Firstly I would like to thank the lovely Michelle and Sarah for having me along as their wedding photographer. Their intimate Hampshire wedding took place at Careys Manor in the beautiful New Forest. Michelle and Sarah arranged their civil partnership here as it is a place where they have both spent time together relaxing and enjoying the countryside.
I met up with the ladies as they were just adding the final touches to their wedding outfits. They were both nervous and excited. As the wedding guests started to arrive there was a fantastic atmosphere in the hotel. Michelle and Sarah have a wonderful warmth about them and everyone was greeted with a hug. The civil partnership ceremony room was quite quirky with sofas in addition to the formal chairs. The ceremony was delightful, touching with moments of fun and good humour.
One of their friends asked me to capture something Michelle is well known for, winking. Happy to report there were a few instances that were perfect. It was an absolute pleasure and honour to have documented their wedding day.
