The wedding band were Fully Funktional, who I’ve seen perform a few times and who are BRILLIANT!  They were really sweet with the kids (teaching them to play blow up guitars) and generally rocked the place.  And then when I thought the wedding couldn’t get any better, we all went outside for an incredible firework display.

Wow, what a day!  Congratulations Emily and Steve.
