I documented Victoria and Ben’s grand wedding celebration over the weekend, the marriage was held at the magnificent Highcliffe Castle in Dorset followed by a home marquee wedding reception at Ben’s Dad’s in St Leonards. I met up with Ben and his groomsmen early in the morning as they added some finishing touches to the wedding decorations.
Victoria and her bridesmaids got ready at a quaint country cottage in Burley, the New Forest, Hampshire. I encountered some typical New Forest ‘traffic’ (horses) on route to Highcliffe Castle. Victoria is Canadian, so there were some Canadian touches to the wedding which included the bridesmaids and groomsmen standing up alongside the couple as they got married, which I thought was lovely.
Ben is from London, a cheeky chappy, great fun to be around. Victoria is so elegant and glamorous. They make a lovely couple and the wedding was a joy to photograph, I am so chuffed to have been given the honour in documenting all the love and friendship of the joyous occasion.
A BIG congratulations to the newlyweds Victoria and Ben!
