Kim and Mark’s Marwell Hall Wedding Photography
Meet the lovely Kim and Mark. Mark is from Australia and Kim currently lives over there with him. They chose to have their wedding in England to be close to Kim’s family and where she grew up.
I began my day at Marwell Hotel with Kim, her bridesmaids and her Mum and photographed the girls as they got ready. Kim has such a wonderful quirky style. She has the most amazing vibrant red hair. She looked stunning, especially at this time of year as it complimented the beautiful changing colours of the Autumnal leaves. Kim chose the amazing brand, Irregular Choice, for her shoes. If you don’t know this brand then prepare to become addicted! Their shoes are all amazing – almost like pantomime shoes, each pair is unique and beautiful. I have two pairs myself and I’m sure my collection will grow to more!
My second photographer was the lovely Ashley Reynolds. She met Mark and the boys at Marwell Hall and captured guests as they began to arrive.
The ceremony was perfect – short and sweet but really meaningful. Kim looked so radiant coming up the aisle and you could tell by Mark’s face that he was over the moon seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time.
After the ceremony guests went outside to enjoy canapés and some bubbly while I shot plenty of candid image as well as the standard group shots too. Kim, Mark and I then went down to the lemur enclosure where the couple enjoyed their ‘Animal Encounter’! Marwell Hall offer this as part of their wedding packages. It’s amazing fun! You can choose between lemurs, penguins and giraffes and get to feed and get close to the animals. We got some fun images of them with the lemurs – it did take a while for them to become brave enough to get close to us but when they did it was fantastic.
As the evening drew nearer, guests made their way to the marquee for speeches. Kim’s Dad said some lovely words about how gorgeous his daughter looked and how proud he was of her. Mark’s speech was wonderful and he handed out so many lovely gifts to the bridal party to show his appreciation of their help on the day.
At this point, Ashley and I left everyone to enjoy their meal and the rest of the day.
Thank you to Kim and Mark – you were a delight to photograph and it was so wonderful to be a part of such a fun and vibrant day! x x x
