Philippa and George get married at Northington in Winchester – Winchester Wedding Photography
Philippa and George booked their Winchester Wedding Photography on a very chilly day in February at Northington Church in Winchester. It was cold, but we were thankful that it was a dry day! Philippa booked me as a surprise for George while he was away with the Navy. Originally they decided not to have a photographer but after much thought they decided they couldn’t leave the responsibility of taking photos up to a family member or a friend and were worried about the quality of images that would be achieved if they did so.
I met George at the church a little before the ceremony begun. He looked fantastic in his dusky blue suit with yellow tie and buttonhole – it was nice to see something different in terms of colour. George posed for some portraits for me with his best man and then I snapped away as they greeted the early arriving guests. When 11am drew nearer, everyone as ushered indoors while I waited for Philippa to arrive with her Dad.
The car was right on time and so I had a few moments to capture Philippa in the car and with her Dad before they headed on in to the warmth of the church. Philippa looked so beautiful! She had a very cute, shorter, just below knee length dress on which I absolutely adored. It was strapless with an elegant lace overlay – just perfect and beautiful on her figure too. Her veil finished the dress off and her flowers complimented the buttonholes of the groom and bestman beautifully.
The service began at 11am and a few tears were shed during the exchange of rings. Afterwards we went down the the basement of the church which is where the register signing takes places. Philippa and George then made their way back out into the chilly February air ready for photos!
After group images and bridal party images were taken, the 3 of us stayed back to capture some lovely bridal and groom portraits. Just as we began the sky lifted slightly and it brightened just enough to give us some beautiful light for the images!
After the portraits were completed I left Philippa and George to finish the rest of their day with the friends and family and went home to warm up!
Thank you both for having me as a part of your special day! It was a pleasure to be your photographer – Winchester Wedding photography is always my favourite! x x x
