Bartley Lodge Wedding Photography
Today saw me at Bartley Lodge Hotel in the gorgeous New Forest. I was there second shooting for Tim for the wedding of Jess and Mike (both wedding photographers). What an awesome day! I started off driving past Bartley Lodge Hotel on my way to see Mike in the morning to get some getting ready shots. I love being able to photograph groom preparation as it’s a great contrast to the bride preparation images and really helps enhance the story telling I like to do at a wedding. A wedding is after all a story that is best told with photographs that mean something. After all it is wedding photographs that remain after all the cake and food is eaten. Speaking of food the bacon and cheeseburger we had for our mini wedding breakfast was very nice indeed. Well recommended. In fact more wedding venues should do burger and chips for the wedding breakfast. Anyway I digress back to the wedding and the photographs. After spending some time with Mike it was off to the church to see some more guests arrive.
We were very lucky with the weather in the new forest and there was no sign of recent thunderstorms which was lovely! After the service is was back to Bartley lodge for a few group photographs which Tim did leaving me free to do my favourite reportage wedding photography and capturing guests mid-laugh.
Then after the aforementioned burger it was time for some very emotional speeches. Some proper heartfelt speeches today. Well done guys for resisting the internet speech. The guests all then went onto the lovely lawn to relax before the evening guests and first dance.
What a great day!
Here’s a selection of my favorites from the wedding at Bartley Lodge Hotel.
