Sandra & Andrew’s wedding – Avington Park Wedding Photography
Avington Park wedding photography – my favourite! If you have never been to the amazing Avington Park then I highly recommend a visit. They are open to the public from May to September and it’s the most beautiful place to have afternoon tea!
On 24th June 2017 I was lucky enough to photograph Sandra and Andrew’s beautiful wedding here. They got married on a warm and dry summers day and it was perfect start to end! Sandra got ready with her Mum, sister and bridesmaid at Avington. They had the wonderful Sarah Abbott to do hair and make-up. Sarah was part of my own wedding and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Here is her website – check her out!
Our lovely Groom Andrew was getting ready with his Ushers at the Winchester Royal Hotel. My second photographer Rachel was there to capture the boys as they got ready too.
Sandra is from America and Andrew is English. There were some lovely touches to celebrate the joining of the two countries. The men wore one sock with the British flag on and one with the American flag on!
The ceremony took place in the Ball Room at Avington. This is the most spectacular room of the house and I have never seen it as beautiful as I did on this day! Sandra and Andrew had so many flowers. It was the most stunning wedding I have witnessed to date!
Outside after the ceremony we had some confetti photos out the front of Avington Park. Guests were treated to tours of the house and Sandra, Andrew and I wandered around the grounds for couple photos. It was a perfect afternoon!
Evening celebrations kicked off just before speeches with a special surprise visit from the Secret Singers! These guys are AMAZING! I first saw them back in 2013 and I decided right there and then that I wanted them for my own wedding. I booked them for my wedding in 2016 and it was one of the best things about the day! Sandra booked them off my recommendation and they didn’t disappoint – such a fantastic addition to any wedding day.
To end the wedding, Sandra and Andrew left at midnight through a sparkler tunnel! This is quite a traditional American thing to do and I was pleased I could be there to capture that moment for them. Overall, a perfect wedding. Completely beautiful in every way!
