Relaxed Country garden marquee Wedding in Wherwell Hampshire.
When Dave and Jennie first got in touch with us about their Country garden wedding in Hampshire, we were so excited – they were planning a relaxed and laid back marquee wedding with a religious ceremony, lawn games and even a live band. Dave and Jennie are the loveliest people and we couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
The excitement before the wedding
I rocked up at The Peat Spade Inn, where the Dave and his friends were getting ready, it was really chilled because everyone was in a good mood. There may have been a few nervous jitters, but nothing a small beer couldn’t help. Debbie joined Jennie and the girls at her mums and again a really nice chilled out vibe was going on. They were loving being pampered & before you knew it, it was time to get hitched.
The wedding took place at St Peter & Holy cross and was a really nice personalised religious ceremony. They had a beautiful personal service, with some lovely reading & a full choir, which everyone enjoyed. After the ceremony, there was a big cheer from everyone, and then we travelled to the reception. It wasn’t that far, just walked through the gate next door.
The wedding reception took place at Wherwell Priory. It was a bright and sunny day, which was what the couple had hoped for. Just such a perfect setting for a country garden wedding.
While the guests were drinking Prosecco & tucking into the yummy canapes, we did some family photos and captured lots of little candid moments. Their wedding breakfast was quite early, & we knew we had the lovely early evening light to look forward to, so we let Jennie & Dave just chill with their guests after the family photos were done. There were some intense garden games taking shape as well as a live 3 piece Irish band playing throughout which gave the afternoon a really chilled vibe. For the wedding breakfast, they had proper wedding grub, and it was super yummy. After dinner there were a few speeches, then everyone headed back onto the lawn to let dinner go down whilst the band set up.
We used this time to take a walk with Jennie & Dave round the gardens. The light was awesome, so we took full advantage of this & even found a friendly photo bomber.
