Lucy and Ross get married in Winchester – Winchester Royal Hotel Wedding Photography
Lucy and Ross got married early September at the amazing St Cross Hospital in Winchester. I met Lucy at her home in the morning where she was getting ready with her Mum, sister and bridesmaids. There was a bit of a disaster with the dress in the morning when numerous buttons from the lower back decided to ping off! Lucy’s poor Mum had to sew them back on and sew Lucy into her dress! It wasn’t the ideal situation for Lucy and her Mum but we managed to get to the church on time and once there everyone felt so much more relaxed.
My second photographer was the beautiful Rachel Haward and she met Ross and the boys at The Bell Inn before they all went to the church. The service was amazing. The church up at St Cross never fails to wow me – it’s huge and breathtakingly beautiful – perfect for photos!
After the ceremony was over, we had a few light spits of rain but luckily the sun came out right on cue for the couple shots! Lucy, Ross and I went round the back of the church into the private gardens for some beautiful photos of the two of them together. They then travelled down into Winchester city centre to the Winchester Royal Hotel where the reception was being held.
When we arrived at Winchester Royal Hotel, Rachel and I captured extra guest shots as well as the last family formal photographs before guests went in for the dinner.
After speeches, the weather was still very warm outside and guests made their way back into the gardens to enjoy the last of the sunshine. Ross enjoyed a cheeky cigar with the ushers, best man and the Dad’s – it was good fun, although I’m not sure they actually all enjoyed the smoke!
The evening began with the first dance and an amazing band! Rachel and I left shortly after the dancing and left everyone to party the rest of the night away.
Thanks Lucy and Ross – an excellent wedding – have a brilliant life together x x x
