Wedding Of Mr & Mrs Winslade

Wedding Of Mr & Mrs Winslade

When my cousin asked me to photograph her wedding, I knew it would be slightly different from the norm and Emily Sked & Justin Winslade didn’t disappoint!

Emily got ready at her parents house in Drayton with their 3 Daughters, Hollie, Eva & Florence.  A vintage car turned up to take them to The Square Tower in Old Portsmouth (http://www.squaretower.co.uk) and we were all greeted by Mr Square Tower himself, Steve!
The Ceremony was held at the beautiful building and the groom had a tear or two as Emily walked down the aisle led by their 3 daughters.  After the ceremony we walked across to The Royal Garrison Church, which I have to say is one of my favourite places for photos (https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/royal-garrison-church-portsmouth/)
The reception was held at Moneyfields Social Club in Milton (http://www.moneyfieldsssc.co.uk/hall-hire/) where all the guests tucked into a lovely meal with prosecco to toast.
The Bestmans speech was hilarious and one of the best we have seen, it involved the bestman riding on a bike trying to find the speech (this was a video)!

Wedding of Mrs & Mrs Sterland @ Tournerbury Woods Estate

Wedding of Mrs & Mrs Sterland @ Tournerbury Woods Estate

Kerry & Mandy Sterland were married at Tournerbury Woods Estate (www.tournerbury.com) on Wednesday 25th July 2018.  It must of been the hottest day to date, but it was one of the loveliest I have had the pleasure of photographing.  We arrived for bridal prep where both brides were getting ready in the cottage on site.

Their Dog did a great job of bringing the rings to them during the ceremony which was held outside with hay bales for seating!   A live band played until later into the night and the couple honeymooned at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
Wedding of Mr & Mrs Read @ Portsmouth Registry Office

Wedding of Mr & Mrs Read @ Portsmouth Registry Office

Saturday 23rd June 2018 was a very very hot day, it was also Ann & John Read’s wedding day.  They had chosen Portsmouth Registry Office for their ceremony (www.portmouth.gov.uk/ext/registrars/life-events-and-services) with the reception held at The Railway Club in Fratton.  Hair was by Joanna Brown at Brown’s Hair Salon, and the bride did her own make up. Just over 40 family and friends joined the couple as they took their vows, including my husband as he is the brides cousin!  Over 100 others joined the couple later for the after party.

Wedding of Mr & Mrs Lyons @ The Porthouse Port Solent

Tina Kemp married Kev Lyons on Saturday 4th August 2018 at The Porthouse Port Solent (www.theporthouse.org).  Tina is a wedding hair specialist  (Tinas Mobile Hairdressing on Facebook 07868899446) and I have worked along her a few times so it was a pleasure to photograph her wedding.  I also had the added bonus of working with some of my favourites, Kim Kingston from The Beauty Shed (www.thebeautyshedsouthsea.co.uk) who did Tina & her bridesmaids make up, and Jazz who did everyones hair (www.jazzrawlinsbridal.co.uk).  I also had the pleasure of working alongside Clare Maker who was not only a bridesmaid but she blew us away with the stunning flowers (Bespoke Floristry by Clare on Facebook 07535677218).  The room was made extra pretty by Vintage Rose Creations (www.vintagerosecreations.co.uk).  The ceremony was very emotional and I have to say I did enjoy the after party (hic)

Wedding of Mr & Mrs Clark – Holiday Inn, Southsea

Wedding of Mr & Mrs Clark – Holiday Inn, Southsea

Saturday 11 August took us to The Holiday Inn in Southsea (www.ihg.com/Holiday_Inn/Southsea) for the wedding of Helen Connolly and Matthew Clark. The wedding was due to take place at 2pm, but due the the Southsea Kite Festival traffic, things were slightly delayed, but this didn’t make the day any less enjoyable at all. Hair was by Amber Tee and Make up was by Phang, who both did a fabulous job. The bride decided on the beautiful Rock Gardens near The Pyramids for their couple shots and a quick stop off to the Kite Festival on the way back!
