Elvetham Hotel Wedding Photography – Lucy and Jon get married in Hartley Wintney.
Lucy and Jon’s Elvetham hotel wedding photography was one that I had been looking forward to for months and months! From our first initial meeting I knew this would be a wedding to get excited about!
Lucy and Jon are so passionate and their love for each other is overwhelming. We got on straight away (might have been something to do with our mutual love of all things cat!). When they began to tell me about their beautiful plans, I knew my Elvetham Hotel wedding photography was going to be epic.
Everything was set out in the most perfect way at the Elvetham Hotel. It is without doubt one of my favourite venues. It has many rooms, all elegantly decorated, along with it’s spectacular gardens and stunning views. I was spoilt for choice with where to do couple shots but luckily Lucy and Jon were up for having lots of images taken around the whole of the hotel.

Lucy got ready with her Mum, sister and the bridesmaids at the Elvetham Hotel. The room they got ready in was bright and airy – in other words perfect for photography! Lucy looked radiant, she made a stunning bride. Jon her husband-to-be looked absolutely gorgeous too. They really were both such a pleasure to photograph – simplystunning the pair of them!
This ceremony actually had me blinking away tears behind my camera. I really have never seen a love quite as strong as this. Jon’s face as Lucy walked down the aisle was one of complete and utter ‘how on earth did I get this lucky’? He was fighting back the tears, hand over mouth, completely taken aback at how breathtakingly beautiful Lucy looked . It honestly was a moment I will never forget – true love at it’s best.
The remainder of the ceremony was emotional and wonderful. Just when I thought I’d done well to resist any more tears, after the ceremony I was tested again, as they shared the most wonderful embrace. I almost felt guilty for snapping some images at that moment because it was a moment so precious and private that I really felt like no one else should have seen it. Luckily I don’t think they even really noticed I was there as they were so wrapped up in the moment of becoming husband and wife.
The Elvetham Hotel did a fantastic job of taking care of the running of the day. We went off after the ceremony to do some couple shots while guests were taken care of with canapés and drinks. There was also just enough time at this point to capture the guest and group shots before Lucy and Jon sat down for speeches and food.
I shall let the rest of the images do the rest of the talking. Thanks to an amazing couple for having me as your photographer. Your wedding really was something special and I shall forever be grateful that you invited me to capture it for you x x x
