Maggi and Andrew are married at Avington Park – Avington Park Wedding Photographer
Maggi and Andrew booked me to be their Avington Park wedding photographer for their April 2015 wedding. Avington Park is most certainly one of Hampshire’s best venues for a wedding. It is so grand and luxurious – a perfect venue for rain or shine! We were lucky with the weather and woke up to some glorious sunshine. I met the guests, along with Andrew over at Avington Park. They arrived by bus – not just any bus a special big red bus booked especially for the wedding day! A great way to arrive in style! The kids made their way to run and play on the never ending grassy lawn, while the grown ups enjoyed a welcome glass of champers out by the front of Avington Park.
Andrew looked not the least bit nervous as he welcomed his guests while they waited for the beautiful Maggi to arrive. When she did get there, she arrived by car with one of her Brothers. Being her second marriage, Maggi opted for a gold gown rather than white. She looked so incredible and I knew Andrew would be blown away. At this point the guests had been ushered up to the ballroom to take their seats, so this gave us a couple of minutes to get some pictures before Maggi went inside.
When Maggi walked down the aisle towards Andrew she looked calm and serene. Words and vows were exchanged beautifully with all the guests looking on in delight, proudly smiling at the new Mr and Mrs!
After the marriage we all went outdoors where I took the group photographs and some couple portraits of the happy couple. The reception venue wasn’t Avington – it was El Sabio, a gorgeous little Tapas restaurant in the centre of Winchester. If you haven’t already been there I can highly recommend it – the food is amazing. Maggi and Andrew actually live very close to the restaurant and are regular customers so they couldn’t think of a more perfect setting for enjoying the rest of their day with their family and friends. It worked out perfectly as they even managed some portraits of them with their precious little pet dog before she was taken home again.
Thanks so much to a wonderful couple for booking me – you’re both so lovely and I wish you a long and happy life together. x x x
