Owen and Amanda’s Lainston House Summer Wedding Photography
Lainston House Summer Wedding Photography – Owen and Amanda married in Winchester at St Peter’s Church on a warm day in June. Owen got ready for the big day at the couple’s home address in Winchester before making his way to the church with the boys for photos with my second photographer Rachel. Amanda got ready at Lainston House Hotel with her bridesmaids. Lainston House is one of my favourite venues in Hampshire. It is so gorgeous – the place where you dream of getting married as a little girl.

The rooms are stunning and provide plenty of space for bigger bridal parties to get ready! Amanda had two stunning dresses ready for her wedding day. A traditional white lace gown with full length sleeves and a red lace dress for the evening celebrations to involve the traditional Chinese wedding elements into the day.
After the church service in Winchester we all made our way back to Lainston House for drinks and canapés. The weather was stunning and guests enjoyed the gardens while Rachel and I took photos. I began to capture lots of natural images while everyone was congratulating the new Mr and Mrs. Owen, Amanda and myself spent some time creating beautiful couple portraits during the rest of the reception time and before going into dinner we took a large group photo of the whole bridal party on the front lawn.
The guests sat down to a beautiful wedding breakfast while Rachel and myself photographed the venue and planned some couple images for the evening. After the main courses were cleared away Owen and Amanda went back to the main hotel to welcome their guests to their dessert buffet! The choice was incredible, such pretty little cakes, cheese and goodies, some traditionally Chinese and other traditionally Welsh to please Owen’s family too.
After more couple images in the softer evening light, the first dance began and the bridal party continued the celebrations into the evening. Thanks for a wonderful Lainston House Wedding you too. x x x
